Only 23 days until summer and I am so excited. The school year is winding down quickly for me and I am thrilled that I will get to have my life back. I am working full time for the summer but I am so excited to not have homework. Life has been pretty crazy this semester, therefore, I have lost touch with a lot of people and even a little bit with myself…it seems like I am always doing homework and studying, but hey, the life of a nursing student. I have several goals for the summer and I thought that I would list just a few:

1. Read. I have missed reading recreationally so much. Every now and then I will get a night where I will spend 20-30 minutes reading, but it is rare.

2. See family and friends at least once a week. I will be working full time but I am hoping that the weekends will bring me some freedom and with the fact that I am staying in Tacoma over the summer, I am really going to try to get together with the people who mean the most to me.

3. RELAX. I do not want stress in my life over summer.

4. Enjoy myself.

Those are just a few of my goals and it will be interesting to see what working full time will bring to me. I have never worked full time and and I am really looking forward to the paychecks 🙂

I hope everyone is having a great beginning to their May and who knows, the next time I get time to post something, it may be summer!

I am just sitting here listening to my new music, eating some dinner, and enjoying a quiet evening. I had a fabulous weekend going to a wedding, hanging out with the boyfriend (who is on his way over here right now with some skinny cows, yum!), and getting to see my sister and her kiddies. This time by myself and this wonderful music is just allowing me to reflect on the things that are happening in my life right now and I am so fortunate! First of all, I have the greatest best friend ever (Kimmi), an amazing family, and a wonderful boyfriend. However, I think that I am most fortunate because I get to go to nursing school in the fall (woohoo!) and I cannot wait to move! My room is just filling up with things that I am taking with me and as more things on the dorm room wish list get crossed off, I think of more things I need and want. I will definitely be posting pictures on here when I get settled but it is pretty much going to be amazing!

Also, I have been sewing like a maniac so I will be posting some pictures of my finished projects soon as well as pictures from all of my vacations this summer; I still have 2 more coming! I have a lot of drafts as well, I am terrible, so more exciting posts will be coming…I promise!
