After tomorrow only 8 weeks!!

Sheesh, 8 weeks until school starts and guess who has lost NO weight!!!  Yep, me.  I mean seriously, I don't know what I'm thinking.  Those white scrubs are starting to haunt my nightmares!! If only I looked this good in white scrubs! I got a letter in the mail today from school saying I had $110.00 in tickets, haha.  Guess I should have stuck with the student parking lot & not the teacher parking lot huh?  Oh well, I wonder if they can just take it out of my student loan money?  Speaking of which, I think I really need to look into some scholarships.  I want to, but that whole process just seems so daunting... Maybe I'll go in & talk to one of the financial aid people & they can point me in the right direction.  I am sweating bullets just thinking about it.  Last semester I went into debt $10,500 & this year it's like $12,500.  I mean by the time I'm done with my BSN I will be in debt $35,000!!!!!!!! I mean and that's from a STATE school!

Do It Anyway!

Found this on a blog by a DNP student, it's from Mother Teresa and I loved it.  I thought it was appropriate for my school blog because sometimes we just don't want to take another test, or study one more hour, or re-write our notes, but we need to just DO IT ANYWAY .  And in the end we need to remember that the reason we are caregivers is to help others and we should always treat those people as if we are treating our Father (in heaven).  If we practice like this then how can we do wrong?   "DO IT ANYWAY" People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway . If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway . If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway . If you find serenity and happiness, people may

To the future & beyond...

The other day my nursing bestie & I were having a conversation about our future office.  Are we counting our chickens before the eggs have hatched?  I don't think so. I like to think we're speaking our future into being.  I know it sounds very "Secretish", but I just can't help but dream about the future.  I mean isn't that what people do?  Dream, think and plan for the future? Now I have to admit this is a new concept for me. It was born after my mother died.  My mom was a fly by the seat of your pants kind of girl and unfortunately (or fortunately it depends on how you look at it) I developed that way of living myself.  But what I found was, when you live your life without a plan, or without any concrete goals, life just seems to happen to you.  And by the time my mom passed away I decided that I was tired of life just happening to me, I wanted to take life by the throat and squeeze every good thing out of it that I could (that kind of sounds violent,

12 weeks!!

So yesterday I talked to my nursing bestie and he said what I've always said, he was bored, lol.  I TOLD him.  We were both lamenting that our program doesn't go through the summer like other programs around.  I mean seriously, we could be done TWO WHOLE SEMESTERS early if our program went through the summer months.  So after we got done complaining for a good 10 minutes I went and looked at my calendar & realized that we only have 12 weeks left until school starts again, woohoo.  So four weeks down, only 12 more to go.  And yes, I have actually started enjoying my summer. The kids are out of school & we've already been to the lake 3 times.  It's different from last summer though, this year we're actually having a spring, which is so nice.  Spring is tied for my favorite season.  I love it when the days get longer and it's warm enough to swim during the day, but still cook enough to wear a light jacket at night.  I'm sure the more summer goes and the
