End of School, Beginning of Life

So obviously I’ve been out of school for some time now. I completed my talked about 300+ hours as an RPN student and successfully passed my provincial exam. The feeling of passing that exam is indescribable. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such joy and overwhelming emotion for something.

I’m currently employed at a Long Term Care Center, not the place I envisioned myself as a new nurse, but in this day and age… You take what you can get, right? Don’t get me wrong, it’s an amazing and fulfilling job, just as I thought it would be but, I’m missing out on learning new skills from being inside a hospital.

I’ve always pictured myself inside an OR, watching the out-of-this-world surgeons performing a multitude of surgeries. It would be the most amazing thing to be able to witness! I’ve gotten this far, I know that someday I will be able to say I’ve accomplished my goal of getting into an OR. Perhaps I’ll even accomplish the goal of getting my RN 🙂 I will make it all happen!

Countdown til Last Year of College: 1 week.

Well, it’s that time again. School is basically here and do you think I’m ready? Nope.

I love school don’t get me wrong, but sometimes you just want to stay home with your hubby and cuddle and do absolutely nothing. Agreed? Thought so 🙂

Anyways, aside from wanting to stay home… I am very excited for the things and people that comes with college life.
New Friends
New Professors
All the new techniques and assessments ill be learning
Cafeteria food… Just kidding :-/
Finally working in the hospital!

I find it hard to believe that this will be my last year in my post secondary education. It’s kind of surreal. If you were to tell me 3-4 years ago that I was going to be in college for nursing and sitting at a 4.0 GPA, well, I would have laughed in your face and probably walked away.

Serious! I never thought I would ever make it here. Everyone knows the problem with having house bills, car payments, and visa debt. Basically, you can’t do anything but work and attempt to pay it all off before you die.

I still don’t know how my hubby and I managed to get me there. I thank him everyday (maybe not to him but I’m always thankful) for helping me have the chance to better myself through education. I hope to be the best nurse I can be and meet all types of people and fulfill my duties as a nurse 🙂

Thanks for reading
Take Care

If you have dreams never let anyone tell you that you cannot achieve them. If you want them, go out and make it happen. No one will do it for you.

Life Status: Perfectly, Relaxing.

Life: well, I feel like life is great for the place that I am at. I’m going into my last year of college and I am slightly nervous about it. However, I have an extremely supportive boyfriend and he is amazing. He will help me with anything if I ever needed it. Summer is going by way to fast and I am not happy about it.

For us it started off pretty slow with nothing super exciting happening. Then, we started with the camping and going places! Just last night we went out on the lake and we were tubing behind a crazy huge boat (not the biggest but the biggest I’ve ever been on). I haven’t had that much fun is a long time lol

So I I hope everyone else’s life’s are great and if not, keep positive… Good things come to those who have faith and patience.

Take Care.


You’ve Got Mail!

So today all my new textbooks for this coming year have arrive.

Good god, I can see that I am going to have a very busy school year and a next to nil social life. This is ok though, since, we all know that I am a large nerd 🙂

Sometimes however, I feel like I have forgotten a large part of what I learned in my previous school year. Is this normal? I feel like I will be behind everyone else once school starts in September. Man, I hope not 😦

Im sure I will be good to go!

Take Care.

P.S – what the heck is with this heat (for central canadians)-_- woozers!Image

My Second Year Is So Close!

So I am a second year nursing student, and I cannot wait for September. Yes, I miss my home dearly when I am gone and my other half, who I love to pieces. But someone has to bring home the bread, right? I unfortunately cannot do that while in school, even though I would in a heart beat.

Nursing is a pretty intense subject to be studying, which Im sure anyone who has would agree, other than you Einsteins out there 😉 I would highly recommend taking the course to anyone reading this, who is in the middle of making the hard decision as to what to do with your future.

I think this year, is going to be tough… very tough. (So I have heard :/), but one day at a time, right? Wish me luck in my Pathophysiology and my Pharmacology classes… eeek!
