Hello world,

My boyfriend Alex stopped by tonight, and he got me thinking about wanting to start a blog to talk about my experiences for the next two years as a nursing student. Both of us are very active, we go rock climbing and backpacking as well (this past summer we went on a 30 day, 3,000 mile vacation, we backpacked through the smokey mountains, we wake boarded and stayed on a house boat for a week in Tennessee, visited family in Ohio, partied like crazies in Indiana, then ended the trip with our church in St. Petersburg FL). So I thought it was a pretty good idea to share my life experiences, so friends and family can read about it and I can look back on the crazy things that have happened in my life. And this is why I am up at 12:15 AM starting a blog (considering I have to be up at 6 to leave for clinicals tomorrow, this is already becoming a bad idea...).

I'm already extremely overwhelmed in school with assignments and life. I'm debating on quitting my job and living off of a loan. I haven't been without a job since I was 14. The break would be nice...

I'm in clinicals all day on Thursday and Friday. Today was my first day and we had to do a windshield survey. We drove around the neighborhood and "scoped out" the community. A group of nursing school girls, in a car, driving around below the speed limit looking at surroundings... not a good idea. Needless to say, the people, were not very "appropriate". We saw a guy, who in mid-step, his pants fell down. He continued to not walk, but waddle the rest of the way without worrying about his pants. The community was run down but almost every single house had extremely nice cars... interesting...

6 hours to go until I am back at clinicals, and hopefully a nice long dream in between.
