Another One for the Books

Gah, someday I will recapture the art of blogging whilst studying, but apparently it’s not today… Tuesday I submitted my final paper/project of the fall semester. Today I saw that my final grades were posted. Stick a fork in me. That’s a wrap. Another one bites the dust. … Can you tell I’m a bit …

Juggling

I have been fully immersed in my new role(s) for over a month now. I’m surely still in the honeymoon period, so take this with a grain of salt, but I am soooooo much happier in general. I even went back to my old hospital to visit a friend who had been admitted, and one …

Crowdsourcing: “The Change”

Hello friends! I have a favor to ask if any of y’all are interested… For my reproductive health seminar, one of our assignments is to interview a woman who is going through menopause. If you read this blog and would like to share some of your experiences (or if you know someone who might be …

Another Chapter

I mentioned the other day that I had some new opportunities in the works after resigning from my job. Now that they have come to fruition, I can share the exciting news! I have accepted two per diem positions, one in inpatient hospice and one on a hem/onc floor across town. Since both are PRN, …

Slowing Down

My summer semester turned out to be the hardest one yet (despite having the fewest number of classes). I won’t even begin to rehash the gory details, but let’s just say it was an exercise in learning to say “No”. Any activity or responsibility that turned out to be bullsh*t, I wouldn’t/couldn’t do. Which meant …

One for the Books

Semester #2 of my career as a  nurse practitioner student is a wrap! I turned in my clinical paperwork yesterday, which was my final step. I can’t decide which semester was more hellish – #1 or #2. To be sure, I worked my tail off for both of them. I have three weeks off before …

Home Stretch

I swear that I have every intention of updating this blog more than I do. But you know what they say about good intentions. So I’ll keep doing my best and ask those of you who have stuck around to have continued patience with me. Spring semester is winding to a close and I couldn’t be more …

The Neverending Semester

Is it really only mid-February? Looking back at my last post, I feel like it should be April already! All these snow days haven’t helped…the Southeast has basically been shut down for the better part of three weeks due to a couple of unexpected “blizzards” (and by blizzard, I mean 6 inches on the ground. …

Brain Overload

If you’ve read my blog lately, you’ve seen that my work life has been a … challenge of late. (I wanted to say clusterf*ck, but I was attempting diplomacy. That lasted for about a sentence 😉 ) Fortunately for me (and probably for you), school is another story. Despite ongoing insecurity about where exactly I …
