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 …

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 …

I’m In Trouble

Orientation for my doctoral program started this morning. It was a loooooong day. (P.S. My body is now completely befuddled about when it is supposed to be awake. Coffee is going to be my best friend.) Good thing our orientation swag included a nice big mug.

We were celebrating our annual and much-needed family vacation and had an absolute blast eating too much, drinking too much and getting too much sun! My favorite part was sleeping whenever.I.wanted. It was glorious! I …

Interview Like a Pro

Tomorrow is my big grad school interview. I’m nervous as heck but also excited. And believe it or not, ready to be back in school (NERD ALERT). I even bought a new interview suit! I never wear suits (being a nurse = wearing pajamas to work). So in honor of this occasion, I thought I’d …

Just Can’t Get Enough

I got the call yesterday that I’ve been invited to interview for the oncology NP/DNP program that I applied for. The only one I applied for. That’s how bad I want this. Think of me on March 19…I need to knock this one out of the park! 🙂
