Join me on a tour of my sometimes daily, mostly random, accidentally brilliant posts.

Accidental Brilliance

That’s right-a good night’s sleep and I feel like a t-Rex with grabby hands. Wednesday, you are about to be tackled!!

Thanks Ryan. I needed that. It’s been a rough few days.

On to test number two….
It’s 0300 (3 AM) and I’m up reviewing for today’s test: Patho/Pharm. I managed a 91 on my first Nursing Interventions test yesterday, but don’t think for one moment that I’m happy with that grade. Anything below a 94 pisses me off. Look, it’s good to set goals.  
Being up this early is actually nice. It’s quiet. I tried to study last night after I ran around at the grocery store, picked up my children, cleaned up my house, and cooked dinner, but by that point, my girls were excitable and I was in panic mode. Full on, freak out, screaming at my children mode to be exact. Balancing family and school is going to be harder than learning the actual material. Sigh….My 9 year old gets it. She understands me better than anyone else in the house. She knows this is temporary and that even though I’m studying, I’m still “here”. 
I’m out of coffee and I still have to learn the best time to draw a peak or trough level. Wish me luck!

Everyone Has a Story

Hello!! Check out my other blog everyonehasstories.tumblr.com where I post people’s personal stories or just repost things I find on tumblr.

Time for a change. Here’s hoping my “I’m-growing-out-my-hair-awkward-phase” isn’t nightmarish. 

Pssst: The first pic is my fav.

Last night I dreamt I painted my nails, only to wake in a panic about clinical. Nurses should not have long nails, painted nails, or fake nails as all have been found to harbor more bacteria than the average short, unpolished nail. 

Don’t cry for me Argentina because having 1/4 inch nails is about all I can grow anyway. I don’t paint my finger nails since I am the Cinderella of the house and I’ve yet to figure out how to prevent the polish from chipping. I’m thinking the answer is a maid. Or trained children. Either way, I’m not there yet.

Part of what keeps me going is knowing that after I become an RN and get a job, we can either move out of or add on to our existing house. That means pinning lots of ideas. Like this one. (Although I would put sliding doors to close up the bathroom….seriously.) 
I’m in LOVE with this chandelier….

Monday Funday

I woke up late, so no workout for me. I’m slowly turning into a circle. Circles are sexy, right?
3 classes and grocery shopping on the agenda today. “Maybe Bed, Bath, and Beyond if there’s time….”

Happy Monday!
