Life

28 Mar

Hey friends. I know it’s been a long while. This semester has been getting the best of me. So, I’ll try to catch you guys up on what’s been happening since I last blogged.

Basically, I didn’t get into the nursing program at MU… again. And basically it sucks. But things happen for a reason and now I’ve just reevaluating my life and my future. Upon advising, I found out that I have about 2 semesters left until I complete my undergraduate degree if I switch to health sciences, an idea that is VERY APPEALING. This week, which is spring break, I visited my cousin. I just kind of opened up to her and explained what was going on. Mainly I just feel stuck in this rut and I’m so completely burnt out on school. If we’re being accurate, I’ve been burnt out since I graduated from high school. She suggested that I finish my degree as soon as possible and get the hell out of the Midwest. She said that if I’m having a “mid-life crisis” already in my early twenties, I need a change in my life because well the 20’s are where you find out who you are. You’re supposed to be living life, learning from mistakes, and not continually stressed out about what your future is going to be, and obviously that is not me. And I really have to agree. Lately, I just have been feeling kind of stuck, with school, with life, etc. I truly believe that nursing is what I want to do, but just not right now. My cousin said that if I am really feeling this way, I should take a break, because if I force it, I’m going to start hating it.

If everything works out/goes according to plan, I’ll hope to finish my bachelor’s in a year (possibly 1.5 years) and I’ll probably be moving to Boston (somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and it’s a place totally different from the Midwest), find a job out there and stay out there for a year/2 years/ x years, and eventually, maybe, move back to KC, because honestly I really do love KC. And somewhere in there I’ll probably see if I can get into a nursing program. I just need a break from what I’ve known. Of course a lot can happen in that time, so I guess we’ll just have to see what happens.

That being said, I still applied to CMU’s nursing program. They had talked it up, saying that people like me often get into their program, and if I get in, I’m not entirely sure if I will take it. My parents are going to be disappointed probably, but I just don’t want to force anything, you know? GOD, WHY IS LIFE IS SO HARD?

Anyway, other than that, Hy-Vee is becoming my 2nd home, reading the Divergent series is how I procrastinate my time, I’m currently obsessing over Theo James and Bastille, my grades are doing alright, and I am still loathing school. My spring break was cut short because I decided to work. And I spent one day working at the marina over break while I was home. I’m really excited to go back there actually, especially since most everyone I know will be there. That being said, summer will be here in a short 1.5 months, and I’m so EXCITED.

Thanks for reading/listening to me rant on about my life. Maybe you’ll hear from me again before the semester ends, but I can’t guarantee anything!

Peace out, girl scouts.

SUBtember

12 Sep

One day until my interview. AHHHHHHHHHH. I have not been able to stop thinking about this for the past few days. NERVES, NERVES, NERVES. :/

Also 70 days until London. WHAT?!  But I’m getting so excited!!

Speaking of London, last night I had a dream that Kendyl and I were eating Subway sandwiches on the London Bridge. That was pretty interesting.

Coincidentally I had Subway for lunch today. It’s SUBtember, so all foot long subs are FIVE DOLLARS! Five! Five Dollar! Five Dollar FOOT LOOOOONGS! It’s okay to admit that you sang the theme song of Subway in your head. I did it too as I was typing it out.

I also got an A on my first test of the semester. So that was a nice way to start out the semester. And today I took the first test for my music appreciation class. In our last class, our professor printed out an outline/study guide for us then proceeded to tell us we could write whatever we wanted on that sheet and use it on the test. So I think it went pretty well. The professor for that class is sarcastic and a pretty funny guy. Which is probably why he reminds me an awful lot of Mr. Ralston. But maybe it’s because they both teach/taught music appreciation… Haha!

Also White Russians are really tasty, but highly caloric and are probably not good for aswans to consume a lot of.

Also, tonight/tomorrow is pay day. WHOOT.

Anyway, must get back to studying for the physiology test tomorrow.

Peace out, girl scouts.

Short Post, Yo.

5 Sep

Alright guys, I’m going to make this short and sweet because I have a lot of other stuff I need to be doing.

Labor Day weekend was pretty much the worst because I basically worked all weekend, which will be nice on my wallet. Me, Kendyl and Derek also went to Santa Cali Gon on Saturday for like 30 minutes because there were way too many people there… and it was also super hot. Unfortunately I did not get my chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich because apparently their booth moved?!! But we did get to see some clay flowers so that was nice.  

This week I turned in my nursing application. That’s 1/3 of the process. Next is the nursing interview, which is next Friday. AHHHHH!!! Yesterday I had a mock nursing interview and it went pretty well. The interviewer said that I did really well, so that gives me a little bit of a confidence boost, but I still need to practice practice practice! Also yesterday I bought tickets to 965’s Halloweenie Roast. I’m super excited to see The Naked and the Famous and The 1975. Derek is coming with and maybe Kendyl…??!! But other than that, nothing that exciting has been happening, except for me studying/doing homework/napping a lot. Next week I have three tests and of course the nursing interview and I will hopefully be orientated at Hy-Vee by then. Hopefully.

Also this week, I finally got a belated birthday card from my cousin in the mail. It was a One Direction card that folds out to be a mini One Direction poster. She’s the greatest.

Peace out, girl scouts.

PS. If Tristan doesn’t start blogging, I’m going to take Wednesdays, because Thursdays are usually a little bit busier for me compared to Wednesdays. 

Omelets, Work, and One Direction

29 Aug

Well there’s probably a list of about 15 things I should be doing right now, but I’m for sure not doing any of them. So that’s that.

This week has been pretty mediocre for the most part. I worked what seemed to be like a million hours this weekend. Call me crazy, yes, but my paycheck will be so awesome, hopefully. And this weekend I’m doing it all over again.

Yesterday I attempted to cook (something other than ramen, cookies or pancakes from the box) for myself for the first time ever in my life. I made tomato, green pepper, and cheese omelets. And they turned out pretty tasty! I had actually YouTubed videos on how to cook omelets before hand. HAHA. But I’m not going to lie, I did have a slight fear I was going to burn down our apartment complex. Luckily that did not happen.  I’m going to try to cook more this often this semester, but we’ll see how that actually turns out. Anyway here’s the end result of one of the omelets. Not the greatest looking omelet, but my tummy was happy!

T-minus 5 days until the most important day thus far in my life. I am so so so so so nervous and ridiculously stressed. I’ve revised my résumé pretty much every day this week, and I had the tutoring center look over it every day as well. After we turn in applications, there’s one week until interviews. Then the following week we will know if we made it in or not. It’s all happening so fast, and I just keep freaking out and stressing out. AHHHH!

Also the One Direction movie comes out tomorrow and I probably won’t get to see it without having to pay 9 dollars because of my work schedule. That’s depressing. I mean I love One Direction, but I’m not rich enough to love them for 9-13 dollars. You know what I mean? Does that sound bad?

And also SANTACALIGON! “Clay flowers, all flowers made of clay.” And chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. I can’t wait.

That’s all I got for this week.
Have a relaxing Labor Day weekend!

PS. If you haven’t seen the trailer for One Direction’s movie, shame on you.
