EM dog is getting hitched!!

This is a little tribute to one of my favorite cousins EMILY BALLARD (soon to be Evans). I am so excited for this gurrl. She is getting married tomorrow in the Los Angeles Temple and I am just about to hop on a flight to be there for all the festivities. I am so proud of Em for making the decision to get married in the temple. She is an awesome girl. I remember growing up with Em, sometimes I felt like she was the older one because she was so mature. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body and she has always had such a strong conscience. Em I am so happy for you!!!!! You have always been such a great friend/cousin to me and I really appreciate it!!! I love you girlfriend!!! xoxoxo

only 23 days left!

You heard it. Only 23 days left of nursing school...not that I'm counting or anything. And these 23 days are not going to be easy. For example here is a review of my past and upcoming week:
Friday: Preceptor at the hospital (kind of like an internship)- all day 0530am-8pm
Saturday: Work 2-10pm
Sunday: Church then Work 2-10 pm
Monday: Preceptor all day 0600am-7pm
Tuesday: Class all day
Wednesday: Clinical at the State Mental Hospital 8am-2pm, then Work 2pm-10pm
(that's going to be a long day)
Thursday: Class in the morning, tests in the afternoon
Friday: Preceptor all day

After reviewing all of this I began thinking about what COLLEGE used to be like....Playing in the library and staying till midnight just so we could be there when they blasted the music, not having to work so much, getting attacked by Maddog in the dorms, not having to worry about "really learning" the things in my classes because I knew I would never use them again (hah not the case with NURSING). Man, those were the days!
