def: expressing gratitude and relief
"an earnest and thankful prayer"

I am thankful. There is something everyday, hour, and minute I could be thankful for and never say something twice. As stressed and exhausted and how terrible I have felt over the past semester, I am extremely blessed. This life I have is amazing. I have uh-mazing friends and family. I have a great job despite my complaints from standing on my feet all day. I have a roof over my head at all times even if it isn't a dorm like I want. I have a reliable car even though the check engine light is on, it's rusting, and has a pretty rough idle. I love that I have debt because that means I have the ability to spend money/get an education without blinking my eyes. I truly have a great life, and I need to remember that even when I am having a terrible day or get a bad grade on a nursing exam because I am blessed. God is so good. He truly is, and I forget that sometimes. So, I wish everyone a great Thanksgiving, and lets stuff our faces with food while being thankful for what we have, who is around us, and that we are alive!

Two years.

Today is my two year blog anniversary. I think that I am just as crazy as when I first started this blog, but I am two years older, 23 pounds lighter, and 4 semesters closer to having my bachelor's degree in nursing.

I think that I am a similar person from two years ago, but I think I have developed and changed into a better person. I feel like I am doing what I want to do in life, but sometimes I am so stressed that all I want to do is be a five-year-old again that can throw tantrums.

I would be lying to you if I said that the past two years have been easy. Especially the last three months have been the most trying, difficult, stressful, fun, overwhelming, and exciting days of my life as becoming a nurse.

I have made new friends, gotten new family members, had great jobs, gotten a tattoo, made mistakes, made memories, and all-in-all I have had fun. I am excited to see in another year what I am like, and I will only be one semester away from graduating.

Here are my stats for the last two years...
8418 page views
186 posts

I am happy to see this blog grow even if I don't post the most interesting topics. So here is to another year completed in my journey through life. Thanks for putting up with me over the year, and hopefully my life will get more interesting...

Currently, vol 35.

This is going to be a short post because I have a med-surg exam tomorrow.

reading and reviewing my notes on fluid, electrolytes, and acid-base balance. It's going to be a long night.
writing this blog post and then headed to Starbucks to get some serious studying done.
thinking about all I have to do this week. Class, exam, work at Panera, simulation, more class, clinicals...
smelling nothing right now.
wishing for a good day.
wearing a sweatshirt and the comfiest sweats ever.
loving the extra hour of sleep that I got last night. It was definitely needed. I technically went to sleep at 9:30. lol
wanting to get ready and get to studying.
needing to begin studying for finals. Yes, I said study for finals. Nursing finals are nothing like anyone else's finals according to my sources. I also need to do very well on them to bring up my GPA.
feeling nervous for tomorrow's exam.

Have a great week!
