It is apparent that I have been busy with nursing school as I noticed today that I haven’t posted a blog since April!
School has been going great and I am loving it! I am now able to administer medications, including injections (with supervision of course), assist with dressings and tracheostomies and perform other exciting skills.
I thought I would take a break from homework and share with you some more Nursing Student humor.
When I am tired of studying and my brain can’t retain anymore information
My classmates and I before we enter the exam room
The way I feel when I see a good grade posted online
For the men in class :)
How I react when I’m thinking about how much I have to study
My reply when I’m asked during studying if I need anything
How I feel after a week of exams, clinical and assignments
How I walk once I take my shoes off after a 12 hour clinical
After I ace my consolidation
How I feel when the exam doesn’t reflect the content taught
My reaction when I check my notes after an exam
When someone posts on Facebook that the exam marks are up
Having a client on Lactulose
When we find out we are placed with our friends for our clinical placement
After many requests for another collection of Eye Candy & the fact that it was one of my most popular and shared blog posts last year, I present you with Part 2!
So, get ready to drool, hug your computer & swoon, again!
♥ ZAC EFRON ♥
His rise to fame was the movie Hairspray, which is where I first saw him. Since then I have enjoyed watching him charm and impress the ladies in hits like 17 Again and The Lucky One. His lastest flick The Paperboy, gives us all a glimpse of his mature side, with plenty of scenes in his underwear!
♥ RYAN REYNOLDS ♥
This Canadian heartthrob has been impressing us with his chiseled good looks since Two Guys & A Girl. With his ridiculously toned physique and charismatic appeal, he has made us laugh in hits like The Proposal & Just Friends. Plus who could forget his sexy yet disturbing role in The Amityville Horror?
♥ JAMES MARSDEN ♥
We imagined him as our Prince in Entangled and enjoyed watching him save the planet as Cyclops in X-Men. We felt bad for him in The Notebook and laughed at his hilarious role in Sex Drive. We all want to be his Coquette, the answer to his love’s duet!
♥ ADAM LEVINE ♥
He seduces us with his voice, singing for Maroon 5 and has produced one of the most addictive songs ever – Moves Like Jagger. With his sheer sexiness and alluring confidence, we can’t help but want to put the moves on him!
♥ TIMOTHY OLYPHANT ♥
It’s hard to believe this Father of three is 44 years old. We first spotted him in The First Wives Club. He has since risen to fame and starred in hits like Rock Star and Hitman and played the lead on the series Deadwood. He can save us from the Crazies anytime!
♥ Alex Pettyfer ♥
Last summer we were treated to a very private side of him in the blockbuster Magic Mike. Who knew he could move like that?! We have since enjoyed watching him in I Am Number Four and In Time. Though new to the movie scene, we look forward to seeing “more” of him!
♥ PRINCE HARRY ♥
He made us giggle when he was photographed naked playing strip poker. This cute and usually reserved Prince has a bit of a naughty side. Perhaps we should dub him Dirty Harry!
♥ JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ♥
In the 90’s, fans walls were plastered with posters of JT from ‘N Sync. Today he is bigger than ever. With hits like Cry Me a River, Rock Your Body & Suit & Tie we adore and thank him for bringing Sexy Back.
♥ BEN AFFLECK ♥
After being snubbed for Best Director, we cheered for him when he won Best Picture at this years Academy Awards. A Husband, Father, Actor, Director, Writer & Producer, we’d leave on a jet plane to see him any day ’cause we “don’t want to miss a thing.”
♥ PAUL WALKER ♥
We’ve seen this hunky bad boy in The Fast & The Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and the upcoming Fast & Furious 6 due in theaters this year. Perhaps we will race to the theaters if # 7 comes out. I can only imagine what that title will be.
♥ DAVID BECKHAM ♥
Ok, I know I included him in Part 1 but have you seen his new line of Bodywear for Men at H&M? I actually ran out and got these three types for Brent (insert chuckle). And have you seen his newest commercial for them? Hotter than Hot!!!
Well there you have it, the much anticipated Part 2. Subscribe to receive updates or follow my blog as I will be posting the next addition shortly, with an interesting twist, and be sure to vote on your favorite. I know who I’m voting for!
Nursing School sure has been keeping me busy! This week I am on Reading Week, so I am taking advantage of my free time visiting family & friends and getting all upcoming assignments and exam studying done. With all the pressures of school and life, it has been hard to relax and enjoy things.
I thought I would share a great video of a kid enjoying his time doing dishes. He saw the brighter side of his “chore” and made it fun – with Michael Jackson! This is how life should be, finding joy in the little things.
I am currently finishing up readings and homework for class tomorrow. Week 3 of school almost done! I just took a much needed break and glanced out my apartment window to see the city lights and winter sky.
It sure is dark.
Before I head back to homework, I thought I would share a favorite song of mine I just listened to: Holy Ghost! – It Gets Dark.
The video I am sharing with you is actually a fan-made video (the band hasn’t posted one yet) and is comprised of footage from an 80’s Halloween Masquerade. I have been to many parties but my costumes aren’t quite as exciting (or strange) as some of the costumes in the video. Take a look and be sure to comment below with thoughts.
My Nieces and Nephews excitement for the arrival of Santa Claus.
Getting together with Family & Friends. Cuddling up with Brent, watching a Holiday movie.
I LOVE this time of year!
With 2013 fast approaching I have been thinking about everything Brent & I have done this past year. From starting this blog in January to becoming a freelance writer for Daily Glow. Brents 30th Birthday, our trip to beautiful British Columbia. It sure was a fun one.
My biggest accomplishment this year was surprisingly being accepted into Nursing School.
I start in January and am thrilled. In preparation I have been getting vaccines and boosters and have taken a CPR course. I am eager to start and needless to say, 2013 will be a busy one!
I look forward to starting a new journey, meeting new friends, turning 30 in May and much more!
After 2.5 lovely years in our apartment, Brent and I are thinking of packing up and moving on out. This will be our second move together.
In 2009, our relationship blossomed and I moved into Brents place. It was a high-rise apartment, we lived near the top and it was our home for a year until one day our apartment bedroom flooded. We then had to endure 3 long, agonizing months sleeping on our living room floor, dealing with delayed renovations and mold! I ended up calling the City Health Inspector to complain and just after we moved, the owner was ordered to spend a FORTUNE renovating and attaching siding to the entire building! June 2010, we moved to our current apartment. The bathroom had just been renovated, it was spotless and we were excited.
So now we are going to move again. We are looking for a more “mature” home, away from neighbors on all sides and a place we can enjoy for many years together. We aren’t in a rush and wouldn’t mind spending one more Christmas Holiday here.
We haven’t decided whether to continue to rent for a while and save, or buy our first place, but we are venturing away from a building, which will be exciting because we can finally have our own backyard, hold parties and watch movies on surround as loud as we want.
This week we were contacted by a realtor to view a few rentals. We went to our first and second viewing and it went from OK to utterly horrendous. The first home was adorable, complete with a dishwasher, laundry room and gorgeous backyard but had a steep price and no dining room, so we moved on to the next viewing. The realtor assured us it was a great starter home that came partly furnished. The owner was wanting to sell but would rent to us for a great price, we knew it was too good to be true. When we arrived to the house, it was smaller than our apartment. I started laughing at how tiny it was and told Brent to go in first, because I knew it would be bad. Boy was I right! The carpets were dirty, the tub was dated back to the 40’s and there was a hot water tank smack in the middle of the tiny kitchen. After a few questions and false smiles, I said I had to get to work then told Brent to run!
Needless to say, we Bid Adieu to the realtor.
Down the road we will remember and laugh at all the shit-holes we looked at, but until then I think we will look ourselves! We might have a few more viewings this week, so be sure to follow my blog for updates on our Home Hunt. Comment below if you have any horror stories!
