Returning Home


I’ve been away from my home town for a long time. I recently got married, started classes at a new college, and moved hours away from where I was born. It’s odd that I’ve been gone a few months and that’s the longest I’ve ever been away; that’s either quiet funny or sad. Being away for a while has given me such a different perspective on my home town and the people in it. It’s funny that just a short period of time on you own can make you question so many things, and give you a whole new outlook.

I haven’t kept in touch very well, but then again people haven’t kept in touch with me very well either. I hope that no one takes that as a bad reflection on our friendship..but then again should I take that fact as a bad reflection? Either way, it’ll be nice to see old friends and family again.

Looking back on my old posts is kind of funny, I was so focused on getting into nursing school. Now that I am in a good program, my worries and attention is completely redirected. At least I marked one more thing off my check list, right?

Speaking of checklists…it’s crazy the list I have right now, and the sad thing is it’s not even a christmas shopping list..that at least would be more fun to complete. Nope, it’s immunizations, physicals, TB tests, scholarship applications, admission fees, book search & purchases, ect.

Ah well, it will be worth it in the end, so excited to start my clinical in a real hospital and work with patients.. even if it will be all the dirty work for the first few clinical semesters.

Still deciding if I would like to continue blogging, I suppose it’s a great way to procrastinate (I should be pulling out my flashcards right now) 😛
