So other things can fall together.
This week was harder than normal, a situation that I was in was going well and then all of a sudden it took a turn for the worst. But that very same day an Army Recruiter called me and we talked about my future with them. It was exciting and made me even more focused on the things that are important right now. School, getting into shape and squaring things away to take the NCLEX. I feel that I am more focused than ever, and can't wait to continue the recruiting process.
It also so happened to be Valentines day! My valentines may have been the best one I have had yet. I was able to spend all night with the people who are closest to me, we talked, laughed and just had a good time. Valentines day can be saddening for some people, but it could also show you how many blessings you have. Valentines day is a day to appreciate the love you have in life, and that can come from many different places!
In other news, it seems that I have 3 papers to write within the next 2-3 weeks. I absolutely can't stand writing papers, because well...writing is not my forte. Which makes me laugh because I will be getting my masters degree eventually and masters degrees are filled with paper writing -__-. But the whole point of telling you about my papers is that I have been procrastinating by spending valuable time on pinterest. Lol so I wanted to share a couple of pictures that I came across!
Have a good weekend peeps!

The new addition to the Ervin family. This is Mika, she is a 10 week old Doberman!!!!! I knew that my mom had been looking for a dog for a couple months now and she had talked about getting a Doberman because we had one when I was young and she was the best dog I had ever had, up until I got Ali of course ! So when my mom called and told me the news I was sooooooooo excited, I can't wait to go home this weekend and meet her (Her ears had just been pinned, so that is why they are taped!).
I had been having a bad day up until my mom called, but my mood immediately changed at just the thought of this playful little pup! How could you be in a bad mood after seeing how precious she is?? I will have a Doberman of my own one day! So I dedicate this blog to all the amazing dogs out there, they really do change peoples lives for the better! <3 And of course my one love Mr. Ali.
Also, this past weekend was my youngest nephews first birthday party. The party was so much fun and I enjoyed spending quality time with all of my family.
Oh and not that I am counting or anything......but 5 weeks till Spring Break!
We have all wondered about the lines on our hand at some point or another throughout our lives. And heard stories or folks tails about what the lines could possibly mean. Well when i was on the greatest website ever....Pinterest I came across this pin and found it extremely interesting.

In other news, crazy to think that it is already February 1rst!!!!!!! This semester is cruising right along. I completed my second capstone this week and got to anchor my first NG as well as successfully start my first IV, I am definitely starting to feel like a real nurse and all the years of hard work are starting to pay off.
Who do you guys think will win?!
Other than that I am busily trying to get all my homework done for this week so that I am able to enjoy this weekend, and watch the ever famous Superbowl!!!
Hope you all had a great week.
This week I started my capstone experience at Fayette Memorial hospital in Connersville, Indiana. If you don't know what capstone is, it is pretty much where you are going to a facility and working under a preceptor, which in my case is a nurse. It is almost like on the job training and it really helps develop skills and you become more independent and competent as a nurse. My preceptor works on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6:00am-6:00pm. I have never worked a 12 hour shift in my life, and my first day was just shadowing. So although i was excited about being there, 12 hours seemed like an extremely long time to watch someone do something! I did get to see and learn a lot of different things, and next week I get to advance to taking care of 1-2 patients on my own.
This experience has my eager to graduate and find a job and start my career! I can't wait to have a schedule like my preceptor has. Work three days and have the weekends off?! That sounds pretty amazing to me after 5 years of crazy schedules and school.
In other news, we made it through week 2!!!!! That means that we only have about 13 more weeks............ Lol but who is counting? Track season is also in full affect. Our first meet is on March 16th so that gives us a good two months to prepare. I am crossing my fingers that it warms up by then because right now it is ridiculously cold outside.
Bundle up peeps!
I want to start off by saying that if you did not watch this movie over break then you are in fact missing out!!!!!
I hope everyone had an amazing break, I am not going to lie, I have been ready to come back to school. I am only ready to start this semester because it is my last one...so that adds different motivation for me. Over break I was able to spend a lot of time relaxing, sleeping, visiting with family, eating, working and working out. The snow fall was crazy over break and hopefully all of you enjoyed it in some way!
My schedule this semester is going to be extremely hectic, and the first two weeks of nursing school are always the worst, so cross your fingers that I make it through :/!!
Here are some picture that sum up my break
Start the semester off with a bang, and it will be spring break in no time!!

Oh finals are complete, and life is now good until January 14th!
I hope all of you completed your semester with a bang and are ready to enjoy break! I can't wait to start baking and getting into the Christmas spirit. I will be starting my shopping this weekend, better late than never right? I am very excited to spend time with my family and have some time off work
To kick off the start of break my nursing class and I all went out and celebrated. We themed the celebration "Ugly Christmas sweater" party, it was funny to see all of the ugly sweaters and the whole class having fun! It is crazy to think that when I started this program 3 years ago that all of my classmates were strangers, now we all have become close and it is almost like a little nursing family!
I do also want to say, that my thoughts and prayers are with those involved in the Connecticut tragedy. And that I am very proud of our president showing such compassion and reminding people to cherish each an every day that they have.
Iowa was quite the experience. I told you a little bit about it in my earlier entries. But I want to take this time to thank those who made the trip to Iowa.
First and foremost: my family. My Grandma and Uncle made it to EVERY SINGLE GAME this year (and for the past 4 years). They are just as much of this team as the rest of us. They were there to lift me up when we lost and there to praise me when we won. They’re truly our team’s number one fans.
My CRAZY FAMILY decided to drive to 10 hour trek to Iowa, watch my last game EVER, then get back into the car and drive back home. Talk about dedication and love. They brought a dry erase board that they wrote on during the entire game. They asked me to prom, the felt “THE BREEZE” (Breezy), they joked, laughed, and screamed for me. It was a surprise and pleasure to have them there to experience that with me.
Mary Ann and John Morse: thank you the two of you. I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as the team did! It was an awesome experience!! I’m glad the two of you could make the journey with us. Here are some pictures they took!
Ahh we have finally made it to December! Although, it doesn't quite seem like December or Christmas time for that matter because there is no snow, and I have been so busy. As I have become older I don't really look at time by months or days, I look at time by when my next assignment is due or project etc..so quite frankly this whole semester has gone by and I don't feel like I have had time to celebrate anything adequately So I am glad that this semester is finally coming to an end and I will have plenty of free time to enjoy the holiday with my family, relax and prepare for my last semester of college.
Since I am a broke college student I have found that the easiest way to please everyone is to bake a bunch of goodies. For the past couple years I have been doing this and it has gone over very well. Pinterest is definitely helping this year with so many good and new ideas. It will be hard to not want to eat the goodies myself!! Lol Hopefully I will remember to take some pictures of all the festitivites
But before I can truly relax I have to get through another week and a half of school Two finals and a final check off are standing in my way. So I will be studying from now until December 17th!
That being said, study hard and finish up this semester strong!!!!!
