So this may be a little late but recently the IUE red wolves had a track meet at Anderson University and it was literally a record breaking weekend! -->http://www.iueredwolves.com/article/2131.php
This is my very last track season and I have to say that it has been the best one yet. Not only do I have a great team, I have personally exceeded my record in the disc (which I never thought would happen) and put myself 28th in the NAIA top 100. I am so proud that I have had the opportunity to even compete at the college level. let alone be one of the top competitors in the nation. Next weekend we head to our last meet of the year, Conference. I am nervous and excited but also sad at the same time. I want to wish all my teammates and the future red wolves the best of luck in the future. Lets keep building and unstoppable program.
In other news I found the perfect dress for graduation!!!!!!!! I didn't go with my signature color which would have been black, but instead with a really pretty coral. I think after receiving my dress and putting it on, it has started to set in that graduation is really happening and we are a little over 20 days away. CRAZYYYYYY!
ohhh and I just wanted to show you guys how handsome Ali is
Have a good weekend peeps

Holaaaa peeps! I hope you are having a great week.
I have officially finished my captsone. This means that I completed 110 hours of clinical and now every Tuesday I can sleep in till whatever time I want Lol. And believe me I will be taking advantage of this free time.
With 35 days left.........comes a lot of responsibility. Who knew that when you are about to graduate it would actually be hard to find a job, house, car??? This is something I never thought about while I was in the middle of school, because I was only focused on making it to the end. But now that I am at the end there is so much more too it than just walking across the stage!
So as much as I should be focusing on the important things (Car,house,job) I am a littler more focused on what color and type of dress I want to wear to graduation ....
So many options to choose from so little time to decide, and I haven't even begun to think about shoes!!!
In other news, the track team is off to a great start and there have turned out to be many talented individuals on both the boys and the girls teams! I am excited for our track meet at Anderson this weekend
Have a good weekend all.

On Pinterest that is. Pinterest makes me feel like I could make anything. Recently I have been super obsessed with the home decor section. How amazing would it be to make my future home look exactly like these pictures or better??
We have a little under three weeks until spring break ahhhh . Graduation is getting closer and closer, which brings me to some information I am not sure most people know.If you are ordering a cap and gown you should order before March 27th, because if you order after that the gown price increased by $50.00. So just be aware of that. Here is the link to the page with all of the information regarding commencement ->>> http://www.iue.edu/commencement/
It is crazy to think that after spring break there is a little over 5 weeks left of this semester. It really is going by fast. I am hoping with spring break fast approaching that the weather will take a turn in the right direction and start to warm up! If there is one thing I dislike about being a track athlete it is most definitely the weather. No matter how many extra layers you wear sometimes it is just too cold to be outside Lol. Other than that I am very excited for our first track meet on March 16th at Wabash University. We as a team have all been working very hard this off season, and there are some fresh faces. I am excited to see how everyone does.
I need to get back to doing something productive
Have a good week peeps
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!

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!
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!
But i will be at the movie theater getting ready to watch the last part of Twilight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Read More
Lol a little bit of nursing humor ^^^^Read More
What a night of GREATNESS! Man, did we get spoiled. Senior night last night was definitely a night to remember. The Pal-Item took some great pictures to capture our senior moments (and others). Take a look! The crowd was absolutely AMAZING. They gym was packed and emotions were high.
My advice to you: LIVE IN THE MOMENT. These 4 years have been thee best 4 years of my life, hands down. I have become an educated, honored, respected, young woman. Last night, that was made evident by everyone who was a part of it. And even today, I continue to hear all the compliments. IU East and the Richmond community have been VERY good to me; and I am very appreciative.
I’m going to miss it here. And I am going to miss my Senior Sisters.No Comments
