in which I pass my first nursing school class …

Y'all. This semester is only halfway through, and I am beat. BUT. I completed and passed my first class. Health assessment was extreme and frustrating and nerve-wrecking and just ... so much. That being said, though, I learned way more in six weeks than I ever thought I could, and I know for sure that... Continue Reading →

in which I am not perfect …

So I'm competitive. This applies almost universally, even when it seems completely inappropriate, but I don't think I'm more competitive with anyone more than I am with myself. Being a "gifted" kid was, obviously, wrought with struggles of realizing that, sure, I was smart, but I'm not genius-level smart, no matter how much my parents... Continue Reading →

in which I quit my job …

Today is my last day at my current job. It's slightly bittersweet: the work is, for the most part, enjoyable, and since I work from home, I don't really have to deal with the coworkers that annoy the hell out of me just by opening their mouths. My relationship with my direct supervisor is a... Continue Reading →

on rotation …

And I'm now officially vaccinated ... well, once I hit two weeks after the final dose, I will be completely vaccinated against stupid Covid. So this is going to be Part 2 of the three-part Dance Dance Party Party "on rotation ..." series, I suppose. Also, just as a forewarning, this is a very weird... Continue Reading →

on rotation …

Last month - Jesus, it's already April - I did an "on rotation ..." for movie soundtracks and realized that I could 100% do an entire post on video game soundtracks. There is just something about being swept up by a rousing score as you're trying to beat a level, especially one where you're fighting... Continue Reading →

in which I go to the dentist …

I was raised by two medical professionals - and have been one since 2017 - so being around hospitals and doctors' offices is just sort of natural to me. To go visit either parent at work meant that I would have to go through a hospital, and even today, that weird, sterile-with-a-hint-of-bandaids smell is calming... Continue Reading →

in which I get treatment …

Somehow I got really lucky and inherited the gene for psoriasis, which is a super fun skin condition that is even more fun in the winter when my skin gets dry. It gets even better because I have two kinds of psoriasis: pustular and plaque, although the pustular likes to stay on my hands and... Continue Reading →
