in which I watch horror movies (again) …

Yep, I'm doing it again this year. I had so much fun last October that a) I actually watched some horror movies in a non-Halloween-adjacent setting and b) I decided that it would 100% be worth doing a second time. Hell, it may become a yearly thing? Who knows? Plus, I'm needing a nice way... Continue Reading →

in which I say WELL HI …

Nursing school is my entire existence. I wake up thinking about normal levels of various vital signs and lab values, walk around doing clandestine health assessments on people I see at Target, ponder nursing diagnoses as I sit in traffic, go to sleep reciting nursing considerations of medications ... you get the idea. But somehow,... 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 …

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 →

in which I got vaccinated …

A bit of background about me and my immune system: I have a very ... overprotective immune system. My body has a scorched earth policy when it comes to antigens, so when I get, say, the common cold, it's basically like I have the plague. When I get the flu? Oh, I'm out for two...

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 →
