the semester is dying down and i am freaking out!
everything seems to be due, plus relief society stuff is just piling up, its great!
i have validation this week.
next week i have a huge evidence-based paper due.
the week after i have a personal health behavior change plan due.
then it will be thanksgiving break and i will finally have a break since....labor day weekend!
ya it has been a long semester, thank heavens that next semester there will be more breaks spread out throughout the semester because i know i will need it.
it is seriously amazing though how fast this semester has gone by it seemed like yesterday i was just starting nursing school and now look at where i am, i have given my first shot and i am soon going to be able to pass off sticking someone with an IV! i am so stoked for that.
last week i got in the mail the most amazing tickets! my ma signed all the families addresses up for the a concert and we won the lottery!
we won tickets for the
2010 Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert feat. David Archuleta!
ya i was screaming i was so excited for it! plus i hope to talk to david and remind him of that time he called me and left me a message to wish me happy birthday, then he will remember and we will fall madly in love and we will get married....haha! no i just thought it would be funny to bring it up to him!
this is just sue and i.
of course i am looking like a dream like always. and sue is smiling cause she never knows when i am going to make a face.
so enjoy the beauty of our faces:)
