I have finally finished my first semester as a nursing student. Whew. I thought at one point I was going to dropout because of how awfully unorganized the entire teaching staff was. However, I stuck it through. And now I am very glad I did. I liked getting to know the other people, and it was SO nice to actually work with other students who were there because they wanted to learn! What a novel idea. Who would think anyone wanted to go to school to learn? Well, I was actually thinking I was crazy for it the last few years, so it's good to know I'm not the only crazy one out there.
Next semester Todd gets to start school again too. We are not sure exactly what course we want him to take, he wants to do physical therapy but is not dead set on it. My daddy suggested the other day that he become a nurse, a nurse anesthetist, or a physicians assistant or something. So we are playing around with some ideas and just trying to finish up the last few generals that need to be taken. Todd is very excited to go back to school, despite the fact that I think he is crazy.
Work has been absolutely terrible lately. I thought I was just being whiny, until I found out that EVERYONE feels the same way. We had a staff meeting where we were all able to voice our feelings because management was not present, and there were a lot of tears shed because people had been bottling up their frustrations for so dang long. So today I took the liberty of making a list of job descriptions that I think should be incorporated into our office. I showed it to my fellow employees, and they all loved it. Hopefully I will find a way to implement it, even though I'm not in power. It really needs to be done.
That's it for tonight folks!

This is for my dear sweet family. All of my sisters have started blogging, and I feel left out. Plus my mommy said I should. So here is a brief: I am very excited that school ends in a month. Todd is fun but I don't get to play with him enough. I want to find a new job. That's about all I got right now! I'll let you know about more stuff later!

SURPRISE! I remembered today that I once had a blog! I am sure that by now no one reads this anymore, but I thought that it might be fun to be able to say something anyway. Megan is living in Philadelphia right now and pretty much it's awesome. I am a Mary Kay consultant, and I am having a lot of fun with that. I think it is very enjoyable actually, even though at first a lot of people tried to tell me that it was a bad idea, it has actually been one of the funnest things i've ever done. And so was moving to Philly, people think I was crazy but it has been way awesome so I don't regret anything. I am going to be here for a few more months, I am taking one class at Delaware County Community College, and it is way boring. The teacher dumbs everything down to the point that it doesn't make sense anymore. Compared to my Anatomy class at UVSC last semester, this is like nothing. Who would of thought that physiology could be so boring? I mean, it should be interesting because I am learning about something that actually interests me, right? Well NO! The teacher puts me to sleep every time. And the most exciting thing... I'm going on a trip to Italy!!! I bought my ticket last night. Now I just have to work a ton so that I can earn that money back and not be poor. I'm going with my best friends family. That would be the one and only Todd Matthew Itri! (I even looked up Todd Itri on google once and couldn't find anything. I think that means that he really is one and only. I must be pretty lucky.) So everyone, there's the last year in a nutshell! See ya'll later!
