    Was feeling a little down until I came here to see what you were up to, wonderful light hearted feelings now!!! Thanks for the laughs!!! I'm one of those over the hill nursing students and for now my pockets are pretty empty, clinicals start in a few weeks ! Back to the books for now, hope if I make it I get to work with someone like most of you, you give me hope without knowing it!! Thanks

    I have a jar on my bathroom counterthat tis full of alcohols wipes(many with phone orders on them),blunts for syringes,partial rolls of tape,etc. In our lounge at work we have a "dumping box" that we are supposed to use on our way out the door. I used to use it till I threw my Marlboro light in and had none on the way home!
