I'm tired of looking like a zombie

  1. 15 Nursing school is a lot of work - don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    For the most part, you are reading on a daily basis, studying for what seems like an endless journey, you no longer have friends, and you no longer have a sex life.

    But, yes there's a but...

    It is a rewarding career:

    1. Abundant Employment Opportunities (compared to other professions)
    2. Expanding Job Opportunities
    3. Job Security
    4. High Salaries
    5. Very Satisfying
    6. People Are Appreciative

    So, when you wake up in the morning and you look like crap - just remind yourself that nursing is a rewarding career.

    It's not just nursing school that keeps you from ever sleeping! Being a nurse means you're always tired too! Hahaha.

    A friend of mine said I should try concealer after I complained about my hereditary under-eye rings. Does that stuff really work?

    Yes, it's some of the better stuff I've used. Only thing is that it settles in small lines a little more than a lighter concealer. But it does conceal!

    I would like to say Erase Paste is good, but Benefit Eye Bright is a true miracle worker. It normally comes in a pencil form, but when I go to Ulta I buy the combo pot of Eye Bright/Boi-i-ng. Even though the Boi-i-ng is the wrong shade for me, it's pretty cheap and worth it for the pot version of Eye Bright - AMAZING stuff.

    I can certainly symphathise with this cartoon, working full-time as an LPN, mommy to a set of teenagers and a 3 y/o and a 10 month old, and being a student, but I love illuminators and erase paste is excellent as well!!

    The uninterpreted (by BB) BB codes usually get carried over when you're copy/pasting from a Web page. You can simply edit them out, like this:

    They're not in angle brackets, so they're not actually HTML codes.

    Who does the illustratons? They're niether signed nor credited.

    That's why when you get paid oh so much you pamper yourself. Get a facial or a massage. or your hair colored and styles. Keep yourself up. dont forget to put yourself first which is the most important thing.. Sleep as well

    Lemon-aid by Benefit is a great dark shadow concealor. The yellow tint works well to cover purple/blue shadows on fair skin. I've accumulated quite the stock of headbands and ponytail holders to keep the mess contained. I've sacrificed cute hair to please the nursing school gods, and get an extra 20 minutes of sleep!

    Now wait a minute.......that's what I look like now, after 15 years of nursing! (Well, minus the five o'clock shadow.) When I get up in the morning, I look like hammered oop:......then I primp and fluff and put on some face, so by the time I get to work I look like regular oop:. What's an old nurse gonna do, eh?
