Freshman in college, nursing? - page 3

I'm 18, and I'm going to a community college in MS. I'm considering taking the 2 year program to be an RN. I've only read about nursing and the different things you have to do. I am not to sure about needles and catheters...but... Read More

    Hi Keely, How are you? How was your thanksgiving? I hope it was better than mine. I spent it in the hospital. I am home now and am taking a leave of absence from work until the beginning of Feb. I think I will apply to other places, so I can work normal hours and get my life straightened out. I'll have to update my resume, which I hate doing. I paid someone last time from the net and the experience was horrible, I'll never do that again!
    I used to paint ceramics when I was 14 yrs old. A lifetime ago it seems. And a lady at church used to bring her kiln in during our craft fair and we would make things. In fact, my daughter painted an apple when she was 6, now she's 12 and they found it last week going through the attic. It was neat to find it. It is a flat, not round piece, and she painted an apple on it and put a scripture verse on it using a mold and it was glazed. Hope you can use the pottery place close to home, that would be perfect.
    Hope you have a Merry and Blessed Christmas. Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season! and he loves you. Talk to you soon.

    Sorry I haven't written in a while. I didn't know that we started a new page so I didn't receive your new post. Anyway, how are you? Poor thing, in the hospital? Take care of yourself! :kiss It is good that you are taking some time off to re-group. Yes, I have a mini resume of all the cheezy high school jobs I've had. One good thing about re-doing it is you can look back on all the stuff you've accomplished (even if it was flipping burgers at McDonalds).
    I am so glad that finals are over! I tried as hard as I could in math but I will probably end up re-taking it. I think I passed with flying colors in biology though. I don't know for sure since grades haven't been posted yet. My final art critique went well. Everyone was in a mad frenzy to glaze and fire their pieces. I did mine early so I wouldn't be caught in the rush. I even got to fire one of the kilns myself! Some of my work turned out really cool and 2 more of my pieces are in the display case! Yay! The bad thing is that they either turned out really cool or really ugly. That's okay though because when I took ceramics in high school, we only had two glazes (blue and brown) so when I came to college and there were 17 glazes, I went kind of crazy with them. :chuckle I think that next semester I will not take such a big load. I am going to take the CNA class, writing, and the other math class I'm supposed to take. I am scheduled for chemistry but I think I will need to push that back until the summer because I heard that it's really hard. I am also going to wait to take another art class until the summer and just throw at home with my new wheel.
    Thanksgiving was okay, I mainly cleaned the house all morning because we were having 12 guests. My little sister and mom cooked in the kitchen ( yes, I live at home). My other sister doesn't live with us and when she left than it was a bad break up between my mom and her so she doesn't come visit us or anything so she didn't come for thanksgiving and I don't think she'll come for christmas. It was mainly hard for my mom but the house didn't seem that empty with 12 people.
    I went shopping over the weekend and got all these cute tops and things. I was trying to buy for other people but I just kept seeing all this cute stuff that was perfect for me! :chuckle I have to go out again this coming weekend. I don't know if I am going to give my ceramics as presents because alot of them didn't turn out like I anticipated so I dont know if they would be good to give. Some of them did turn out but they are still at school. If you want I will send you one. you can give me your address at my e-mail If you don't want to than I totally understand with all the internet weirdo's and everything.
    I gave blood yesterday for the christmas blood drive at the red cross. And I got to see the new Lord of the Ring movie too! I was really excited because it came out yesterday and I didn't think I was going to get tickets. I won't tell you about it but it was one of the best movie's I've ever seen! You should definitely see it.
    Oh, I almost got into a car accident on tuesday! It was snowing and the roads are REALLY slick and I made a turn too fast and my car spun out a little. Luckily it stopped and it didn't hit anything so thank goodness for that!
    Well, that's all I can think of that is new. Have a happy holiday season and I'll talk to you soon!
