What is your passion? - page 2

Without a doubt, we are all great nurses, whether it be BSN, ADN or Diploma. My question for all of you is "What is your passion"? What non-nursing dream sets you apart from the nurse next door.... Read More

    My passion is marine mammals ... want to go and get my DVM and PhD and research their illnesses, develop treatment protocols, but would have to earn a living as a nurse... :chuckle

    I, too, have a niche for decorating and artsy things and love to cook and bake for events like Christmas and other occasions. I often get rave reviews for my Christmas dinners and decor. I also would love to be in business for myself whether it an even planner, caterer, the wedding business. These things I truly enjoy. I never had so much as when I did my own wedding...I even designed the cake bu didn't make it, not enough time. I would even like to design scrubs...but with my touches. Just getting one of the these dreams out of my mind and on the ground...

    Downhill ski racing!! Even though I'm 40 years old (plus), I still love pointing 'em downhill and skiing with reckless abandon!

    Gardening, roses in particular, but I have a big vegetable plot and herbs and flowers, etc. I love being in my yard and laying out stone paths, listening to the wind chimes, the birds, seeing life grow where nothing was before. The whole cycle of life, birth, growth, death, resurrection, is fascinating.

    Ok, you will all think I am a dork, but I have loved country line dancing for years now. I joined a dance team at my last college and it was so much fun! I'd love to do the dance team thing again and maybe even choreograph some of my own dances.

    Someday I'll have my own property in the country, with my own barn, my own horses that I'll show in hunter/jumper shows, and miles of trails for riding!

    Although I barely have time to eat or sleep right now (nursing school!) I'm still trying to find the time to ride regularly, or I'd go crazy. At least when I'm at the barn, the horses don't quiz me on med dosages, need care plans, or have call lights!

    I always wanted to be a professional singer....not songwriter, as I suck at that part, but to record songs, love songs expecialy.... that'd be cool! I'd love to get paid to do something so invigorating and relaxing at the same time. Maybe a christian artist? I love contemporary christian songs.

    Believe it or not my main passion is related to nursing - I would love to have my own practice as a CNM.

    Outside of nursing?
    Singing ain't too bad a hobby (I sing at church and we dabble as a group - never performed for real though)
    I also like to write, I actually have a "book" started.
    I crochet and quilt for fun - it isn't fun when it's a "have to" though.

    Almost forgot, I would like stool in Heather's shop too!! I'm a great taste-tester!!!
