2021 goal?

Specializes in Psych, Addictions, SOL (Student of Life). Has 19 years experience.

What are your goals for 2021?

Crush nursing school and stay healthy! 🙂

Definitely doing well in nursing school. Figuring out an adequate study plan and learning how I learn best. I never studied much in school so I never found out the best way I learn.

Woah. Did the vaccine hurt? How do you feel?

No real side effect other than those I had with other vaccines. The Pharmacist in our facility advised to take Tylenol about 1 hour prior to getting the shot which I did. Shot itself was painless. Towards evening I ran a very slight temp and mild soreness in my arm. Next day my arm was pretty painful and I took a combination of Tylenol and ibuprophen. I was fully recovered by Day three.

As far as reading goes I usually read between 50 to 100 books a year. Would love to lose 15 to 20 lbs. I tried meditation with a Celtic practioner to guide me and fell asleep. I woul dreally like to learn to speak Gaelic but seems a bit ambitious right now.

Yeah ever since I was in 5th grade I always had my nose in a book. My mom once punished me by taking my books away. I think I would rather have had a spanking!

That's pretty funny. 

Can you read when it's noisy?

That's probably my biggest obstacle. I have to use earplugs

I can read any where and will drop into a book when I need to destress.
