    Funniest, Weirdest, Most Unusual Baby Names

    My initials were almost BMW but my dad didn't want me named after a car. Instead, I'm BTW. To add my own unusual names, my aunt told me years ago how some people named their daughters Ima Hooker and Ura Hooker. Supposedly their last nsme was Hooker so... Went to middle school with sisters named Jellybean and Lollipop.

    Iphone or Samsung Galaxy??

    I had an iphone 4 before I switched to my galaxy note 2. I started hating my iphone and at one point, I entertained the thought of not even having a phone. I love my galaxy so much more because I can do so many more things. I love speaking my texts, well, speaking everything really lol. I love swype (dragging a trail to the letters instead of hitting them one by one). I love being able to download my PowerPoints from school lectures and opening them in Adobe (it does it automatically) and adding notes, highlighting, underlining, etc. digitally instead of printing them out. I can access them offline so I can study anywhere. I love it. Never lose my study material. I'm getting high As in my SCIENCES! I LOVE THE BIG SCREEN! It completely dwarfs the iphones. They look like toys next to my phone. Soo many people tell me my phone is huge lol like I don't already know that. But you know what, it really doesn't seem that big anymore to me. It is perfectly sized. I'm a girl, too, so I keep it in my purse and not worry about it trying to fit in girl pockets. Front girl pockets are as deep as my thumb. I like how the screen won't dim if it detects my eye looking at it. It's not perfect in the dark, but the screen lights up my face so it can then still see my eyes. I don't regret my decision to leave the iphone even if it's more portable. My iphone fell out of my back pocket, down a cliff (ugh, just my luck), and obviously shattered. Spent $110 fixing it up (hmu if any of you want it! Seriously. It is actually in great condition, had a case on it most of the time except for when it fell down the cliff, of course, there's my good luck showing through again).

    Kindergarten Teacher or RN?

    I considered becoming a kindergarten/preschool teacher vs. nursing, too. I guess the reason was because my kindergarten teacher made such a positive impression on me (I still remember her, some classmates, and things we did (she was pregnant and every day she would measure her belly to show us how fast her little baby was growing; I, as a 6ish year old, loved that because I was so curious. Kids that age are curious about everything and I'm glad she embraced that)) that I wanted to do the same. Deep down, though, I knew teaching wasn't for me and that nursing was the only thing that would make me happy. Since around that young age, I've always been drawn to the medical field. I get excited about nursing. It's my niche. It's where my heart belongs. I'm not a nurse yet, but when I get licensed, I want to work in the labor and delivery unit. Babies are my thing lol. Nothing makes my heart melt more than babies. I'm thinking that when I have kids of my own, I (hopefully) won't be that paranoid mom that takes her babies to the pediatrician for everything lmao. I'll be able to remain nonchalant and know what to do for them as their personal nurse for when they hurt themselves, get sick, whatever. Nursing is such an invaluable skill to have. So, I suggest what everyone else has and just go where your heart leads because at the end of the day, are you going to be worried about your potential or your happiness? And you know, you're young yet, try one and if you find it isn't what you thought it would be or you're not content, try the other. You've got plenty of time.

    I am an RN now!!!!

    Congratulations! I can't wait to pass my NCLEX and feel how you're feeling! I just started nursing school so I've got a little ways to go.
  5. When I took anatomy, one of my lab partners was 25 and he's going into his clinicals in August. He wasn't the oldest person in the class, either. There are many people that are so much older than you just starting out. If it's what you want to do, don't think twice about it.
