Quote of the Week


Knowing in your heart that you could never do anything but nursing.
Even when nursing school could kill you sometimes. - Anonymous

   This quote speaks in measures for me. I've tried looking into other careers but, I kept reverting back to nursing. Don't get me wrong, I love blogging and writing about my experiences. I believe it's my calling and I can feel it. If I wanted to get a career just for the money, I would've found something with a starting pay at $50 per hour or more.
    Nursing school is hard and sometimes I feel like giving up but, I know this will pay off at the end. Basically, you just have to talk yourself through the semesters.
Motto: I started nursing school and will finish nursing school flawlessly.

Home Decor

Lifestyle: Desk space decor
This time I did a little bit more shopping for my desk space! I wanted to add some more items to make it look a bit more alive. I do try to embrace the simplistic and minimalist side of me however, a few more decorative items won't hurt. The few things I bought were from Marshalls and Ross.
1. The round faded mirror was from Marshalls and only cost $7.99!
2. The artificial flower it was from Marshalls and was about $12.99
3. And the last piece I purchased was a picture frame from Ross and it was $6.99. For this piece, I did a DIY and printed out a bible verse of the font that I wanted.

I Passed

I passed my nursing exam! This was my third nursing exam in the course and we have about three more to go. After failing my first two exams, I told myself something needed to change. What I started doing is first pray before I started studying and ask God to help me understand and retain the material and pray before the exam. Then I would read the book, do most of the questions on a workbook/study guide, and then do practice questions. I still need to do some enhancement in order to get a higher grade which is to increase the amount of practice questions. On the test I would underline the key words, read the question a second time if I didn't understand it, and do process of elimination. If I was unsure about the answer I would look for the clue word "assessment" and then think about Maslow's Hierarchy of needs and the ABCs (Airway Breathing Circulation). What I've realized is that most questions are asking about priority, what would you do first? I hope this helped and I plan on creating a post or video on how I study for exams once I finish up my first semester.

I've decided to change a bit in my content and add something new. Therefore, from now on my blog will be about my journey to nursing, lifestyle, and self-care. I'll be posting about tips, experiences, and budget friendly items. Stay tune!

Clean Perfume

First I want to say I was not paid to do a review on this product.
I love this smell! I received this perfume as a sample from Birchbox February box. The name of this perfume is Clean and it is what it says it is. It smells clean, sweet, and pretty. I don't like smells that are overpowering however, this smell is just right. I plan on buying the bottle version of this sample and I can't wait. I like perfumes that make me feel good and it's eco-friendly.

Quote of the week

Live life to the fullest, and focus on the positives. -Matt Cameron

When life gets hard you begin to forget about the positives and think about the negatives. Situations will get hard sometimes. However, it's best if you remind yourself that it can not rain forever.
