It's time for the monthly update. I feel sheepish saying this, for I know the summer goes WAY TOO FAST. But, summer isn't all that pleasant in AZ. 109, 105, 106, 109, hot hot hot. Plus, the closer to August 20 (graduation) - the happier I am.
But, I will continue to pray this summer goes slowly for all my loves up north! :)
-My sister Lisa burned a Glee Season 1 soundtrack for me, and I am definitely enjoying it. I've also loving the Neil Diamond - it frequented our camping trip :)
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:
Red licorice. I bought a bag for our camping trip, didn't finish the bag on the trip - so have been snacking on it. Yum. I love licorice. Black or red.
Anything but purple! I am so sick of wearing my ugly, purple, scrubs. Purple is my school color. I will never wear this color again after I graduate......
I did buy a orangy-pink colored sundress a few weeks ago. Sounds ugly - but with a nice tan...it's kind of striking! I'm kinda digging that color!
Camping. I fell absolutely in love with it last weekend. There is nothing more amazing than being out in the wilderness with no phones, no worries, no concerns! And it's so gorgeous! I am obsessed with waking up in a tent hearing the world. :)
Besides way too much coffee......
Diet Cherry 7-up. Yum. It claims to have Vitamin E?! :) So that means it's good for me!
Hmmm... Because of my current Neil Diamond kick - I will say "Forever in Bluejeans"
I'm going to be honest - I haven't seen a movie in a while! About 2 weeks ago, however - Ryan had a "poker night" on a Friday. Which meant I took a break from studying, poured myself a glass of wine, and watched a chick flick - "When Harry Met Sally". And that sure did brighten my day!
Current TV Shows:
The Office. I love that show. It brightens my day any day.
New running shoes. A new stethoscope (which I will be purchasing upon graduation in 53 days). Rain! A decrease in the temperatures.
-My sunburnt scalp to heal. I was a good girl on our trip - and applied sunscreen - but our day out on the boat I got a burnt scalp. Owwww.
-More days in the week!
Official grades haven't been posted - but - I am pretty sure (how things are looking) I got an A in Critical Care. I was shooting for better than a C. So yay!
I went a whole weekend without showering, and didn't complain ONCE. This is huge.
Current Bane of my Existence:
Percutaneous Coronary Interventions. My Capstone.
-Have a great experience in Practicum and learn as much possible.
-Write a bangin' Capstone presentation.
-Swim 1.5 miles. That may not be a lot to some - but I am NOT a "swimmer" by nature.
Cantelope and peaches. It's super cheap here this time of the year.
Oh, and pickled beets. Holy cow, have I been eating a lot of those lately! Yum. Ryan always knows when I've been snacking on them because my tongue and lips will be REALLY red.
-My education! The end is in site.
-The world that God has given us. I truely got up-close and personal with how amazing nature is this past weekend!
Current Slang or Saying:
I have been saying "Oh Lord" or "Oh Lordy" quite frequently lately.
Current (Fav) Outfit:
Swimming suit! The only way I can be outdoors and not miserable is in a pool!
It's the 4th of July weekend! Yay! Even though I am extremely bummed we won't be at the lakes with family - we have a fun weekend planned anyways! I'm also excited to start my practicum clinicals next Friday!
Well now that I'm getting "a handle" on my Capstone paper - I am light and happy! But, Lord, this morning - I was a MONSTER of a crab! :-(
