I'm going to switch up the categories! Well, some of them. So here we go.....
-The HURST NCLEX Review Book, ATI NCLEX review books, basically anything that is going to prepare my frightened & scared self for the state boards test...... (which I will be taking probably next week!)
-"Sh*t My Dad Says". I will be doing a little book review on this on a later date!
Current Food items: (because I have some odd eating habits...this deserve a category)
-Whole wheat english-muffin with Smart-Balance butter, Splenda, & cinnamon sprinkled on. It's my pre-run fuel!
-Watermelon (it's been on sale like crazy. I feel like I've been eating so much of this that it will start growing out of my ears)
-Being flexible. I've been stretched and pushed around for 20 months in my nursing program, and finally graduated on August 20. Now, I'm continuing to "be flexible" on
-The shitty job market.
-The fact that I will probably be working nights.
-Many excitements in life right now! But probably on the top of my list right now is the fact that yesterday we signed the contract to build our house, but the lot is on contingency. So we will know by 5:00 pm tonight if we got it!!
Favorite Date Night of the Month
-There is an area in Tucson called "Fourth Ave". To be honest, it is quite heavily populated with hippies and street-dwellers. However, it is also populated with hidden treasures, awesome restraraunts, and great entertainers.
-If you ever come to Tucson, I highly recommend you check it out.
-My favorite date night was a Thursday evening, we headed to Fourth Avenue. We went to a bar called "Sky Bar" - which has telescopes out that view different planets and stars. They happened to have an awesome live jazz performance going on that night. Very fun.
Picture of the month:
Saturday night during our camping trip, Ryan decided at sunset to drop a line in the lake and do some fishing. So I joined him to
talk his poor ears off keep him company . :) I captured this with my phone. How peaceful and perfect is that??!! :)
Best Movie of the Month:
-Probably "Date Night". I thought it was really cute. I love Steve Carrell (sp?). And Tina Fey is
kind of definitely my role model.
Goal for September:
1) To pass NCLEX.
2) To land a job on the Telemetry floor of my hospital.
3) To some how negotiate a means of not having to work nights (pretty sure I won't attain this goal)
4) Have a good, solid month of marathon training (it starts picking up more now!)
Coming up for the month:
-Besides all the job and house stuff.......
-U of A football games begin. So we are looking forward to attending those games and doing some tail-gaiting! To be honest, I get more excited about the tail-gaiting than the actual games.
-Seeing Tosh.O on September 24....one of my new favorite comedians. If you get offended easily, do me a favor and don't check him out.
-Cooler temperatures! Woo hoo!!!!
Hope everyone is off to a great start to their week! Yay for September....this is one of my favorite months!
