10:20 pm - christmas and life
It's weird being in Gainesville in December when all the students leave to be with their families. It's definitely quiet up here. So i put up the tree, lights, garland, ornaments and all. And Bubbles, the most loveliest cat, decided to knock everything off the tree in a matter of hours. Oh well, I've got time on my hands waiting up for Trey to get off work at midnight. I can't wait til I can pick my own schedule so I don't have to pick him up on nights I have to be at work by 7am the next day. Speaking of work, I love my new floor but I just have so much to learn; the patients are so critical. Anyway, just thought an update was needed since it's been so long. All I do is work to pay the bills, and rest on my days off from work. I love my boyfriend and finally feel settled down in my apartment with him and the dog and cat. Things could be better, but could also be worse, so I really have nothing to complain about. Life is going by so fast, but I am trying to get as much out of it as I can. :-)

2:15 pm - made it to uganda!
This country is so amazingly beautiful I wish everyone had the opportunity to see it. I arrived Friday and stayed in Mukono at the guesthouse for volunteers. My host picked me up yesterday and brought me and another volunteer to where we are staying in the village of Ntenjeru. The people here are the nicest people ever, tomorrow we go to the VOLSET office where we will figure out our schedules of all the things we are doing the rest of the time i'm here. So excited!

11:27 am - from London
Been sitting in the airport allll day. Still have another 4 hours before I board the plane. The weather here sucks, its so gloomy/cloudy/cold outside. I sat in a couch at a coffee shop and took a really long nap (like almost 2 hours) so I'm not sure how crazy the people there thought I was. Whatever, it's an airport. But I need to leave here ASAP as this place is making me super depressed sitting here all alone all day with nothing to do. It makes me miss my family and my friends and especially my boyfriend. If I miss everyone this much already I can't imagine how the next month is going to go. I am praying that once I get to Africa and get back on a routine and start interacting with people it will be a lot better. It's also weird that it is 4:30pm here and only 11:30am back home. When I get to Entebbe tomorrow I will be 6 hours ahead of everyone. Def gonna take a few days to get used to. Keep me in your prayers.

Thank God I have Tuesday off!
I miss my boyfriend.
I love my puppydog Rudy.
I'm glad my practicum is pass/fail because I still haven't typed up my goals or written a stupid log for last week.
Going to bed super early.

11:45 am - dreaming of a day
I need someone who can be there for me.
Or I need to be alone, but not somewhere in the middle
where I am putting so much on the line
and feeling like I'm getting nothing in return.
I'm coming up with my ultimatum.

Soccer game today. Will probably be the last one I make since I have clinicals now 7am-7pm every saturday and sunday.
Spring break was overall good, partied waay to hard and it didn't end so hot but it was still fun.
Rudy is back in Gainesville and I am never leaving him with my parents again.
And i got fired from one of my jobs last night because my schedule is not flexible enough (sorry i am a student and i have to go to class instead of work?). But I start back at the housing pools this week so it's all good.
6 more weeks of school and I could not be happier about it.

current mood: rejected

10:27 am - a relief
Just finished my last exam EVER as an undergrad student.
I feel like a million pounds have been lifted from my shoulders.
It is suuuch a great feeling.
Now I can finally focus on planning my Uganda trip, working, and actually spending time with other people besides myself and my books.

current mood: relieved

11:21 pm - kiss me through the phone
Ok so I went from being unemployed to having two jobs.
Working at Jimmy John's and lifeguarding out at Lake Wauburg.
My classes are completely over next week and then I just have practicum.
So crazy busy right now but it's totally worth it.
I passed the HESI which is like the biggest weight lifted off my shoulders ever.
I have THREE interviews on Monday for nursing jobs when I graduate.
I'm being a loser and going to bed this early on a Friday night.
And i'm actually genuinely happy with my life right now.

current mood: nerdy

1:37 pm - everything in threes...
I can remember the worst week of my life.
It was senior year of high school and three very bad things happened.

Last week was just as bad.
Now i officially have the two worst weeks of my life.

But after three bad things, three good should come.
Soo...i got rockband for my Wii and i'm SO stoked about playing!

I want my letters to come in the mail. <3

I NEED a job, like emergency need. Or I can kiss my trip to Uganda goodbye.
Why is NO ONE hiring!?

current mood: anxious

11:45 pm - my life right now
~I think I have an eye infection. It itches and is dry and it hurts.
~I'm working as a pediatric nurse for complex clinical and i never thought I would say this but I love it!
~Someone stole my wallet this afternoon and thank god I cancelled my card tonight because they had already used the card.
~My relationships with my family are pretty rough right now. And that sucks.
~It is so so cold here in Gainesville. 38 degrees.
~I wish someone special were here to cuddle me right now and it is sad that I can miss someone so much already.
~I'm broke and running out of places to apply for jobs. Why is no one hiring right now!?
~There are three things that I want very badly in my life right now. And nothing I can do to increase my chances of them working out. Except wait and see.
~I'm going camping with my family this weekend. I wish he could come...

current mood: tired

9:21 pm - UgAnDa
SO my parents are pretty much disowning me.
It makes me sad that they are so ignorant to think that everything over there is so terrible that i am going to die as soon as i step off the plane.
So sad.
But whatever...i'm going for a month in May. I've made my decision and I truly believe with all of my heart that what I am doing is good. And right. And at one of the best times in my life, right after I graduate, right before I get a job. When I can still see the world as an amazing place and I haven't been living for a paycheck each week.

They said that it is pure stupidity that I would go help another country when there is such a need for help here. Well guess what? I've helped so many people at the hospital from so many different backgrounds and I can honestly tell you that the majority of them are so unreceptive to what they could do, how much potential they have. They just want to complain about having to deal with surgery or a disability or not getting enough money once they get out. I will have plenty of that for the rest of my life.

I am young and I have hope still and I am going to Uganda from May 15th- June 15th to teach children HIV prevention, proper healthcare, and instill hope that even though they will never have parents due to losing them from AIDS or another illness, they can still become beautiful, smart, amazing people.

4:56 pm - election night
wow such a big night.
Looking forward to sitting around with the roomies and watching the election.

On a different note, my knees feel funny.
I swear I have old person joints.

AND i had one of the greatest weekends ever over Halloween.
I got to spend time with my aunt and uncle,
pass out candy with my mom and dad,
watch Georgia get crushed by the gators,
and meet a very sweet person.
I dressed up as the purple people eater
but I got called Spyro the dragon by about 5 people. :(

Anyways, back to studying for my psych quiz and
the gonna-be-here-sooner-than-later HESI exam.

current mood: busy

12:40 am - i don't remember...
I told my parents about Africa.
It's real.
I'm going.

In other news, I wish I was at Fl/Ga tomorrow.
But that's only a really conceited wish.
I am much happier hanging out with my family
that i haven't seen in over 6 years.

because I've been drinking all night.
I can say this-
I am lonely.
I've been single for almost 1.5 years.
Does that mean there is something wrong with me?
Or simply that I am too picky
and I know that once I graduate
I will be
all over the place.

Either way,
it makes me kind of sad.
I shouldn't be so dependent on others.
I can be happy alone.
I am somewhat happy right now.
it shouldnt matter what my status is.


current mood: sleepy

4:23 pm - leavin some love
Haven't been on here in awhile. It's not that I'm too busy, my schedule this fall is amazing; I almost have too much time on my hands. I probably haven't written anything just because my life actually hasn't been all that exciting I guess. I had a soccer game today, that's about the most interesting thing I can write. I need to clean the apartment today, and finish putting up my Halloween decorations, then probably spend the rest of the evening watching football. Speaking of, I am playing a fantasy league and I'm in 3rd place which is awesome considering this is my first time. I love football season, I love the fall, the weather today is absolutely gorgeous.

current mood: cheerful

10:23 pm - yay for football season
Almost done with the first week of school.
I can't believe it is my last year.
I'm doing my psych and community rotations, I think they will be fun. Can't be worse than OB and Peds...and...i think I'm happy.

current mood: tired

11:04 am - waay up in New York
My final vacation of the summer.
Spending 10 days in Downsville, NY.
No phone reception.
I love it.
It's been soo nice to just get away for awhile and not have anything to do.

Some of the great/crazy/sonotme things I've done:
Watch a tractor-pull competition.
Help my cousins strip and paint cars for the demolition derby.
Went to the fair and looked at the horses and cows.
Watched Batman again! (SUCH a great movie!!)
Finally found the time to finish the last Harry Potter book.
Went up to the lake and relaxed in a pontoon boat.
Been driving my uncle's Silverado and my cousin's F150-
makes me wish I had a truck.

The weather is so nice here. <3

current mood: peaceful

12:03 pm - i'll find mine
Call this a mask, call me strong;
Call me a mess, call me wrong.
'Cause sick hearts do fine
With wasting their time.

There's so much that I could see
But I'd rather shut my eyes...
