For Me

I doubt anyone really even reads my blog anymore.  Since I have gone back to school my posts have been lacking.  I am currently in the middle of my 3rd semester of nursing school and it is eating my life up whole.  I have very little time to do anything other than study, do assignments, and study some more.

I am currently in my OB rotation... or as I like to call it "babies and vaginas."  I have only had a rotation in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) so far, so I really do not know how I feel about it, yet.  I really liked NICU, though... but, that's a given, because I find I just enjoy intensive care unit nursing in general.

I still do not know where I want to work when I become a nurse, but I can tell you with certainty that I want to work in a hospital.  Whether that ends up being on a medical surgical floor, an ICU, or the emergency room... I just want to work in the hospital.  My clinical experiences have all been so fulfilling, and I haven't regretted pursuing nursing for one minute.  I would be lying, though, if I said I loved nursing school... because I don't.  I hate it, but it is a means to an end, and it will get me to my dream career... my calling.  I do believe I was meant for nursing.

I decided to grow my pixie cut out a little over 2 months ago.  So, for visuals I will post my grow out process so far :)

This is when I decided to grow

This is 4 weeks later

This is another 4 weeks later

This is 5 weeks after that

So, we are on the grow.  I like my hair short, and it seems I go through two year cycles for cutting it off into a pixie.  As I am getting older, though, I don't want the typical short haircut for older women, ya know?  So, I think from here on out I want to keep it at least shoulder length and styled.  I'm glad I am chronicling the grow out process, though.  I like to see the progress.  My hair seems to grow at the expected 1/2 inch per month.  It doesn't grow fast or slow... just normal.  

Anyway.  enough with the boring stuff.  I hope everyone else is doing well.  I can't wait to be done with nursing school.  December 2016 cannot get here quick enough.  Just a little over 1 year and 2 1/2 semesters.
