November 18th – Music.

I am not musically inclined. I also cannot imagine a world without music. Music is a big deal here in Seattle. There is a Jimi Hendrix statue outside of my school. I see the Pearl Jam guys pretty regularly. One day, I should make it to the EMP. My dad taught me the ukulele when I was in Hawai’i. Kanikapila on his lanai was a good time.

Here is a jam session in a pub in Ireland.

The beginning of nursing school.

Wow. Overwhelmed, distracted, nervous, excited, broke, these are all how I feel on a day to day basis.Day one we were told that there is so much material to learn (and teach) that we won’t be able to cover it all. We are constantly behind. The first couple of weeks are tough because we are learning theories and legalities. Then they dropped the bomb on us, we won’t be sticking people with needles. No IVs, no blood draws, nothing on real people! Apparently, wherever you work after school will teach you their way of doing these things. The best thing I got was a 45 page pamphlet on how not to stress during nursing school. It was pretty stressful.

Luckily, we got to go to the State Fair and see animals that remind me of Bob Marley.
