Hiking Bird Ridge.

Hike 12/52. Bird Ridge ain’t no joke. Especially in the winter. It is only 2.5 miles each way, but 3400 feet of elevation gain. Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 6.34.06 PM.png
4 dogs and 3 people made it damn near to the top.Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 6.34.34 PM.png

We went up, up, and up some more. Like a snowy stair stepper.Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 6.35.54 PM.png

The views seemed to just get better and better. Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 6.37.03 PM.png

We made it as close to the top as was safe and returned to the car.Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 6.37.12 PM.png

Walking was a little tricky for the following few days.

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.
