Starting a new blog wasn't on my list of things to do during my two weeks of vacation. In fact, this is what I had planned for my vacation:
Yes, I was going to sit around in way too much eyeliner, put on my high heels, place my finger in my mouth thoughtfully, and pretend to study for the NCLEX while I watched horror movie after horror movie.
But then my brother sent me his new blog and told me I had to make one too. So here I am.
Who am I? I'm a full time nursing student in Milwaukee.
This is a second degree for me. I can't say 'second career' since the first degree never actually led to a 'career' of any kind. Actually, it's a second, and a third degree, since almost all the RN requirements are finished, and this semester I'll be simultaneously finishing those and beginning the Master's requirements at the same time. It's been a very challenging and demanding program, but I think I've finally adjusted to it after a year. Or maybe I just succumbed and my old life was so long ago, I no longer remember it. Anyway, that's enough about school right now. I'm on vacation, bitches!
I live with my beloved and handsome SO, Papa Cash. So named because he's been supporting the two of us and our cats entirely on his own since I've been in this program. Someday soon (December 2009!) I'll have a full time job again and then I can be Mama Firefly-Cash.
I also live with the Pussycat Squad, Ash, Nissa, and Puff. More on them in other postings.
That's about it for now. Right now I'm going back to relaxing and watching something bad for me.
