976 Numbers

Hello Santa? Is that you?....Mrs. Claus comes on and says how santa is busy getting ready for Christmas and a recorded story starts.
I am sitting here at work today and something totally random popped into my head...does anyone remember the 976 numbers. Yes, there were numbers to call party lines and stuff like that, but does anyone remember the ones they had for the holiday's? I think it was like 50 cents to call around Christmas and you could hear a story about Santa and stuff like that. I used to beg and beg to call...I even think my folks gave in a few times.
Oh that was forever

On Saturday night after freezing my butt off at the U of M Game, Joe and I took his niece and nephew to see Bolt at the Imagine theater in 3-D. The original plan was to see High School Musical 3, but Noah (Joe's nephew) wasn't super stoked about it, so Emily did some research and saw that Bolt was playing. Hallelujah...I wasn't really into seeing High School Muscial 3 either.
The movie was totally cute, although predicatable, like most kids movies are. I really liked Mittens the cat and Rhino the hamster. Rhino...probably made the movie for me since he was so fat and cute. Disney did its part by throwing in some adult humor too. Cute movie. I would totally recommend it.
Did I awesome my boyfriend is? It was HIS birthday on Saturday and he took out his niece and nephew for dinner and a movie. I just love him...I think its so sweet that he so selfless sometimes.

PT or Nursing?

On Friday we had our "rehab" experience at the hospital. I totally loved it. However, I have come to realize that maybe the reason that I loved it and the reason that I loved my extended care experience was because of the physical/occupational therapy part. I don't know why that area facinates me so much. Did I make the wrong choice with nursing? Should I have chosen PT? While I am completely and totally interested in PT, I know that I couldn't do the math/physics involved. Its just not in my brain. I can't wait to be done with school...I am seriously considering working on a Rehab unit.

Have a blessed day...

Ok I am not racist by any means...but have you seriously ever heard a white person tell you to "have a blessed day"? I personally have never heard it. Do I look like I need to be blessed? What does "have a blessed day" mean anyway? Why do people feel the need to say it? I get from Cashier's and I got it from the payroll delivery guy today too, wtf?

Music Bumps

I love music.
I love my Ipod.
I love when I am driving in my car and a song comes on and I get what I like to call "music bumps". Music bumps are goosebumps that get when certain songs come on. Its like i know that it is going to be so great that I shiver and get goosebumps. It is then followed by more goosebumps and the chills for a few seconds. I know it sounds completely weird, but I absolutely love it when that happens, even though I am chilly. I can't say I have ever experienced the "music bumps" by just listening to the always comes from a CD or my Ipod. I can pretty much guaranty that it will always happen to Depeche Mode's song Blue Dress or Butterfly by Jason Mraz.

Perfect patients

So I had a great week at clinical this week. I seriously had the perfect patients. So polite, so understanding and so awesome. I loved that they knew what they should and shouldn't do. I loved that they not only knew what they should and shouldn't be doing that they actually followed through with it. They were candid, they were medicated and they rocked. I had a great week. I even got to do a few things that I hadn't done before which included an IM injection and taking out 2 IV's. Now I need to get my studying done and yay Care plan #1 out of the way, only one more to go!!!

Whoop Whoop

Obama made it! Obama in the house!

I am so excited that the rest of the country has decided to shake things up a bit. So what if he's black. Are we expecting a big ol' house party up on capitol hill with some crystal and strippers? Oh wait...that would be Kwame, poor buddy serving time in jail. I can't wait to see what happens.
I know the die hard McCain supporters were super concerned about taxes being raised, but honestly, I'll never in my lifetime make over $200,000 a year so it doesn't concern me. Now who is not to say that I won't find me a nice rich man to marry, then maybe I'll be concerned then. However, I am living in the now; a broke-ass college student, just waiting for my April graduation date and struggling to pass an exam. Bring on change I say, how can it possibly hurt.
