At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes all you need is one.
it has been such a good week; a good intermission in a month that has not been the easiest. i started the week off with a positive attitude and i think that’s all i’ve been really in need of. it’s been such a refreshing week that i’m really sad it’s over. highlights included:
- working well with my patients and nurses - grades - mission beach with the nursing kids with sushi in PB afterwards - catching up at starbucks with bernie and cassi and having plans for a birthday dinner and a getaway sometime in winter break - dinner with the family celebrating ate joyce passing the NCLEX - movies with bee and boyfriend - lunch and heaven sent with the co-workers and michelle who was visiting from arizona
i need more of my weeks to be like this. granted, i didn’t do hardly as much studying as i should have been doing. but, i don’t care. at least, not this week. i’ll get back on it tomorrow. tonight, i’m just going to enjoy the rest of my night.
(and maybe watch an episode or two of friends while i’m at it)

don’t ask me why i think this because i don’t have a definite answer for you. i’m usually the one posting on mondays about how i can’t wait till the week is over. but, this week, i can’t wait for it to begin.
i think it has to do with finally going out with some friends, some i haven’t seen in a while, and some i always i have fun with.
or it could be due to the fact that i had a mini epiphany today - i need to stop worrying. i stay up late every night worrying about one thing or another. but, guess what? i’m 19! i’m only fucking 19. i could screw up everything i have right now and, yes, it will seem like the end of the world at that particular moment, but it won’t always be. i guarantee that. so it’s ok to screw up.
through it all, just remember that the most important people in your life, well, they aren’t going anywhere. it’s going to be ok because “the people who mind don’t matter and the people that matter don’t mind.”
i have a cold that just won’t go away. and i have a midterm on monday that’s not going to go away either. i’ve barely studied. i’m exhausted. i’m retaining nothing. and i’m worried i might have to miss clinicals this week.
i just need a day to worry about nothing and just watch a couple movies and eat stuff that definitely is not recommended in any of my textbooks.
Today, while working (I’m a nurse) I had a patient come in who required an IV. Coincidentally, he had a tattoo of a woman sitting spread eagle, naked, on his arm. I had to put the IV needle directly into her vagina. FML
