My flower beds are looking pretty sad. Today I finally got out there and started weeding the grass that has creeped its way into the beds, and as I did I kept finding bigger and bigger ant piles underneath the hedging rocks. Ugh!!! I thought I’d killed them all last year, but apparently they’re back. So I put some ant killer out… We shall see what happens. Anyways, as I’m lifting these rocks and pulling up the grass that has grown in between them I almost grabbed my worst nightmare, a snake!! eeeeeek! Sure, it was a baby snake and probably a harmless grass snake that was probably only 3 inches long, but it was a snake and I’m terrified! Now I know why they make gloves to garden with, and you better believe I put them on before finishing, and after killing the snake. I’m getting chill bumps just thinking about it because where there is one baby snake, there is probably more… and where there are more— there’s probably a big mama snake that I don’t want to meet! I mean come on, I live in the city! Snakes aren’t supposed to be here. I grew up in the country so I know they’re around there, but I guess I just didn’t expect to lift up a rock and see a snake… and I sure hope it’s the last one I see.
I’ve been a poor college girl for a long time now and as my mother would tell me: I have champagne taste in a beer glass. I want big, pretty, colorful and more than likely expensive flowers and such. Since I haven’t been able to afford that, I’ve had to look at ugly beds that are in need of a good green thumb, but I’m tired of looking at them so hopefully soon I can have the pretty flower beds I want…. Or just make it look nice enough for now and sell this place and move to a more rural area and start fresh… but that’s a whole different topic.
My hair color has changed from blonde to brown and in many different shades since the time I was 15.Well, I’m tired of the same old colors, so I”m thinking about going auburn for awhile. Although I’m a little afraid, I think I’ll go for it. I mean it’s just hair, right? I can always dye it back! I’m thinking about this color I found while searching Google images.
No, I didn’t pick it because it’s Ashlee Simpson, I just like the color! I found another of when Lindsay Lohan had darker auburn locks that I also like, but I think this just might be the color I go with… Everything I’ve read about going auburn says to do it gradually due to the shock of having red hair! But… I enjoy the shock of new hair-do’s. So, I’m pretty excited to be trying something new. Seems to be my life lately, new things. I like it. Change is good. So… out with the old, in with the new.
Today was the last day I’ll ever have to step foot inside Platt College. I’m done with Nursing School! Woo-hoo! I can’t even begin to explain how great it feels to be finished, there is a huge weight lifted off my shoulders! Now, time to prepare for the NCLEX… Any advice is appreciated :)
Celebration is in order for sure. Tonight I’ll have dinner/drinks with my Mom. Tomorrow, I should probably pay some attention to my messy house that my neat freak self has neglected for the past few weeks. Friday, off to Tulsa with Chantel and Sydney for the Kings of Leon concert!
So excited to start this new chapter of life…
Today is a beautiful day in Oklahoma. The sun is shining and it’s 78 degrees and getting warmer! Hopefully Spring is here to stay! Looks like a day of yard work for me. Cooper, my sweet little Doberdor (half lab half doberman) is loving playing outside in the yard too. Now if only I could figure out how to keep him from digging holes! I’ve tried just about everything. My flower beds are looking pretty ill, I’m not much of a creative green thumb. I’m going to go buy some flowers and see what happens! Before/After pics to come…
Starting a blog has been on my mind a lot lately, but until now I was a little skeptical. Sharing my feelings, experiences, and thoughts with anyone and their mother didn’t sound all that appealing to me, but here I am. I’ve always been very expressive of how I feel and writing in a journal just isn’t my cup of tea. I get tired of writing and just start doodling and drawing hearts and various things on my paper. Well, I am a Generation Y’er and I am always on the computer, so I finally decided what the heck, I’ll start a blog… so here I go.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” If you asked me this prior to the last few years I would have told you something different every time you asked me. I started college at 18. I changed my major every other week, it was anything from Biology to Fashion Marketing. For the most part, the medical field was always my biggest interest, although Nursing never really crossed my mind until about 4 years ago. When I started taking nursing classes, I fell in love with it. I started college in August 2004, and here it is seven years later and I’m graduating nursing school. Finally! It took me a long time to discover my passion, but I’m so happy I did. Life is a journey full of milestones and I feel I’ve just reached a big one! My life is changing, I’m growing up, I’m rediscovering myself, I’m learning who I am, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter of my life, so I’m ready to turn the page.
