Advocacy ~ The challenge of bridging the gap between patients, families, and the healthcare field was the heart of my desire to enter nursing... A few months back, I was caring for a patient that had been diagnosed with cancer and was in extreme pain. The plan was to operate... Continue reading

It was my first shift after my standard five days off.. I show up early, take a look over the board and go to get my shift reports on my patients. I recognize one of the names, which is typical for our unit - we call them "frequent flyers" -... Continue reading

One of the exciting things you get to do when online dating is write a headline statement. It's often supposed to be 150 characters or less... so for some of us that tend to be long winded (YES! I realize I'm one of those people, you love it, don't deny),... Continue reading

Oh my, my... This was a combination I didn't ever foresee! How narrow minded I was being. :) I had been ignoring my OKC profile for quite some time (Lets face it, it's pretty disappointing!), and I popped online to see what was happening in my inbox. Some 100ish emails... Continue reading

I have people who bust my figurative balls all the time about online dating..... ~ You're way too cute to online date! (But it's AMUSING! You KNOW you've enjoyed a plethora of stories from this ridiculousness!) ~ Only losers are on dating websites. (HOLD THE PHONE, so you're saying I'm... Continue reading

Apparently, I am from a different dating planet. I mean... Well, I suppose I should tell the story first. Yes, my loves, I realize it has been nearly a month since I have graced you with brilliant reading material - I do apologize... the stories of what I have been... Continue reading

You know, I credit myself for being an intelligent (and let us not forget, funny!) woman, but sometimes I have to ask myself - WTF were you thinking when you made *THAT* decision? Did you lose your grasp on reality? Did you get molested by Carebears and now see everything... Continue reading

It was a Friday night several months ago, and for some reason I was sitting at home, thumbing through the millions of options available to me on Match.com when I click on "Who's Viewed Me" - I see this guy, handsome, great smile, blue eyes, has all of his hair,... Continue reading

One of my girlfriends and I were talking one day about dating, relationships and the like... She said her dad once told her that she was "sitting on a land mine" and that she could use it to control the minds of men. The next date I went on... This... Continue reading

This guy and I met through POF and had been conversing for a ridiculous (seriously, you'd laugh if you knew how long) amount of time, and finally met. I'll leave out when this all happened, or the sappiness of romance from our first date, because... I mean, how interesting is... Continue reading

The date was September 6, 2009. (Yes, I'm just that creepy). ;) I was fresh to the OKC scene, doing a bit of prowling around, seeing a lot of things I didn't particularly like all that much, and a few of the upper echelon. Eventually, I give up, realizing I... Continue reading

For those of you who know me, you know I will blabber on to just about anyone about pretty much anything. In fact, I will probably tell you just about anything you want to know, and may even make you feel as though we have crossed that little line of... Continue reading

First dates/meetings from online are just awkward, period. You walk into wherever you're meeting with this deer in headlights look, trying desperately to find that person you've seen 1-5 pictures of. Naturally, 75% of the pics you've seen of said male, are taken from far away while he is participating... Continue reading

I've been called all sorts of negative names in my life... -- "Fat" - I'll never forget that one, first time I ever wore shorts in 5th grade (he's "friends" with me on facebook, maybe he'll see this post... I doubt he will remember. Oh the hurtful shit we say... Continue reading

I'm totally f'd up! Seriously. I sit here writing this entry immediately after returning from a Caribbean cruise. Yes, I know, you don't need to tell me - lame. What's even more lame, is that I completely and utterly behaved myself on said cruise (okay, okay, I'm not completely angelic,... Continue reading

I got an email this morning, naturally inquiring why I am up so early (though, as stated in my previous post, intelligence and initiative are important... so if one referred to my profession, they might be able to ascertain their own answer, but whatever!). The 1inch x 1inch photo makes... Continue reading

The birth of my online dating life began approximately 18 months ago. I know, some of you may be thinking... "GEEEEEEZ! You'd think with the abundance of options, it would be easier to find the infamous one!" Negative grasshoppers - it is in fact, more difficult, I'd say. It's like... Continue reading

*shrieks as loudly as humanly possible!* I know. I said the naughty acronym... NCLEX! Since you started nursing school, you’ve heard this term tossed around with a weary voice attached to it. Admittedly, this is the culmination of all your hard work in nursing school, but I’m here to tell... Continue reading

Assess yourself before you wreck yourself. :) Are you the type that likes exams to be first thing in the morning, get it over with, make it snappy, get the hell outta there? Well, then my friend, you are similar to me. I studied fast and hard for exams, would... Continue reading
