It’s been a while

6 10 2008

It’s been a while since I last updated. Ever since school and work started up I don’t think I have had much time for anything. I can’t really complain about it all cuz I’ve been enjoying every minute of it. Nursing school is going really well. I’ve finally gotten back into the swing of being in school full time. All the people in my class are great. We have already started bonding since we spend every waking moment together between lectures, labs, and studying. James is thrown somewhere in there. jk… He is actually really good at quizzing me before my tests and is a good comforter when I have my emotional breakdowns. I finally got my scrubs a few weeks ago and couldn’t help but show you a picture of them. My first set of classes are finishing up this month and then I will finally be able to start clinicals in the hospital working with old people. I’m sure I will have plenty to write about once I start up in there.


Work is great. I’m working at the coffee shop on campus, which gives me plenty of time to do homework. (It’s nothing like Wanda’s- always being so crowded) I never thought I would say this, but I think I am acquiring a taste for coffee. It could be cuz nursing is forcing it on me.


Besides that, James and I are still at work with the apartment. It feels like school and work started up for the both of us and we just haven’t had time for other things. We decided that we would redecorate from the silver wedding posters and streamers that Ronnie and Shannon used to decorate our walls. I don’t think it even phased us that it was still up on the walls. Well, we finally took it down today and replaced it with this picture from IKEA. (I love that place!)

The other part of our weekend was spent at a mall where James had the opportunity to perform at a community fair. He did such a great job of playing some Johnny Cash, Jack Johnson, CCR, Oasis and some worship songs. In fact, everyone liked him so much that he is going to be performing at the fall festival at the school. I’m so proud of him!

Ruth and James!
I have wanted to write you both a long letter for some time, expressing the sadness of missing your wedding. I am soo happy for you guys and wish I could have been there. I’ve been looking at all the pictures posted and it made me miss you both even more…but alas, I was in the throws of my last semester of nursing school! Also known as “the death rattle”. But I really am sorry I couldn’t be there. Ruth! I am sooo proud of you. Stick with it, it is one of the most challenging things ever, but you’ll grow and love it too. I graduated in August and take my NCLEX on Tuesday. I already have a job (if I pass my test) on the Neonatal ICU here in Vegas. Anyways, let me know if there is ANYTHING I can help you with as far as advise on how to get through it. Jen Alley (Chapman) starts nursing school in a few weeks too!
