*no real nursing students were harmed in the process*

airports are stupid

For the love of god, I could take my toothpaste and deodorant with me if they were in a plastic bag, but because they are not, I can't?

really? is this what someone sat around thinking about to keep us safe?

This is what they came up with?

morons. and wasteful morons at that. I think the wasting of these products irritated me more than anything else.

but boy do i feel safe (...walking to the drug store to replace said items)

more school stuff..

ok.. i know.. i know.. i keep posting random facts that i learned in school.. but i figure if i have to learn this crap.. others should too...
so.. yesterday we learned that every extra pound of fat gained adds miles of blood vessels.. all these extra blood vessels means that the heart has to pump that much harder... so what do we learn from this? fat = bad.. who knew?

most people know that during a heart attack the left arm might hurt - but did you know that that this is the reason we wear our wedding rings on the left hand? apparently the romans figured that if your left arm hurt during a heart attack, then your left arm must be connected to your heart - hence the wedding ring on the arm that is connected to your heart... the things i learn in nursing school..

say goodbye to chara...

at least until christmas..
school started last week.. and we've had nothing but orientation.. and somehow i'm still behind.. i found out this week that i have like 10 papers due in the next couple weeks.. including papers on how i felt about writing papers.. so.. if in the next couple months you call me, and i don't call you back.. or you email me and i don't respond.. it's not because i don't love you.. it's simply because i'm drowning in busy work, and don't have time to come up for air..
