Fall Bucket List

Fall Bucket List

Happy…Tuesday? I swear I’ll get a day down for zee blog if it’s going to be 1x/week right now. Life is BUSY but all really, really good things! I’m still trying to figure out what balance means for this season 😉 and still wanting to blog. I’ve been building this list for a while now and we are half way through October (what the what) and everything so I guess it’s appropriate to post now… Fall Bucket List 1. Go hiking….

Running tips for your casual runner.

Running tips for your casual runner.

Hey friends! How’s it going? If you can’t tell I’m on the blogger struggle BUS. But, I’m adapting. Learning. Staying busy! As I’ve mentioned before, I used to be a pretty avid runner. Nowadays, I love love love high intensity circuits and strength training. I went two solid years without running and have recently enjoyed sprinkling it back in! Especially now with school only leaving me about 20-30 minutes to break a sweat. I love that I can just add…

Why Family Nurse Practioner?

Why Family Nurse Practioner?

  Last Fall, I jumped, kind of randomly, at the opportunity to apply for graduate school. When I graduated with my bachelors degree, I was fairly certain I would want to go back to school for some sort of graduate nursing. My first two years as a nurse, the thoughts of being a CNS (Clinical Nurse Specialist) or CNL (Clinical Nurse Leader) came to mind. My first job as a nurse, I worked on a unit with a CNS and…

August lessons and September goals!

August lessons and September goals!

New month, new reflections and new goals! Just, ya know, 8 days into the month. But hey, never a bad time to reflect, no? AUGUST August goals: review My August goals, in summary, were to pray more, to reflect, sit down and write goals, get organized, blog research, and running.  1.Prayer: Still working on prayer. It’s easy to cry out to Jesus when you need something. I’m constantly working on being more intentional and quiet.  2.Blog research: I did do a lot of this! And I’m LOVING…

My Favorite Way to Strength Train + A Workout

My Favorite Way to Strength Train + A Workout

Trainer Tuesday? Instead of workout Wednesday. Whatever clever name fits the bill…I’ll go with it. I’m still playing around with a new blog schedule. (link). I think I’m getting the hang of school? It’s a tad weird to be in non-sciency courses (you can be in grad school and still say stuff like that, right?). And talking about health policy kind of makes my brain explode….but I’ll get there. Today I wanted to talk about my favorite way to strength train….

A Random Week of Workouts

A Random Week of Workouts

Hey everyone! How’s the week going? I feel like the month of September is SO all over the place for me. My work schedule is…weird due to 18 switches I made (not really) to accommodate for school. I started school and I’m trying to navigate that. I felt 92 years old trying to remember how to post something to a discussion board for blackboard. And it took me a solid 15 minutes to figure it out. Not. kidding. In my…

They get mercy, too…

They get mercy, too…

So I should preface this post with the fact that I wrote it maybe two months ago. I actually referenced these feelings in a post about learning to take constructive criticism (MY NEED for this). I wasn’t ready to hit post then, because I was writing this in the heat of the moment and I wanted to make sure I read it with a clear mind before I published. With that said, two months later, I’m dusting it off out…

Friday Faves and a Blog Update

Friday Faves and a Blog Update

Happy Friday, everyone! Sadly, this is my first of three. But after all those days off, I can’t complain! BLOG As far as the blog update, I’ve been going pretty steady with posting M/W/F. I’m not posting for a huge crowd, by any means ;). But I figured I should say on here that I will be adapting my new posting schedule with school starting on Monday, anywhere from 1-2 posts a week. Maybe 3 if I’m feelin’ it ;)….

A Charlottesville Weekend and a Fourth Year…

A Charlottesville Weekend and a Fourth Year…

Hello and happy Monday! How was your weekend? I’m on one of those realllllly long weekends that makes people think nurses never work. But I couldn’t even tell you the last time I’ve had 6 days off straight without taking vacation. And it just means next week will be a tad rough ;). I got off last Wednesday and go back this Wednesday. I used my long weekend to go to Charlottesville, Virginia to move my sister into college for…

November Project and the Weekend

November Project and the Weekend

Hello and happy Monday! This is one of those weeks where I feel like a semi-normal human being. I worked Friday, had your typical two day weekend off, and now work Monday-Wednsday. With the exception that most people don’t start their weekends on a Thursday. I’ll take it when it comes! The Weekend This weekend was a good mix of busy and relaxation. Probably more busy than anything but no complaints here 🙂 All good things. Friday I worked and…
