Friday Fun Fact

200H

Millennials, or those born from 1982 through 2000, now make up more than a quarter of the U.S. population, exceeding Baby Boomers (1946-1964) for the first time.

-from U.S Census Bureau

This fun fact is an eye-opener in regards to population behavior and the paradigm shift in social habits, the market and of course just good ole’ fashion relationships. I mean you have noticed there are some changes goin’ on with how we as humans interact with each other haven’t you?

Things that make you go hmmm.

So… A recurrent thought …

mosquito-drawing1

Ever have an idea in your head that you just can’t let go of? Just won’t leave your brain. Keeps knocking on your subconscious.  Keeps buzzing around your skull like that mosquito in the bedroom.

I’m having one of those ideas. It’s an idea I’ve had for a while. An idea that still seems a bit crazy to me, but I just can’t let go of it.

Stay tuned folks. As if I don’t already have enough on my plate. I think I might be trying something new. (Is that vague enough for ya… don’t ya hate those type of posts?)

Not unless someone can tell me how to get rid of this damn mosquito in my head?

Who doesn’t like Chunk?

The movie “The Goonies” is still one of my all time favorites.

And now back to your regularly schedule day. Sorry, I needed the laugh.

-Sincerely your 80’s wild child…

Donuts and Running. Oh the irony?

National Doughnut Day :  June 5th

National Running Day : June 3rd

Anyone else find this a little entertaining?

Maybe they should switch dates? This way you can go ‘burn’ off those doughnuts you ate two days prior. Heh heh

My week Instagrammed

A quick recap of my past week. Life at work has started to normalize a bit, at least for the moment. Celebrated my beautiful wife’s birthday. Celebrated my Nephew’s High School graduation. Oh, and summer is officially jump-started…

 

 

Me and the birthday girl being wayy to serious. I knew there was a reason I married her.

Blog reheated: 5 cold, hard truths of being a nursing student

http://veritusgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/factfist.jpg

How badly do you really want it? Nursing school is not for the faint-hearted or weak-stomached. And, contrary to popular belief, nursing school is not a place for would-be medical school flunkies. It’s tough. It tests your intellect, but also challenges you emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Nursing students have to do more than just pass exams and tests. If you think you’re up for it, then you had better accept the following dirty little secrets:

1. You will have to prove your worth

You will prove it to your instructors, your fellow classmates and your family. You will have to prove yourself worthy to the staff nurses precepting you. You will have to prove yourself worthy to the physicians. You are being judged on a continuous, unrelenting cycle, every time you set foot in the classroom, every time you put on your uniform. Get used to it.

2. You will get crapped on

I thought maybe I’d start sharing some of my ‘liked’ photos I find throughout the week. Whether I’ll post this every Friday or not, only time (and my schedule) will tell. I have finally accepted that my blogging, my storytelling and my sharing is completely dictated by my life’s schedule. How many days I’m working my full-time CRNP job, how many days a week I’m coaching, and if there are any events coming up that  I need to attend. Summer season is upon us, so life will definitely get busy.

I’m going to experiment with some ideas for keeping my blog afloat. I thought maybe I’d pose questions to my readers. See what kind of responses I get. I’m chatting more on Twitter these days with the Nurseverse/Nursosphere/Nursetweeps. And of course I’m still pluggin’ away with coaching.

We have a weightlifting meet tomorrow, so wish my athlete luck!!!
