School Daze. Nursing school. What’s a hopper ?

This one time… in nursing school…

I swear we can’t make this stuff up. As a new nursing student the picture below sparked many stories. Did you know that when that shower arm extending over the toilet is positioned vertically, the water automatically shuts off? Well, it sure wasn’t common knowledge to a green-behind the ears new nursing student who had never stepped foot into a hospital prior to his clinical rotations.

I thought I’d chat about on Scrubs Beat…

Life should be lived in comfortable clothing

I’ve decided that I’m pretty darn lucky. I get to wear comfortable clothing in both my personal and professional lives. Now, don’t get me wrong, ‘comfortable clothing’ is definitely up for interpretation. But, lets be honest here, would the majority of the population honestly admit that wearing a suit or professional dress be the most comfortable clothing?

I’ve lived in the world of, “I can’t wait to get home to get into my ‘comfies”.

Well, now I ‘work’ in my comfies.. so to say. Heh heh.

I’m a Nurse Practitioner who works at a hospital, in the ICU. My professional garb is scrubs and maybe a lab coat.

I happen to see this pic on How befitting?


The majority of my time spent outside of my profession is spent within the walls of my CrossFit world. Yes, a gym. So I workout and/or I coach CrossFit (including weightlifting). So, yeah, gym clothing.

200 feet in the air…

How did I spend my afternoon? 200 feet in the air. Zipping across the rolling hills of the River Valley Gorge and Gauley River area.

At one point I was 200 feet in the air, traversed a zip line of a distance larger than 3000 feet at a speed of approximately 60mph.

Not a bad way to spend an afternoon. The best part? I got to share it with my family.

Great memories.
