I feel like I haven't stepped in to blog land in quite some time. I mean, I haven't even thought about writing a post in at least a week and I'm barely making it around to reading even my most favorite blogs. But every day this week I've been attending an NCLEX (nursing licensure exam) test prep seminar type course. Eight hours a day, with my bum in a hard plastic chair with an attached desk, like the ones from high school. I don't know if my butt was a little more padded back then, or I've just gotten ornery in my old age, but sitting for long periods of time makes my fanny go numb and it makes me irritable.
So after eight hours of test review, the only thing I want to do is come home, pop open a bottle of wine and relax (see below).
I've also started re-reading the Harry Potter series from beginning to end. I'm on the fourth book, which just so happens to be my favorite of all. I haven't read it in over six years because I either loaned it to someone who never returned it or lost it, but my wonderful mother got me a boxed set two Christmases ago and I'm christening it now. It really is surprising to me how much I've forgotten (from only watching the movies) but it's really refreshing to be reliving all of Harry (and Ron and Hermione's) adventures again. (If you weren't aware, I'm a HUGE HP fan. I even hosted a link up.)
I am still on the fence about what I would like to persue, career-wise, after graduation. I just don't think my brain has accepted the fact that I'll actually be done with school. And that I'll get to have a real full time job again. And free time. And friends (outside of nursing school). Not to say I don't love my nursing school friends, but I love my other friends too and I have missed them dearly. But I guess I should decide soon, being that I'll be graduated in less than week's time, don't ya think?
You would think that all of this time off from blogging I would have come up with hundreds (or at least a few) of things to blog about, but nope. Not a single great idea has popped in to my head over the last few months. Or, if it has, I've either already blogged about it or forgotten it. Most likely the latter, being that all I've been thinking about lately are arterial blood gasses and if a glucose reading can be delegated to an licensed assistive personnel. Woof. Sorry for the nursing tangent.
Even with all the excitement coming up in the next week, I have been giving a lot of thought to blogging recently, and how excited I am to be able to return full swing. I'm looking forward to opening up my blog to sponsorships, and sponsoring some of my favorite bloggers again. I'm looking forward to commenting, and responding to comments that all you wonderful readers leave for me. I'm looking forward to more design clients. I'm looking forward to being able to sit down and really pour my heart into my blog with a glass of wine without worrying if I really have the time for it.
