Day 2: Reaching my Limit

I had a really rough night at work. Usually I manage my stress pretty well, but last night it was much harder than normal. All I could do is pour myself into work, and take "me" out of the equation. In nursing school you learn to leave your problems at the door, and put all... Continue Reading →


Day 1: A Day Late and Not Ashamed 

This November I'm challenging myself to write daily posts. There's something so therapeutic about writing and I've really missed it. It brings me joy and I need a little bit more of that in my life. Yesterday on Halloween I started my first of three 12 hr night shifts. If you know me you know... Continue Reading →

 Burned Out Introvert

I've always been an introvert, but I never embraced it. This year I've been on a journey of self-acceptance. I'm catering to the person that I am, instead of the person I thought I should be.  I've settled into my first career as a nurse on a busy med-surg floor. It's been a stressful journey....

Lately I've been noticing a trend among twenty-something's. Most of us reach a point where we have no idea what we're doing with our lives. It's such a scary place to be at.  As I neared my mid-twenties, I noticed a change in social interactions. Every time I met someone new, the conversation went something... Continue Reading →

Cruising to the Bahamas

My cruise destination was the beautiful  Nassau, Bahamas. Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas, so you get a great mixture of city life and paradise. If your goal is to shop, eat, and relax by a beach, then you can achieve it very close to the cruise port. If you love historic sites, you... Continue Reading →

My Carnival Victory Cruise Experience

After four wonderful days at Universal Studios Orlando, my husband and I set off on a 3 day family cruise to the Bahamas. We boarded the Carnival Victory ship at the Miami cruise port. It was my first time on a cruise ship since 2004, and my husbands very first cruise. We weren't really sure what to... Continue Reading →

Four Days at Universal Studios Orlando: The Hogwarts Express to Diagon Alley

If you love the Harry Potter franchise, Universal Studios Orlando will be the experience of a lifetime! You will see people decked out head to toe in hats and robes, with a wand in one hand and a butterbeer in the other. It's everything I imagined while reading the series, and more. The Wizarding World... Continue Reading →
