Urban Summer

… Oh. It is summer isn’t it? I forget! Due to the accelerated nature of my nursing program, we aren’t technically offered a “summer vacation” on account of having a “summer” semester. It has been a while since I have made a post showing the more lighthearted diversions in my life as a student, largely because I’m at the tail end of my program. More notably however, I am currently in the fastest paced segment of the program. Given the … Continue reading

Silenced Dream

As I push onward within my accelerated nursing program, I find myself busy most of the time between the various didactic and clinical courses they require us to take each semester. Nevertheless, despite the speed of the program, the curriculum still does a good job in ensuring that we get a taste of all the different aspects/specialties of nursing. Having completed my second semester and thus reaching the halfway point of my program, I cannot help but reflect on some … Continue reading

The Difference in Our Lives

Last year, around this same time, I created a post reflecting on the different experiences I’ve had in making friendships over the years. Given the end of one year and the start of another, it seems that I tend to look back upon my past experiences in the process of anticipating the new year. This year, I once again found myself doing the same, but found my thoughts fixated more on the lives of some of the people I know, … Continue reading

Class Rep

I started writing this post pretty soon after nursing school began in August. I never found the time to finish, and now the very same semester is at an end with only three weeks remaining before the winter holiday. In a way, I am glad that I didn’t put this post out at the beginning of the semester, as so many things have happened since then. I can hardly believe the months flew by as quickly as they did — … Continue reading

Back to Pavilion

Last I wrote, I was wrapping up my adventures in the Dallas / Fort Worth area and was fixing to move to Houston for nursing school. Having grown up there, the Houston area is my home. At the end of July, I finally returned to reclaim my bedroom that otherwise sat empty outside of the holiday season. It had been roughly six years since the time I left for UTD and it felt a little strange to me that I … Continue reading

Creating My Espurr Cosplay

A couple months ago, I decided to cosplay for the first time by attending the Dallas A-Kon anime convention as the Pokémon Espurr. It was a decision made completely on impulse, for the idea came about at a point when I had an eternity of free time. See, I had unexpectedly found myself without schooling and without employment in the Fall of 2014. In an effort to retain my sanity and keep track of the passing days, I began creating … Continue reading

Dallas A-Kon 26: Did That Really Happen?

Three years ago, I attended A-Kon 23 with my friends as college was ending. It was my very first convention of any sort and I had a lot of fun in the atmosphere, especially considering that one of my online friends decided to fly in as well. We all had a lot of fun, and I was left feeling that it would be difficult to top such an experience. Indeed, when I later unexpectedly found myself with free time, I … Continue reading

Get a Life!

Now that I have been accepted into nursing school, my time is no longer spent trying to research the multitude of requirements that the NursingCAS application service demands of its prospective students. For some ludicrous reason, the programs starting in the Spring (which I thought I would have to apply to since there were only two programs in the Fall) require a separate, more meticulous application (including an entirely separate admissions test) than the ones in the Fall. With some … Continue reading

The Most Sacred, Forbidden Vault

Now that things have started to realign for my health education, I find myself internally cataloging some of the more defining experiences I had in medical school. Since nursing school (or even physician assistant school for that matter) is not as detailed as medical school, I will be fortunate enough to carry with me a bit of a deeper insight to the training I will receive. One such insight includes my time in Anatomy Lab, a course that is often … Continue reading

Recommissioned: Six Months Later

One way or another, I tend to keep myself busy these days. Even though I am currently not formally attending class as a full-time student, I still seem to average about one post a month. I hope that I can start posting more frequently at some point; a number of drafts are being actively worked on, but I can get a little particular about their finer details. At any rate, this post once again serves as an update about my … Continue reading
