that SO many women can’t understand that I’m not sitting here twiddling my fingers to get married or engaged. And a lot of the time, you’ll ask them why they want to get married…”Because I want my life to begin, I want to begin my life with this person” No. Your life is happening now. I do want to get married. Sometime. Not necessarily now, or even engaged right now. My life is happening RIGHT NOW. My life is happening with him RIGHT NOW. And that’s why I’m not in a rush. I don’t have this undying need eating me alive like apparently most women do.
The other thing that I hear is “why isn’t he proposing? He must be afraid of commitment”. Let us not go there. We have been together for almost 12 years. I think he’s committed, he’s not going anywhere. AND most marriages don’t even last that long. I will get married one day, and it’ll be super exciting when it does happen. But my life is super exciting regardless.
Long story short- I’m not the girl whos obsessed with getting married, or needs to get a manicure, or wants jewelry. I don’t NEED all of these things. What I NEED is love. And I have that and I honestly couldn’t ask for more.
Hi, i was scrolling through the LPN tag and i saw that you just passed the NCLEX...i'm seriously considering trying to become an LPN but i'm sooo nervous. Any advice?
Oh, gosh! I didn’t even see this until just now. Advice, yes. Make sure that you really want to do it and that you have enough time in your life to do it. It’s not easy at all. You really have to study. Basically, my life stopped for the amount of time that I was in school. Several people have children and did it and I have no idea how. While it’s actual hell going through it, you will make great friends, be in a fantastic, rewarding profession, making decent money and you can say that you survived it! Also- really make sure that you’re in it for the right reasons. You will find yourself cleaning poop off of the floor at times, while that’s not a highlight, it’s helping, and caring, and that’s what nursing is all about. The other little bit of advice if you do decide to go through it, make sure you get your “thing” that makes you happy or relieves stress. Mine was taking bubble baths or making myself a little mojito. haha Sorry for my rant! But I hope this helps you! Good luck! If you have any other questions, I’ll be sure to help ya out.
So many people are getting married around me and they’re having these huge expensive beautiful weddings. Which are fantastic, I think I’ve always dreamed of having that wedding when I was little… of course because I never saw anything otherwise. I’m super pumped for those weddings especially because so many of them are very close friends. And I know they will be beautiful. But I almost feel like… I want my wedding to be more intimate. Like… just me, him, whoever marries us, and then maybe a photographer to document. Preferably outside somewhere. I dont know, I just feel like it would be more real for us, it would feel more emotional that way to have it so personal. But that’s just kind of how our personalities are. Our families would be sad. But whatever..If they’re lucky, they’ll get a card with a photo on it. HA. littleguise.
I’ve become so self conscious about the little pooch I’ve developed on my stomach that I’ve started “eating healthier”. I’ve actually been doing really well. On Friday it will be a week. I’m grumpy though. So there’s that. Whatever though.
My birthday is in a month and I’m going to eat chocolate chip cookie dough like its nobody’s business. REALLY. I’m making that like.. a priority. I need to be able to eat something shamelessly. I don’t know that I’ve done that in a long time.
at a place called Diesel Filling Station. A ton of people, people dressed up as zombies, and GREG NICOTERO. That’s freaking right. The man himself was there sitting 3 tables away. He even brushed my arm as he walked by. It took everything in me not to shake his hand but I wanted to give him his privacy. Or I couldn’t move. One of the two.
