finally updating.

i am not good at this. i thought i would be a lot better than i actually am. since i wait so long in between posts, i’ll just summarize what’s going on in my life.

not a whole lot is new. school is keeping me busy. classes & clinicals. learning a lot. i have a psychiatric/mental illness class, and the clinical part is definitely a learning experience. the whole thing is very unfamiliar. there are some crazy stories from the days. i can’t write specifically about them here because of confidentiality reasons, but i did get proposed to on thursday. some days are harder than others. mentally draining.  one of the hardest things is not seeing change within the short amount of time i spend with them. i’ve heard a few nurses say that some of them will never get better. it’s sad.

honestly, school is what consumes most of my life right now. i’m very grateful to have the people in my life that i do. i’ve made some good friends in nursing school, and there are some amazing women (from church) that pour into me & absolutely challenge my perspective & thoughts on life and situations. i am so grateful to have my brother and sister around daily. they keep me sane and fill my life with fun, laughs, excitement, and stability. there is also a group of 11th & 12th grade high school girls that i get to pour into most sunday nights. they encourage me & i love hearing their hearts and what the Lord is doing in their lives. it’s so rewarding to be able to talk to them about things that matter.

my mom came to visit last weekend. it was so fun to have her here. she’s amazing, and every time she leaves, i’m reminded of how lucky we are to have her. our dad didn’t get to make it, and we definitely missed him, but hopefully we’ll see him soon. it’s encouraging to hear what God is doing in and through them in their community in denver city. i’ve known how much they have to offer for a long time, and i love hearing how they’re being used.

i have a few goals for the rest of the semester: work out! try to go to our connect college group a few times. invest more time & energy into friendships. not so much procrastinating!
