Not too much new, watching Lifetime Original Movies.

I've been doing homework and studying and watching Lifetime Original Movies for a few hours now! There isn't a lot to update on! I found out on Thursday that I have astigmatism and nearsightedness, so glasses for me! I picked out a cute pair (I have to wear all the time) and I should get them by Friday next week!

School is going well! It's been getting really hard but I'm pushing through. Pharmacology math is HARD and I hate math as it is so learning this stuff isn't really helping but we'll see.

There are some decisions I made about my health I am excited about! I have decided to cut out sugar completely as well as start taking a few new supplements my PCP recommended! I would never take anything my physician doesn't recommend but he swears by it and everything legitimate I have read online (psychology today, webmd, cnn, mayo clinic, etc) swears by it as well! I am excited!

I will update more in a day or two after my stupid pharmacology math tests and back office procedures lab tests. It's not easy but it's one step closer to my dream of being a CRNA!

Have a fantastic weekend! If anybody has any tips on surviving conversions (mg to mcg, mcg to g, kg to mg, etc etc) and algebra and fractions, please let me know in the comments. I need all the help I can get!!!

Oh man...

It has been so long since I've updated! I really have been super busy with school! My graduation date is July 3, 2013 and I'll be a Medical Assistant! I already got offered a job as a CMA (certified medical assistant) post-graduation working at an urgent care clinic in Salem! Emergency medicine sounds so awesome!

My ultimate career goal, though, is becoming a CRNA: Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist! It will take around 6-7 years to complete (pre-reqs, nursing, bachelor's degree, and lastly my Master's at OHSU's RNA program) and a lot of money and time, but I have the support of my family, friends, and RJ! He's my biggest fan and he encourages me daily to keep on moving forward. I'm doing so well in my classes and this is the toughest term! I'm almost done!!!

I can't say a lot is new is the same and I'm still getting Remicade infusions! Like I said, I'm just busy studying and going to classes! I just turned 26 yesterday and it was weird without my dad, but I know he was with me in spirit! RJ and I went to the coast on Sunday for my birthday and our 2 1/2 year anniversary! It was wonderful and I am so blessed to be with him. He got me Train tickets!! The concert isn't until August but that's okay! I'll be working and the time will fly!

I hope everybody is doing well! Please comment and let me know! I read the blogs I follow daily and I feel bad for not having updated in so long, but I"m here!!!! It's easier to email me and text than to comment on here!!!!

Well I have to go study lmao, and I PROMISE to try and update at least once a week! That's my goal! Love you all! Talk to you soon :D

Love, Melissa
