Hey folks! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I’m so sorry about that, but here I am blogging away! The past two weeks have been hectic especially with school at full speed ahead. The weeks are really flying by which is scary because that’s just getting closer to graduation! Anyway, I’d like to share some of the shenanigans I’ve been up to for the past 2 weeks!

Michigan State University Graduate School Visit

Two Thursdays ago, I had the opportunity to go to Michigan State with fellow senior nursing students from Hope. There, we learned about different graduate programs they offer relating to nursing. I am particularly interesting in their Ph.D. program because I want to become a professor someday and I am really interested in research. Anyways, they answered a lot of my questions, and it was just great to know that they are interesting in me as a potential student candidate! I’m glad I went because my interest in MSU definitely grew!

Chicago Trip 2014

Last weekend, SAC hosted a Chicago bus trip, and it was AWESOME! I went with some of my closest friends, and we walked the city, shopped, and dined. The weather could not of been any more perfect. It was 65 degrees, sunny, and all was well. I didn’t buy anything which was a little upsetting, but I spent my money on food, so it was definitely worth it. We also got a great picture while we were there, so check those out in the slideshow below!


As you all know, Halloween was this Friday! This year, my costume was Cosmo, the fairy from Fairly Odd Parents. My friend Kaitlyn was Wanda, and my friend Molly was Timmy Turner. If there would have been a costume competition, we would of won, no questions. The craziest part was that I sprayed my hair with green hairspray, and it worked out well!

School and Work

Obviously, the rest of my time was spent in school, being busy with classes and assignments, and doing my jobs as SAC director and a TA. The amount of work I’ve had lately is out of this world, but hey, I signed up for it. In the end, it will be definitely worth it because I’ll be a nurse!! This coming week is also going to be pretty hectic, but I’m already making a countdown to Friday!

Thanks for reading, fans! Stay tuned for a few more blogposts this week. I have a lot to write about! In the meanwhile, check out my slideshow!
