“You Were Born to Fly”

Hey, y’all! It’s just ACG here tonight. AJA has had a really rough day, so while I hate that she doesn’t feel like being here tonight, I’m about to take advantage of this situation. #) As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, AJA is starting nursing school on Monday, along with C.

Anna,
The day has finally come. You’ve changed your plan a couple of times now, and while you think it has set you back, I think it’s helped you grow more than you ever would have “on track.” Even now, I know you are nervous and stressed about the upcoming challenges, but I know you can slay it. I know you will.
You’re smart, strong, and very capable of doing this. The classes will be a challenge; the teachers will cram a lot into your heads; you will probably want to scream, cry, and pull your own hair out a few times. Don’t worry. There are plenty who have been there before, remember the feeling, and have survived. You will, too.
Even when it’s hard, you aren’t alone. You’ve got friends to listen, distract, or just go get you a cup of tea because you just don’t feel like standing up. We love you, and we’re here for you. Let us help how we can (because we can’t learn your stuff, but we can help so that you can 😉 ).
This was a short letter, but I hope it was encouraging at least in some way. You’re going to slay this come Monday, and I can’t wait to see it!

Love,
ACG ❤

P.S. Most everything I said applies to C, too, so when he sees this, know that I think he can do it, too. 🙂

 

Keep your heads held high and your feet on the ground. ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o #)

“These are a few of my favorite things…”

Hey, y’all! Hi! So, earlier today we were with a group of women, and part of what we did was an ice breaker where we shared “A few of our favorite things” with the group. One thing we realized was that we didn’t know each other (or ourselves in some cases) as well as we should have.

Since we didn’t know these things about each other, we wanted to share them with y’all as a fun fact type thing.

  • Favorite color
    • Yellow, the best color in the world. Except, it’s so un-emo…
    • Red of all shades, but particularly bright fiery reds.
  • Favorite salty snack
    • Anything w/ Cheese
    • Barbecue chips
  • Favorite music group
    • Twenty-One Pilots
    • The original recording cast of Hamilton, the Broadway musical. I know they aren’t a musical group in the traditional sense, but come on…Hamilton.
  • Favorite sweet snack
    • Brownies
    • Cookie dough, just the dough…sugar cookie particularly
  • Favorite scent
    • C, no fudging on the blog… I’ll be real. He’s the best.
    • Metal (I’m weird. Most said vanilla or coffee. That just wasn’t me.)
  • Favorite place to eat out
    • Chick-fil-a
    • Lawler’s, which is a semi-local barbecue restaurant that has the best potatoes.
  • Favorite place to vacation
    • The East Coast (like Charleston, SC or Rhode Island)
    • Mountains (To be fair, I should have said Rhode Island, because that’s my real favorite, but I didn’t think about it in time. Besides, AJA had included it in her answer, so I thought she had it covered ;).)

This was a cool ice breaker type thing, and I look forward to being more involved with these women. It also was just really cool to actually think about all these things about ourselves. (Also, shout out to C: he literally got all but two right immediately and they were both food related and he knows I like home cooked stuff best, so). If only I had a boyfriend to make guess… 😥 (No, just kidding, I’m not shocked at all that C got them right, and it’s great that he did.)

Drive safely, y’all, and contemplate the important things in life while doing so, like, you know, your favorite salty snack. ❤
Keep your secrets close and your snacks closer. ;P 🙂 😀 😉 O.o ❤

School Bells a-Ringing

Hey, y’all! ‘Sup, guys?

 

So, it’s August now, and for students everywhere that brings one word to mind: school. For high school and below that’s a little sooner than we will start since we’re in college now, but the day is still approaching.

While we don’t necessarily have grade levels (at least as clearly defined as first, second, third, etc.) we still do have classes and semester breaks we go by. AJA, though, is starting even a different level of classes in the coming couple of weeks. Yeah, in two weeks C and I start nursing school. I have no idea what it’s going to be like, and to be honest I am terrified. But hey, I moved away from home soo…maybe nursing school won’t be too bad after all. They’re both going to be great, and we’ll all be supporting them through it. After it’s done, they’ll get to do what they love (cleaning up spilled guts and C will be watching women give birth if he has his way @)) help people and put to use all kinds of their medical knowledge to do so.

My classes aren’t anywhere near as intense or interesting as the nursing duo, but I’m still excited to get into the classes and maybe learn some stuff. An art class, some writing classes, and my second (and last) science class are in the mix. So, really this blog is just a way to practice her skills. 😉 JK. You’re gonna be great. Awww, thank you. ❤ I love being able to practice here. You practice on the blog, can I practice on you? BP only, of course. Of course ;P I think I already told you that you can, but sure, bring it on. It’s only fair after all. What about C? Do you volunteer as HIS victim? Ehhh, I don’t know that I trust him as much as you… But sure, I’m up for an adventure, I guess.

I start next Wednesday, and AJA gets to keep being nervous over this until the Monday after (maybe I’ll just take my random babblings to C ;P). It’s going to be crazy and hectic, but a ton of fun.

 

Keep your stethoscopes on your knees and your cupcakes on your wings. ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o

Drive safe, guys. ❤
