Hello, Internet beans! Hey, y’all!
So, as we know, AJA is in nursing school. This Friday, she had validations, which is where the instructors sign off on her demonstrating her skills (okay, yeah, but it’s more like being afraid someone is going to yell you’re responsible for the death of ten people by not correctly checking their pulse or dressing their wounds or ARGGHH! then the professors kindly being like “um, you need to work on this…” or “try doing this instead” and everything feels relatively manageable again. Ahem, anyway…)
This week, her validation was about vital signs (blood pressure, pulses, things like that), but the more entertaining one to help her practice for was her wound care section. Why was it more entertaining, you may wonder? (She didn’t actually injure me, thankfully.) ACG volunteered to be my victim!!! Of…Crayola markers. I gave her some wounds, C gave me grief, and she gave us both a lot of help in practicing! It was fun when it wasn’t extremely stressful. I had a ton of fun, and while it felt like practice it didn’t feel at all like a chore. And, of course it wasn’t as stressful for me because I didn’t have to remember the steps. All I had to do was sit there and pretend I’d been offered (and given ;P) pain meds for various injuries. I’m glad to be able to help AJA (and C, I guess) practice. She already does a great job, and I’m excited to see her grow into her confidence and potential. Thanks, queen bean. ❤
Keep your blood in and your elbows out! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o
Drive safely, dudes, so that C and I don’t have to use our practice and bandage you! O.O ❤
Hey y’all! So, we’re losing our touch, but it’s just ACG here.
We are realizing that every week is finals week when you’re a Junior in college (or in Nursing school of any class). The schoolwork on top of life stressors is meaning that we are either exhausted or trying to do something else when we would normally be making a post.
That being said, hopefully we will get it managed and be back soon. We just wanted to let y’all know that we didn’t fall off the face of the earth forever.
Keep your nose in your book and your eyes on the prize! ❤ 😉 😀 🙂 ;P O.o
P.S. Speaking of nursing school, AJA and C have another test tomorrow, and I know we’re all hoping that they do well on it and know they can do this!
Hey, people. Hey, y’all! So, we’re both here this week but not for too long because this was a very long week crammed into what felt like a very short time, so it has been really hectic and exhausting.Literally, I have not stopped moving since last Friday night, and ACG and C have been moving right alongside me. Life is a hectic, hectic thing at times, even though it can have wonderful moments. For example, getting to cook lunch together twice this week, which we hadn’t gotten to do in a while. It doesn’t make the hectic seem less crazy, but it is a nice chance to do something pretty simple that we enjoy in the middle of it all. Right, so here’s to hoping for a calmer next week for us and for you all. Or maybe, at least, the right kind of exciting, rather than the hectic kind.
Drive safely. ❤
Keep your foot on the gas and your trampoline on the roof. ;P 🙂 ❤ 😀 😉 O.o
Hey, y’all, it’s just ACG tonight. AJA sends her best, but we just couldn’t both be here tonight. AJA is dealing with some really sick family right now, so our thoughts are with her and her family as they get through this.
But hopefully we will both be here next week. Keep your antenna up and your horns down! 😉 😀 🙂 ;P ❤
Hey, y’all! Before we do anything else, we need to apologize for completely vanishing last week. There was gonna be an apology post, but um even that plan failed for Reasons. We’ll explain why in just a little bit.
Tonight, we wanted to kinda update y’all on what we’ve been up to. We don’t seem to have gotten any less busy than we were in summer, but it’s a completely different type of busy. It’s for real the craziest thing ever and we are all constantly exhausted either mentally, emotionally, physically, or all of the above. Literally…our entire friend group.
- As we talked about in the past few weeks, school started. This means that AJA has started nursing school, which is crazy and kind of intense, and the classes I’m taking are either core to my major or minor this semester (minus a really cool science class). As C put it earlier sometime in the last two weeks, it’s obvious we’re all at “junior level” basically, which means all work (that feels like play sometimes) but still ALL WORK.
- I, AJA, also had a birthday, which isn’t a HUGE deal (suuuure), except that I am now not only pretending to be an adult but am legally an adult in all ways. That being said, I shall now pretend to still be a child. She is definitely not a child, but I don’t think there’s a way to stop her from pretending to not be 😉
- Tonight marked a very important day in America, particularly the southeast where we live. It was college football’s opening day, and there was yelling at my house. A lot of yelling, great friends, and some pretty good food. It was A Time that I better get used to or C might breakup with me. @) Seriously, it was fun and I might have even been a little excited about it, even if I only understood what was going on like 25% of the time.
So, now that we’ve condensed this to a very short list….well, it feels like it might not be so much, but believe us when we say school this semester (and probably the following ones) is gonna kick our butts (I mean, it’s only taking up like 90% of our waking hours), so if we miss a post: assume we are either not dead but studying or died while studying, although we promise to try not to miss another one for a long while. That was completely accidental, but if we do, we more than likely didn’t die and more than likely are…studying or ACG is writing a paper. That’s true. I do have to write a lot of papers.
Anyway, good luck with school to those of you in school. Keep your noses in your books and your shoes in the air. 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o ❤
Drive safely, guys, preferably not while studying, but I feel you if you try to. ❤ 🙂
