Update (how creative)

So, week one of classes is down and I am still alive. It actually isn't bad at all. I have to get used to being in student mode again, and also get my sleeping habits under control! Sometimes I revert back to my night shift schedule! So, still no word back from Peds. I had my last interview with them last Thursday and thought it went well. I got major bonus points for knowing how to use both Meditech and CPN. They were stoked that I know it, I however try to forget. :( NURR 101 is going well. Every member of my graduating class has to sign up for a group called the Idaho Student Nurse Association and then they choose two students to be representatives. Well, I am one of the two which means way more meetings and things for me, but it also means I get a chance to go to Orlando, FL next spring!

So here at CSI the first week of classes is called Welcome Week and they have all sorts of activities. Wednesday night my friend Johnny invited us to the movie in the quad. It was Star Trek which I actually hadn't seen yet and I totally liked it. Okay so good company and cute boys in the movie makes it so worth it! We also had roommate night on Tuesday and then Institute party on Friday. Thursday night we ordered pizza and had the craziest time just goofing around. My roommate Maddie is hilarious and she sometimes makes Fay look calm! Just kidding Fay! Well, things are going good here, just tons of homework! I'll try to keep this thing updated better. One more month and I start getting to do assessments on something other than my SIM!

Well, I can't get any of my pictures to load right now, so I'll try again tomorrow!

Pics of the House!

So, I couldn't get pictures to work the other night when I was updating my blog. After having many people request them I am trying again so we'll see! Here they are.....

I love my apartment. It has a front door with a doorbell and a back door just around the corner from my room that leads to the parking lot. Also, my room has a lock on the door for which I have the key! It's so awesome! Well, there is more to come as I buy my books and put up pictures of those and my lab kit! Peace out! (that one was for you Sadie!)

The Big Move!

So, I am officially in Twin Falls, Idaho now. I moved yesterday morning with a car full of all of my belongings and a few of Dana's. I drove straight to the hospital and had an interview there with their HR department. They told me that while I was very qualified for Peds or OB they only had openings on Medical floor. Sad news :( During the interview though the nurse manager from Peds called down and after hearing my qualifications she said she wanted to interview me later that day! Yay!!! In between interviews I signed my lease and got some lunch then moved on to my next interview. I think it went really well! Then I came home and started moving into my room. My roommates are great!

In with the new!

So for those of you who don't really know much about Twin Falls I thought I'd drop down some pictures.

This is Perrine Bridge. When you get off the freeway in Twin Falls you cross over this bridge to get into the city.

This is Shoshone Falls. Isn't it so pretty?!!! This is about 3-4 miles from my apartment complex!

So, I am almost done packing up all of my junk to take to school with me. I am down to a few pairs of scrubs, three outfits, and my bathroom stuff. Wow! So, here are a few pictures of my new complex. It's pretty nice.
