Well, I did it. I have officially passed my second semester of nursing school. I only have two left. Two. Just two. In 12 little short months I will graduate with an actual degree that will get me an actual job where I will make actual money. I can not wait. To bide my time until graduation, I have spent many hours debating on where I should go after I graduate. Where to live?? Since I currently live in freaking Antarctica, I am leaning towards someplace where it doesn't snow and there are no such things as 'ice pellets'. Actually wording from today's weather forecast! So disturbing. Anywhos...
I am free of school for three weeks. I am going to read. I can not wait! But now I am faced with the decision of what books to read. Any suggestions? Currently I am thinking I should read some classics that I managed to avoid in high school. Right now I am reading the Scarlett Letter. What a drag that one is.
And since that book is about the most boringest thing ever, second to homework, I have found myself looking for other things to do...such as clean my room. HAHAHAHA!!!! Ok, really, though. Things I want to do over winter break....
1) Throw everything I own away. Seriously. Maybe one of these days after I type those words I will actually do it. But before I move again, my goal is to have two suitcases. Just two. No more junk. Two suitcases. I have not decided if I get two suitcases per season or just two suitcases total?
2) Find decent salad recipes. I mean, seriously peoples. There are salads out there that do not have 'chef' or 'caesar' in the title and I want to learn how to make them. I have had some of them in restaurants. But who can afford a $12 bowl of lettuce? So I need to figure out how to make fancy lettuce at my house. Anyone have some good recipes out there?
3) Organize my pictures. I have hundreds of pictures. One of my friends picked up a random photo album of mine the other day. It had about 6 pictures in it. Lame. It is time to take the many many boxes of pictures that I have and put them somewhere productive. Or at least into photo albums that will fit into my two suitcases.
4) And last but not least, find a book that isn't lame. Any suggestions? In doing that, I will have a perfectly good excuse not to do any of the above things on my list. And reading good books by the fire and pretending I don't live in hell frozen over...perfection.
