i never even updated you that i've finished my BSN.

  • Volunteer in Africa : CHECK
  • Move to Oregon : half CHECK
  • Obtain my DTN @ LSHTM: CHECK
  • Finish my BSN: CHECK
  • Two years working in an ER: CHECK
5 year goals ALL (mostly) complete. (If you remember... the move to Oregon ended in my car getting stolen along with everything I owned stuffed inside...tragedy...but not really)

Here I am...STILL in Kentucky. Holed up with a fellow RN in the most beautiful home I've ever lived. Dating a gorgeous mountain man from CO who happens to be an ER rezzie alongside me. Who knew I'd actually find a man who likes vegetables, bikes, and mountains as much as I do.

I'm thinking of writing a novel.

tomorrow's goals:

wake up and be productive!!

complete online quiz for school
see erica

...just one more episode of new girl...and one more glass of wine...


i lie my head against you 
and it feels as secure and strong as the earth
after each new conversation
it's as tho my whole soul has given birth
to something fresh and light
brighter than those colorado days you tell me about
clearer than oregon waters
more profound and moving than mountain peaks
you're the height my heart seeks

"i miss you more than the mountains," you say
and yet, to see me you have to wait less than a day
"you make me feel like i know where i'm going"
and i cry because it's true
i'm in love with you

You know what…
I owe my mom a lot of money
I’ve usually paid it off in a month..
And I’m inlove with this guy
And 3 days is enough to make me explode
All those pent up emotions
from the days my dad failed
to the days of now
sowhat, you feel the same
act like it
and im emptying out what I have
to meet you somewhere
 between there and now
I calm the fuck down
To meet you somethere
And know I want to.
