Chances of thunderstorms: 100%



Today is just one of those days. I have a list about 10 pages long of things to do, and I could fill up an extra page of things that went wrong today.
These are the days that make me a stronger person. I understand that there is a purpose for days like today, and that helps me through it.

Back to my to do list...

Ole Miss

This past weekend I went to Mississippi to see my Fiance. The weekend went by so, so quickly. (Doesn't that always happen?)
From the moment I stepped into our house, I felt a huge weight lift off of my shoulders. This is home. I also got to see my little sister and some great friends of mine. SO MUCH FUN!

I love the people there, and I can not tell you enough how much I love southerners. I explained to my roomie today that surrounding yourself with southerners is like getting a continuous huge hug. I really can't wait to go back! My next trip is for the LSU game. SO pumped to see my tigers play live! I have to see them play in person at least once a year.

I still have a few months left here, though and I need to concentrate on doing well in school. No time to be bummed. This semester is already halfway over, and it flew by. Being a nursing student keeps you super busy. I hear the last semester is the craziest with so much to do and great experiences in the ER/ICU so I look forward to it.

My super-cool friend B happens to be an amazing graphic designer/artist, and is going to help me give my blog a facelift soon.

Keep checking back for my blog makeover!

FOUR days...



Bear Bryant once remarked that "Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world for a visiting team. It's like being inside a drum."



In 2001, ESPN sideline reporter Adrian Karsten said, "Death Valley in Baton Rouge is the loudest stadium I've ever been in."



In 2003, ESPN's Chris Fowler called LSU his favorite game day experience.



More recently, in 2007, ESPN named Tiger Stadium "the scariest place to play," saying that "Tiger Stadium is, by far, the loudest stadium in the country."



In 2009 Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee stated "Unfair is playing LSU on a Saturday night in Baton Rouge." on Fox news with Sean Hannity.



Also in 2009, ESPN writer Chris Low listed Tiger Stadium's Saturday night atmosphere as unsurpassed in the country, ranking it No. 1 out of the conference's 12 stadiums.



Tiger Stadium was the site of the legendary "Earthquake Game" against Auburn in 1988. When Tommy Hodson completed a game-winning touchdown pass, the crowd reaction registered as a legitimate earthquake on the seismograph on campus.





I'm SO ready for this game....



GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!

Honorary Rebelette

So rumor has it I am going to be in Oxford, MS for the homecoming football game. Totally true!
After seeing my fiance solely through skype for the past 2 months, I will get to see him again in person. I'm pretty pumped!
My dear friend Amanda, who is also the spirit coordinator (AKA- Cheer coach & dance coach) will be showing me the ropes. I hope my boys of purple and geauxld will forgive me.



Hotty Toddy!!

Wednesday is my last day in the PEDS unit! I hate to say it, but I'm pretty excited. I'll be posting some fun clinical pictures later this week.
Back to the books!
