So, this is what I know.
I’m 26 years old and will soon be 27. Which can I tell you how old that makes me feel? Since when did I become closer to 30 than 20? Time goes by so fast. My name is Connie, no not short for Constance, just the nickname. I’m also a nursing student. I already have a BA in Psychology, but just didn’t feel like that fit, so I went BACK to school to get my nursing degree. This was inspired by my beautiful mother pictured with me in red above. I love my mother. She is a long time nurse who is now suffering from Gastroparesis. Don’t know what it is? Go look it up:
Nursing school has been probably the hardest time in my life, as it leaves you like no time whatsoever to have a life. So this summer I am doing some catch up. I have one year left, and then will be a BSN! So next August through May I will be a little MIA, but will come back as often as I can. All I know, is that I will only try to be as amazing a nurse as my mom. She is the best woman I know, and the strongest.
I also know that I am in love, yes swoony love – with my boyfriend of almost three years. Yes, we met online through a dating website. And yes, once we met we knew we couldn’t be apart so he MOVED states for me. What a story huh? Yeah, he’s pretty awesome. He has made this school year a little more bearable, although he also is one of the MOST annoying people I have EVER met. And one more thing I know about this, I am TOTALLY robbing the cradle here. He is only 22! Ooops!
Another thing I know is that I am without a doubt an addict. I am addicted to Diet Pepsi, Couponing, Scrapbooking, Cooking and Baking, the Library, and of course, YA fiction. Why do I love YA fiction? I love the coming of age, learning who you are part of it. I love the vunerability and possibilities. I occasionally read non-ya also, so I’m not strictly into teen reads. I often feel like this makes me a loser, but here I am embracing my loserdom. I also enjoy YA fiction because I have a passion for writing it. After I get out of nursing school I would like to write my own story. I think that if I won the lottery I would still finish nursing school and would volunteer with it, but would become a full time writer. I would build myself a HUGE office to write in with a beautiful desk, comfy couches, and a heating blanket. I am always cold.
A few other things I know:
I love the colors orange and yellow.
If I could travel anywhere it would be to go to Greece.
I put ranch on pizza, french fries, and in spaghetti. I also put ketchup on green beans.
I’m pretty much a Vampire Diaries (the show) groupie. I don’t miss an episode.
My favorite books are: The Hunger Games Series, The Mortal Instrument Series, Thirteen Reasons Why, Starcrossed series, Article 5, and more.
And that’s it. Hopefully the things I know will help you learn a little about me.
