This one is kind of stream of consciousness-y…
It was so nice to sleep in today.
Let me be upfront: I am a night person. So all these early mornings requiring critical thinking before the sun is properly up just seems wrong to me. Before school started, it was nothing for me to stay up until 0200 or even 0400 reading a book or watching an entire season of something on Netflix, because I knew I could, with earplugs, sleep through the morning.

(Texas is the only other state with LVNs; other states issue licences for Practical Nurses, or LPNs.)* I earned my LVN at my local city college, and as I had also completed the general education requirements and all but one pre-requisite requirements for an associates degree, I earned that as well, graduating in the summer 2008.

Laughing hysterically, because I’ve been there…
I’m just going to leave this here…
I was going to try to list my favorites, but it’s like choosing a favorite child!
