DONE!!!!!!!!!

It's a day of celebration around here. We should have fireworks, really.

After six long years, buckets of tears due to exhaustion & frustration, tired eyes from hours spent reading boring textbooks, cramped fingers from writing notes, numb bottom & sore back from sitting at the computer typing term papers, and achy feet from being on my feet for entire shifts....I am finished.

I walked out of the hospital this morning a free woman. No more student nursing. Tomorrow I work my first PAID nursing shift. Life is changing folks....


...and it's pretty exciting!

I couldn't have done it without my supportive husband & daughter
