Freaking Out… — February 24, 2017

Freaking Out…

Just a little bit though, and all for good reasons. Things have shockingly been looking up for me lately. I’m not trying to jinx it so maybe talking about it her as opposed to out loud nothing will go wrong? Sure, I’ll stick with that.

First things first, I got promoted! That’s right, your girl is going to be full time starting April 9th! I’ll be a 36 hour RN working 3 12s a week as opposed to 32 hours working 4 8s. It’ll be a big adjustment but making more money and having more time off will be great for me. I’ll be able to take time to relax and enjoy life a little bit more.

Going along with that I get to go from working every other weekend to every 3rd. Since I’ve worked on all 3 of the weekend options I had a preference which weekend I wanted to be on. Never in a million years did I think that I’d get put on my favorite weekend. Low and behold my boss came to me yesterday and told me that I would be on the weekend that I loved! It honestly couldn’t get better. I love working weekends with this crew and it’s going to make my transition that much better.

Another exciting topic is I’M GOING TO PUNTA CANA!!!!! This summer I’m leaving the country with one of my best friends Sarah and we’re going to be somewhere on a beach sipping something strong. I literally could not be more excited than I am about this trip. I’m planning on doing a packing post as well as a review of the place that we stay. 100 days until we’re on a plane, but who’s counting :).

My birthday is coming up. The big 25, quarter of a century. I haven’t done something big that I planned for my birthday in a long as I can remember. Well this year Sarah and I are planning a big bash. We’re going to go out on the town while drinking and dancing the night away. I’m so excited to have a night all about me and celebrating with some of my closest friends.

Last MAJOR freak out topic is Pat. If you remember me writing a post about him going completely AWOL around New Year’s you know where we last stood in January. Welllllllll, we started talking again. Now let me set the record straight that I didn’t initiate it, sort of. I was on Bumble on Valentine’s Day laughing at all the pathetic profiles and swiping left. Little did I know that Mr. Pat’s profile would pop up. I swiped right for the hell of it. About an hour later I get a text message jokingly saying to stop matching with him. The conversation went on from there and we haven’t stopped talking since. Things are definitely different (I might write a post about it) but he’s still an amazing man and friend. We hung out for the first time since we started talking again last night and we picked up right where we left off. I can tell he’s got a lot on his mind and that he’s stressed but I’m not trying to push the issue. I’m just happy I have him back, even if it’s for a little bit. Might not be the way I want but I’ll take anything at this point.

So there’s a little update on me. Tell me about your freak out moments that have come up recently.

Story Time: My 1st Car Accident — February 21, 2017

Story Time: My 1st Car Accident

I’m back with another story time! This one I didn’t think was ever going to happen, but then again I’m 24 and think I’m pretty invincible. I’m here to tell you about my very first car accident.

I’ve had my license for over 7 years now and this accident just happened last week. I can proudly say that it wasn’t my fault at all, but let me rewind back to the beginning.

I was in a really good mood that day. I had been canceled the first 8 hours of my 12 hour shift and I was only going in for a easy peasy 4 hours. What could I possible be mad about, right? The shift ended and I was on my way home. It was the blasting, singing like a fool. I got off the highway on the same exit I always take. I got onto the street that I needed and there was a city bus stopped at its usual stop waiting to pick people up. Since there were cars coming from the other direction I wasn’t able to go around the bus so I was sitting there patiently waiting for the bus to start going again. I look into my rearview mirror and I see this car flying up the street. I kind of had a feeling that this was going to be it but I figured the driver would have enough common sense to see my break lights and slow the eff down. If you guess that she didn’t, you’re right! She slammed into my rear end like it was nobody’s business. My car, being the super trooper that it is, didn’t have a lot of visible damage thank god.

The lady was so rude about everything. Questioning why I wanted her information, questioning why I wanted a police report. Get it together lady you just slammed into my car. We waited for the police and her filed the report. She sped off while I tried to collect myself. My brother and mom can and met me while I was waiting for the cop and my brother drove home with me. To say I was shaken up is an understatement. The car had always been somewhere where I felt safe which is weird since it’s probably one of the most dangerous places. Never the less I was able to drive and I wasn’t hurt besides a sore back.

I’m not afraid to drive or anything but I am definitely even more aware of the people driving around me. I drive a little slower, take my time. I don’t text and drive (not that I ever did). It made me more appreciative of everything a little bit more.

I’m happy to say that the woman’s insurance is going to cover all the damages to my car and we’re already up to $580 plus a rental car. It’s bad to say that I’m slightly excited hoping for more money in damages just because the woman was such a jerk to me. She got a ticket for following too closely even though she’s trying to say she hit black ice. Get what you deserve lady!

So there it is. My 1st car accident. Share with me your stories, or give me other story suggestions!

Writer’s Block — February 13, 2017

Writer’s Block

Hey everyone,

Sorry its been a hot minute. I have an extreme case of writer’s block. I don’t know what it is. I can’t think of anything of interest lately. Nothing exciting has happened in my life lately, work is the same old. I can’t think of any tips or tricks that I can share.

If anyone who reads my nonsense wants to suggest what they want me to write about, I’m all ears. Reach out to me and let me know what you want to see!
