First off, I am so thrilled of my followers!! FIVE! yayy! I think when I get to 20 (which may be in like ...5 years hahah) I'll do a good giveaway!

Also, I know I'm a HUGE slacker as of lately -- but I'm currently spending my last week here by my school, and we're doing an all-day-long-stab-your-eyes-out 8am-4pm NCLEX review class Monday through Thursday and it is KILLING ME. and my free time. Between that, coming home to pack things all up, and studying for my pharm/math entrance exam for the hospital on Friday, I am getting frazzled. Also, the girl teaching the class is like mid-20's, southern drawl but insanely too peppy for 8am's. She is way too loud and hyper and it's semi annoying. Except she's from Alabama, uses Roll Tide in sentences, and name drops Greg McElroy, Mark Ingram, and Nick Saban too often for me to ever hate her!! ROLL TIDE! :)

I set my NCLEX boards for May 31st, so please please please pray!!!

Also, I FINALLY got to resume reading for fun again!! I was giddy as a school girl!!! I honestly haven't read a single thing for fun since before I started nursing school, and that was August of 2009! My bf got me a kindle for graduation, and after I semi-pouted (without trying to hurt his feelings), slipped it back in its bag, thought to myself "doesnt he know me at all!?!?" (to which I instantly knew he DID, because he's heard me complain incessantly about wanting to read read read without the heavy weights of my textbooks) and put it under my bed for about a week (I am TOTALLY against electronic books!!! I want pages to flip, and a bookmark for my place, the smell of an old book, the weight and binding to feel!) I pulled it out and decided to give it a chance. A small, weak one, but a chance none the less. If Jesus can, I can. And while I'm not shouting by the rooftops by any means, it is tolerable til I can go to the library. It's a wierd concept because it's not touch screen (my cellphone and ipod both are) and it's different to navigate, but books are only 5 bucks for Kindle on Amazon, and I don't have new releases/one time reads all cluttered on the floor that I'd feel the need to keep. But we will see how it goes. I still hide it because I'm ashamed of using it and hurting real book's feelings. Not even kidding. I'm thinking of buying one of those book look alike covers for it, so it'll be incognito and I'll still look studious. You know.

Currently I'm reading The Hunger Games, and hating every minute of it. It better end good. I have been having panic attacks and crying spells from it. I am ready for it to be over!! It's one of those books where you can't put it down, but you don't want to keep reading either. Depending on the ending, I may finish reading the trilogy. Next up is The Help and Water For Elephants -- both with great reviews.
Also apparently the Hunger Games begins filming next week in Catawba county in NC!

Now I am off to buy a new bobble and get something to eat before I resume studying. Note to others -- never NEVER put hot water in your bobble -- mine shrunk and shriveled all up and is unusable now!! :(

This Friday I'll be listing out my favorite spots (and least favorite) of Wilmington -- my home for this past 5 years! Giving you all the details on what not to miss in this Port City I'll be leaving!!
