Young Author in the Making?

My sister sent me an email last night of an "email conversation" we had had about 9 months ago in regards to one of the tv shows we watch. I was making predictions for the next season. She forwarded the email to me while she was cleaning out her inbox and wouldn't you know it, I was pretty much right on in my predictions. I could have written the new season all by myself! :) So then I emailed her back and said "I'm a genius! I should be a writer." She replied with, "Yes, you should, and I can be your editor." When I asked what I should write about she said she would have to get together with the creative writing team and get back to me. Haha!

It's conversations like that one that let you slip away from your real world and dream of becoming a famous writer, or a movie star overnight, or who knows what else you dream of being. Wouldn't that be crazy if one day I actually did write a book or something? You could say, "I knew her way back when she started a blog about when she was in nursing school. She was really high strung then." Who knows, maybe one day I will write. I like to write, I just didn't like the whole grade thing that was attached in school. It's easier to just write what you're feeling and not have to worry about passing a class. Anyway, I digress....

I'm still knee deep in work, but I'm not feeling as stressed as I was last week or even the day before yesterday... or yesterday. It seems I finally catch up and then I get slammed with more work the next week. That just doesn't seem right....

I'm finally getting together with my community project partner and we are going to start our paper. We first need to finish our outline of our part to give to the entire group, but then we can start actually writing the paper. I want to atleast have it started before Spring Break. I have a feeling it won't really be a break at all. It's going to be my "Ultimate Catch Up" week without having any extra work added on.

Tonight is Fundue/Fondue night at church! Woohoo! I'm looking forward to a night that will actually be fun and not where I am planted in my computer chair doing my mounds of paperwork. Then tomorrow I have the baby shower and the Doctor's Dance. I was eating dinner with my parents last night and they said they were going out to eat with friends Saturday night. I begrudgingly told them I was going to the Doctor's Dance (against my will mind you). My mom got excited for a second. She said, "Do we need to get you a dress?" I started laughing... "It's not Prom!" Haha! My dad started to chuckle too. I said, "I am not buying a new anything to go to this dance. I'll wear something I already have." She asked what I was going to wear and I said, "Who knows. I'll decide a couple hours before I go." I'm not that worried about it, and contrary to some people's belief there are no "hot med students" there. The doctor's put it on for us nurses... they don't attend. Oh well... the last cute med student I saw wasn't so cute after he added 5 new meds to my patient's list that had to be given an hour apart. I was not quite so enamored with him after that....

Alright, well I should probably get back to work. I have a little over an hour before I need to leave and my hair is about 1/2 a mile wide at the moment.

I should probably fix that.... I'll probably be back tonight or tomorrow night to let you know about the festivities. Who knows... maybe I'll be back with news about my book I'm writing in my spare time... hahaha... laugh with me people.. it's funny....
Until.................................
