until I marry the love of my life.
until I marry the love of my life.
This song is perfect :)
Just don’t ask me where we’re going, because I’m not allowed to find out til we’re on the plane :D
For the first time in 4 years I’m actually enjoying reading my textbook.
Pediatrics is the class I’ve been waiting for ever since I decided I wanted to become a nurse my senior year of high school. This semester I’ll be on the oncology floor at the Denver Children’s Hospital, which is an honor and a privilege. I can’t wait to start.
But I’m finding myself even more excited about obstetrics. That’s something I’ve never considered until recently.
I love my major. The possibilities are endless :)
This is one of my absolute favorite pictures from our engagement shoot. I can’t believe I get to marry this guy :)
A few weeks ago at a Mill City meeting, Aaron Stern had everyone take a Personality/Leadership Style quiz. These are my results:
S/C’s are diplomatic and steady, as well as detail-oriented. Stable and contemplative, they light to weigh the evidence and discover the facts to come to a logical conclusion. More deliberate, they prefer to take their time, especially when the decision involves others. Possible weaknesses include being highly sensitive and unable to handle criticism, and they also need to be aware of the way they treat others. Operating best in precise and cause-worthy projects, the S/C Can be a peacemaker; this makes them a loyal team member and friend.
Opportunities for Personal Growth:
If you are an “S” - Steady, Stability, Analytical, People-oriented, Introverted
A. Consider how change is healthy. Try to change more willingly.
B. Be more direct in your interactions.
C. Focus on overall goals of your family or group rather than on specific procedures.
D. Deal with confrontation constructively.
E. Develop more flexibility.
F. Try to show more initiative.
