"I almost wish i hadn’t gone down that rabbit hole and yet it’s rather curious, you know, this sort of life!"

Another Year



Wow...23 was an eventful year. It was a year full of accomplishments and blessings. I am beyond grateful and so blessed. Let's look back at what I did this past year, shall we? Well, first off, I graduated nursing school in December! That was a major milestone in my life and I couldn't have done it without the love and support from my family and my super supportive boyfriend, Jonathan. He drove me to clinical every morning at 5am and picked me up at 730pm, made me breakfast, lunch and even brought me dinner. On top of all that, he still managed to occasionally surprise me with little things like a bouquet of flowers or my favorite snack, hot cheetos or hot fries. God blessed me with the best and I couldn't be more thankful. What else happened this year? Well, I got the chance to actually enjoy my winter break without having to worry about studying for the next semester because I graduated! Then I studied my ass off from the end of December all the way through March. I took my NCLEX, which is the huge exam that nurses have to take in order to become a Registered Nurse. I took my NCLEX on March 2nd and got my results on March 4th. Let me tell you about those two days...they were long and they were miserable! I was extremely depressed and stayed in bed both days. I literally thought I failed. Right after I took the test, I even went to Disneyland and that didn't even help cheer me up. Anyway, on March 4th, 2016, my name showed up on the California Board of Registered Nursing and I became a mothafuckin' Registered Nurse on March 4th at 1:46AM! I was so happy, I fucking cried and called my mom, my brother, my step dad, my dad. Shit, I called anybody and everybody! That was the happiest day of my life and I didn't sleep I was so excited! The very next day I applied for an internship to work at the hospital my mom worked at, except I applied for ICU. I got accepted and started on March 28th. March was a very busy and important month for me as life got real and started to go so fast. I was a new grad RN working in the ICU and shit was overwhelming for me. I cried so much the first 2-4 weeks, but it was all worth it in the end because just recently I got offered a full-time position in the ICU where I did my internship. I am so blessed and I feel so accomplished. I worked my ass off this year and now I am a new grad, working as a full-time staff RN in the ICU...the fucking ICU! I always told myself in nursing school that when I become a nurse, I want to work somewhere that would challenge me; either emergency nursing or critical care nursing. And what did I do? I finessed my way and landed my first job as an RN in the ICU. This is an unbelievable feeling and I just feel so blessed and thankful. This is the start of my fucking life!!!! I did it! I became a fucking RN at 23 and started my nursing career at the young age of 23. I'm not stopping here. I am currently enrolled in a BSN program. So I will be getting my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing soon. I am on top of the world right now and nothing can stop me!
