10 Reasons Why Nurses Make The Best Friends
Blakelynn Sherouse

Many have that one friend, but if you're smart you'll surround yourself with at least a few. Nursing friends are the ones you want to be there when bad goes to worst. Because of their hectic lives, nursing friends may not always be there when you necessarily want them, but they are definitely there when you need them. If you are lucky to have friends that are nurses or nursing students treasure them and treat them well because you have no idea the things their eyes have seen. But to those of you that don't have a nursing friend, these are the reasons they are the best.... So get on the hunt! Befriend a nurse!

1. They tell the best stories.

No identifying pieces are ever told of course. #HIPAA

2. They have a great sense of humor.

It can sometimes be a sick sense of humor but we can nearly laugh at anything.

3. They are licensed and certified to save your life.

RN, BSN, ALS, BLS, and/or PALS, etc. after our name means YOU'RE GOOD.

4. They are always down to sit back and have a glass of wine with ya

"It's good for the heart..."

5. Round the clock medical advice.

"I know you're worried but it looks like a mosquito bite... I think you'll be fine."

6. Old hand me down scrubs for you to lounge in.

Yes, they are like PJ's you wear to work.

7. They are sarcastic and sassy.

We see private parts on the daily, what about your job?

8. They are honest.

"Yeah..... I would go get that checked out."

9. They can make a mean cup 'o Joe.

We run it through our veins in a 16 gauge IV before a shift.

10. They are trustworthy.

Taught confidentiality, we'll only tell our closest coworker. But we are here when you most need us.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
