14 Struggles Of Having A Friend In Nursing School

One of my best friends is a nursing student, most of my other friends fall into that same category as well, and sometimes it can be a struggle. Not that they aren't working their butts off to save lives every day, that is freaking awesome...but finding time to spend together is not always easy. We make it work, though, because one day I will be sick and I will need all of my little nurse friends to help me out, plus they are like a real-life Greys so who could argue with that?

1. Hanging out on weeknights is out of the question, you might as well go ahead and recap "The Bachelor" via text, and do it like two days later because they don't have time for that

2. Weekends are usually hard too, just try to make plans like two weeks in advance

3. If they have clinical in the morning, text them and tell them you're praying for them, be motivational and sarcastic at the same time to lighten the mood

4. Give them wine...lots of wine

5. If they ask you if they can practice on you, suck it up and let them...just think about Derek Shepard the whole time it should make things easier

6. Send them tips you learn while watching "Grey's" because after 12 seasons, you're a nurse too, right?

7. When they complain about a bad grade tell them the truth, that it doesn't matter because they haven't given up. Then go buy them ice cream and candy

8. Thank them for diagnosing your headache that you thought was a brain tumor (cons of being a "Grey's" addict) as a potential ear infection, and encouraging you never to listen to what you read on the internet!

9. Blow up their phone while they are studying with all kinds of fun things they can take a break and read...they may be annoyed but they know they love it so just do it

10. Stay up late with them while they are "dying" in the 24-hour library

11. Don't mind the fact that they take 4-hour naps in the middle of the day and don't reply to your texts for hours because...it happens

12. When they actually want to go out, go with them. This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. GO WITH THEM. THIS MAY BE A ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY

13. Tell them that they are pretty and that the circles under their eyes they won't quit complaining about are signs of hard work and determination

14. Give them more wine

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.
