8 months ago

So, 8 months ago today I went on a date. He was going to pick me up at my house but got lost. Met him at the Bill Miller’s (a BBQ place by my house) and he followed me to the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater. We watched 21 Jump Street. I had never been more nervous in my life, I wasn’t even sure if it was a date…I turned to my sister. She said I should offer to pay but if he pays for everything then it’s a date. Check. Ugh then there was that awkward moment with the armrest. That dreaded armrest. Here’s this awesome, incredibly handsome guy that I’m out with. We met in school. He’s in my pediatric clinical and great with kids. Where is his flaw? So back to the armrest…he leaves it up! Good sign #2? I could not tell you a single thing that happened during that movie. I spent the entire time looking at his hand and trying not to fuck things up, say the wrong thing, or do something stupid, what if he’s not into me…and so on. The movie ends and we walk out. Have not touch once, not even accidental brush of arms. This sexy man walks me to my car, says what a great time he had and we should do it again next weekend. Leans in and…shakes my shoulder…lol. It was sweet and endearing but I could help but wanting to kiss the hell out of him! The next date went about the same way. Third day was our first kiss and it was magical. I always thought people were crazy when they say they feel a kiss in their knees but I felt that shit in my toes and back up to my ear lobes. Over the next 8 months we have grown together and he makes me insanely happy! I never thought I could be this happy. We have our ups and downs. i’m not gonna lie we are not a perfect couple but I didn’t think it was even possible for me to be in love this much but he truly is the love of my life. I try everyday to be the best person I can be to feel worthy to call him mine. He’s amazing and sweet and handsome and treats me like a queen! I could never even imagine a better man to be in my life. He goes beyond being the man of my dream. A song from Juno wraps us up pretty perfectly…

You are always trying to keep it real
I’m in love with how you feel
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
We both have shiny happy fits of range
You want more fans, I want more stage
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else but you


Night Shift Problems

Last month of nursing school and we do an Immersion program where we follow one nurse for 8 of her sifts. I got my first choice, which was the NICU!! Yay me…but I’m working nights. Ok, that’s cool, I’m a night person. But after working 2 nights in a row while sleeping all day, who the fuck can sleep that next night. Not this girl, that’s for damn sure. So what do I do? Take a break from my arts and crafts to go on a 4 hour search on how to make a blog, when all along I had an app for that. Obviously I’m more crafty than techy.
