WOO HOO!!! My first EVER award!!!

I feel so special right now! One of my favorite bloggy friends was kind enough to pass down a neat little blog award to me. Thanks Marianne for popping my blog award cherry. :p

So without further ado, here are ten random confessions that you may or may not care to know.

1.I am a HUGE procrastinator. In fact, I am blogging right now to avoid doing the pile of homework I have to get finished today including my A&P presentation, a couple of essays for my Art class, and studying for my last lab exam this week. I also need to find my social security card so I can enroll in the CNA course and have yet to put forth an effort to even try to locate the damn thing. Last semester I finished my 10 page research paper for my Developmental Psych class in one day which also happened to be the day it was due. This is probably something I should really work on before it bites me in the ass in NS.

2. I hate chocolate. (“What?!” “Huh?” “You can’t be serious!!!”) Yes, it’s true. I am not a fan of chocolate. Chocolate cake, chocolate pie, chocolate candy, chocolate anything. I can’t stand it. People think I am full of it when I tell them this, after all isn’t it a typical stereotype that ALL women love chocolate? I defy the rules I tell ya.

3. I am trying to woo this chick into being my friend but I think I am coming off as rather stalkerish. There was something about her the first time we met that I really liked. She is always happy and cheerful, super fashionable, and just seems like someone I could really click with. I feel like I am coming off a bit like a desperate creep though so it might be time to back off before I unintentionally offer up my first born child in exchange for her friendship.

4. I am only on number four and running out of things to confess.

5. That makes me feel slightly lame.

6. I hate making small talk with people. I’m not any good at it. I usually end up sharing way too much with potential friends because I can’t think of anything to talk about. I hate talking about the weather, people only want to hear so much about your kids, or nursing school, or your boring job.

7. I think I have social anxiety. Actually, I’m pretty sure I do. I get nervous and sweat and most of the time would rather not go out with a bunch of people I don’t know because I get all awkward and nervous when I am out in public. (see #6)

8. I was really disappointed when I found out my youngest was a girl. I wouldn’t trade her for the world now though and sometimes I feel like I might favor her over my oldest and that makes me feel like a crap mom.

9. I’m only on #9?

10. I have had a ton of people jump into my following lately and that makes me feel super happy. I love logging in and seeing I have a new follower. When I started this blog I had no idea I would even develop a following and figured no one would be interested in the crap I have to say. I must say, that I am falling in love with the world of blogging more and more every day.

So there you have it. 10 confessions (ok, I realize I cheated a little) Now it’s my turn to pass on the award to some of my favorite blog friends.

1) Christine @ A Journey Through Nursing School….& Beyond – You are an amazing woman and I hope you know this.

2) At Your Cervix – Thank you for all of your thoughtful comments on my blog lately. I love reading your honesty on your blog about what you do and how you feel about it. You are the kind of nurse I look up to and hope to become.

3) Will @ Drawing on Experience – You are freakin hilarious! I absolutely love your drawings and hope you take this award so I can see what you come up with.

4) Nursing Student Mom @ Diary Confessions of a Nursing Student Mom – She is a newbie blogger like me and we seem to be on the same timeline for this crazy ride called Nursing School.

5) Belinda @ Too Many Hats – You have inspired me in so many ways and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate it.

6) The Girl @ The Girl Next Door Grows Up – I love how you have such a HUGE following and you still make time to comment on small blogs like mine. Not to mention, you make me try to feel good about myself at least once a week and that is very much appreciated.

7) Rn2b @ Send a Man To Nursing School – You have really made me think long and hard about a lot of things in my life lately and I want to thank you for your wise words you have offered up recently.

8) Michelle @ Pink Haired Momma – What can I say? I love your quirkiness and they way you are absolutely in love with little baby Diva.

9) Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Working Mom – You also have such a huge following and you too make time to comment on my blog. I also love your honestly about raising your kiddo and being a working mom.

10) Crazed Mom @ Chasing Myself – You are so open with your feelings and I love that about you. I wish I could reach through the computer sometimes and give you a great big hug.

So there you have it. My first award passed on to you. I hope you feel special. :)


  1. stole your award virginity-- hope it was as good for you as it was for me HAHA.

    You totally cheated.

    I wish I had done what you did, giving the personal messages to each person you tagged, that was really smart. I kind of want to go back and do it :/

    And I think you've just had really bad chocolate. How can you hate it? You know that commercial that says, "Do you dream in chocolate?" I do. All the time. I could watch the intro to Willy Wonka repeatedly.

    Annnnnnnnnd-- isn't new followers an awesome and weird feeling? I remember being stuck at 7 for like a month (back in January) and couldn't believe 7 people cared to read my blog. Baffling. And I love blogging more and more each day. Mostly because of how positive, support, and uplifting the people I read and who read me are. It's amazing.

    Laura (The Girl) is an amazing woman, isn't she? I seriously want to give her a hug every time she comments on my blog, she knows the perfect thing to say at the perfect time. Her real life friends are very fortunate. Wanna move to Minnesota with me and talking stalking to a whole new level?

  2. LOL!! Marianne, you are hilarious!!! Congrats on the award it's just me!! Wish we could all work on the floor in the future together...

  3. Is that a challenge? I love challenges!

  4. Thank you so much.
    Am only glad that my bits and pieces of thought are helpful to you.

    My first award! Not sure what to do...
    Is it suitable for framing?
    Or, do I pin it to my chest? :)

  5. After a pretty stressful couple of days, I thought I'd stop by (even though I should be studying) and saw I was in your top ten blogs!! Thank you so much, you made my day! :) It's nice to be able to find others who I can relate to when it comes to not only being a nursing student, but juggling life and a family on top of it. I'm so glad I happened to stumble across the world of blogging! LOVE IT! :) BTW-I can relate to a lot of your "confessions" except chocolate...I draw the line there! I absolutely enjoy ALL and ANY kind of chocolate! Not a good thing when your in nursing school though! Anyway...enough of my babbling! Have a blessed day.
