Here I go!

This is my first official blog I created just for my nursing adventures.  I am currently starting the second semester in my 2nd year of my 4 year BSN degree(wow that sound confusing).  This semester I am finishing up most of my general requirements which include classes like Statistics, Interpersonal Communications, Fitness for Life, Race/Ethnicty, and Existentialism. 
I lived in central Wisconsin with my husband of 13 years, and my two children daughter (14), and son (10).  We live in a nice sized (but slowly becoming more cozy sized) home that we own.  I love Wisconsin, I love living up north.  I love the changing of the seasons, the huge pine trees and lots of lakes around.  This summer has been extremely humid  and quite warm, but I enjoyed most of it because I still am not a huge fan of the winter months and the 20 degree below zero weather.
I recently have been accepted into the nursing program and start my first nursing classes this January.  I am sooo thrilled to pieces I can't get over it.  I was recently reading another blog by NurseXY and was quite inspired to start blogging through the process of my experiences.  I look forward to some day being able to talk like a nurse and know what I mean when I say big words.
I'm a very optimistic person who has a heart the size of Texas!  I grew up in Minneapolis along with living near the Dallas area and have seen some harsh realities of a bigger city.  I wouldn't classify myself as being naive, so I'm seasoned in my perception of other people and I still genuinely love getting to know and learn about other people and their differences.  I think we all are unique and have interesting stories and I hope to get to know others through this blog and through school on my way to becoming a nurse.
I just had my first class of Existentialism last night and have to say that I'm not sure if I'll like the class.  Kinda conflicts with my faith and to see past that and just appreciate the class for what its meant for is difficult right now.  I'll blog more about that later.
