Mo' money, mo' problems.

I've started my big girl nursing job. I can't describe how much this job has stretched my comfort zone, half the time I get home and can't believe at where I've ended up. I mean that in both good and bad ways.
I'm learning to serve.
I'm learning patience.
I'm learning my capacity to do what needs to be done.
I'm learning just what I'm made of.
I've had an up-and-down week. On the downside, my first week on the job was rough. Like... REALLY rough. To top it all off, I've caught myself the flu despite getting the flu shot! Bugger.
On the up-side, I just got the new Bon Iver album on vinyl, it's everything I hoped it would be and more. Except for one track that sounds like a 90s pop abomination. But I'll let it slide this time. If you haven't heard this album yet, go listen to it right now! It will change your life!

Sept 15, 1945

Sometimes, the wisest words come from people who don't know what year it is.

She looked at me with unseeing eyes, a trembling hand, and a drawer of stolen trinkets;
"You are lovely, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks and it doesn't matter what you think.
If you don't like where you are, if you aren't happy, then get out. You're too young to be unhappy. But if you have found something that you love, or someone you love, you never let that go."

Yes, she may not know who the president is... but she speaks more truth than I have heard in a long time.

Picture yourself as friends with yourself.
Now think about all the things you tell yourself every day.
"Why aren't your eyes bigger?"
"Why did you just say something so stupid?"
"You should probably work out more".

Would you be friends with you?
Today, I'm going to try to be a better friend.
