I have an award!

I must be amazing or something.

I got this awesome award from Mary for my overwhelming awesomeness. Yay! I feel special! And I must be one of the few people who like these memes....

And the rules are:
1. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.

2. Show the 7 winners' names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Scrap.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

3. List at least ten honest things about yourself.

10 Honest Things:
~I like to turn the water on my kitty when when she sits in the sink. It makes me laugh so hard.

~I love the snow. But I HATE cleaning it off my windshield. And getting it in my shoes. Actually, snow isn't nearly as much fun anymore after you're grown up.

~I'm totally desperate for a baby, but we're not even trying yet.

~It irritates me a lot when patients are nurses or have family who are nurses. It becomes a sort of power/territory struggle. I really don't want to hear you drop random knowledge just to make it clear to me that you're a nurse and we're "on the same level."

~I am ADDICTED to "The Girls Next Door." It's a weakness.

~I've also recently become addicted to The Biggest Loser. I watch lame TV. Go Tara!

~Speaking of lame TV, I'm also recently addicted to "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." It's like a bad car crash. It hurts my brain and it hurts my soul but I can't look away. I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

~I'm a little overly proud of myself for being a "Temporary RN." All I did was graduate and pay a lot of money, but I feel like I'm somebody special now.

~I'm probably the only person I know who loves these memes/awards and doing stupid survey stuff. Because I really feel that you all need to know random useless facts about me.

~I am 97% sure that I'm not going to pass the NCLEX, and the fact that I bs'd my way through nursing school is coming back to bite me in the form of not knowing anything I should. I don't feel smart or competent at all, and I get just a teensy bit annoyed when everybody assures me that I will pass, because I put on a good front and nobody knows how not smart I really am. Or too smart, because I'm able to fake it, until it really matters like with the NCLEX.

Wow, that's almost a little depressing. Way to end on a high note, jen. So to end on a high note that has nothing to do with the meme: I am in the most comfy pajama pants ever (which actually belong to my husband) and an over sized t-shirt that makes me feel comfy and wonderful and I'm not changing until I get into scrubs for work, which are also practically pajamas. Except slightly less comfortable, and I will have to wear a bra. Man, my life is hard.

Ok, 7 winners chosen by me whose blogs are brilliant in content or design (feel free to not pass on the award, because I know most people hate these things):

Emilia, because I find her posts very entertaining, and she's my awesome sister-in-law.
Kristina, because she doesn't have enough awards already. And she's funny.
Julianne, because I find her writing completely brilliant and always entertaining.
Wendy, even though I know she probably won't do it because she has a professional website, but you should check it out anyway. She takes awesome pictures. And has an amazing sense of style both in her blog and her home.
Shannon, also because she has this amazing sense of style that I'm totally jealous of. Moreso in her home than her blog, but I think you can see it there, too, and especially in her stupid amazingly photogenic pictures.
Naptime Nostalgia - I don't actually know this woman's name, I just blogstalk her, which also means she'll never know she won this prestigious award, but she's pretty entertaining. So I think she deserves it anyway.
Brittany, because I find her posts entertaining as well.

I find too many people entertaining. It was hard to narrow down the list. Enjoy!

Great job!! I am already psyching myself out that I'm gonna fail the NCLEX, and I just started my last semester!

I LOVE the biggest loser b/c it helped me lose my last 55lbs! I cry all the time & say talk to the screen, "I know how you feel!"

Julianne said...

Sweet! Thank you so very much for the award! You are so my newest buddy. Although -- I have to say, I'm not rooting for Tara, I'm completely in love with Dan on the orange team. OH, he's so terrific! I think it's his droll little mouth.

Well, and I shouldn't say I'm not rooting for Tara, because, hello, I'm rooting for them all. But I wish they would have voted Joelle off. Yes.

I have to tell you (because you will probably appreciate this and Ryan doesn't!) I randomly watched the biggest loser last week when Gerald from the white team got eliminated and cried!! I started really liking it and told Ryan I wanted to watch it - he just rolled his eyes. :)

Hey Jen, I totally know what you mean about people constantly telling you that you will do fine on the NCLEX, when most of them have no idea what it is or how ridiculous it is. The advice I can give you is, dont rush into it, if you dont feel ready dont take it, wait a week or so, but dont keep putting it off. Also, have some confidence in yourself. This is very difficult for me to do because I have failed it. I always thought that if I didnt get my hopes up too high then when I failed it wouldnt be so bad. Not true- go in with confidence, that is the advise that I have gotten from some personal tudors. I wish you the very best, and just keep practicing those questions and relax! :)

Hahaha! I would totally turn the water on Parley P. Cat if he sat in our sinks!

Thanks for the award!

I met Bridget in real life, btw. AMAZING. And I have to take a test after grad school to become an official SLP, and I'm super nervous about it too. I BS'd my way through the first semester of grad school, but luckily, I've started working hard and hopefully will learn enough to pass the Praxis 2 in a year or so.... You just got all my anxiety started, dangit!
