Accomplishing The Unexpected: Taxes and Blogging!

Hello! After much deliberation, I caved and decided to start blogging! Please bear with me as I slooowly learn the ins and outs of all of this!

To elaborate a little more, I'm a 23 y/o full time college student whose path has been set, or so I think? I have been working as a Licensed Practical Nurse for 3+ years now and have finally buckled down to go back to school for my AAS in Nursing (wooo! Registered Nursing!).  I come from a large family of nurses and I absolutely love what I do. But if I could have it my way, I'd be a professional baker-makeup guru-photographing-nurse! But alas, I am not Superwoman. So the former three have evolved into my hobbies/passions :) So be prepared to hear me rant/rave/write/post about anything from my favorite makeup to the not-so-glamorous life of Nursing!


Today is what I like to call Tackling Taxes Thursday! Ok ok...technically it's Friday as I write this, but who's keeping tabs?  So after much frustration and a few choice 4-letter words I screamed at my computer, I finally completed my taxes. Pheeeew! Let's take a second to cherish the moment (::pause for effect::). Ok! A big thanks to my mom, the tax guru, for all her help. She definetely knows her stuff about accounting, taxes, and all that stuff that makes you go yaaaaawn and helped me to get the maximum refund possible! I can't wait to go on a shopping spree be responsible and put that money into savings! :P

I'd love to go on, but I'm having a late-night mental block. Not to mention, the sound of Oprah in the background is quite the distraction.

So I leave you with this! (I thought it was semi-fitting since I will be meeting new people on here!)
                Confucius say: "When you meet someone better than
                  yourself, turn your 
thoughts to becoming his equal.
you meet someone not as good as you are, look                         
                  within and examine your own self."
