My name is Austin! I'm a night shift RN who lives and breathes
critical care. I'm addicted to the adrenaline rush and learning new
things all day, everyday.
What I’m doing with my life
Working full time as an ICU nurse, always looking for ways to grow
in my career, besides grad school for now. I'm involved in our unit
improvement committee and working on my CCRN certification.
I have a soft spot for cats and dogs. I currently volunteer at the
Forsyth Humane Society.
Work hard, play hard. (sorry not sorry)
I’m really good at
-Putting things off
-Being 'almost' late
-Paying attention to details
-Laughing at inappropriate times
-Making tea and forgetting about it
-Not getting queasy...ever
-Keeping hair appointments
-Missing doctor appointments
-Not thinking enough
-Being a smartass

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I'll eat almost anything! I shy away from red meat typically just because I prefer chicken or fish. I love sushi and Thai food. I've been accused of being a beer snob. I just like the good kind!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, what I want out of life. I think most people my age
think about this though. A lot of my close friends are getting
married and buying houses and thinking babies. So it's hard to not
think about the future being surrounded with all of that.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working, I'm usually at a friend's house or out with a
small group. Or staying in if I worked a lot that week. I'm low
key. I love going out for dinner or getting a drink somewhere
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have chip clips shaped like cats.
