Words that make me happy: wanna dress up?
This summer I'll be working out of town and would love some pen pals to just shoot the shit with. It's an awesome opportunity that involves lots of hiking, nursing, and plenty of time to read. As well, I get to shadow at a state psychiatric hospital which is an absolute dream come true!
I like new things, new music, new adventures, new food, new places, anything that adds value to my life or broadens my horizon. Curious and open-minded. I dare you to shock me.
And finally- I wish everyday could be Halloween!
Think, think, think...
Nurse Ratched is my hero.
