Things that I can say... I am a nurse and I love my profession. My patients make me laugh, cry, curse, and appreciate. I wouldn't have it any other way. I love being outside and soaking up all that mother nature has to offer. I often hike in sundresses. I love people but I am usually skeptical of them before liking them, which is one of my many flaws. I don't smile constantly because I had braces for seven years and got accustomed to hiding my teeth, so if you can make me smile or laugh then I know you are good people. I embrace education but recognize that academia is just one route among many paths that we can take in life. Some of the most brilliant people I know didn't go to college or even finish high school for that matter. My life will be a journey of trying to better myself and knowing that there is always much room for improvement and growth. I don't think anyone (minus maybe the Dalai Lama and I'm still not sure on that one) ever truly reaches self- actualization.
I'm originally from the South and I embrace my roots. Sometimes I still say y'all...
I just moved to Providence so I am trying to meet new people and get established in the Boston metro area. Aside from work, I do a good deal of volunteering. I work mostly with survivors of sexual assault but also try to volunteer my time as a nurse when possible.
