If we were having tea…

Because I don’t drink coffee. But I do have so much to tell you.

It’s been several weeks since I suddenly stopped posting (again). I’m back in Norway, back in school, and have already had my first exam. In two weeks I have another. Ususally we have our exams at the end of the semester, but the second year Nursing students will spend months at the hospital, so the idea is to get the exams out of the way.


The days are becoming shorter and shorter, but feel longer and longer.

I don’t blog that much about it, but studying Nursing is hard. In this week alone we have done (on each other): peripheral venous catheter, sub q pain pump, several different injections, and nasogastric tube. There’s been a lot of blood. Suffice to say, I’m tired at the end of the day.


It took a couple of tries, but everyone finally found a vein!

Despite the struggle, I’m happy. I’ve started dancing again, I’m spending more time with the people I care about, and ultimately doing more of the things that I love. I just often find myself exhausted. I wish I had more energy to blog. I haven’t even answered all of your amazing comments. I have read them though, and appreciated Every. Single. One.


Thanks for sticking with me through it all!

Lastly, I just want to wish you well. Feel free to tell me about what you’ve been up to since I’ve been gone! And if you’ve had a bad week, remember it’s almost Friday. It’s almost Friday!

  1. “You do you” as they say. At first, I saw you in a hospital picture and was concerned for a minute. Read the article and was relieved haha. Great to hear you’re starting dancing again: a feat which I admit will never conquer :P. Looking forward to seeing your blogging and schooling both goes 🙂

    1. Haha, everyone can’t do everything! (Thank goodness) Although I do believe that everyone can dance. Somewhat at least🙈 Thank you for your nice comment, it put a smile on my face:)


      1. Haha very true! It’s been 7 years since I’ve done any real dancing and even then I wasn’t all that coordinated haha.

        I’m glad I was able to put a smile on your face. We should all smile more these days. 🙂

  2. I was just wondering about you and your studies the other day. You’ve chosen a very valuable career that will touch the lives of thousands, so it’s appropriate that it occupy the majority of your attention right now!

    Concentrate on your education, of course, but try to let your worldwide followers in on how you are doing once in a while. 🙂

  3. I know nursing is HARD. I had roommates in College who were nursing students. I commend you. One of my daughters is studying for a degree in prosthetics. That is hard too, but she loves working with the patients… sounds like YOU do to!

    I know you are probably tired, but Blogging is a good outlet. Try and THINK that you Blog “once a week” that is manageable. Maybe you tell us once a week something that you learned or that you had to deal with OR maybe you just post of cup of coffee, because that will make you STAY AWAKE. There is always something we can post, even if it is just a photo or a funny quote, it keeps us connected.

    GOOD LUCK with your studies. I got a great laugh from your mud bath photo… you see and that was mainly what it was… a funny photo. http://www.brilliantviewpoint.com


  4. Now I am looking at this blog as something that will dive me into the nurse studies in Norway 🙂 I really love biology but somehow I didn’t like it when I had a chance to choose it as my profession. And I don’t think I am strong enough to witness injections and dissections. But I like the functioning part. So I am glad came across your blog 🙂
    Thanks for sharing with us!
