Another One Bites The Dust 👐🏾

Alexa, cue another one bites the dust by Queen! It has been a long time guys. I am one to admit 2020 was a long year but guess what? 2020 is over! We made it to 2021. Does anybody else feel like it took forever to get here? While the COVID 19 pandemic did take a major toll on the year, all was not lost. There were a lot of exciting things that happened! So, if you don’t mind I’ll give a recap of the latter part of my year! March-July Okay so, March is where I’m going to star

The Apartment Search 👀

Alexa play New Apartment by Ari Lennox Okay guys so 6 months after moving to my new city, Houston, TX, I decided it was time for me to get out of my aunt’s house and get an apartment of my own. Starting off I thought I wanted an apartment locator to help find one. There are so many apartments in Houston, and I wasn’t sure what area I wanted to live in. I had friends living in Pearland and family that lived in Missouri City and along Beltway 8. Other neighborhoods I had heard

808s and Heartbreak 💔

Okay guys, I know I usually talk about nursing but it’s about time I shake things up a bit. It’s a topic I’m being completely transparent about…heartbreak. We all have had our fair share. Idk about you guys but I like to compare my situations to celebrities. I mean if they can get through it with all the scrutiny from tabloids and paparazzi while still coming out on top, then I sure as hell can. Back to the subject at hand, things are going to break your heart. Whether it’s a

Surviving SUSON Part 2 ✌🏾

To start, I feel like I owe you guys an apology. This blog post has been on my mind and heart for a very long time but every time I sat down to write it I would get distracted or something would come up so I am sorry to the SUSON students who have been waiting on this for ages. I literally write this on behalf of you guys. Here is the next part to my two-part series of Surviving SUSON. So, let’s dive right into it, shall we? 310/315 By the time I started this semester I actua

*Beep Beep* It's the Car Story 🚙

Hey guys! I know it has been a while since my last post but guess who’s back and better than ever? It’s me. Many people asked me about my experience buying a car directly out of school. So, this my friends, is my experience. My car (2008 Nissan Altima Coupe) had decided to act a little funny. I had just replaced a transmission in a old car and traded it for another car and the transmission in that car was going bad too. I did the only thing I felt was right to do, I went to t

Komeback SZN ​💋

Guysssssssss it’s been too long! I am so sorry about that, but it was so necessary. I made the biggest leap of my life and I couldn’t be happier. For those who know me personally, it’s known that I have wanted to move to Houston since I was a little girl. But for my readers, I am about to open up to you guys on a whole different level… so boom here it is, my first blog post back from my moving hiatus - The Return of the Klassic Nurse.

SURVIVING SUSON PART I

Hey, guys, I feel like I'm always speaking so highly of my alma mater, Southern University and A&M College, so this, my friends, is the SUSON session. I'm going to talk about everything SUSON and how I made it through nursing school. I chose to attend Southern University for a few different reasons! First and foremost, my grandfather was a big supporter of historically black colleges and universities especially because he attended Grambling State University in Grambling, LA.

P. U. S. H. 🙏🏾

Pray Until Something Happens So guys, most of you know I have wanted to move. What you don't know is I have been regretting my decision to come home and work. So many people told me to go home for a while before moving to save money. I really wish I would have listened to my gut instead of other people. I drive from my hometown of Natchitoches, LA to Shreveport, LA every time I work. I work 4 days a week one week and 3 days the next week and it doesn't allow for much time to

The Worst Night on​ 8 Tower

So have you ever had the worst possible night or day at work and you just could not believe any of the things that were going on? This was me the other night at work. First, let me give you some background. It was my weekend to work. I got to work on a Friday night and got 4 patients, which is really good because normally I have 6.

The Resilient Nurse Houston Edition Part 1

So today was very eventful. My good friend (Jaslynn) and I traveled from Louisiana to Houston so we can attend the resilient nurse workshop tomorrow with THE Nurse Mo and her affiliates. But let's back track a bit to my full week! Soooooooooo this week was my short week. I worked Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday. Sunday was great and went by very smooth. Wednesday was Halloween and literally the night from hell. As most people know there is a nursing shortage just about everywh

NEVER Count Yourself Out!

One thing that nursing school taught me was to never count yourself out of anything. You can do whatever you set your mind to do. When I first started nursing school it was really culture shock to me. The classes were different,, studying was different, even the professors were different. I was a straight A student through high school and graduated salutatorian. During my first year and a half of college while I was taking prerequisites, I barely had to study it was basically
