wrong number!

the last five calls that i’ve picked up on my dorm phone have been the wrong number. one of them was victoria’s secret asking me if i wanted to take advantage of their new biofit pushup bra. thanks vicky, i heard that sounds amazing, but right now i don’t have the cash to splurge on a $50+ bra.

now if you told me this is guaranteed to get me free drinks, and/or pay for my college loans, THEN i’m willing to reconsider.

so today as i was doing some end-of-the-year clean up, the dorm phone rang. reluctantly i picked up the phone and with whatever’s left of a voice that i do have i said..

“hello?”

..”FELICIDADES!”

::CLICK::

that’s it. i’m unplugging it. so if you would like to reach me or koga, we have cell phones.

side note: i’ve been blogging a lot lately, i need to mapquest my voice because it’s lost, there’s a pinched nerve on my right shoulder, and i’m going to be a senior in less than a week. HOLY SMOKES BATMAN!



GOOD GAME

after a hellish couple of days during your last week of school, it’s nice when you can spend it eating frozen yogurt & eating pink’s with good company.

not to mention having your best friend and a homegirl surprise you all the way from Riverside to L.A. with cupcakes just to celebrate friendship.

cupcake

and i love that i’ve been checking my facebook inbox for the last 4 days replying to a message that has evolved into a 106+ message thread from my E-Board discussing everything from what we should do on thursday night, to jon and kate getting a divorce, to dirty jokes,to the chronicles of narnia, to pinched nerves and raging hormones.

and i love how the whole day today everyone has been in and out of my room just to take naps, cut hair, and do those stupid facebook “5 things you can’t leave the house without” survey things.

“Unwavering, selfless friendships are hard to come by these days.”

Mmm.. i think it’s because I took them all? haha just kidding.

But in all honesty, I am eternally blessed.
And even though for the last 48 hours i’ve been having the sniffles and sneeze attacks, i feel pretty damn good (considering).

but if i hear someone accuse me of having the swine flu one more time i swear natasha mendez is gonna cut a bitch

goodnight!

p.s. have you listened to “have you ever” by brandy lately? that song is so fuckin sad!

during a hectic last day of postponed and/or missing meds, beeping biPaPs, dipping oxygen saturations, suctioning, discussing the lakers, life goals, the city of Encino, winning sarcastic comments and comebacks, assessing, reassessing and being screamed at by one of my patients..

my (male) nurse turned to me and said,

“You know what? I’m really glad I met you.”


this statement took me by surprise because he had this sort of sassy mc sassafrass i’m sort of a bad ass type attitude. the type that establishes various
bromances with the docs and isn’t afraid to bust four letter words while
giving report.

homie said “oh FUCK. ME.” when our patient started satting at 85% HAHA.

but that statement made me think about if i said that enough to people.
so if you’re reading this, you probably know me.
ERGO you’ve made a significant (it’s true) impact on my life.

and

You know what?
I’m really glad I met you.

P.S. LET’S GO I HAVE A CRUSH ON A MALE NURSE

my body is weak, achy, and restless. i’m crawling on all fours to the end of the line, but i’m doing it with a smile on my face.

i can sleep easy tonight because i know i have people who care about me, who support me, who love me for every imperfection and flaw.

i can rest easy because no matter how perilous my journey i am in God’s hands.

tonight before i peel off my day and sneak into slumber, i’m going to dedicate my prayers to those who are not so lucky

who do not have as strong a support group as i do, or whose network has gotten weak, weary, hopeless..

I will pray that God will give them the strength to carry their cross, and to give us the courage to help them.

Because as Mother Teresa said,

“Bitterness blinds life. Love anoints its eyes. For love is neither blind nor dumb. It can SEE and it can LEARN.”

I stand by the belief that we are more divine than human.
And it that gift of grace that gives us the ability to endure anything.

anything

goodnight
