Day 01--Introduction

My name is Lizzie. I am 22 and the bane of my life and soon to be boon to society (pardon the dramatization, but how many of you wake up at 5 in the morning to wipe stranger's asses?) is becoming a nurse. I am in the Clinical Nurse Leader program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, which gets me a generalist Master's of Science and enables me to sit for the NCLEX-RN and for CNL certification. I am about to finish my third semester. I was going to graduate in May of 2011 but have opted to graduate in December of 2011 and gain experience by working as a Student Nurse for my last two semesters, which will hopefully help me to get my foot in the door when looking for a job as an RN. Also, I want to wear scrubs that are NOT UMD's unattractive white top and khaki bottom.

I live in Downtown Baltimore, but also right on top of Mount Vernon (one of Baltimore's "cultured" and artsy-fartsy neighborhoods. Filled with Maryland Institute College of Art kids and Peabody folks).  I love my roommate Nina (even if she's allergic to cats!) and my plant collection.  Nina is lawyer and works for University of Marlyland with HIV positive clients and families, providing free legal counseling.  She is very kind and doesn't seem to mind that sometimes I lag on the dishes (my least favorite chore--but I clean the apartment once a week or every other week, so we're even).

I enjoy reading, cooking, doing yoga, learning about and taking care of my plants, movies, TV shows on DVD (right now working on Homicide: Life on the Street), and taking pictures with my digital camera. It's a skill I would like to hone. I used to write ALL the TIME, filling up 1 or 2 journals a year AND writing on my livejournal. It's something I would like to get back into. It helps me to identify positive traits about myself and contemplate my identity and self-worth, if that makes any sense. I also enjoy drinking wine and think it would be awesome to become a sommelier. I also want to get certified as a doula (a lay birthing assistant) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified. Since these last two may involve a salary bump, they should probably come first but I must think about what is the most delicious.  I am also CRAZY about animals...I must have a million cute pictures saved on my laptop.

I have been going through a very rough patch over the past few months and am trying many different things to pull myself out of my rut.

Nearly stepped on a needle with syringe lying on the street today. I was wearing flip flops, so, some protection...but I jumped about 5 feet in the air. I love this city.

I AM WRITING IT DOWN.

All of it every bit I can remember while I wait for something better than benzodiazepines and trying to figure out my counseling.

I feel like I'm turning into Oxford again.

At least two of mt friends and my boyfriend have said I'm not your therapist, yo, though not like that.

When do I get to mourn? I need to now, at the time when a gal needs her mom most. Manage my money! Help me find furniture! Chainsmoke with me!

God.
