I passed my CNA so now I applied for the nursing program, pray I get it! I have one C on my record which puts me down a bit and may ruin me...but pray!
If I don't get that than I am automatically in the criminal justice program and will be done by next may. SO yeah...but I want nursing!

I have them. I am sick of doing school and working and treading water in life waiting for something to happen.
I am sick of hoping for love and only getting heartbreak when I realize no one loves me like that who I can truthfully love back. And I am sick of men falling in love with me when I know I could never love them the way they would want me too.
AH. Lets just say I am sick of it all...
I wish I could live in the solace of my guitar. I wish I could always sleep on the rooftop where all I see is stars, I wish I had someone, I wish I had best friends like I did when I was little and we could giggle all night long about nothing and be happy, I wish relationships didn't change.
And I wish people didn't die.
Or lie to me when they say they would change and then they don't when I have put so much hope in them.
I feel like King David, lamenting over all the things in my life that bring me sorrow...focus Melody focus! Jesus, the one you claim to love is here. He is catching your tears and holding you close when sobs rack your heart! He is telling you not to worry and to focus! To focus on eternity!
Oh my soul be still...or else you will go insane.

And now for more from my beautiful model, Brette VanLoon. I get good practice in picture taking and she makes it easy cause she's pretty dang gorgeous!
So thats it from a little downtown Red Wing sabbatical!

So I just finished taking a nursing assistant class. Yay for me!
It was mostly fun, but quite frankly the clinicals were not so great. I made a guy pass out in the EZ lift! AHHHH! But anyways. The class itself was fun, especially the lab portion. I mostly worked with a girl named Amy and we had a blast. I mean what makes quicker friends than practicing placing bedpans and giving partial baths? So even though I have no desire to be an NA, I needed to take the class in order to get into my Nursing Program.
So now its back to real life after taking two weeks in classes and hanging out in the lab. Oh well!

I went and saw it tonight...ugh. I gave in after hearing that it was such a good movie with such a good moral message. Right...buried underneath a staggering body count. It was probably the darkest, most depressing, unredeemed, and disturbing movie I have ever seen.
Ok guys, I'm not trying to be legalistic but really! It was 2.5 hours of death, killing, and lying for a small redemption at the end. Maybe I'm crazy but it just was disturbing. What is the point of watching that? Its just so dark. I did not, nor did anyone in my group, leave the theatre feeling good about that movie. So I asked people why watch it...and they told me because of the redemption in the end. Batman takes the wrong on his shoulders even though he didn't do any wrong...wait a minute I think I've heard this story before.
Oh yeah you can read about it in the bible without wading through hours of darkness and needless brutality.
