Before I start my studies, I make a list of everything that I need to do for the next three days of school work. Doing this makes sure that I don’t miss anything. It is also a nice feeling to see what I have accomplished. I normally do this on a Monday and I try [...]

Holding On

by Allison September 28, 2012

After Fontbonne, I will be going home to St John’s School of Nursing in Springfield, Illinois. I really hoped that I could stay in St. Louis because I call St. Louis my home now, and I would hate to leave all my friends here, but in reality, it’s better on my pocketbook to go home [...]

Easter Chaos

by Allison April 9, 2012

I have two big reasons why I love Easter so much. Saturday we celebrate with my father’s side, and Sunday we go to my mother’s side. Easter is full of bright colors and celebration.

Over the weekend, I had a friend tell me that when you live simply, unexpected happiness surprises you out of nowhere. Sunday, I left everything that I really needed to do, like laundry and some reading homework, aside and jumped in the car with my friend. At that moment, I had no idea where we [...]
