If you've ever wanted to tell me you hate me, today would be the day to do it...

... because I just applied to nursing school & Sarah Palin reads my blog, so, really, nothing's going to bring me down today.

Yes, you read that correctly, I sent off my application to nursing school with the click of a button a few hours ago & now I will be fuh-reaking out for the rest of eternity. Or until my letter comes, which ever happens first.

The application was kind of funny & I was worried I'd answer the question wrong. It's a Christian university and some things the application asked were, "Do you except Jesus Christ as your Savior?" "Do you agree to refrain from immoral activities, such as cheating and lying?" and of course I said yes to both of those, without hesitating. But I got a little tripped up on the question about refraining from premarital sex & substance abuse. Obviously I've thus far committed to abstinence, but I've never been in love, so that's been easy. What if I fall in love within the next 2 years? I'd love to save myself for marriage, but I'm no fool, temptation is always looming. And define substance abuse. Clearly I enjoy a good drink (0r 10), but I know how to stop. Is binge drinking on occasion considered substance abuse?

You can see my dilemma, no?

I said, "Yes, I agree to refrain from such illicit activities" (not a direct quote) because I'm pretty sure that's the answer they were looking for, and, in my opinion, I do agree with this mindset and live my life that way, but damn them if they've turned me into a liar.

Oh, and Sarah Palin reads my blog. True story. A couple months ago I had a hit on here from someone (Sarah Palin) at "Alaskan State Government" and the other day I had a hit from someone (Sarah Palin) in Wasilla, Alaska. Now, I'm no genius, but obviously there is only one logical explanation for said hits: Sarah Palin reads my blog. And, come on, why wouldn't she?

So go now, send me hate mail if you want, because today is a day where I won't come guns a blazin' if you do.

Hope your day has been all gumdrops and moon beams like mine.

Just wanted to say "hi"! And wow, I can't believe those questions are on nursing school application. I get annoyed when Craig's catholic high school insurance won't pay for birth control. haha! Sounds like you answered perfectly.

I hope you're applying to a certain Florida school, just in case the nimrods don't accept you.

Well, of course Sarah Palin reads your blog! Did you see the episode of her show where she had to painfully endure a camping experience with Kate Gosselin and her brood of spoiled brats??!!

Sarah needed some humor in her life so she obviously turned to your blog for some much-needed laughter! I totally get it!

Congrats on making the decision about nursing school! Do you feel as if a huge weight has lifted from your shoulders??

BTW, last night, I was laying in bed (or is it lying in bed...whatever) and Dateline was on. Of course I couldn't stop laughing listening to KM reporting on the story. Esp the part where he said, in his creepy voice, "Could things get any worse? Ohhhhhh, why yes....they could" or something like that. It was just so downright freakin creepy the way he said it. Couldn't help but think of you!

Congrats on applying to nursing school! I am sure it feels great to have it finally done and sent out. I cannot wait to check that off my list.

Not sure if this exactly constitutes as hate mail... Guess it will depend if your a democrat or republican! I fucking hate Palin! The bitch talks like she's chewing her face!!!!

I've had hits on my blog from Wasilla, too!!!! Not kidding!!!!! Sarah Palin LOVES us :-) Unfortunately I hate her, but if she reads my blog that's cool!! hahaha p.s. Everybody likes a good drink now and then. Or 10. You will especially need drinks when you start school!!!!

:) Yeah getting that application out. Hope you sent one to NY too, just in case. We have some great schools this way.

Sarah probably did a search of her name, & since you've talked about her before - she found you. Great that she has come back for more! That is great. Congrats on that too (until you show up in her new book)

Congrats on applying to nursing school, doll. Best/worst decision I have ever made. ;-)
As far as those applications questions, what is up with that?!? I go to a secular college so we didn't have to do a moral inventory upon application. Good thing too because I didn't start drinking [or having 'immoral relationships'] until I started nursing school.

It's just me :) said...

I'm late on this one but I HAD to stop by and say WOO HOO!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!! YAY!!!!! (and really? What is up with those questions?!?!?)
