Another Year

Another year and another bday! This year has really flown by, yeah, I know the month is not over, but jeez Well, like I wrote another bday also. Today I spent the day with my mother, and fam. I feel so happy and grateful to have them in my life. I share bday with my little niece, so a birthday cake was purchased and my fam headed to my sister's home. Everyone ate, sang bday song to my niece and I and had cake. Next was present time, my niece loved her presents. Makes me happy she did. She even wore the bday shirt I made her last year.
Just feeling extremely grateful for my family.

Dinner with the Fam.

So today my sister in law called and asked if I wanted to join her, my brother and family out to the movies and dinner. Of course, I said yes. Maybe because we sometimes go daysss with out seeing each other and hey, I just felt like going out since I have not been out in a while. My brother's friend, and nephew picked me up, and we met my brother and sis in law at the restaurant. I noticed my brother arrive with a gift. My sister in law's bday is coming up soon, so I thought to myself, he had decided to go ahead and gift her an early bday present.

Frank Iero & the Patience Rise Against Deftones

Hi!!!! people. A week ago today I got to see Frank & the Patience in my city! Along with Thrice, Rise Against and Deftones. Guys this lineup is AWESOME! I can honestly say that this has been my first concert where I have actually liked all the bands. Because you know sometimes you go to a show for the headliner and have to wait until they take the stage. Have to wait until all the opening bands are done, sometimes I come across some new up and coming bands whose sets I liked and others not so much. but anyways, like I was saying I loved all four bands.

So a Birthday and an AWOL concert

So this passed sunday was my birthday! yay! Happy Bday to me again! ( like five days later). So that day was pretty good. My family visited, and I received gifts, and had two cakes. To be honest, the gifts were not big or expensive. But I truly appreciate all of them, and the fact that my 'family' showed up in the first place. See, my family is pretty weird, I think. We are not the types to like really show how we feel. So having them show up, congratulate me and with presents, well to be honest I was surprised. But I am really appreciative of the fact that they did.

complete fail

so if you read my other blogs you might know that I have been working towards my phlebotomy certification. I went to school, finished externship and the last thing to do was take my certification test. well, today was the day. and damn it, it did not go as planned. I had studied, but not enough because at the end of the test, the screen read Fail. I showed up to the site. they take your picture, check your i.d. to make sure it is really you and even scan your palms. I was let into a room where there were other people already taking their tests.

omg, today I had my first tv casting audition! I was nervous but I think I did do well. it was for my college. so I drove down to the site. signed in and waited. it was not long. I was scheduled for the morning, but since I did not read the email on time I did miss my time slot. I texted the person who told me about the casting and she said I could go on ahead and still show up. after signing in they did take a picture. I noticed that the people around me were like "real" actors. they just seemed more prepared and they arrived with their portfolios.

hey guys! (anyone out there) so yeah, I have finally completed my three week externship. I know, three weeks, not long. but oh my gosh, it seemed like an eternity. I did complete my one hundred sticks that I had to do. more than half were like finger sticks and the rest were arm sticks. I actually finished my one hundred on Thursday but I still had to go in today to finish my two hundred hours. my supervisor actually did let me leave early since there were no patients scheduled in the afternoon.

aahhh!!!! this externship!!!!

Hi everyone, anyone out there. Well, like i last blogged last week, i was going to have an update to how my externship is going. Well, here it goes. The week did go by fast. My first day there i was nervous of course, but i wanted to make the best of it so i decided to just think positively. Well, my externship is at a clinic. It consists of drawing blood, phlebotomy. Thing is, is that i am not really getting the practice, experience i thought i would. Why?
