    The First Month

    I’ve officially spent over a full month in a different city alone. Outside of the first week that my mom was able to spend with me, I haven’t seen my friends or family in A MONTH. Of course FaceTime is a beautiful thing, texting is easy (although I suck at it,) and they’re always just a call a way. Although it’s an interesting concept that when I wake up for work, I already have a “Goodnight” text from my dad? As if it wasn’t hard enough keeping in contact with everyone back home while I was on night shift, now throw in a 3 hour difference just to spice things…

    Finally.

    I guess it’s about time I get this blog up & running again, since its sole purpose is to keep people up to date with my travel nurse adventures. And yes, I am finally in Seattle for my first contract. What a glorious feeling. I left Indiana on January 25th, a Friday night.

I won’t spend AS much time backpacking that way, but that’s okay. I am going to get a well rounded experience and mark off five parks from my bucket list. I. Am. So. Stoked. Conveniently all five parks are within an easy…

    A Not Traveling Nurse

    I have a desire for this to become an iconic travel blog; allowing me to travel full time and explore literally everything this world has to offer just sounds ideal… However, that is not realistic. Because my other passion? Working in healthcare and helping people (specifically my kids and their families.) Which of course requires a semi-stable location. I say ‘semi-stable’ because fortunately my chosen career path has an option to merge the two together: travel nursing. As of now, I hope to start travel nursing next year, which is terrifying and so exciting. I cannot wait to move out west and be within short driving distances of grand National…
