A Mixed Bag Of Goodies
Thanks for checking out my profile page. I am a registered nurse (RN) with approximately four years of experience as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). I enjoy learning new facts on a daily basis. Be sure to read my blog posts and articles, and feel free to comment if something piques your interest.
By TheCommuter - Involuntary celibacy first came into my awareness when I was a student in an LPN-to-RN program back in August 2009. During the evening of August 4th, I watched a news broadcast about a middle-aged man clad in black clothing who walked into a Pittsburgh area LA Fitness health club with a bag full of loaded guns, deliberately entered a busy salsa dance class full of women, and started shooting indiscriminately. The bullets struck 12 women. The man then proceeded to use one of his loaded guns... Read More →
By TheCommuter - How up-to-date are the electronics that you own? I'll go first. My name is ___ and I am a technological hermit (gulp). I do not own an Iphone, Ipad or tablet. My stereo system was manufactured in 2004 or 2005. I purchased my first Android smartphone six months ago, and it is an out-of-date Motorola model from 2010. Prior to getting this phone, I was using a flip phone that I obtained back in 2007 and used for six years. The only reason I 'upgraded' my phone was my accidental discovery of... Read More →
By TheCommuter - Veterans Day, a federal holiday that is celebrated on November 11th of each year, is a time to honor both living and deceased veterans of the armed forces for each and every one of their sacrifices, efforts, and selfless dedication to their country. Veterans Day is a date where we shall observe military veterans for all that they have done for us: many of these men and women have visited hostile foreign nations during deployments, been placed in dangerous situations, and allowed their personal...

By TheCommuter - One of my coworkers, a nurse whom Iíll call Emma, is an average-looking blonde in her mid 30s with an even temperament. Even though she has never married or had children, she still holds out hope for wedlock and kids sometime in the near future. However, a major holdup exists. Emmaís boyfriend, an immature guy in his mid twenties with current legal problems, is not exactly marriage material and does not want to be tied down to the baby carriage anytime soon. In fact, she describes him as a... Read More →
By TheCommuter - Hereís a little demographic background on me. I am a female who was born in the early 1980s and am currently in my early thirties, so my birth year and age would place me at the end of Generation X or the very beginning of Generation Y. The statistics for the available pool of men in my age range are really discouraging, to put it lightly. According to Associated Press, young men are almost twice as likely as young women to still be living with their parents, and less likely to finish... Read More →
By TheCommuter - Yesterday I received a rather curious private message from a person who shall forever remain anonymous. He described himself as a low-income guy in his late twenties, and was seeking my opinion on enrolling in either a pharmacy technician program or a course that trains students to become medical assistants. I responded, "I completed a medical assistant program 12 years ago when I was 19 years old and was never able to land a job with my training." My response was also unfavorable toward... Read More →
By TheCommuter - Close your eyes and imagine for a moment that you are John, a 43-year-old married father of three teenaged children. After an interesting career in the United States Army that had spanned approximately 20 years, John was able to retire with full benefits at the age of 38. He eventually settled in a Midwestern state and secured full-time employment as a maintenance mechanic at a local power plant. In addition, his 37-year-old wife, Abby, is an administrative assistant at the same workplace.... Read More →
By TheCommuter - Are you attempting to shed some extra pounds as you grapple with a fierce addiction to sweets? Are you in search of a diet plan that will allow you to eat an abundance of sweet foods and simple carbohydrates while you lose this excess weight? Let me introduce you to the Fruitarian diet! Fruitarianism can be regarded as a particular spinoff of veganism, and the Fruitarian diet has been in existence for centuries. An individual who follows the Fruitarian diet is basically limited to consuming... Read More →
