  2. Kim Kardashian got a huge engagement ring and got divorced in 72 days. Hope that puts things in perspective.

    When I graduate I'll be 30

    I'm 32 and very singe. I used to get crazy-lonely knowing that everyone I knew was married with or without kids so I went crazy-dating. I cringe when I look at my past hehe. Being single is one chapter in your life. Enjoy while it lasts.
  4. I know I'm supposed to remain neutral with these kinds of life changing posts but as one female to another, you deserve better. No woman is a bad mother for wanting to better herself. NONE. Going to college is the best thing you could ever do for your family.

    Are you happy being single?

    Yes. On some days or nights, it can get lonely but overall, I'm happy to be single. I've heard enough horror stories about failed relationships and/or marriages that I'm more cautious with who I end up with. I'd rather be single than be in a relationship or marriage full of drama.

    What is the best hand lotion?

    I love lotion and I'm oddly addicted to hand lotions, hand creams, hand salves, hand butter, etc. I've used a lot of them and the best for nursing practice (for me, anyway) is Gold Bond. Despite numerous hand-washing, you can still feel its effect on your hands.

    Make up that stays on so i look "fresh"

    May I suggest using a primer for your base? MAC has one.
  8. I have a similar story. A guy friend told me once that when he woke up in the ICU, the first person he saw was this haggard, frumpy-looking nurse. It wasn't a very encouraging sight. I understand that nursing is more than just a pretty face but it helps to look presentable for your patients. In that regard, I use the following in order: -Olay moisturizer spf 15 -Mary Kay Liquid Foundation -Loreal powder -NARS for my blush -MAC for my eye primer -Chanel for my eye shadow -Loreal mascara I keep my look simple and natural.
  9. which is why I suggested eating more fruits and veggies whenever she's stressed out.
  10. I completely understand this desire to be thin. I often struggle with weight issues, too. Luckily, this year, I lost around 8-10 lbs and I did it not by wanting to be thin. I did it by wanting to do something like by taking a dance class 3-4x a week, or going for a brisk walk around the park. Don't think about being skinny. Just enjoy the activity and the weight will come off!
  11. @threadstarter: It's okay to eat when you're stressed. It's called emotional eating. The question is what do you eat? As my MD states, "abuse the fruits and veggies" so when you are stresse,d make sure that you have a bag of oranges, slices of apples, carrot sticks or walnuts within reach. As for exercise, it depends on how busy you're unit is. If you work med-surg, you'll do a lot of cardio with all that walking around. If you work in ICU, you do a lot of lifting (of your patients) so make that your upper body workout :D And if your workload doesn't give you that amount of exercise, 30 minutes of plain walking in a treadmill should be enough. Wow I sound like a PSA ad hehehe Good luck!
