    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Unfortunate victims in Trump's red herring attention-diverting ploy that also served to appease his defense contractor donors/billionaire friends!

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    After all that's been said and done, I'm still try to wrap my head around how Trump could have any supporters left? He has proven beyond any doubt that he is an ill-informed, irrational, vindictive, petulant, child man, as well as being an unpatriotic draft dodger. Add to that is the fact that his policies seem to only benefit him, his criminal friends, and the 1%. What am I missing?

    What I miss?

    Wow-yes I would miss living in such close proximity to Yellowstone NP also. What a great way to unwind/decompress!

    What I miss?

    Not to be nostalgic or sappy but thought it might be fun to us to recall something(s) we miss from another time (childhood, early adulthood, last week...)? Me? I miss some aspects of childhood; like when a new, cheap toy was bliss and brought complete entertainment for a week or so. Or, when $1.25 at the candy store bought a paper sack full of new and different sweets. Maybe a simpler time when technology didn't so completely dominate our lives. You?

    Icebreaker #2

    I thought it might be fun to ask everyone if they had any major personal goals/aspirations/dreams for 2020? Any vacations planned? Personally, this year I would like to work on getting my financial house in better order and start doubling down on our retirement savings. As far as vacations, we have a trip planned to Costa Rica at the end of the month. What about you all?

    Hello All Icebreaker

    I just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself, so to speak. I am 53 y.o. (54 this year) man, a graduate of a 3-year nursing diploma program, (as well as a BSN) and have been an RN for 28 years. I live in the Pacific Northwest and am currently employed as a staff nurse in General Surgery. I am a regular contributor on the other side of AN, but recently stumbled into this area (Breakroom) and actually much prefer its friendly, rather 'homey and welcoming atmosphere. I love travel, reading, camping, backpacking, hiking, food, craft beer and dream of retirement everyday-. Looking forward to chatting with you all:)

    Older nurses chasing the carrot

    I have been an RN for almost 28 years. My parents were also nurses and I pretty much grew up in and around hospitals. Having worked continuously since age seventeen though (I will be 54 this year), it feels like I've been 'plowing' this field since the dawn of time and I'm tired. I've worked in several nursing specialties (including travel) and nursing has been good to me overall. At this juncture of my life, I am blessed to have a well paying union job, but at minimum, must work, another ten years. Ten more years! I dream of retirement every single day and just don't know if I can make it until then. I don't dream of exotic vacations or playing 9 holes of golf everyday, I just want to get off the hamster wheel and have my life back. I'm sooooo tired of changing policies, difficult coworkers, workplace drama, heck, I'm really just tired of going to work (any work), period! Just wondering how other nurses at this stage of life do it? BTW, I'm not depressed (don't need a therapist), have many hobbies, can't cut back hours, don't want to precept or join nursing committees, and don't want to try another job.
