#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 7

So to further be tinkering with the content of what I post here on Mondays, I think I’m going to just take a single photo and expand on it, instead of just trying to sum up my week altogether…

Aaron and I don’t really go to the movies very often — I’m more of a binge-13-seasons-of-a-TV-show-as-quickly-as-possible kinda girl — but my friends have talked about Split, and I’ve seen people rave about it on social media, so we went to see it.

I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it since we saw it!

Iceland: Blue Lagoon

Ahh, yes, Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, one of the things that drew me to Iceland in the first place.

But, weirdly, one of the things I always forget to talk about when telling stories of my Iceland trip.

#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 5

Y’all, I’ll be real, keeping up a blog post a week has been kind of hard! It’s hard finding time to write through and post everything, being busy with work and school and life things in general. Previously on this blog I’ve been very sporadic at posting. It’s hard for me to get motivated to write at a scheduled time, I would post when the mood struck me. And while I’m not especially looking to monetize my blog or make it my living (because that shit is hard, and as much as I love traveling, I love nursing more than I love blogging), I still want to gain some followers and feel like what I post is WORTH IT, in a way.

Contract #3: Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!

Originally I was going to wait until after my February vacation (and thus, the end of my current contract) to secure my third travel nurse assignment, in hopes of finding some good crisis rates.

But, I get antsy, and I’m a planner, so I’ve already signed contract #3 about a month and a half in advance! Continue reading Contract #3: Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!

#Maddie2017Challenge: Week 4

This first week back home from vacation has not been the greatest, but that’s to be expected after spending a week in the most amazing country on Earth. Continue reading #Maddie2017Challenge: Week 4
