That's right, I am a fake graduate. I walked even though I still have school until December! At BYU they do not hold graduation in December, so our choice was either to walk early this August or walk late after we graduate next April. So, we decided to do it early and get it all over with :). It was fun! My parents came out for the occasion (as always I was thrilled to see them!), Brian got off work, and we all celebrated my fake graduation together! I am excited to be a real graduate in a few months... but then I'll have to actually grow up and get a real job. At least I'll finally get paid for the work I do in the hospitals!
I am super excited for my time in the NICU next semester. I talked with my preceptor and she seems really awesome. She told me that her favorite thing about being a nurse is teaching new nurses and students.... that is a relief to hear! So many times I feel like a burden when I go to clinicals because we have to follow our nurses around everywhere and some of them just do not appreciate that! But, it sounds like my preceptor is going to be awesome! Yeah for NICU!

|When we walked across the stage they put a big picture of us up on the screen and our favorite quote. My favorite quote of the day was "The only true gift is a portion of yourself" - Ralph Waldo Emerson|
|it was SO HOT outside! I was happy to play in the stream!|
