Beginning My New Life as a Nurse

I finally entered nursing school on June 15th at Pacific Lutheran University.  This summer is very intense, and often very difficult considering the load of studies that we take on.  So far Pathophysiology has been almost an insurmountable mountain to climb, but I just took my exam and I realize that it is not insurmountable.

I am 52 years old in a graduate program where the average person is about 26 years old. I am struggling, but I believe that I have finally made a step in the right direction.  My only regret is I am sorry that it took me so long to make this decision.

Twenty Year Old Woman Starts Her Own Comic Convention

I am working with a young woman, aged 20, who used her own money to start a comic convention here in Kent, WA.  At her tender age she is already the author of a trilogy of fantasy books which she self-published while going to college.  She tirelessly advertised to attract vendors, and she brought some very talented people into this convention.  I am truly amazed at how carefully she planned each detail.

On this eve of KentCon, I cannot wait to see how she pulls this off.  I am not just sitting back and watching this event, I am also fully involved as a volunteer.  I am also an author and I will be sitting at the table selling her books, my husband’s books, and of course, my books.  I will also be doing a reading of my books and possibly some other authors gathered there as a type of preview to the book.

The Monday following KentCon, she will be jetting off to Switzerland, and may even write a travel blog about what she encounters there during her travels. This young lady also happens to be my daughter.
