NOW ENTERING NEWT
Back into the Fire
Well I've done it! I now get to put "BSN" (Bachelors of nursing) and "PHN" (Public Health Nurse) after my name!.
My next trick is finishing my Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at
The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth.
Thank goodness for online classes and a beloved who enjoys road trips. And I'm happy
that the Duluth offleash dog park people will also accept our Minneapolis liscenses
Oh well, my life is NOT boring.
I am not going to question your opinions. I am not going to meddle with your belief. I am not going to dictate
to you mine. All that I say is, examine, inquire. Look into the nature of things. Search out the grounds of your
opinions, the for and the against. Know why you believe, understand what you believe, and possess a reason for
the faith that is in you.
TEMPORARILY PERMANENT WARNING:
I am doing much intermittant tinkering to this site, including
adding much weird stuff (mostly links) and a LOT of renaming (and reorganizing) of files. If you find broken links, please e-mail me and
I'll know to fix/improve it.
Thank you for your co-operation
Good Karma for Relatively Cheap!
I'll be attempting the National Association for Mental Illness (NAMI) walk again this year
Click here to donate to a pretty neat cause and I have checked: this
year you CAN donate just a dollar.
Looking for Research!:
As part of my doctoral work in Psychiatric/Mental Health nursing, I am putting together a research project on
the phenomena of hearing voices. What I find interesting is that while Western culture defines this as a mental
illness, and has a lousy rate of "cure", other cultures define it as a spiritual occurance, and have better success. Not
at just getting rid of the voices, but at finding ways to deal with them. If you would like to here more, or offer
a suggestion, please use the link at the bottom of this page to e-mail me.
Welcome to one of the more opinionated spots on the net.
This site exists because I like to write, rant, and save rants and interesting bits that
I run into. In other words, I'm an packrat, an opinionated one, and one of my favorite things to collect is
information. Over the years in playing with the internet, I find that saving something online, on a web site,
means I can access it from anywhere. Of course so can anyone else. Which is how you got here. Why are you here,
However, for all practical purposes, the real reason that this site exists as an actual web site at all is that
I'm a total scrooge, and I could get it for free.
"The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it
but what he becomes by it."
General subjects that I've liked, hated or obsessed about:
- Rants just on general principles Haiku section is newest
- My blog not that interesting, but I actually have one
- Gardening Ideas
- Buffy the vampire slayer
- Craft. As in Witch
- Science related links (think hard sciences)
- Some ideas about writing
- OA-HOW ; a 12-step group relating to food addiction
- Suicide if done wrong, really messes things up in process
- General Links aka stuff that doesn't have it's own category yet
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and
well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!
