    Probably more so for me than for you guys.

    Today I graduated with my Family Nurse Practitioner degree. It’s hard to articulate the feeling. Pursuing this degree came with a lot of tough decisions;

    I had to leave Alaska and move to Texas. At the time that I’d moved, my girlfriend had only been home for about 8 months after we’d spent a year apart for her to go to Nursing school.

    I also had to leave my job as a civilian ER nurse at a military base.

    There were a lot of times I wanted to quit. There were a lot of times I thought I would fail, and there were a lot of times I thought that I wouldn’t be able to fulfill the requirements for the degree (getting OBGYN hours was a nightmare and my school was very little help finding placement.). I lost touch with a lot of people, academics are not my strength so I really buried my head, mostly unintentionally.

    It still doesn’t quite settled in, but I’ve gotten emotional a few times over it.

    The spot has now seen me through three degrees. I wish I were more active. You’re all twats, and I appreciate you.

    Big ups, bro; that's amazing. And thanks for whoever you took care of at whatever military base too – all the best to you and yours, well earned.

    First, I want to say a very earnest congratulations.

    Second, I want to post a very facetious gif or YouTube clip of Josh Koscheck putting down male nurses.

    And third, one more very genuine congratulations.

    Are you going to be able to give us medical advice? Dr. Deezy won’t return my pm of the picture of the thing on balls that I sent him.
