"To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To hope is to risk pain.
To try is to risk failure,
But risk must be taken,
Because the greatest hazard in life
Is to risk nothing."
--Leo Buscaglia

So I went to DC last weekend to spend Valentine's Day with Matt, but also to look at potential places to live. And we actually found a place! And put a bid down on it! And it got accepted! So, if everything with the financing checks out, we will be moving into the next place…

    So, as you may or may not know, I work as a night shift peds nurse.  That being said I often have to sleep during the day, which means I often have to take things to help me fall asleep during the daytime given that it's slightly more difficult to do so while the sun…

    I think it's the dysfunctional in me that's causing me to feel this way.  It's basically telling me I should just scrap everything and start over.  And I just want to start over so badly.  Everything has gone so very wrong this past year; I feel so sublimated, so stifled...I don't know what else ...

    So over the past year I have been debating on whether or not to quit my job and go travel nursing for the rest of the time that Matt is finishing up his dissertation. Well he's done with it now, but he didn't finish in time to graduate this past spring and so he wasn't…
