This is my last quarter here at PUC and I am definitely starting to feel summer getting closer. The sunshine keeps me outside on the grass down by the PUC sign or out on the campus mall, attempting to study while I socialize. Only when I have some time, otherwise my schedule is pretty full.

For my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program this quarter, I am doing a mentorship at Child Start Inc. in Napa Valley. My job is to educate preschoolers about health related topics. I am having a blast with these kiddos. We play, we read, and we color! At the same time, it is a challenge to keep them interested in health, so last week I pretended to be sick and sprayed green colored water everywhere to illustrate how germs are spread. The kids all shouted, “Ewwwww.” It was fantastic!

I have also been involved with advertising the charity for this year’s REVO fundraiser (May 19). It is called Love 146 and its mission is to abolish child sex slavery and exploitation. All of the proceeds from the REVO event will go toward this charity. I am very excited to be involved because this is a real issue that many children face around the world. Hopefully, our small part can help make a difference.

As the year is wrapping up, I am faced with oh-so-daunting job applications and interviews. Let me tell you, I had no idea how terrifying it is to be a new graduate RN looking for a job right now. I just keep praying that God will lead me to the right place and I know He will. Although I am excited to graduate and get out into the grown up world, I really want to enjoy my last few weeks of being a college student. So between History class and work I will be playing some Frisbee, going on some hikes, and taking some weekend trips to Berkeley and San Francisco. Then I will be ready to graduate!
