It's Monday! Making a Social Life

So I've been out of nursing school for several months now. During nursing school I had basically no social life. I studied and in my spare time I read, watched TV shows or spent time with my family. That's all I really had time for while I was in nursing school. Now that I'm out of nursing school I've realized that I've forgotten how to have a social life. So slowly but surely I've been working on building relationships with friends, purposely taking the time to hang out with people and going to events. For an introvert that isn't always easy but I have actually really enjoyed being able to spend more time with people. Sure I have my patients to talk to but there's a world of difference between talking to my patient while changing their depends and talking with a friend over coffee.... trust me.

Anyways.... reading.

  1. Hey, maybe you can teach me or share some tips. ;-)

    God bless!

  2. I want to read something by Lois Lowry soon. Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. The introvert friend thing is certainly tough. I try to purposefully schedule quiet time and social time each week. At the least, I make sure I talk to a friend or two on the phone!

    I love your re-reads. I am hoping to get my son to read the Swiss Family Robinson. I think he will enjoy it!

    1. It is tough and sometimes takes more effort than I'm willing to use. :(

  4. Good luck with your socializing and reading.

    Have a good rest of the week.
