A Bus Rider: The Airport Lady

I was walking by the bus stop when I first saw her.  She was standing next to a line of neatly aligned suitcases of all sorts of shapes and colors.  She smiled as I walked by her.  Her smile was inviting enough & I asked her what she was doing with so many suitcases.  She kept smiling and said that she was going to go to the airport and see her son.  She was headed the right direction & I didn’t really question her….although…

There is no way she brought all of those suitcases on her own, there must have been at least 7 of those things by her…unless they were empty.  I smiled and I said “oh how nice.”  I didn’t really know what else to say- I told her to have a safe trip.

She kept on smiling and nodded her head.

The following day I saw her again….this time it was at a different bus stop- that bus was NOT going towards the airport.

…I wonder………..





The First Day of June

And it begins.  Starting today I will study my brains out.
“Why are you studying?! You’re in the middle of summer break!?”
Well, I will study because I am determined to get the best grade in the class.  Is that too high of an aim? of course not, I out of all people can do it & so I shall.
I probably haven’t updated you all enough, but I have been applying to hospital jobs, and let me tell you that I have had ZERO calls for an interview. My resume kicked butt too.  Although, English has never been my strong subject and while answering questions in the application I probably did not express myself accurately.  Anyhow, tomorrow I will be applying for the Student Tech position at the VA.  I was part of the VA Nursing Cohort and I fell in love with that population…I guess you can say that I am a sucker for heroes =)

I love them so much,  I guess every time I see a vet I think of my grandpa Eugene Dale O’Brien, he was in the Vietnam War and he later died of MS (multiple sclerosis).  My dad was also in the military.  He wasn’t in the USA army, but he did serve in the Mexican army…So yes, I love soldiers– and if I can have ANY job at the VA I would be very happy.


*Wish me luck guys*
