Forum: 30 Minutes to Spend 5,000 in One Store ~ Go!!
Hey Christi,

Like Kyle mentioned, teebee brought up a really interesting idea! I had no idea that was a thing that was available at B&N, and would love to put money towards my loans!

I also like the ideas of going to a home improvement store. I might go to Target to buy paint, furniture, and decorations to spruce up my home. Maybe also stock up on some necessities. I always end up spending more money than I intend to, so I'm sure that $5000 would disappear haha.

Great topic!

Have a great day!

Hey Amanda,

I guess my straightforward answer is that success is accomplishing my goals. If I try really hard and earnestly do my best, I feel a great feeling of accomplishment if I meet my goals.

Success is also making steps towards a big goal. It's like every step is a small win/ victory. I guess I view achievements stepwise, and even the act of pushing yourself to succeed is something to be proud of. Sometimes all it takes is earnest effort to get the ball rolling, to get you where you want to be.

Good topic!

Have a great day!

Hey slynch8686,

This is a great, but challenging idea. Here goes...

On the 2nd day of CNET, the competition gave to me --- some replies on my post, and a chance to win a scholarship for rookies.


To be honest, I had to look up how the song went (structure wise) and almost typed and a partridge in a pear tree haha.

Fun topic!

Have a great day!

Forum: Do you like being in the spotlight?
Hey E,

It sounds like I may be similar to you in that regard. I am pretty quiet until you get to know me, and I'm actually pretty silly and like to make people happy/relaxed. Many times people are like, you were so quiet when I met you, what happened?! Haha.

I still get uncomfortable under the spotlight.

I can work well with groups because I tend to know how to work with/motivate individuals to work towards a common goal. However I'm usually behind the scenes making things work, haha. I guess that makes me a quiet leader (and sometimes that is also the unwitting leader).

Good topic!

Have a great day!

Subject: What are you looking forward to next week?

Forum: What are you looking forward to next week?
Good morning, CNET!

What are you looking forward to next week?


Next week for me is a week I never thought would come... I take my last final of my program and then graduate from Nursing school!

To sum up my nursing school experience, I was attending a highly acclaimed school, that was a 4 year BSN (Bachelor's of Science in Nursing). Two years into the program, we are abruptly told it is closing, and we have to find another school. This came out of left field for the students AND teachers.

I end up at my current school, but due to it being a brand new branch of a school in another city (actively undergoing construction), we become a guinea pig class. Many hiijinks later, our faculty from my previous school start coming in, and the school becomes exponentially better.

I cried, I was elated, I was devastated, I was worried, I was hopeful, I was relieved... I felt so many things on this journey and have learned so much.

Now, I'm ready for my next step!


What about you guys?

Have a great day!

Forum: The most important thing you learned
Hey Teebee!

Loved reading about your experiences and how they affected you and your life path. I loved that I've had that experience in various classes too, and that's shaped my worldview.

I guess the most important thing I've learned from my nursing degree is how to provide safe competent care, knowing what to do for patients depending on their diagnosis and what to assess for before and after medication administration. What red flags require immediate intervention for patients, and which things to call the doctor on.

Of course, as I start to work on the unit next year as a registered nurse, I'll learn so much more, and a lot of the things that don't apply to my unit and population will fade away while the things that do will stick, and I'll gain more understanding and knowledge.

I have a previous degree in Psychology and it helped me immensely in nursing school. Not only because I had already taken developmental and abnormal psychology, but also because therapeutic communication is a huge part of working with patients. What to say and not to say, when to be quiet and just listen, when to try to prompt for more information. You can have a good working relationship with a patient -- or not-- based on how you communicate with them.

I have had amazing teachers in nursing school, who I look to as mentors as they are very intelligent, well educated, amazing women and nurses. I can say I grew to love what I'll do partly due to their influence. Thank you for what you do for your students! I think teachers are amazing.

Great topic!

Have a great day!

Forum: What is your favourite dad joke?
Hey pancake!

My husband and my brother in law are constantly making dad jokes. I'm easily amused so I usually laugh, but some I definitely regret encouraging haha! My sister just rolls her eyes at my BIL at this point (but she also smiles). I love your cow joke!

Ones off the top of my head are:

1. What do you call cheese that isn't yours?

Nacho Cheese

2. Wanna hear a joke about construction?

I'm still working on it

Funny topic!

Have a great day!

Subject: Re: Should road tests be required to keep your license

Forum: Should road tests be required to keep your license
Hey Beth,

I'm always secretly wishing for self-driving car technology to be perfected, haha. Drivers where I live are very fast and loose. On a busy commute, you are sure to be tailgated, cut off, and get close to being clipped or in a fenderbender because of how reckless some drivers are. Also, use your blinkers people! Rant aside, I wonder if these drivers have to be tested again, would they pass?

I agree with the stipulations for what you laid out as criteria for a mandatory driving test by age. I think it's good to take into consideration as you mentioned, normal physiological changes that come with age like hearing and vision loss, and a slower reaction speed, not to mention health conditions as well. I think it is great that people want to stay independent for as long as possible.

I just feel that we need to have some way of reevaluating driving ability of all ages, as you mentioned. Also, it would be good in terms of rules of the road, since many are very specific to certain situations so are not necessarily common knowledge.

I feel that safe, competent driving needs to be what we are testing for. Some people drive as though they are invincible, when motor vehicle crashes, life-altering injuries, and death are all possible in a car if someone isn't careful. Our driving (as in everyone on the road's driving) determines how safe the roads are, barring external factors like ice or road hazards.

Great topic!

Have a great day!

Hey Jon!

Good luck on your finals! I'm sure you'll do great!

You picked some great qualities to love about yourself! I think loyalty is a great characteristic, and I find it important too. I always try to be there for my friends and family, and help them with what they need.

I love my strong willpower, and that I am very resilient. Although I've definitely cried if things seem to be turning out badly, in the end, I never give up, and accomplish my goals.

I also love that I am artistic, and can create art that makes myself and others happy.

Great topic!

Have a great day!
