I’m dropping my calories back down to 1200-1500, (I tried going up to about 1800 a day, and my weight loss stopped) and adding another liter of water to my daily intake. I’ve been stuck, I’ve gotta kick start my metabolism back into gear.

Man drives into Kmart, then tries on some women’s shoes

WAVY Article

A car comes crashing into a Hampton Va Kmart, and the driver was just getting started. Early Saturday morning a loud crash shattered the silence and the front window at a Hampton Kmart. The damage was extensive. The 20-year-old driver is facing several charges, including driving under the influence of drugs. But it doesn’t end there. Police say Bryant Weiford drove through the front window, then got out of his car to try on clothes, perhaps taking shopping to a whole new level. “The guy just drove through the front of the store with a car!” said store employee Jeff Ray. Workers took stock of the mess early Saturday hour after a Kmart store off West Mercury Blvd. had closed. Police say a 1986 Pontiac driven by him crashed into the Kmart. “I heard a loud crash. I thought it was a shelf falling, but then I heard car music and I knew somebody was in here” employee Vernita McClaurin told us. Rey says he confronted Weiford. “When I came over to ask him the first time, he kept walking to the shoe department and he changed his shoes and I said, what are you doing? He said, ‘I’m just having fun’, and I said, ‘Well, I’m calling the police'” “He went on to the women s shoe department and started trying on some women’s shoes” Rey chuckled as he told the story. “Then he went to the sporting goods department, looking for a gun” said McClaurin. “The police said he said he was going on a shooting rampage. Good thing they got him”. Weiford is being held in the Hampton city jail. A spokesperson for Kmart declined to comment.

I wouldn’t want to smell it but I would like to see it in full bloom.

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) _ A rare plant is causing a big stink at Virginia Tech. People are crowding the school’s greenhouse to see and get a whiff of the so-called “corpse flower.” The plant experts say their stinky flower could bloom any minute. It smells like rotting flesh. Once it does bloom, the odor lasts for about eight hours. Curator Debbie Wiley-Vawter says despite the smell, the plant’s a beauty. She says the seven-to-12 foot tall plants have unique, vibrant textures and colors.

This is what the flower looks like.

My nursing programs starts next month. I’m a little nervous and a little excited. I know it’s going to be extreemly hard, but it will be worth it in the end.

I’m trying to get myself ready. I got BLS certified a couple of weeks ago and I’m in the process of getting shots, drug tests, PPD tests, books and supplies. I still need to buy my uniforms which by the way are really UGLY! I am waiting until the last minute to get them because I’m losing weight. If I buy them now they will be too big by the time school starts. I have already bought a stethoscope and bandage scissors but I still need to buy a blood pressure cuff and a few other medical supplies. I still need to buy some nursing shoes too.

The program that I am staring is a LPN program (LVN in some parts of the country) I still have a few of Pre-req’s to finish before I can start the RN program but plan to do that as soon as possible. My LPN program is 16 months long(counting all the breaks). As soon as I finish it I plan to bridge over to the RN program, it should take me an additional 2 to 3 semesters to finish. All together I’m looking at 2 1/2 to 3 years to complete my RN. At least in a year and a half I will be a nurse and can work as a LPN making decent money while I finish up my RN degree.
