Today marks my brother’s second volleyball game. I really like that his season landed on my spring break. I have been ecstatic about his games, but mostly his successes.

See, I see myself in my brother. We have similar stature, but he is just me on crack. He is smarter, more good looking, athletic, and more fun. Pretty much, a better me.

One thing that really got me from today was when he commented on what one of his teammates said today. His teammate had 18 kills on their first game and he mentioned how he would like to get as many kills for this game. My brother told him: It doesn’t matter how many kills you got for that game. Do what it takes to win for this game.

DO WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN.
DO WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED.
LOOK BACK ON YOUR STATS LATER BUT MAKE SURE YOU WIN THAT GAME.

I cannot emphasize how important this applies to me. Do what it takes to finish nursing school Ralph. You know you’re going to pass. You know you’re good enough. JUST DO WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN.

Life’s equilibrium: Nursing school
 First day back to school after a three day weekend. And man, I am burnt. I ditched my community nursing class to go study for another class but this isn’t working out too well as I am blogging. I don’t wanna talk about school. I just wanna talk about my weekend.  I spent time with my awesome girlfriend who hates me right now. Why? Because I went to a party on Sunday and I was supposed to pick her up from work and I got too drunk so I didn’t get to pick her up. I feel like there isn’t a book in my life that has the most perfect chapter where somehow I become a hero and save someone’s life (climax) and then I end up being rewarded for being the coolest smartest human being (falling action) and I happily become a story told to generations (conclusion). Really bad example (lol) but I just happened to have a miscommunication with one of my close friends and I practically begged him to be friends with me again. Long story short, I wrote out 28 reasons why we should remain friends, wrapped it with a twix(he loves twix) with a paper wrapper, and numbered them. He kept distancing himself for many reasons so I went to his house, dropped off my gift (with a heartfelt card and a Valentine’s day balloon [very fitting btw]) and left it by the bushes by his front yard. He appreciated it so I think we are okay for now.
Well where am I going with this? I just feel like life is never perfect. Never wants you to be static. Life wants us to be dynamic characters. Life changes us in different ways. I can be happy with my girlfriend and have a complicated relationship with my friends or vice versa. All I know is life is always trying to find some type of equilibrium (something I learned throughout nursing school). Even if you have good intentions, life can still affect your equilibrium, but only to do good in the end. The outcome is always beneficial - being that it can either make you grow or make you fumble but still kick you until you reach the end zone.
Nursing school sucks. It is hard. But this is life’s way of equalizing my decisions and pushing me to the right path. Now back to studying.

1. It starts with a decision – a decision to live your own life, and be your own person. That is, respect and value who you are. Believe in your personal choices and decisions. Don’t live your life to please somebody else.

2. Try and grasp the fact that we’re all very different and we all want…
