Well, the student year has already started, I’m all settled in but I still the painful process of researching housing options. Isn’t that crazy that you have to fight for the apartment you have never seen 5-6 months in advance?! Well, I got lucky to find my apartment and that was the best decision I could have made. I live in Neil Building; it’s student residential hall, located in South Campus. I absolutely love my place for the following reasons.
Firstly, my apartment is fully furnished!!! Yes!! Can you imagine a tiny girl moving or assembling the furniture alone?! I wouldn’t be able to do that, that’s why my main search criteria was to find a furnished place. The studio has everything that person may need: desk, drawers, closet, shelves, bed and fully equipped kitchen. The only thing you need for move-in process is to move in with your luggage, that’s it!
Secondly, there is a huge cafeteria Marketplace on the first floor of the building. They have numerous eating options, starting from salads and sandwiches and ending with pasta and soups! Btw, their broccoli and cheese soup is amazing! You may want to check it out! What I like the most is that residents of Neil Building have separate entrance to the café; you have to swipe your BuckID and you are already there. When it rains on weekend and I don’t feel like going out, I can just go down and use the magic door to access the food paradise.
Thirdly, the staff at Neil Building is very helpful and friendly. For example, when I moved in, I had the problem with air-conditioning system. I filled in the report online and my issue was solved the next day. So they are very quick to react on residents’ needs. I also like the fact that I don’t have to worry about being at home when my package arrives, because reception receives all the packages and then you get an email saying that your package is ready for pick-up!

...”We are moving to California,” my father said. “This is a great opportunity for a better education.” My father had just arrived at our apartment in Queens, New York City from a long business trip. When he told me, I did not know what to think. This must have been the third time already, having to move from Korea to Poland and back, and then from Korea to New York right after. Though I felt uncomfortable moving frequently, it made me learn to avoid attachments to my surroundings. I felt like I had nothing to hold on to anymore; it seemed like I would have to leave everything behind again. Despite the challenges, these events also brought me to a positive realization of what is important in my life, one being my family. When we lived in New York, my family and I did not have much; however, as a family we were there for each other. My mother, sister, brother and I settled in a single bedroom apartment, while my father was away for business. My uncles, cousins and grandparents lived in the same neighborhood, so we had many gatherings, which drew us all close together. Since my relatives were so involved in my life, I inevitably gained support and guidance from them, which helped me find the second important thing to hold on to, my dream. As I increasingly recognized and valued the support of my family, I gained motivation and focus toward my dream of becoming a nurse. My mother and grandfather especially influenced me. My mother has been a nurse for many years; vividly......

Both of these degrees allow a registered nurse to take the same exam for licensure. The level of education has proven that those who have completed a higher degree earn more money and have more opportunity for advancement. The registered nurse by some may be viewed more as a trade and not a profession, if those nurses have completed the level of associate degree. There is action being and been taken by other countries to make it mandatory for registered nurses to receive their baccalaureate in order to become licensed and practice.

Moving Away

...By now, I’ve moved four times in my life. I am still in contact with the friends that I’ve made all over the world. There is a first time for everything though, and the first time I moved to a different country was an extremely nerve-wracking experience for me. I was only eight years old, and one day, my mom announced that we would be moving to China for a few years. I didn’t know what life would be like there; I just knew we would be flying to a place far away. At the time, I didn’t understand the concept of having to fit in with a new community, so my only concern was not being able to see my friends in Vancouver ever again. I had had the same friends for my entire life, and I wasn’t prepared to leave them. I was only in the third grade, but nevertheless, I cared about my friends very much and was extremely reluctant to cut off all connections with them. When I left, I cried a river, and I was as miserable as a cat standing alone in the rain. Then, I was introduced to my first cellphone. I hadn’t known that there was a way to keep in contact with someone when they were on the other side of the world. This was a huge surprise to me, and I was ecstatic. Immediately, I asked my mom to contact my friends, my phone wouldn’t stop dancing on the table from all the vibrations. I couldn’t help but feel extremely foolish for thinking I would be leaving everything back in Vancouver forever. Now, when I move to a different place, I’m not as worried that I would be losing my friends...

Moving Away

...shock. I had never really thought of that topic before for a very long time. It never occurred to me, because I knew I was not the only one who was very pleased with our lives there. My only question I had for my parents were, “Where would we move too?” The response was not one I would have ever guessed. They told us to think about if we were to all move to Washington D.C! That name immediately triggered my interest, and I had to know more. It was a very open discussion, and my parent’s didn’t push for any answer. So the choice was completely up to us. We started to list all of the pros and cons of moving, and everything was leaning towards moving. Some of the great things that we talked about were the attractions. Smithsonian’s, The White House, The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial, etc. Talking for a couple of hours, we went for it. It was official, we were moving in a couple of months. Looking back on it I didn’t realize how fast those few months would actually go by. I feel as if I didn’t get to do all of the remaining things I wish I could have done before leaving everything behind. That concept “leaving everything behind”, never dawned on me either. Eventually as eager as I was at the time, that time came to when we were finally leaving. We said our final goodbyes to our distant family prior to this day, for one exception. Our sister had decided not to come with us because she had just started her life on her own. Our family was very understanding,......

He looked at me and smiling he said: “You would get to this baggage claim number tomorrow if you keep walking, young lady”.
