Post-Convention & Late Night Thoughts

This past weekend was by far, the best weekend of my life. I spent it with my girlfriend, hung out with my best friend in Pomona, and forged memorable and everlasting (hopefully) friendships with a bunch of amazing student nurses from SDSU. To top it off, I actually learned and took a lot away from attending the convention. On Friday, I attended a four hour resume workshop, which I took advantage of by getting my resume reviewed. An added bonus was that I got to meet a surprisingly nice RN manager (ICU, to boot!) who heads a couple hospitals in NorCal! She complimented me on my resume and interpersonal skills and gave me her business card and contact information and told me to get in touch with her after graduation for a spot in one of her ICUs :D that by itself made me the happiest man on Earth. Although, her hiring situation may be different by the time I graduate in March, I was ecstatic to hear from a RN manager that she wanted me in her ICU! After the resume workshop, I had my resume reviewed again and it was yet another fantastic experience. My resume was reviewed by a really nice lady who also complimented me on the format and content of my resume. She and I put our minds together to improve my resume even more and now I really like it! She made a side note about how if I had already been licensed, she would’ve written a darn letter of recommendation into an ICU residency program on my behalf! Darn it. Haha. Little did I know…that the lady who reviewed my resume was the CEO of the ACNL! Holy. Fucking. Shit. When I found out later, I was sort of star struck. She was a huuuuuge influence in this field of health care and the fact that would even compliment my resume was surprising to me. I’m just a mediocre nursing student! Maybe she was just in a good mood haha.

I’m kinda tired now. I just came home from my flight back from LA and have a ton of work to do tomorrow. I’m gonna leave my summary of the convention off until I’m free again (maybe later in the week). I can’t wait to write it all down. Friday was significant, but nothing compared to Saturday!

On a side note, it feels good to be back. Gotta brush the dust off my writing skills (or not).

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”

The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.

The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly

my muscles stopped functioning 

my whole body just went numb and my eyes closed. 

I have to reblog this. I HAVE TO.

I swear I just went into a coma for a few minutes.

Charles Ramsey is a hero. He doesn’t wear a suit of high-tech armor. He doesn’t wear a cape. He’s just an ordinary guy,living an ordinary life.
Then, he saw a woman asking for help.
And he helped her.
He didn’t walk away.
He didn’t think of himself.
He just helped her.
It took less than a day for someone to make this heroic man into a joke.
As proud as Charles Ramsey makes me to be a human, those people make me ashamed.
No, he doesn’t speak perfectly.
No, he didn’t take the time to fix his hair before he went on camera.
He’s an African American man from an economically depressed neighborhood, city, and state.
And for that, he’s mocked and ridiculed.
It breaks my heart.
Now, in yet another heroic moment Mr. Ramsey’s response to Anderson Cooper’s inquiry about a possible reward Charles has proven he’s truly worthy of the hero mantle.
No, no, no. Bro, I’m a Christian, an American, and just like you. We bleed same blood, put our pants on the same way. It’s just that you got to put that – being a coward, and I don’t want to get in nobody’s business. You got to put that away for a minute…I tell you what you do, give [the reward] to them. Because if folks been following this case since last night, you been following me since last night, you know I got a job anyway. Just went picked it up, paycheck. What that address say? […] 2203 Seymour. Where are them girls living? Right next door to this paycheck. So yes, take that reward and give it to—that little girl[.]
Thank you Charles Ramsey.

Thank you.
