    Leeloo Goes AWOL

    Leeloo Goes AWOL

    Click To Play Quicktime Video Click To Play Flash Video The other night, Leeloo, our parrot, decided to take in a look around the neighborhood. Somehow, she hitched a ride out on an unsuspecting/distracted shoulder. This caused us one of the most frightening nights we have had. Seeing that the temperature was to drop below 40, we were sure our little tropical girl would have a tough night. So we put out our posters out around the neighborhood and went to bed fearing the worst. The next morning brought the best possible news. Leeloo foun her way onto the terrace of a family nearby. They found our "lost"posters while preparing to put their "found" posters out and called us right away. A miracle we are very grateful for! Welcome home, Leeloo!

    Click To Play Quicktime Click To Play Flash Ok, it's a little long. Getting back into the videoblogging groove. I have seen pigeons around town do this flying sun dance before and have always wanted to catch it. While running some errands on a beautiful day yesterday, I finally did. Also some random driving footage on a glorious fall day. Pink Floyd, "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" from the Ummagumma album provides the perfect spacey soundtrack.

    First Year Nurse

    First Year Nurse

    Click To Play Quicktime Click To Play Flash Reflections on my first year. Still a work in progress. Feeling much more confident now, though. Still no regrets on my chosen path. Funny how my last two reflections posts echo each other. Variations on a theme. I did not notice this until after I made the post and looked back at my last one.

It's decent, not bad...

The other review regarding "freedom of speech" is inaccurate, if you're going to provide criticism it should be done constructively (help out instead of just insult).

Video podcasting the daily life of a "nurse to be" is a great idea! It's made in a creative, delicate, and well organized manner, making it easy to watch. However, it would be even better if it could concentrate more on nursing (the interview with the senior lady was interesting) and a little less on non-nursing related subjects so as to reflect to the title of this podcast. Keep up the good work, make it interesting! ;-)

crazy... she needs a nurse

Besides the fact that she must do this podcast at like three in the morning after a long days work, she can not speak english. She constantly repeats herself and really never talks about nursing. Take a nap and try again

Clinical

Hey! I am a nursing student as well, and I am always checking to see if there's anything interesting - nursing related here on itunes..... I never seem to find much! I keep telling myself I should do something, but as a nursing student - there's no time!!

I enjoyed listening to your clinical experience! Kudos to you & good luck!
