P-P-Pollyface has a P-P-P-Plan

The other day I got to play that dancing game for the kinect at a friend's house, and it is SO FUN. But now I think everything in a Lady Gaga way, which is why the title of this entry is full of P-P-P's like P-P-P-Pokerface. I also have been saying scu-ruh-huh-huh-hubs instead of scrubs.

Anway, the point is I have a Plan. Remember how I said I needed to get my butt into school to be a nurse so that I don't have to work this hard for this little money for the rest of my life? Well, I'm registered.

First I'm going to finally go get my CNA Certification, which will get me a (tiny) raise at my current job, and make me qualified to work in a Skilled Nursing Facility if I decide to leave my current job for a different place. I'll also be qualified to work in a hospital but that's more of a pipe dream; most CNA's would like to work in one, but pretty much every CNA works in long term care instead.

Secondly, I did my admission to our local Community College for fall quarter of 2011 to start doing my prereqs. Yeah buddy! I'll keep working while I'm in school, of course, so I'll probably just do one class per quarter. We'll see. I need to get good grades in them so I can be admitted to that baccelaureate program I want to get into to convert my BA into a BSN. So if I want to be a Straight-A Polly, I should probably make sure I'm also Has Time To Sleep Polly.

Look at me, I'm bettering myself! Not buttering myself. Maybe if I buttered myself, I could join the Haus Of Gaga. But buttering myself wouldn't be vegan. Or pleasant.


  1. Sounds good! Wishing you the best of luck! You never know about the hospital thing. I worked as a CNA in an ER, and it was fantastic. They trained me to draw blood, and there was not a ton of poop cleaning up! Lots and lots of vomit and urine, but not so much poop :)

  2. Yay!!! I'm happy for you Pollyanna. :)
    And you are quite correct. Buttering yourself is not, in fact, pleasant. I mean, I don't know personally but I cringe when I put on shea butter so I could only imagine how the unsalted variety would feel.

  3. Way to go Polly..practically perfect in every way! As for butter....hmmmm...used to churn it, and I think it's better to apply to your insides than your out...unless it's your supervisor and you are looking for a raise. :-)

  4. I just stumbled upon your blog and I love it so far! Good luck with your studies! I'm sure you will do great!
