Luis~ you are hysterical. Water bottles will never be the same. Sorry in advance for the irony, but you are silent but deadly--the smartest New Yorker I've ever met. All I have to say is: Priapism. I will never forget what that word means now.
Crista Jean~a gal who is just cool and fun by nature. You exude positivity, even in the wake of ridiculous instruction. You are so warm. You could teach people how to have fun. You will save lives in the ER, you already do.
Whitney~we missed you so much tonight. You are the fastest test taker I know and I am secretly hoping you don't get into the program this fall so we can have you with us in the winter. You are funny without even trying, and smarter than you could possibly imagine.
Jason~this quarter wasn't the same without you and you were by no means forgotten. You are so gentle and kind. And, probably the best CO around ;-) You were born to be a nurse, you just make everything seem a little bit better. Apply to Everett or I'll never talk to you again!!
Andy~thanks for the tutorials, the endless advice, and the 35minute long bitch sessions on the phone, I can't believe how bright you are, I will be a better nurse just for having known you! I hope you sail around the world and save millions of babies from cholera. I have a 25lb bag of rice and a 48 pack of bottled water because of you, maybe it will save my life--but I doubt it ;-)
Sonny~you're name is no coincidence. You are sunny and so charming and fun to be around--you're magnetic. You will be the nurse people talk about for years after you've helped them. You will make a big impact. I know it.
Sam~you are so thoughtful and kind and fun. You will be the most beautiful bride ever. You're endless energy is responsible for many As over the past couple of quarters. Your energy and spirit are contagious. Thanks for the coffee, banana bread, and flowers. You were meant to take care of people.
Nateja~the little sister I never had. I will miss you every day. You are the silliest, funnest girl I've ever met. You're my little hippy in hipster clothing. I will think of you every time I opt not to microwave Maizey's food and every time I weigh an immunization. Maybe I won't immunize my next baby and maybe I will name her Nateja in honor of you. You are going to crack back like it's nobodies business. Learn the Bradley method and I will come to your office so you can turn my next breech baby. Seriously, the world is better with you in it. If I don't see you before you go to Caly, I will die.
Now, here is to long, lazy summer days, with nothing to do but hanging out with the cutest/silliest baby in the world. Tomorrow I will wake and: a. be sober and b. have nothing to do. I can't wait...
