When I was packing for my time in KS I made the choice to bring only one non-school book with me, The Complete Works of Shakespeare.
I set a goal to go through and read the plays that I haven't yet. Since that day, I've change the goal slightly: I will read, listen, or watch the plays I hadn't yet.

I have no problem fund raising for other people. Give me someone trying to raise money for a trip, or medical bills, or whatever, and I have no problem going up to anyone and talking them into donating something
But turn the tables and asking for myself? I become petrified. Why would anyone want to give me
So here I am, screwing up my courage and putting myself out there...
I need $2,000 to attend the Midwifery Today conference. This will cover the conference fee, a hotel room, travel costs, and food. If you want to help out, stop by my Go Fund Me
page or feel free to signal boost.
Forget everything I said in the last post - I'M IN!!!
Kansas here I come!
(also, if anyone knows of somebody in the Leavenworth area that would be willing to trade a spare room for housework and cooking, please point them in my direction.)
Since my real life is too board to post about...

SO I guess I'm updating once a month now?
The apprenticeship continues to go well; I've been moving through the skill testing portion and am taking on more responsibility - I even helped with a catch (it was hour 26 and we didn't think mom was ready to push so I was left alone, then I started to see the head and was stuck in a spot where I couldn't move)!
One of the reasons I haven't been spend much time on LJ is because this program has a tuition, which I've been trading for yard work. It works out to 13 hours a week that I have to fit in around prenatals and births, so my free time has gone down to almost zero.
However... you could help me get back some of that free time! I've posted a crowd-funding campaign to help raise the cost of one year of apprenticeship
I'm also trying to keep up with a video blog about my time in Utah.
After talking with my course coordinator and several other students, and a LOT of praying, I think my best course of action is to switch over to independent study. This will give me more time to finish the course work, but I will change from a Texas Agency candidate to a Portfolio-Evaluated-Process (or PEP) student in regards to the NARM exam (the big exam that gets you the final licensing approval).
So more work on the practical side but more time to do it; while getting less stress on the educational side - I'd call that a fair trade.
It also means that the restrictions fora preceptor are loosened, so I'm going to start calling midwives I may have had to pass over before.
Hey there LJ, I'm still alive!
There's not much to report, school and birth center and housework and more school and a few births and more school.
I've got a blog strictly for posting about apprenticeship/midwifery/birth type things at: http://yankeemidwife.wordpress.com
and I've done two posts in the last weeks.
The learning curve of the new apprenticeship/birth center/family/town has left me almost zero time for anything else. I haven't even thought about watching TV in over a week - although I have kept up on The LBD and I have thoughts on the vilification of Caroline (not a new thing in JA adaptions/fanfic) and the tap dance the writers are doing trying to tie everything up, but I have no time to lay these thoughts out in a coherent manner.
So that's my new life - very monotone, very focused, very lonely.
I have not been this invested in the Austen fandom in ages, and since I no longer have the Pond to post my thoughts and feelings in you all get the brunt of my fangirling.
In the book Lydia never gets hurt. Sure she comes awfully close to ruin, but in the end she comes out perfectly fine and even boasts of how wonderfully everything happened. "Send my sisters to visit and I shall get them all husbands!" she proclaims.
In the various works of fanfiction that continue to use the Lydia/Wickham subplot, Lydia is bruised but never broken, she leans that she can continue fun in moderation. when you gamble the house always wins; party, but don't take pills from strangers.
In today's episode of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries we see a Lydia who is broken. What is she suppose to learn from this situation? Not to trust? Not to love?
Way to fail, LBD.
I finally heard back from the midwifery practice that I interviewed with.
So this means that I'll be moving to Houston in a few weeks. I have dozens of little details swirling through my brain. I have to get the cruse control fixed on the car, will I really need to bring my thick winter coat, should I try and get my yearly check ups done before I go or should I find a new doctor down there and do it in the fall? I need to get boxes.
Yeah, so that's my new crazy.
I watched Iron Man 1 and 2 on Sunday - wow, in the rush of "OMG! Clint/Natasha 4ever!" I forgot how much I ship Happy/Natale. That whole bit in the car, then his insistence on helping with the attack... he's like a puppy who just wants her to love him. Stargate
So right around Christmas I started watching Stargate: SG1
; I am now halfway through season two and I have questions.
Twice now Teal'c has gone back to his home planet to rescue his wife and son (the second time even bringing them back to Earth just to get them away from the BigBad) yet as soon as that
bout (or should I say episode) of danger is over with he sends them back - WHY?!
If BigBad can kidnap and brainwash your son once, what would keep him from doing it again? Really, just bring the family over and move Teal'c into family housing. Hunger Games
I saw a promo still from the new movie and my first thought was "who is that creeper breathing on Katness", then I found out it was Finnick and I was sad. When I read the book I pictured Finnick kind of like LL Cool J, but with a swimmer's build (Annie I thought of as a young Halie Berry, and the old lady who takes her place as the grandma from Mulan
). Les Miserables
If you haven't seen it yet, wait for the DVD.( Spoilers and ranting this way...Collapse )
