recently decided to go back to school to become a nurse (BSN) after being a freelance (mostly medical) editor for much of my “adult” life. This blog has a lot of nursing/nursing school stuff in it because I spend most of my time on that stuff, but it’s more of a “whatever I feel like writing about” blog. You’ll find geekish discussion of gadgets and technical stuff, feminist rants, and ramblings on whatever I feel like rambling about. In my free time I read a lot (on my iPad mostly), take a lot of photos, and surf the Web looking for interesting but usually complicated ways to get things done. If you want to waste a lot of time trying to figure out how to save time, this blog’s for you!

Any patient mentions are HIPAA-appropriately scrambled. Seriously. Details, time frames, personal characteristics, and usually all three have been utterly obscured, so if you think you recognize a patient, it’s just fortuitous.
(NOTE: I took off the requirement for a name and e-mail address for people who fear the blog police, but be a sport and at least leave a nickname or blog address!)
