STORY TIME: HOW I GOT INTO NURSING SCHOOL // LETIFFANYSHOW✨

Hello friends 2

Welcome back to my blog ❤

OOF it’s been a crazy two weeks! Nursing school is getting harder and harder and I don’t even want to think about what’s coming up next. But now that I’m reaching the end of “block 2” of my program, I thought I’d talk about how I got into nursing school. You know, before i forget the details and stuff… so let’s get started!

Once I decided that nursing was the right career for me, I started looking into nursing schools. I didn’t even know where to start so I googled “nursing programs” and a bunch of results came out and I was just overwhelmed. A colleague of mine advised me to go out of state for nursing school. (If ya’ll didn’t know, I’m from California). She said that the programs in California are super impacted and she was right. The wait lists were like 2 years long! No thanks, I want to get to nursing school ASAP! So I started thinking of places I would love to go and I thought of Nevada. It’s right next to California and not too far from Los Angeles. Like 5 hours?

Type click search and BAM.

I found a school that I wasn’t even sure was legit. I mean sometimes I come across websites/schools that aren’t really a real school. But I decided to do a little bit more research and I discovered that it was indeed a real school and they had an accelerated BSN program.

Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program: aka second degree nursing program is for those who have completed a undergraduate degree and the required prereqs before enrolling.

I looked around the website to see if it was a program for me and eventually decided to put in my information for “more info”. About a few days later, I got a phone call and lowkey I let it ring. It was an admissions advisor from the school and she ended up leaving me an email telling me that I could call her and if anything, she would try again in a few days. I was nervous and didn’t know what to say. Heck, I didn’t even know if that was the school I wanted to attend. The next time she called, I picked up and I felt so nervous. But the admissions advisor was so easy to talk to! She asked me some questions and got some background about me. She told me everything I wanted to know and answered every question I had about the program. Even though all the information she told me was on the website, it was nice to be informed with information catered to my situation.

She had me send in my unofficial transcript to give me an overview of what I needed to do in order to be eligible to apply. She went through my transcript and told me what prereqs I had left. Turns out, I only needed Anatomy but I needed to get an A to have an eligible GPA. Talk about the pressure… She sent me a list of online anatomy courses I could take. Online courses were essential for me because I was working at the time and online classes are way more flexible. I picked one and rolled with it. (Spoiler alert: I got an A (98.7%) I was so excited!)

The next thing on my list was the The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) exam. It’s an exam used by many schools as an admissions test. I had no idea it existed until my advisor told me to take it. My advisor recommended buying a practice book so I got one from Amazon. Thank goodness for Amazon prime. As soon as it got here, I went ham on that Kaplan book.  I started from the first page and ended with the very last page. (click here for my TEAS tips). I walked into the exam half asleep and 4 hours later, I made it out alive. TBH I forgot how painful it was to sit still for 4 hours in a room with 30 other tired people. Damn.. how did I do it in high school?

Well that was done and the anatomy course was done… what’s next?

The application cycle finally opened up and my advisor sent me the link with a detailed set of instructions. I forgot how draining school applications were. Even with the set of instructions, I was so confused and lost. Eventually all went well and I finally got my application done. One of the applications was through the universal application called NursingCas and the other was a supplemental application through the school. Hit that SUBMIT button and fingers crossed. Wait, no.. I still had to submit my TEAS scores and order official transcripts. That was so confusing as well. I think I was out of the school application system for too long. I don’t know, something about this application was so confusing. Through many nights of loud sighing and silent crying, I finally sent in my TEAS scores and transcripts.

Now it was the waiting game, which was accompanied with many sleepless nights. I think it was about a week later that I received an email saying that I got an interview! LIKE WHAT?! ME? AN INTERVIEW? Now it was loud yelling that gave my mom an heart attack cause I swear she thought I was dying. Sorry mom… But yes! I got an interview and that was probably one of the best days ever along with my other …best day evers… it was a very good day..okay?

I went ham on research on possible nursing school interview questions. I took notes and wrote answers to the most common interview questions. I was not going to let this opportunity go to waste.

Then comes the exciting but dreadful interview. OHH that was one heck of an interview but I’ll save the details for another blog post. This one’s getting a bit long. Thank you so much if you’re still with me. But damn, those questions they asked were wayyy different from the questions I prepared for. When I got out of my interview, I wasn’t sure if I was even going to see that school ever again. I blew it, I messed up. Sad life. Loud sigh…

Don’t you hate it when you leave an interview and you start replaying the questions and then you think of ways you could have answered? I do. And I couldn’t sleep for days because of it. But eventually I had to tell myself that whatever happens, happens and it’s not the end of the world. I was going to find out in about two weeks and if I didn’t get in, I could just try again. There’s always a way!

Two weeks go by and I’m driving to the post office and suddenly I get a text from my friend (who I went to the interview with). “OMG DID YOU CHECK YOUR EMAIL?” I’m sitting there like, holy crap. HOLY CRAP. So I rush home within speed limit because I drive like a responsible grandma. I ran through the door, grabbed my computer and started yelling nervously. My dads looking at me like, I can’t believe I raised this kid. LOL But eventually I said, ADMISSIONS LETTERS ARE OUT. I opened my email and there it was, the school’s decision email. It said, “Congratulations, You have been accepted to blahblahblah” OMG. ME? REALLY? I’m freaking going to nursing school!

And yep, that’s how I got into nursing school. Or I guess the the admissions process. My main point is, if you have the opportunity to talk to an admissions advisor, I highly recommend it, They are there to help you and guide you through the admissions process. It was especially helpful because I had no idea what I was doing. The admission advisors literally hold your hand until the first day of classes and I am so thankful for her. Even after being admitted and committing to the school, she still calls me to check up on my progress. I finally met her at the interviews and it was nerve wrecking. She finally met the weirdo she’s been contacting through email and phone. HEH.

Story time over, here are my TIPS with applying for nursing school!

  • Research lots and lots of schools! Even though I only applied to one (which now I think about was kind of risky and dumb) I still looked at many programs. There are actually a lot of roads that lead to an R.N. There’s got to be one that fits your needs!
  • Be patient! It takes a lot of patience when researching nursing schools. I was really overwhelmed at time and it got to a point where if I saw another nursing school requirements page, I’d go crazy. One step at a time!
  • Make a table of requirements! Researching schools and their requirements can get really repetitive and tiring. Many schools require different requirements so I recommend making an excel sheet or something to organize the requirements. If I remember correctly, some schools required microbiology lab!
  • Talk to an admissions counselor! If a counselor is available, you should talk to one! Requirements get really confusing at times, especially when the requirement sounds like the class you took but you’re not sure if it is the one they want. Ya feel? As I mentioned before, I sent my counselor my unofficial transcript and she told me what I had left for requirements. Super helpful! Or else, I would have been wasting time trying to take classes I already fulfilled.
  • Standardized test! Check with the school you want to apply to see what kind of standardized tests they want. Some require the TEAS, and some require other exams like the HESI. So check with the school to make sure you’re taking the right exam.

And that is pretty much it! This was a long post but thank you so so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to like, comment and hit the follow button to be notified when I post! Do you have any questions? Let me know down below and I’ll try to answer them to my best ability!

TRAVEL DIARY: CRUISING AROUND ALASKA // LETIFFANYSHOW✨

hello-friends-e1502697417909.jpg

Welcome back to my blog 

I spent two weeks cruising around Alaska and saw some of the prettiest things nature has to offer. This 14 day cruise set sail from Long Beach, California and it was the first time this ship went to Alaska and back in one piece. All aboard the Carnival Miracle, we’re going on a journey!

We stopped at 6 ports: Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point/ Hoona, Juneau, cruised around Glacier Bay, Skagway, and Sitka. We also made a stop in Vancouver, B.C.! WOO CANADA! 🇨🇦

Take a look at my trip through my camera lens and I’ll meet you on the other side!

3-2-1 GO!

IMG_0453

About meIMG_2182IMG_8863IMG_8861IMG_8862IMG_0455IMG_2291IMG_0449

Alaska is such a beautiful place and it never fails to amaze me. I was surprised by how small these cities were. Like the population of Ketchikan is 8208 people and Hoonah has a population of 745 people! In comparison, Los Angeles has a population of 4 million people! That size difference though..

There are a LOT of fine jewelry stores in Alaska. I’d say 60% of the stores there sold fine jewelry. If that’s your thing, I heard there’s pretty good deals on fine jewelry in Alaska. Since I went in September, it was the end of tourist season and the shops were about to close down until next year. That means…huge clearance sales!! The Alaskan T-shirt company was having a 50% off everything sale so I went a bit crazy there. Don’t let the name fool you, they sell way more than just t-shirts!

TIFF TIP: Look for coupon books. They’re free! These coupon books have hella deals on souvenirs! These books are usually located at the welcome centers and sometimes in front of a souvenir store. The coupon book we found had coupons for Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway, which are the bigger cities.

Carnival offered many shore excursions but I don’t think you have to do shore excursions in order to have fun. The prices range from $ to $$$$ but we stuck with the ones that were more affordable. The more expensive ones were usually whale watching or helicopter rides, which weren’t really appealing to us. We bought shore excursion tickets for 4 of the 6 port of calls.  We mainly did the ones that gave you an overall tour of the city to learn more about the cities in Alaska. On the days we didn’t do shore excursions, we just walked around and explored the city on our own.

The ship also made a stop at Vancouver, B.C. It was almost like I never left the States because it looked like the U.S. I got to try Tim Hortons, which is a Canadian fast food chain known for it’s coffee and donuts. I got a ice vanilla latte and a chocolate chip muffin. I thought the coffee was pretty good and the muffin I got was delicious! Vancouver kind reminds me of downtown LA where the driving is crazy and there’s cars everywhere. We had a limited amount of time in this big city so I’d love to go back one day and fully explore what it has to offer.

The ship itself was really fun. Carnival cruise lines calls themselves the fun ship! There were so many activities planned that we were pretty much occupied throughout the days at sea. I went to my first art auction and learned so much about the art world. There was an opportunity to guess how many N’s were hidden in the painting and I won! The prize was an art piece. How cool is that?! I also attended many lectures that varied from fitness and how to live an healthier lifestyle to just a lecture about food. There were also cooking demonstrations by the onboard executive chef and I won a raffle to taste the food he cooked. IT WAS DELICIOUS!! …and awkward because literally everyone is watching you eat. There are so many things to do on the ship that you’ll definitely never be bored.

If anything, go up to the Lido deck buffet and pig out 🐷😂. You can find me where the food is!

cruising-tips-e1505978278397.jpg

Thinking of going on a cruise? Here are my tips!

  1. Bring a highlighter! Sounds weird right? But they deliver a schedule of events every night to your room so that you can plan out what events you want to go to. A highlighter would have been nice to make the events I like pop out.
  2. Pack some shower flip flops! I don’t know if it’s weird but I wore flip flops in the shower and around my room. I mean you don’t know who’s nasty lil feet have been around that room and even though they clean it, yikes. Better safe than sorry!!
  3. Bring some workout clothes! My ship had a nice gym on board and it was nice to work off some of the free ice cream I was eating like everyday. OH and the french fries.. I love french fries ❤
  4. Coupon books! Like I mentioned before, definitely lookout for these coupon books. They’ll save you some money which can add up especially when you’re shopping for a lot of people.
  5. Take advantage of the free classes! My cruise ship always offered ballroom dance classes but I was too much of a chicken to try it. But I think ballroom dancing would be useful one day or something to know. There were also seminars that range from topics like increasing your metabolism to intro to photography.
  6. Raffles! Keep your eye out for raffles! They’re always giving away free stuff. All you have to do is show up, put your entry in, and hope they pick yours! I won a couple raffles. Even though its just little things, it’s still exciting to see who wins.
  7. Be fearless! You’ll never see these people ever again so why not try everything? I lowkey wish I auditioned for lip sync battle or did those ballroom dances. Maybe next time…

I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse of Alaska. I prefer going on cruises than Chinese tours because you don’t really have a specified wake up call. Plus, you don’t have to pack up your belongings every night and drag your luggage to the tour bus. It’s nice to just chill out by the pool and look at the ocean. The ocean made me feel like there’s so much out there and it gave me hope that whatever I’m going through will resolve in time and everything will be okay.

As always, thank you so so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed reading about my journey through Alaska. I could go on and on about it but this post would go on forever. If you have any questions about anything, leave a comment below and I’ll try my best to answer it… 🙂

Shine bright, peace out.✌

SH*T EVERY STUDENT NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT // LETIFFANYSHOW ✨

hello-friends-2-e1502697216384.jpg

Welcome back to my blog 

Today, I am back with a post about apps you may or may not know about! I know when I was in college, these apps really helped me get through the year. Best of luck with the new school year and lets get started!

apps-e1503546100470.jpg

Good Reader// $4.99// If you prefer PDF textbooks over paper textbooks, then good reader is a wonderful app for you! It allows you to read and highlight important information. You can even draw from the tip of your finger.

Notability// $9.99// This app is great if you love taking notes on your tablet. You can change up the “paper” style and write directly onto the document using a stylus. I mainly used this app for physics and it worked great to do practice problems and draw out physics diagrams.

IMG_0447.PNGIMG_0444.PNG

Spotify// Free// If you don’t know what spotify is, don’t worry, I didn’t discover it until late freshman year of college. Spotify is free and it allows you to listen to music on your computer, tablet, and/or phone. You can search any artist and make playlists to share with your friends. You can also upgrade to premium and listen to ad-free music, listen offline (like on your phone), and get better sound quality…according to them.

IMG_0445.PNG
A look into one of my Spotify playlists! You can follow me on Spotify @letiffanyshow

StudyBlue// Free// This app is great if you are always on the go but you gotta study. Those of you who take public transportation to campus would definitely benefit from something like this. You can create, study and share your flashcards for free. I love that you can customize your flashcards using audio and images. It also tracks your progress and you can set a reminder that it’s time to study/review your material.

Duolingo// Free// Duolingo is awesome. It is a free app where you can learn different languages on your smart device. I use mine to enhance and practice my Spanish. Now there are 23 languages you can learn, such as French, German, Danish, Vietnamese, Irish, and of course, English. You can learn a new language from the palm of your hand (and its a great time passer on the toilet 🚽 haha!)

IMG_0446.PNG
I’m not far into the progress because I haven’t used it in a while but it’s a fun app!

Venmo// Free// This app isn’t a study app but it is really useful in college. You link your debit card to your venmo account and you are able to transfer money to your friends with a push of a button. Be careful tho, make sure you are aware of how much money is in your account. But this app is really useful especially when you split purchases with your friends or housemates.

DaisyDisk// $9.99// If your computer is running out of space and you have no idea why, DaisyDisk can help you with that. Although it was $10 for the app, I immediately thought it was worth it when I started using it. This is an app for OS X that analyzes your hard disk drive and helps you easily clear unwanted things. I love it especially because it breaks down what’s in the “other” portion of your hard drive. I don’t know about you but that “other” section is the reason why my laptop space is full.

Screen Shot 2017-07-30 at 12.41.05 PM.png
Welcome to my hard drive disk! This is what the app looks like from the inside.

♥ Clutch Prep // here

This website saved my arse in organic chemistry 1 and 2. It’s a free website you can sign up for that provides video guides that follow your college textbooks! They offer mostly science courses but also some math courses and accounting.

♥ Cheap textbooks

↠ Bigwords.com // here

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 10.44.54 PM.png

My biggest tip for saving money in college is, DO NOT BUY BOOKS FROM YOUR CAMPUS BOOKSTORE!! Sorry campus bookstores but y’all overpriced. Going into college, my brother showed me this website. Copy and paste the ISBN of your textbook and this website will generate the cheapest option for you! If you want to rent the textbook, you can change the settings to find the cheapest rent option available for your book! Happy bargaining!

not-a-fan.jpg

↠ Abesbooks// here and Albris// here

These two websites often have coupon codes that work on textbooks! So make sure to check google for some coupon codes before ordering! Sometimes it’s not a lot but saving a little money is better than nothing.

♥ Fun and easy way to make flyers/infographics/graphics

↠Canva.com// here

If you are in a club or in greek life, you may have to make flyers for events. This is where canva comes in handy. You can easily make a free account and start designing your flyer. Most of the designs are free but if you want a fancy design, you will have to pay for it.

♥ Cute desktop wallpapers

↠Design love fest // here

Dress up your tech using cute desktop wallpapers! Design love fest has some of the most aesthetically pleasing desktop wallpapers I’ve ever seen. New ones are constantly released, which allows m\e (and you) to change up our desktop background! Below are some of my favs with the artist’s name listed!

NEXT DESTINATION: LASH PARADISE // LETIFFANYSHOW

hello-there-e1502696898600.jpgWelcome back to my blog 

I don’t know what it is about mascara packaging but they always claim extraordinary things. The before and after pictures make it look like your eyelashes will go from:

 eyelashes GIF eyelashes GIF

 

 

TO

 

 

↑↑↑I’d love it if my eyelashes ended up like that! ↑↑↑

Recently, I’ve seen reviews for the L’OREAL Voluminous Lash Paradise around YouTube and the interwebs. After seeing their results, I knew I had to try it out myself. But the struggle was real! This mascara was sold out at every Target/ulta near me but I finally found it at a random Target in Henderson, NV.

FINALLY.

They only had the waterproof version so today, I will be reviewing the L’OREAL Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara! You can get it for about $8.99 to $9.99 depending where you purchase it. I got mine for $8.99 at Target!

Lash Paradise 2.png
Look at this pretty pink packaging! Love it!

The waterproof version comes in two shades:

  • Black
  • Blackest black

L’oreal describes this mascara as voluptuous volume, intense length, full lash fringe, and feathery soft.  There are 200+ bristles to catch every lash for a dramatic volumizing effect. There is also no flaking, no smudging, and no clumping.

Lash Paradise 1.png
This mascara comes in black and blackest black! Buy it here!

A LITTLE BIO ABOUT MY LASHES

I have pretty stubborn lashes that don’t want to keep curled. They’ll curl and then a few hours later, back to no curl. They’re also very short so without mascara, you can’t even tell I have eyelashes!

HOW I USE IT

I curl my eyelashes using my Muji eyelash curler. Then I apply one coat of mascara onto my lashes! I start from the base of my eyelashes and work my way up in a zigzag motion. (I hope that makes sense). I add a few more coats until I am satisfied about how my eyelashes look.

FIRST IMPRESSION

I am using the color blackest black. This is a wet formula. But for me, the wet formula makes it so much easier to apply to my lashes. It dries fairly quick – quicker than most of my mascaras. When I blinked, the mascara didn’t transfer onto my undereyes.

Lash Paradise 3.png
YIKES! Welcome to my face! Here’s a close up of how the mascara looks on my eyelashes.

Smell: yes–floraly smell. I’m not a very big fan of the smell. I don’t understand why they put scents on things that go on your eye.

Length (✓): DAMN. SON. There was definitely a change in length.

Volume (✓): I loved the volume it gave my lashes!

Feathery Soft (✓): It is very lightweight and stays on all day.

No flaking (✓)

No smudging (✓): I yawn a lot throughout the day and my eyes get watery. Mascaras usually start smudging and then I get these dark smudges under my eyes. This mascara didn’t do that! I yawned all I wanted and nothing. YAY.

No clumping (✓): It did not clump like some of my other mascaras. Easy application and no mess!

After long hours of wearing this mascara, my eyelashes were still curled and in place. Removal is kind of a pain but it is waterproof. Just use some eye makeup remover and you should be fine!

This is definitely a drugstore mascara worth trying. Have you gotten your hands on this mascara? Let me know what you think!

and…leave a comment below of… your favorite mascara!

As always, thank you so so much for stopping by! Like, comment, stay around if you’d like! Subscribe to my blog and I’ll see you guys next week!

Shine bright, peace out.✌

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

HELLOOO Friends! 

Ever since I started watching YouTube beauty gurus however long ago, I’ve seen many of them use the Clarisonic Mia 1 and 2. These beauty gurus pretty much did a great job convincing me that I needed one. I mean come on, the box itself says it cleanses 6x better than hands alone. UH YES I NEED THAT. But, that hefty price tag of $169 was what kept me away from purchasing one.

Around Mother’s Day time, the Clarisonic website had a promotion where if you bought their new foundation brush attachment, you’d get $40 off any brush of your choice. I did some calculating and even with the $35 foundation brush attachment, it was still cheaper than the Clarisonic alone. After some long thinking, I finally did it. I put in my credit card information, pressed submit order, and a week later… BAAM it was at my front door. (it was like Christmas day!! thanks mailman!)

The Mia 2 retails for $169.00. It is said to be have 2 speed facial sonic cleansing (delicate and universal). It comes with a sensitive brush head, trial size cleanser, travel case, and a 2 year warranty. It has a 1 minute pulsing T-Timer but to be honest, sometimes even after the 1 minute timer, I turn it back on cause my face don’t feel clean yet!

I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and this is what I thought about the Clarisonic Mia 2:

Pros:  My face does feels a lot cleaner than it used to be. To be honest, I thought the QVC and beauty guru people were exaggerating to make me want to buy it (and yes it worked..unfortunately..haha!) but my face does feel a lot softer! I did see the pores on my face shrink a little bit but not completely. When I apply makeup such as foundation, it seemed to go on a lot smoother. Even without makeup, my face looks a lot clearer and smoother…like a baby’s butt!

Cons: Like an electric tooth brush, you have to replace the brush head every 3 months. Now, these clarisonic brush heads are not cheap. They retail for about $27 each and $44 for pack of two. I read a lot of reviews where people love their Clarisonic but some have stopped using it because they didn’t want to buy the expensive brush head (totally understandable). Heh good thing I have a bunch of Ulta reward points saved up but its still an investment to think about.

Conclusion: I’ve only been using speed 1, which is “delicate” because someone recommended that as a new user, you should start with the lower speed. Maybe as I start using the “universal” speed, my skin will improve even more. Hmm..but, we’ll see. I’ll keep ya’ll updated. 🙂 Although it made my skin feel smoother, I don’t know if my skin feels 6x cleaner like it claims on the box…maybe 1x? 2x? I don’t think it’s necessary to have this device to achieve nice, clean skin. Pero like, I like it. I’m glad I finally made this purchase! YAY SKINCARE!

As always, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Make sure to like, comment, ask questions… er look around my blog if you’d like..laugh at my old posts like I do.. heheh OKAY BYE!

UPDATE: Reflecting on this college stuff

Hello friends! I’mmmm baaacccckkkk!!! Sorry for being MIA but ya girl has graduated from cawledge! ERRR back it up a bit, I graduated in December 2016, but I finally got to walk across the grand stage this past weekend. I was trying so hard to not trip..

IMG_1388
Graduated UC Merced with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology!

College was definitely an experience but I grew the most during those past 4.5 years. Merced is one of those towns in the middle of nowhere that no one talks about. I, myself, had no idea what Merced was until I got into the school. When I first got there as a freshman, I was definitely confused. There were cows everywhere.. agriculture everywhere.. there was even a farm with camels down the street from my school. CAMELS. like what?! And there was literally nothing to do in Merced. I wanted to go home. But I’m glad I didn’t. I met my best friends there, I learned to be more appreciative of the things I had because there were people who didn’t have much, I learned what a heartbreak felt like, and I experienced what it felt like to have people leave you when you needed them the most. But it all made me who I am today because I am stronger.

The hardest part about college was failing. It was the feeling of hopelessness when you spent hours studying for an exam and yet, you fail. Those days were the worst. I’m very open about my failures so yes, I failed 3 classes in college and withdrew from one. Withdrawing from a class made me graduate late, which was a bummer cause I didn’t get to graduate with my best friends. But the point is, I never gave up. Yes, I cried about it and completely felt like shit about it. But I got back up on my feet and tried again. I kept trying and here I am with this snazzy diploma that will bring me to my next destination. So what I’m trying to say is, don’t give up. Keep your eye on the prize and keep going. I never even considered changing my emphasis or my major. I was determined to graduate with the major I entered college in because ultimately, that was the direction I wanted to go.

…I miss college… cherish these four years or however long it will take you because you’ll only be 18-22 years old once. I miss my best friends and dreading class everyday. Now I just dread work haha!

You can do it! Believe in yourself. Remember to tell yourself that and to the ones you love. Stay positive and everything will be okay! 🙂 ❤

Shine bright, peace out.
