I know I say this a lot... and rarely follow through for long... But with this new year looming, I am going to go back to this blog's roots (started almost 7 years ago now!!) and tell you about some of my memories, and particularly memories about my relationships. This is something I have thought… Continue reading Oh My God, Emma! You’re Such a Snob!
A few years ago, I wrote about my grandpa, or Morfar, becoming ill and then some months later, passing away. This time, I write about his widow, my Mormor, passing away. This time it was more unexpected. She was not particularly ill, no more than general normal issues that come with age. I did not… Continue reading Vila I Frid, Mormor
I had a memory pop into my head this morning as I was driving to work. I do not believe it is one I've shared here before, but owing to the fact that this blog is coming up on 7 years old... It may have slipped my mind if I did. Therefore, long term followers… Continue reading The Complete Opposite of Acting
Last night I attended a divorce party for one of the nurses I work with. It was at a pub with good food, drinks, and a mixture of people I knew and/or recognize from work and people I didn't know. It was pleasant... but here's my problem. Something I realized last night... I have this… Continue reading Back in the Day
I packed the kids up into the car and set out to the East coast in a hurry. I had received a call from my mother telling me that my grandfather was dying imminently. As I neared the 16 hour mark of driving (having stopped only briefly every three hours or so for gas and… Continue reading I’ll give you the fucking 83 cents!
I made a discovery while talking to my therapist yesterday. I suppose I just hadn't thought about it before as both topics are separate in my head for the most part. But yesterday, we as we were working on trauma response, as we transitioned from talking about specific memories of Wyatt to specific memories of… Continue reading Somatic Symptoms and Problematic Memories
I've reached a new low... well, rather, high. My weight is at the highest it's ever been and it made itself all the more apparent as a problem while I was on vacation the past couple of weeks. Forget that it wasn't as easy to find souvenir T-shirts in my size... At least they still… Continue reading You Got Any Grapes? Waddle Waddle
Changes are afoot for Emma, Corrections nurse. I figured I best update everyone before I go on with more narratives. I had an opportunity fall into my lap last week. As you know, I've been working as an RN in a correctional setting. I have been working in a county jail for the past 7… Continue reading Changes are afoot for Emma, Corrections nurse.
She was a pretty young lady. Tattoos peeking out from under her clothes, make up well done - eyeliner was winged in a way I could never hope to pull off. Not yet in her orange scrubs that prisoners wore, which was unusual but it was owing to the booking officers being too busy to… Continue reading We Will Take Care of You (a Corrections Nursing Story)

While I am working on some new content, please enjoy some of my older content over the next several days that I have not reblogged before 🙂 (August 10, 2015) I walked out into the courtyard; it was a perfectly sunny Swedish springtime day.

There is a really beautiful trend happening on Tik Tok right now. Yes, yes... I'm an elder millennial and I Tik Tok. I don't wanna hear about it. Anyway, this trend is about telling what things that you do, say, or think came from other people in your life. It is called the mosaic challenge… Continue reading Mosaic of My Life
I should be working on my 10 page research paper... The last big assignment before the end of this semester. That and less than a handful of discussion boards. Just Summer and Autumn semesters left to go to get my BSN. Woo. Feels like it's actually within reach. I am totally procrastinating on this paper… Continue reading Corrections RN
After having posted another post yesterday about a current autobiography I am totally loving and relating to, I figured I'd compile a list of ones I have on my book shelf currently I'd recommend. I'll put links in the captions should anyone want to buy them. At the end, I will post links to the… Continue reading Autobiographies I Love
For those of you that have followed me for awhile, it won't come to any surprise that I have read a new autobiography that I love. Well, ok, this most recent one I've experienced is actually an audiobook I've been listening to on my hour and fifteen minute commutes to and from work. I got… Continue reading This Will Only Hurt A Little
Dane and I are talking again... To an extent. For those of you that have followed me for the past several years, I'm sure you are sighing and rolling your eyes at this point. "What the fuck, Emma," I hear you mutter under your breath. "Just walk away and for fucks' sake stay away." Ok,… Continue reading You and Me, Emma
Glad Sankta Lucias dag, allihopa! Things are going very well in Emma's life these days. I am devoting myself to writing today on a rare day off where I have not many other tasks that need completing... So hopefully I will be able to get a few more narrative posts scheduled for you all. I'd… Continue reading Huge Bag of Gourmet Cheese
Write it down, I'm told. Anything you can remember, just write it down. The thing is you want me to remember, to recall events, to be able to tell you about them - but you fail to understand that these particulars, the particulars I am ashamed of, were not that important to me. Not in… Continue reading I Was A Slut For Sleeping With Him
