Pride first, then the crash, but humility is precursor to honor.
Proverbs 18:12 MSG
The stuck-up fall flat on their faces, but down-to-earth people stand firm.
Proverbs 11:2 MSG
Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work.
Colossians 3:23-24 MSG
How well God must like you— you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College. Instead you thrill to God ’s Word.
Psalm 1:1-2 MSG

A brief description of my blog:
A blog dedicated to the life and times of an introverted student. Mainly about being a “Scrubs” student with a goal to be a Nurse Practitioner, I started writing this blog when I realized that no one else chronicled their journey through nursing programs, applications and classes. I wanted to learn about how the program is and what the classes were like but the only response I got was that, “it’s really hard and competitive.” So Scrubs and Stuff was born! But because life is not all about academics, I added in other “stuff” too, like book reviews, Bible verses, feelings, trips and travels, and anything else that I happen to do as well.
I started blogging almost a year ago when I started the last portion of my nursing pre-requisites; especially when I started classes to be a Nursing Assistant. Since then, I have met wonderful people on my blog site like Ally, Kim, and Aurora. Their prayers, comments and hope helped me through any and all the troubles and I hope that you check out there blogs too!
Advice for a new blogger:
- Always comment back to people who comment on your blog. Maybe it takes you a day or two, but always comment back. Show your readers that you appreciate the time it took for them to read your work, and comment to you about it. It is common courtesy and respect and oh so important!
- Write about something you are interested about. Don’t write something to see how many “likes and comments” you can get. Write about your passion, about something genuinely interesting. Your writing automatically becomes more fluid and more thought provoking. It’s similar to how you should live your life, by being yourself instead of saying and doing things to become “cool” or “popular”.
