- Why I Quit Travel Nursing
Hi! I’m Gelli, and four months ago, I finally hung up my travel shoes. After all the wonderful adventures I’ve experienced because of this gypsy life, I chose to pause the ride and rekindle my love for routine. It was November of 2016 when I started my career as a …more
- On Travel Nursing: Pros And Cons Of Extending A Contract
Right now, I’m on my last week of my first ever travel nursing assignment. It’s been a crazy ride for my career and this blog, I must say. Everything seemed to happen so fast that I missed tracking some important events in this journey. But for now, I’m going to share with you the things I considered when extending my travel nurse contract.
- On travel nursing: How traveling as a couple builds stronger relationships
I don’t want this to be a trend. I don’t want this to be a fad. I want to breathe every day knowing I chose the lifestyle I want. I chose to wander. I want to look back one day and say, “I served my purpose.”

- Hello, January!
Last year has been a bit of a doozy, with an icky election, scandal-plagued Olympics, war in Syria, and the loss of far too many beloved celebrities. We mourned Prince, Bowie, Ali, Leonard, and Merle, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate all the good stuff! Sure, even Willy …more
- Travel Nursing: Exploring Lufkin
Lufkin is 120 miles northeast of Houston, and is considered to be the county seat of Angelina County. It is at the crossroads of East Texas at the intersections of Highways 59 (leading to Houston and Rio Grande Valley) and 69 (leading to Port Arthur and Beaumont). Yesterday after work, …more
- First travel nursing assignment: Deep East Texas
After contemplating on whether to pursue the life on the road, weighing the pros and cons, and foreseeing judgments that will come along our way, we ended up accepting the travel offer. We did it! We actually did it! Applications done. Interviews over. After eight long hours of drive, we’re …more
- 10 Secrets Only Night Nurses Know
There are coffee bags under the linen’s drawer. Spoons and forks are inside somebody’s locker. And there are other little secrets that only night nurses know aside from where to get supplies that are sourced from morning’s haul. If you’re a graveyard nurse, this can be a good laugh for …more
- 25 Things You’ll Be Thankful For By The Time You Turn 25
When I was a little kid, I imagined my 25 year-old self with long, straight hair, makeup caked on my face, and sporting a denim. Don’t judge, I think it’s because of my tita(s) (aka aunts) or other ladies in the apartment where I grew up. I also assumed I’d …more
- Hospital stories: Last things people do before they die
I have a personal theory about painfully ill people on their deathbed. That is, they seem to have a burst of energy right before they die. It’s weird to witness it first-hand because you’re there thinking, is this chronically-ill patient really getting better or is his death just ticking soon? …more
- How stress keeps you up at night
Counting sheep is so overrated. We’ve all done it. And it simply doesn’t work. Reciting alphabet backwards, shutting your eyes off like you’re going to burrow your eyelids into your face, flipping pillows, turning to sides, lying on your stomach, switching position for the nth time— we’ve all done it. …more
