Hello world, I am Nicole Von Laven. I earned BA in Psychology. I am ALMOST FINISHED earning my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I live a pretty active life; working, cohabiting with my partner, spending as much time as possible with our families, continuing my education, managing my levels as an insulin dependent diabetic (Type 1), and trying to have somewhat of a social life as well. I am an aunt and love my three nephews and my niece with all of my heart. Other than my future, there are a few other very important things in my life that I thoroughly enjoy and wanted to share with the world. If you know me, you know I am awful at initiating contact and mainly calling to keep in touch. My partner (being a IT nerd – a good connotation) set me up with this blog to share my life with those I am bad at keeping up with, and anyone else who is interested in my life or any of the categories I post about.
Lately I have been on an inward journey which has been hard and exhausting but so thrilling and freeing at the same time. I am beginning a journal/book about this process, so be on the lookout for posts in regard to this journey on my ‘Ponderings’ page.
