Why I videoblog. Why I watch videoblogs. Why I believe videoblogging can be a powerful force for expanding our perception of communities and individuals and for breaking down stereotypes. It's way too long, I appologize. I talk too slow and too much. I am working on that. I had a lot on my mind. For the nurses: I do discuss why I blog/vlog about my nursing school experiences and i discuss culturally sensitive nursing.

For the folks whose work I used: Those of you whose licenses I was not sure about, I contacted. The folks with a CC share alike license, I just used your footage. I hope that is ok, please contact me if there is a problem and hopefully we can work it out.

WARNING: There is some profanity in this one as part of the "White Guy" sequence. Just to make a point. No, I don't believe that "All White Guys are (expletive deleted)..." Usually when you say ALL X are Y when it comes to people, you are looking for trouble. Usually.

I was finally able to download the whole video. Very insightful, thanks for sharing. I admire people like yourself who step out of the stereotypes that bind them and become the ideal person according to them rather than according to society. I am a 36 year old mother of 2 who left a very high paying job to become a student nurse. I drive a motorcycle, my husband borrows my power tools and I bait my own hook when I fish, but I also look damn fine in high heels. If we ever want to change society then not only do we have to stop imposing prejudice on others but we have to stop imposing them upon ourselves as well. Good on you for all your efforts on both sides.

Well said, Monica. Very, very well said.

..and yes, you are so much more than the sum of your various labels.
