I DID IT, I FINISHED MY FIRST SEMESTER OF
AND I’M STILL ALIVE PEOPLE. NURSING SCHOOL
Oh how I wish I weren’t taking two summer classes (both history pre-reqs I didn’t take yet) that start on Monday!
Oh how I wish I didn’t have to jump in and start a new job (not that I’m complaining that I got the job), it’s just so hard to learn something new when my brain wants to relax because its summer break.
Things I’ll look forward to doing this summer…
Not using my brain in the same capacity as when I’m a student.
Soaking up Facebook time.
Speaking of soaking up…how about soaking up sun rays after being lathered in sun block of course.
READING for fun, fun, fun!
Workout more consistently, and gear up for my next race scheduled for June 3rd.
Playing and talking with my children and hubby.
Deep clean a lot of rooms in my house especially the dreaded bathroom (how embarrassing to admit my house gets the least of my attention).
Hang my sheets out on the line in the backyard (yumm I just love the smell of fresh laundry after being hung outside).
Paint my toenails all different rainbow colors because I can.
Take my border collie to the dog park.
Enjoy my extended family during outings without worrying about the time I should be spending studying.
I love summer!
As I close my blog entry for today I will leave you with a piece of advice given to me from one of my instructors that by next fall I should look into getting a tutor, or a study group with friends because my test scores this semester weren’t so hot and that maybe I should sit in the front row, and google note-taking techniques, and maybe listen better during lecture.
HOLY COW, she made me feel |---| this tall when I heard those comments. I thought I did do well, and okay, so my test scores weren’t great but either were a lot of others, I usually do sit in front, and my note taking I thought was just fine, and can I help that other students want to talk to me during class?? I try to tell them to pipe down so I can hear everything but I guess I should be harsher on my friends because they don’t seem to have a problem when it comes to taking tests. However after having said that I think this instructor has a bug up her butt.
