I remember reading other nursing student's blogs and wondering why they seemed to blog so sporadically. I thought, "Surely the class load isn't keeping them from blogging?!? I won't do that.
Ha. Here I am 4 days since my last meaningful post, with a couple of photos thrown in to pass the time.
We had our first exam of the semester this morning--Assessment. It was over a lot of material, half of which we were never lectured on because of our bad weather days a couple weeks ago. I did pretty well, having found one question so far that I know I've missed, and one question that possibly didn't have a correct answer at all. The exam had 65 questions on it, so that puts each one worth less than 2 points so I can miss 5 and still have an A.
I've been studying my butt off though, trying to get everything done. It's become more than a little ridiculous though, and near impossible to complete everything and be a participant in the outside world. I had two days of clinical last week because I'm a boy, and that got rid of one of my days off. Friday I lounged and did nothing, which turned out to be a big mistake. Saturday I started freaking out in the morning at the volume of material I had to do, so immediately after lunch I hit the books. I got most of my Foundations and Health Promotions reading finished by about 9 pm. Sunday, I got the family out the door to church, then hit the grocery store while making a pizza for their lunch. I was in Barnes & Noble (a favorite study spot,) by 1230 and I didn't get home until 9 pm. I finished my reading for Foundations, completed a LONG ASS online module, and studied 4 of 6 chapters for the exam. Monday I was in class all day long, got home at 430, made dinner for the family, and then got them out the door to small group meeting while I studied the last two chapters. Ugh. I'm tired just thinking about it. Or maybe I'm still tired from doing it.
No break though, because I have lab at 2 until 5, then home to fix dinner. Then I have yet another online module to finish before midnight tonight.
Anyway, I hope to be around to all your blogs this evening sometime and do some catch-up commenting. Thanks to everyone for checking on me! :)
