Studying. That’s what I’ve been doing. All the time, every day. It feels like it’s never ending but an end is truly in sight. May 10th will be my last day and I will walk in my graduation ceremony May 17th. It can’t get here quick enough. Sometimes it feels like all I do is go to school/clinical, go to my small part-time job, and come home to study.
Gabe and the poor kiddos are awesome to put up with me but I know it’s not easy. Last night we went to a local bounce house/game place so the kids could run off some energy. I sat and did medication calculations and studied while Gabe made sure the kids didn’t run in to anyone during all of their joy. See, I told you he puts up with me.
Today I have a ton of housework to do, things to clean, stuff to organize, and yet I’m sitting here studying for nursing once again. This week brings the first two tests of the semester and lots of homework to turn in. The one frustrating thing in all of that (as if there’s only one thing!) is my silly printer is out of yellow ink and because of that I can’t even print in black and white. The consequence of that is no printing the moment I need to print, which ended up turning in to me having to go to my awesome mother-in-law’s house late Monday evening to print out things I needed for Tuesday. Yep, really annoying. I even took a few minutes to write to one of my favorite blogs – The Consumerist – about it and they printed my frustrations! Check it out HERE.
So that’s how I’m passing my time these days. Studying and complaining about things that hinder my studying/schoolwork. If you need me, just look for the woman with her head buried in a book.
