All of you know by now that I've started back at school.
If you didn't, that explains the sheer lack of interaction you get from me some days.
So, for the last two weeks, I've been living off of posts I wrote forever ago and guest posts,
which means that today is the first day I've actually sat down and written a post.
So what better one to write than about the first day of school?
My first day of class was actually a clinical orientation from 8:00a to 12:30p and then a night class from 5:30-8:30. So even though it was a long day and it wore me out, it wasn't that bad. Still feeling pretty confident.
Then the second day happened.
Our first class was a 2 hour class and it really wasn't that bad. Except for one thing, she posts the powerpoints after class. If you are a nursing student, you know how awkward this is. First, how am I supposed to know what to read and focus on? Second, what exactly am I supposed to take notes on? Take it all the way back to high school and do it on notebook paper? It's awkward. That's all.
My second class is the hardest class. It's OB and there's lots of information and material. I read beforehand over the summer so this class isn't that bad either but it was long and the teacher seemed to be all over the place, but I like her. She really likes her subject.
Then the third class happened. Oh boy. What's supposed to be an easy class might as well be in another language. And everyone feels this way. And because it's a new teacher, we have no idea how students that have had her in the past feel about her, meaning we are shooting in the dark as far as testing goes.
(and as this is posted, I am taking a test in this class today, meaning I'll be knee deep in notes and mountain dew. Wish me luck!)
And then it happened.
The anxiety caught up with me.
I went to bed at 7:00pm.
Hello new difficult semester. I thought you were supposed to be the easy one.
So if you don't hear from me much, I'm sorry. Literally there are some days I don't look at my twitter until 4:30 or 5 in the afternoon and emails have suddenly had a magical thing of disappearing because I read them on my phone and then forget to look at them to answer them later. So, bear with me.
I leave you with some favorite e-cards for nursing students
and please, for the love of God, wash your hands...
