So we’ve finally taken a test in each class. Shockingly, they were not as bad as I had dreamt of long before I started nursing school. We still have not gotten our grades yet (considering there are people still testing as I write) but I know that there are areas I can improve on. Above all things, I have this overwhelming sense of relief. The back to back testing block is over and the pace of my studying can go back to normal for a little while. For the last week or so our entire class was on edge about the many things being required of us. I have also been trying to keep up with my life outside of school as well as keep a part-time job. All these obligations are starting to wear me out. Last Friday I was so tired that I did not remember driving to school or where I parked. I spent ten minutes walking up and down the aisles of the parking lot looking for my black Chevy before I remembered that I had recently begun driving a green Nissan. Needless to say, I was annoyed. Lately I also have found that I’m forgetting to eat. If I don’t schedule meals or if they do not fall comfortably within my day, I experience sudden bouts of intense hunger and then realize that I had not had any food all day. I’m becoming slightly discombobulated (for lack of a better word). I’m hoping that when fall break gets here in a few short days (or 2 and a half weeks) that I’ll have enough time to turn my brain off and just relax. Though school is interesting, studying is not really fun. I miss fun. I need fun. Until then, I’m definitely looking forward to Grey’s Anatomy on Thursdays. That will definitely be one fixed scheduled study break!
