M.I.A! But now I'm back...

I had the crappiest weeks of all weeks that any sane person could possibly have had last week. I was so emotional. I went from not knowing if I was going to remain employed, to running around trying to gather last minute paperwork for the weekend CNA class that is an hour away from my house, to ordering my books for school and still having to wait for the order to process because the financial aid office claimed to have never received my signed Master Promissory Note (it was completed and signed in March). My hubby had to purchase all of my books for me on his account! OMG, this has been a complete and utter nightmare. I couldn't believe I didn't even have the strength to blog about it, to vent my frustrations and receive the kind words of encouragement. Nope, just didn't feel like doing it. But I realized this blog world totally is an outlet an incredibly strong, positive outlet that I really need. Some of my dear bloggy friends missed me and I have missed them, that made me feel awesome.

In about a week or so, I plan to get my laptop my hubby promised me and I know it will be so much easier to blog in bed verses at the desk that is in my daughter's room, or on the blackberry or even the dang IPOD Touch. The screens are just terribly too small. Anywhooo, I went to visit the CNA school that was dang near in the next state.. lol I was supposed to start last Saturday, but couldn't get all of the documents in on time (criminal history, PPD was complete, lab work etc.) So now there are two schools that offer the weekend program, both of which are waiting for a minimum of six people in order to start a June 26th class. Once again I WAIT!. I'm ready, they are not. Such a headache. I logged into my classes that are online, tons of assignments already to complete, exams on June 1st. (I'll post schedule of coursework *online and campus* sometime this week). I feel as though I am already behind in my reading, I have been trying to read everywhere that I can and that is only for 2 of my classes (I have 5). So much catching up to do, ALREADY... I purchased all of my notebooks, my organizer, pens, pencils, highlighters and these really cute new post-it notes, that are removable and rewritable with tabs. Hopefully I can get completely organized and stay that way... Any suggestions? Study tips, organization keys? Offers of mental stability advice??? Glad to be back!

  1. So glad you're back!!!!

    It will all work out in the end. Whatever is meant to be will be... promise!


    Sounds like you're ahead of the game on organization and that's good. Honestly, i think as long as you read every chapter, go to every class, take notes, and maybe do flashcards, you'll see the results you want :)

    At least that's what's worked for me the past, oh, 17 + years of school ;)

  2. Awww....girl. I am the same way. When things tend to start getting bad I close myself off. I have realized though that blogging really helps so I when I feel myself pulling away, I force myself to blog. It really is cathartic. I hope that things start to work out. It may not seem like anything could go right right now, but they will eventually turn around and everything will fall into place just as it should. Hang in there.

    P.S. Don't disappear again!!

  3. Organization is my specialty! I always used a schedule, and I blocked out everything (in pencil!) all the assignments that are due, all the test dates, and even my dedicated study time. Its seems anal but I even wrote out the time for grocery shopping.

    It worked for me while I worked and did nursing school for two years.

    You can do this!!

  4. Can't help with the study tips and I am definitely not the one to offer any advise on organization, but as for mental stability advise - well I am trying to convince myself that mental stability is highly overrated, so I may not be your gal there either. But I can offer my support, so go get em girl. One step at a time and have faith that you will get there!
