Is your semester over too?

OH MY GOOD LORD ABOVE! Thank you JESUS! It is finally ova! Do I sound excited? Well if I don't - let me try that again. WOOO HOOO it's finished, uh huh, it's finished! Alright now that I am calm, here's the breakdown:
Poli Sci (A) (FINALLY!!!)
Algebra (B) (I'll take it)

Okay, how many remember my struggle in math? I may have mentioned it about a gazillion times on here. NO MO! LOL. I'll be taking Stats in the Spring and I know that is a whole other monster to tackle. So for the Spring:
Chemistry and Lab
Fitness for living (WTH??)

Does anyone see something wrong with this picture? Let's pray I make it through Stats and Chem together. My brain literally feels like it is going to split. I can't wait to enjoy my holiday off (both work and school) - can someone come and borrow my children too? lol

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!

Grades - Fall Semester 2012

Okay, so I am starting off a little shakey. I need to get focused. First tests of the semester: Math 1111 (ugh I really need to get through it this time and not withdraw) (85) on first test, Political Science (75) on first test but exceptional posts (taking it online). I also have an ART class, but the class is so random - you can choose 4 posts (also online) and respond for the entire semester. Ugh I cannot function like that - ADHD, I need to meet you with every week professor! I know I can do better and I will do better - heck my career depends on it! How about you share (or rather PLEASE SHARE) your studying techniques, organization skills, etc. (I swear I may have asked this in another post 2 years ago, lol).

I thought about trying to combine my daily life (outside of school) really in depth -family, work, etc. on my blog, but I'm sorry this is where I want to come to just be free and not really worry about giving the updates of the day to day juggles unless I absolutely feel it necessary or let's say someone asks... I am sure my posts will get more exciting the further into the process I get - but I will be honest, when I was searching for posts on Nursing School students, nurses, doctors, etc. no one really goes into detail on the "beginning" process, pre - reqs, apps, going the traditional route. I've read alot about direct entry, bridging, lpn-rn, students without children, already being in a program, etc. (I love the word etcetera). I am none of those - i am a non traditional 31 year old with 4 babies, no previous degree of any sort, a full time job, a husband and FULL responsibilities. I get nervous and sick as all get out whenever I think about having to actually give up my steady paycheck that I have received for the past 7 years with my company to begin full Nursing School. Who does that??? Am I whining? I am whining.

Sidebar: I cannot wait until Season 9 of Grey's hits!!!!!!!!! I have waited all summer for this - I tried to replace, well not replace (you just can't replace Grey's) okay, compensate with watching NYMed, while good - uhhh hello bring back some more episodes - I am sure it was just a feeler to see if the good people like it. Yes we do! But Grey's HECKS YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

So Excited!

It is so much fun to log into my blog and see so many people interested in what I find to be interesting - NURSING! For a moment I got a little frustrated and didn't want to be bothered with blogging. Didn't think I had anything that interesting to say. But I can honestly say I was totally wrong. This is where I can freely pour my heart on the table (as much as HIPAA will allow:-) and if I am judged so what, you are able to freely pour your heart on the table as well even if that means judging. I have been given a second opportunity to share my experiences as I journey into my career that I call a passion. The road is a long one ahead - some have already traveled it and some are taking the same journey as I am, but through guidance, advice, tears, laughter, encouragement and everything in between it will be well worth it when we can proudly clock in with RN behind our names.

All Clean

My hubby managed to get the virus cleaned off of the laptop, however this included having to bring the laptop back to manufacturer conditions. All of our pictures have now floated off into oblivion. I guess now by instinct I will make sure we BACK EVERYTHING UP! My heart is broken. Hubby says the memories are kept where they matter most - in our mind. Yeah - that even sounds stupid. I want all of the cake in the face pictures, the marathon pictures, the pictures of me looking like a moose in my gorgeous hospital gown giving birth to all of our children. Did I really not save anything? I do get to go and purchase a new netbook for my classes this semester, my husband believes this will make it up to me. I doubt it...

My Son

The little man who evidently knew that he was going to be coming into this world, even when his parents were being told otherwise... Last July, after running a marathon, after losing over 100 pounds and after totally giving up all hopes of ever having anymore children - we got the surprise of our lives. God knows how to really show you who is in charge. My tubes were tied via tubal ligation three years ago. Cut, snipped, burned, crushed, etc. This little human being still managed to make his way through. I knew in my heart that I had him in my belly, even when I was placed on hormones to have aunt flow drop me a visit. Do you know that doctor swore up and down that I couldn't possibly be pregnant? I left the doctors' office more confused than when I arrived. Nothing like relief of being pregnant when you have hurled your dinner every night for 5 weeks and craved pizza to boot - all without knowing why your body has now become the enemy. I literally thought I was dying from some sort of unknown infection - BECAUSE NO ONE COULD UNDERSTAND HOW I COULD BE PREGNANT AFTER A TUBAL. Well let me tell you for those who don't believe it - I am proof that it most certainly does and unless you know the ins and outs of your body, you will believe that the moon is orange and that your body is a barren field for flies. My son is beautiful, growing strong and proves to be a miracle everyday. Believeably, he is the reason my passion for Nursing has gotten so much stronger that it drowns out any other thought. He is the reason that my heart is guiding me towards Midwifery. My little miracle can be anyone's little miracle. I am ready to help give back...
