I have a confession to make. The initial countdown was wrong. *GASP* How could I be so careless?! Actually, I was only off by 1 day. That’s not horrible, right? 4 weeks and 4 days is the correct count. I promise! 🙂
I’m already starting to pep-talk myself for the upcoming semester. Telling myself that I’m going to exercise, eat well, keep on top of my reading, and spend time enjoying my hobbies. I’m not so sure that it’s working! I’ve already started to think about ways I can get out of doing the things that I enjoy the most. Why on earth would I do that? Because I have myself believing that I will no longer have time to eat, sleep, and breathe, let alone actually enjoy something! However, I am aware that you have to have some kind of break from school or you’ll find yourself being the patient for your own clinical group’s psych rotation. I just need to convince myself to get it together! Easier said than done, huh? I think the phrase, “Where there is a will, there is a way” goes here. What do you all plan to use as a stress buster? Anybody got any good tips, exercises, or fun things to help reduce the stress?
Now that we’re all stressed out from thinking about being stressed out, let’s end on a more positive note…
Only two days left until the weekend! WOOHOO! I hope everyone is having a great week!

Hello, World Wide Web!
I’ve been debating on whether or not to join the blogging fad and I’ve finally given in. Until this point in my life I felt like I didn’t have anything interesting to talk about. Well, that’s all about to change. I just got accepted into the clinical rotation portion of my bachelor’s degree nursing program! And who doesn’t love a good story about blood, guts, and poop? I’ll try to stick to the main theme of nursing school, but I can’t promise that I won’t wander into other territory. I’m hoping to connect with other nursing students, those thinking about becoming a nursing student, and those who are already nurses!
About my nursing career so far:
I am a Senior student with 2 years of school left. Yes, that means 6 years of college total. I took the scenic route, ok!? I avoided choosing the nursing major right off the bat because I considered it cop-out major. It seems that EVERYONE chooses nursing. At the time I didn’t know that EVERYONE doesn’t make it through nursing. When I finally gave in to the notion of nursing, I absolutely fell in LOVE with it! This is the calling that God has given me and I thank Him everyday for that! Anyway, my future goal is to work ER/ICU and eventually get into flight nursing. I like to live on the edge.
I guess that’s enough for now. Who knows if anyone will even find this blog. If you’re out there, let me know!
