Paper disaster & melt down...

So remember I said I had a paper due. Well let me just tell you what I did with that paper. So, I wrote the paper initially & let it sit until the day it was due. That day I had the paper due & a HUGE assessment due. But, since I had already written the paper, I figured I'd just clean it up, put in my references & turn it in, no biggie. Then I'd have plenty of time to get my lab done & turned in. So I got out of class at 12:00, get something to eat & start the paper at 12:30. So, I basically rewrote the paper & got done with it around 3:30 or so, went to do something to it and DELETED the WHOLE thing!! Now, at this point I know you're saying "Why didn't you save it as you went?" Well, normally I do that, but I wasn't on my computer, I was on the computer at school & I just didn't. So that was THREE hours of work down the drain. Now mind you both the paper AND the lab had to be due by 11:59 that night and I KNEW the lab was going to take at least a couple of hours, and by this time I was SO tired and I just wanted to go home. I live about 45 minutes from campus, I knew my kids were home & I was O-V-E-R it. So what did I do? I took the paper I had originally written, cleaned it up a bit and turned that sucker in within an hour. I was DONE with it. I didn't even have my references right on it but at that point I just didn't care. I turned it in. I'm still waiting to get it back, I'll be lucky to get a C on it. So, needeless to say, tears were shed, phone calls were made and my lab got turned in late, BUT it's all over with now & I've been on Spring Break since then & I haven't done a DARN thing. NOTHING. Of course I need to be studying for my Assessment test, that's basically an A class that I'm making a C in, just b/c I haven't really been putting any focus into it, but I know I need to b/c I don't see myself getting into a FNP and/or DNP programs with a C average. Sooo, probably tomorrow I'm going to go ahead & get back into the books. I do like spring break, but honestly I miss school. I feel MUCH more productive when I'm at school. So, 4 more days of Spring break and then it's back to the grind & then only 7 more weeks of actual school, my finals & this first semester will be in the books. Can you believe it? I can't. This semester has literally FLOWN by. No other semester has gone by so fast for me. I'm so glad that it's going by fast, I'm ready to start making some MONEY!! Anyhoo, I have more interesting stuff to talk about, but I'm tired so I'll try to post more tomorrow.
