Enjoying my break...

Still have a several more weeks before I start school & I'm always surprised by how quickly I decompress after school's out.  Of course this semester was pretty relaxed in the first place so I guess that's why it was easy.  I have done nothing since the break.  Well, that's not true, I did get together with 2 of my other nursing buddies & their significant others for dinner one night, that was nice.  It was interesting because I really like the two girls, they are very sweet.  But after we left the restaurant I asked my hubby what he thought about them & he said "They aren't someone I would see you hanging out with."  It was an interesting observation, b/c he was probably correct.  Those two particular girls are very smart, sweet & on the shy side & I am about as far from that as you can get (well not the smart part ;).  But, like I said, I really like them alot & we had a great dinner. I like getting to know my classmates on a mor…

1 year down....



1 1/2 more to go....

So, 2nd semester is IN THE BOOKS!  Here's the damage. 

 Pharm - A, Research - A, Intro to Nursing Practice - B. 

All in all, I have to say, pretty good for someone that hardly ever went to class.  Seriously, although I love my program I will have to admit that some of these teachers need to invest in a class on "how to teach".  For our Pharm midterm & final, the professor gave us a list of questions that were in the data bank (277 for the midterm & 355 for the final) & said "Here's the questions, happy studying."  I promise you, I learned more from researching those questions than I learned in the whole class.  Since when did teaching become posting a ppt & then reading it in class??  How are you actually TEACHING me anything?  No need to go to class, I mean dang I can read a ppt for myself....BUT, it's done & over with now & I am finally on to 3rd semester!!! Well, not tomorrow or anything, we go back o…

Two more finals to go...

Monday is Pharm & Tuesday is Fundamentals and then semester 2 of nursing school is IN THE BOOKS!!  Soo excited that it's almost over.  I finally got my grade in research & after all of the little "projects" that she had us do I was able to pull off an A!!! My final grade came up to an 89.8, which gets rounded up to an A, whew, so excited!!

As of right now I have a 92 in Pharm and a 79.8 in Fundamentals.  So, I am hoping to keep my A in Pharm & I think it's pretty safe to say that I'm only going to pull off a B in Fundamentals, but hey that's better than a C (but yet not an A)!!  It's really my fault, I totally slacked in that class this semester. Ok, I'll be honest, I slacked in all my classes this semeter.  Well, not so much slacked, as didn't attend.  Our pharm teacher & our Fundamentals teacher put everything on PPT slides & then they would have us meet & they would just read over/go over the PPT's.  I'm sorry, …
