I'm almost finished with a month's worth of school and can I just say.. I'm still alive `=]
The transition from being unemployed to full-time student is no joke! I have mixed feelings all the time.. from being totally lost one minute to being calm and collected the next. I came home from my first day of class sad and fearing "Do I have what it takes to become a nurse?!?" (I can thank mostly Pathophysiology for that doubt.)
Some days are good and I get excited learning something new in class. Other days I'm spaced out (don't worry I have an audio recorder for that problem) and wondering if I'll have enough time to study. I'm behind on all my TV shows (except PLL heh) and don't even get me started on being a total outcast among friends & family. I went from seeing my bestie once a week to not even knowing what's going on with her in the past month! Of course social media like Facebook & Twitter doesn't help my loneliness issue either. And the weekends are the hardest when I know everyone is out having a great time and I'm home trying to cover what I learned in a week from five classes. The good thing is that I'm constantly telling myself "only two years Vee..."
I complaining a lot right now aren't I, considering I got accepted into nursing school! Don't get me wrong I'm beyond grateful for this opportunity. It's opened so many new doors while closing out the ones I should have shut a long time ago. I'm truly happy with all the changes around me.. but I haven't gotten around in adapting to the changes quite well yet. I'm hoping it won't take me long to get the hang of things, especially with prioritizing my time and studying. I guess that's what happens when you're moving on to better things huh?
I have two quizzes and one big exam back to back this week. I'm hoping to get out of this weird non-studying funk I'm in and get through all those chapters of adult nursing, health assessment, and pharmacology. So what I'm trying to say.. break time is over and I'm out of here!
