Finals

Standard

EEK! Panic mode is setting in; I have finals tomorrow for my Pediatric and OB rotation in nursing school. I have loved every single moment of the quarter and I am sad to see it go. I am however, not looking forward to 2 finals tomorrow and 2 HESI exams next Wednesday. I don’t want to leave OB/Peds. I’ve found my calling and it is definitely in the labor & delivery/ postpartum world of nursing.

Well I did it. I have officially completed my third quarter on nursing school, which means there are only 5 to go! I’ve been incredibly stressed all week, hardly sleeping, headaches, stomach aches, the usual… And it’s finally over and oh so worth it.

Between all of my classes the last two weeks I have had 3 group projects, homework, and 6 finals. Yesterday I had my skills finals in my Fundamentals of Nursing skills class and pulled the teacher that has hated me all quarter. And guess what; she complimented me! Needless to say I passed 🙂

Well today I had my written final in Fundamentals and while I was confident I was still extremely nervous. I studied a little and did practice tests to prepare. Somehow I got a 90%!!!! From everyone I’ve talked to that appears to be the highest grade. YAHOOOOOOO! I’m still in shock and completely over the moon.

Now it’s off to Palm Springs for the weekend, 3 days at Disneyland next week, and just a whole bunch of shenanigans over the next 10 days. I can’t wait to be a nurse 💉❤️🏥

Finally back to school today. I only had 4 days off but it felt far longer. I can’t believe how much I missed school. For all that I slept maybe 3 hours last night I couldn’t wait to go to school today.

I missed my friends. I missed my routine. I even missed driving in my car (it’s quiet unlike my house). But the best part was getting to wear my scrubs for the first time!!! I officially feel like a nursing student. I may have already been in school for 6 months but somehow it feels more real now.

But now I’m off to bed because I have to be up early again. I love my life!

And so it begins…

I’ve been thinking about creating a blog since the moment after I realized I was really getting divorced. That was 2 years ago. I keep putting it off and claiming that life is too busy but I think it’s finally time to release all of the crazy frustrations, anger, pain, sorry, and so many other emotions I can’t quite comprehend yet.

It’s been 2 years now that I finally left my now ex husband and I can’t imagine going back. I may be 26, divorced, no kids and no love interest by I am also 26, happily divorced, a full time nursing student, work part time running a construction company and I love my life. I’m blessed in the friends that stuck by me through all of my ups and downs, I have an amazing family, a bright future and finally a grasp on who I am, what I want, and who I deserve.

This blog is going to be my outlet to the crazy 2 years of nursing school ahead and my relief on still being alone at 26. I’m in a crazy place in my life and can’t wait to see where life takes me. Come join me on my journey…
