Tasklist from Hell

Sigh.... All right - time to start hacking away at this...

I'm glad it's kind of blurry. I'm tired just looking at it.

Here's my day: about 1/4 of my class is super competitive, grade wise. A lot of them have prior degrees and they expect to get straight A's in nursing school. And some of them do. But the ones I know of who do are overweight, wound tight and probably really hard to work alongside. In other words, they are grade-focused to the point of not caring care of their own bodies or emotional needs.

I ain't goin' there. I got a
B on my Pharm test after busting my bohunkus on it. An 89.57 percent. And you know, I'm OK with that.

I've got to wade through my task list and come out of this with friendships, marriage and my own health intact. I can still further my career as a nurse and keep my scholarship if I get B's. A few A's thrown in won't hurt.

So, please, take care of your health while you're working on that list. If you don't do it, no one else can.

Oh by the way, at the end of the day one of my profs said our test is being moved up a week. That is, read the six chapters for Tuesday plus the assignments, plus we're having a 5 chapter test on Tuesday, on material we haven't covered yet.

I was pretty panicked. We all were. We've got a big paper due in 2 weeks and I want to get the outline done this weekend. Plus another Patho test is coming up on Thursday.

So, I get home and just before I go to the gym I check my school's blackboard online: she made a mistake. The test is not this week; it's next.

Reprieve. I went to the gym and worked out. It was the best thing I did for myself all day.

I totally agree! Well, we are definitely in the same boat.... I would love to get A's but I have promised myself that I will take care of myself. B's wont kill me. I have lost 30 pounds since making that commitment. My BP and resting heart rate is down and I can get up the stairs without getting as winded. This has actually given me more energy for school so it pays off. Nice reprieve , BTW. We had a class get cancelled last week. I love those little reprieves. Keep the faith and thanks for stopping by again!
