I apologize in advance to all my legitimate commenters. I have had to turn on the word verification, which may make leaving a comment a little more time consuming. I was getting spammed to death and it is just getting too tough to delete them all manually. Please continue to leave comments - I love hearing from and interacting with the folks that visit. - Ta ta for now...

Blogger's Block

Some days you really wanna say something but it just sounds like more of the same. I am not sure what I want to write today except I feel bad for not writing in a while. It's raining like crazy, I have an exam tomorrow and I guess I am procrastinating a little.

One thing I really have been enjoying is seeing all the interesting places around the country and world that people are stopping by from. Please feel free to leave a comment or question if you want (or not that's ok too). I am particularly interested in whovever is coming in from Rhineland/Pfaltz because my Oma (grandmother) is from Kaiserslautern which is in the Pfaltz. I would love to know a little more about all you guys, wherever you are from, and I will try to answer or respond whenever I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

Catching up!!!!!

Aaargh! Things can turn around so quickly. One day I feel like I am beginning to get a handle on my work. Then I blink. BAM! Instantly I am behind again. While focusing on just getting the reading and assignments done for this coming week - there are two individual papers, two group projects, and several exams coming up that also need attention..... It is never-ending. Sigh...

Reflections on Clinical #2

What an intense week! After a really concerted effort this weekend I am within a hair's breadth away from being completely caught up. With a little more of a push on the holiday tomorrow, I can actually get ahead of things. This prospect thrills me, since i feel that I have been playing catch up since the start of the semester. I got a 92 on my first exam and a perfect score on my first online quiz. Today's clinical went very well and I finally feel like there may be hope for me yet....

Happy New Year!
