I've got mad skills.

So yesterday I finally got my skills checks up to date. I did, drum roll please, 12 check offs in two days. No one thought I could do it but I somehow pulled it off. I'm just thankful that we are now done with skills lab. Of course I wasn't the only slacker in the lab trying to get checked off. Lets just hope that I know what I'm doing when it comes to my intergrated Friday.
I am so sick of studying. I am over it, over it, over it. I can not wait until this weekend because I get to celebrate!!!! My group is going out to lunch after the final Thursday, me and some of the girls are going to get crazy Friday night and I have a birthday party to go to Saturday. I can't wait!!!
It will be nice to have a weekend where there is no studying involved and no guilt about the lack of studying:)

So over it!

Ok, when is this freaking semester going to end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have way to much studying to do and I don't want to read anything. I am so terrified of this skills scenario. I am hoping I don't mess up too bad. We only have to get a 75%. Oh, yeah and not kill our dummy. That will definitely fail you. I had my Hessie for OB today and it sucked ass as usual. I cant' begin to decipher what I got. They only give you a gazillion numbers and good luck on figuring out which one is your grade.
I can't believe that my first year is almost over. I really can't believe that in one year I will be sitting for the boards and they will be letting me loose in a hospital. SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really scary because half the time I really feel like I KNOW NOTHING! I hope this feeling ends soon. Everyone keeps telling me that it will all fall together next semester. Yeah, lets hope so.
I did get to start my first IV!!!!! I was so upset that it I forgot about it. It was freaking awesome!!! I love poking people.:) I can't believe that I wasn't even nervous!

Feeling Better

I am feeling so much better today. I had my final evaluation for my clinical. I usually get all 4's but I got mostly 3's this rotation. WTF. I was upset because I was told yesterday that I might not make it because of something really just dumb. I mean all this time and you are going to tell me some bullshit that you could have addressed weeks ago???? I mean it wasn't even that big, just paperwork. GAH!! But then I was told today my someone that she always has someone that she picks on. Lovely. So I was a wee bit upset yesterday.
I have an exam tomorrow and my presentation. Yippee.....Is it May 5th yet????

It shouldn't be this hard.

I am hating school right now. I truly am. I have never once thought that I wouldn't make it through school but after today, I just don't know. I don't get why this semester I am having such a hard time with some of these instructors. I really don't. I feel like beating my head against a wall right now. I just want to end. God, please just let me make it through these next two weeks.

13 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I'm free!!!! Second semester will be done and over with!!!!! I am so over this semester. I just found out yesterday that we have a summer reading list. WTF??? Yeah, way to ruin my summer vacation. Grrrr. It will be a busy summer. I'm going to Alaska for a month which I am super excited about. I can not wait to see my mom. I miss her so much! Then I have to plan some things to do around the community for NSNA and we also have to have some fundraisers this summer for our class account. Blah, Blah, Blah.
I went to NICU Monday and I LOVED IT!!!!!!!! I did get to go to the NICU at my hospital but it was just to observe. This NICU was huge!!! Tons of babies!!! I finally got to do some assessments on newborns. Yeah, it's only about time. The baby that I fed puked on me. :( But at least he felt better.:) I also got to insert my first NG tube!!!! That was fun!!!
The one thing that is hard about being in this area is seeing how many young moms are out there and how many moms are abusing while they are pregnant. I don't think that snorting coke at 39 weeks is such a great plan.
I was on the phone talking to a friend when her house shook. We thought maybe a plane had crashed but nope a house just exploded!!! EXPLODED!!! Well, the first thing that popped into my head was meth lab. Well, that's what officials think it is too. NICE. Luckily no one was hurt. I would hate to think that children could've been in the house.

The Countdown Begins

I have only three weeks of school left!!!! I can not wait. This truly has been the semester from hell. I can not wait until it is over. I have to really get my butt into gear and get everything done. I have a lot to do this weekend! I was really bad and didn't make it to class today. I really should have but all well, it's done now. I actually slept for 14 hours yesterday! I have been so exhausted. I am so hating my rotation right now. I hate the hospital because the nurses are such buttheads and don't even get me started on the other things. I think it is best to just keep my mouth shut but I feel like I'm learning nothing and I have the suspicious feeling that my instructor really doesn't like me.
I didn't get any sleep when I was in Baltimore. We had to be up super early and of course we went out. Then we would stay up talking until 3 or 4 in the morning. But I ended up having the best time!!! Our group so rocked!
You'll never believe who we had to share the hotel with. The freaking Miss USA pageant and cheerleaders. Now isn't that just a weird mix?
Baltimore was so freaking cold! And the weather is just as bad as the Midwest. It would be nice and warm one minute and thing it would be raining and cold as hell.
Well, I have so much to say but I really need to get my apartment cleaned. It looks like a freaking hurricane went through here!

I had an amazing trip! I will post all about it sometime this week. I am going to try to catch up on everyone's blog and then try to study form my exam that is tomorrow. I'm such a bad student!!! Only four more weeks left! I can't wait!!!

Random Bits of Nothing

Well, I think I may be the world's biggest procrastinator. I really think I may need therapy. I have a million things on my to do list and I haven't done a darn thing! I so need to pack but can not for the life of me figure out what to wear. It doesn't help that most of my wardrobe is suited for the climate of South Florida.
I went to the Indian boutique yesterday and picked up the most gorgeous shalwar kameez and a tunic so I could have more choices when I get more time to go to the masjid more frequently. The shop owner is extremely nice and we started talking and he asked if my boyfriend was making me convert. I laughed and said no one could never make me do anything that I didn't want to! I do have Irish blood in me after all:)
Me and baby had dinner at this fabulous Middle Eastern restaurant. I will be going back because the food was just fantastic. And the service was wonderful too. Of course when we walked in the group of men by the door just stop their conversation and looked us up and down. Baby didn't notice but he never notices stuff like that.
Well, today we went for lunch and it wasn't as good. The first place we walked out of because it was just nasty. Then we decide to try this Mexican place right next to. Well, I wasn't really hungry and decide that I just wanted one cheese enchiladas. No go. Apparently you could only get combos. WTF?? I don't want three enchiladas and rice and beans. I hate wasting food!! So I decided not to eat. Well, I'm glad I didn't. The salsa was horrific and as soon as baby's food was brought out the waiter killed this HUGE roach that was climbing on the wall. Yeah, his appetite was gone after that.
Ok, I am so going to have to get off my bum and exercise. I was really bummed today when I went to try on my favorite pair of pants and they are way to tight. I have been eating way to much junk food too. Blah. Damn, why can't chips and chocolate be good for you! And why, oh why do I have to crave it!
