1 Semester Down

3 more semesters to go.

I am beyond words happy.  I passed my first semester of Nursing School.  I kept thinking that I was going to fail and loose a semester.  There was 2 girls from our from cohort of 18 that did not pass the semester and I was sad for them….

So how did I find out that I passed?

So yesterday after completing the last final for NUR 310, one of my classmates had mentioned having lunch together before winter break.  So 13 of us met at the Spaghetti Factory.  Were all having lunch, having a good time, when Erin ( a super awesome classmate) lets us know that grades are in.  We all knew we had passed the other classes so this class grade would determine whether we made it to the next semester or not.  Of course everyone pulls out their amazing iPhones, and I’m sitting there like “O-M-Gosh, my brick phone doesnt even get wifi.” Everyone soon finds out that they passed, and a couple of my classmates hand me their phones so I could check my grade.  Another girl (Lauren,shes awesome too) gets crazy happy/excited that she passed,  She goes loud and screams “I F****** PASSED” proceeds to bang on the table and keeps screaming.  I’m really happy for her and everyone starts clapping and cheering.  I am still sitting there waiting for the site to come up.  While I am waiting all I am thinking about is how embarrassing it would be if I didn’t pass.

What would my reaction be? Would I cry? yes, I would cry…No wait, I would pretend to pass and they just would never see me again =) Yep, that was my plan.

So my classmates gets quiet, I guess something in my face let them know that I was calculating my grade.  I have a serious face, someone asks me if I passed.  I put the phone down and I say with a smile and quite voice “I passed” then I let out my breath.

The room cheers again.

Translation: 

I passed I passed I passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im in the library smiling really big and near to tears.  When I saw my grade I started laughing like a maniac- I’m insane.  The girl next to me got up and left- As I’m writing this Im giggling like an idiot!

I know I sound stupid, forgive me but I’m just full of emotion right now.

Last night I was having trouble breathing and my chest was hurting- all from the stress of not knowing if I was going to pass my Pharmacology exam.  “Nursing school will really be the end of me” I thought.  Nevertheless, here I am…alive and ready for this Christmas break!

Passing a class with a passing grade has never made me feel so alive!
I am so happy to be alive!

Some call me overly dramatic, but I cant help it!

Woo I passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Moment of Truth

I don’t believe I have ever studied so much for a final exam.

Today I finished my Pharmacology class.  The test was 70 question, 70 points and I only needed to make at least 50 of those points to pass the class.  I am not going to lie, I’m feeling a little numb.  I took the exam did the best I could, and I am not sure if I passed with at least a 70% which is nerve racking.   I am deadly afraid to go look at my score (if its even posted).

I studied all weekend and I also skipped my sleep last night because I was not feeling prepared.  The lack of sleep is probably what made my mind fuzzy.  Not sleeping was a stupid move, I know- my body is just not what is used to be.  I used to be able to sleep 2 hours and feel amazing (not even kidding) as I woke up.

Oh well, I guess now all I can do is trust that I answered most of the questions right and study for my next final exam which is this coming Monday.
