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.

Survival Mode

Quick update-

I did not pass my Pharmacology exam.  Consequently, I reduced my hours at work.  I am feeling much better about that decision.  I love my job, but I can’t let that ruin my future dreams of becoming a Nurse.  I was getting exhausted with the little sleep I was getting.

My sleep ranged from 4-2 hours a day because I was working and I started to fall behind on my studying due to assignments….. Nursing school was (and still is) starting to come at me all at once- I have to stop and remind myself that I need to calm down.  I start letting my brain think of all the due dates, exams, quizzes, labs, assessments and then I start to think about failing- I start having almost like a panic attack.

I guess I don’t handle stress as great as I thought.

However, this is my first week of “Freedom from Work” I will only work 3 hours on Friday and about 8 hours on a Saturday (Told you I reduced my hours).  I am just glad I did not get fired.  All I need is  money for my car insurance and gas…that is all I need.  If I cannot afford to keep a phone- I can live without one!

Changing the Subject from me being broke-

Today we had math exam (Med doses) and an abbreviation exam.  I got a 100% on that so I feel a little better.  I don’t know how it is in other nursing schools, but here you pass only if you get a 77% and above.  So if I scored an 80 % that is not a B…its still a C- which totally  crushes how you perceive your performance, but hey at least I am passing right?

Now that I am in Nursing school, I will be content with just passing….Never thought I’d say that.
