SCHOOOOOOOL’S OUT FOREVER! (Okay maybe not, but that song is very relevant right now hahah). It feels so good to be out right now! Quick recap of my day….
Woke up at 5:30, got to school around 6:30, chilled at Marian and Paige’s place with Mikhail until test time, took the final exam, was slightly sad to find out I got 84% after checking my answers in the answer sheet our professor let us check after the exam. Went home, was about to take a quick nap when Marian said she’d give me four of those Cinemark movie tickets to pick up her brother at the airport and hang out with him till 1, so basically how could I resist? She was basically paying me in crack right there LOL. Ate at Millbrae Pancake House with the nursing fam Marian, Cristina, Kate, Mikhail, plus Tommy. Went home, I was supposed to nap from 2:40-3:45, ended up waking up at 6:30 but said FUCK IT since school’s out! Took care of my household obligations and now I’m here hahah. Gonna go out and drink with the nursing cohort later today, life is good! Oh yeah, and I checked my grade in the class I just took the final for and saw I actually ended up getting 86%. Checked my final grade… 87.85% which rounds up to 88% which stays a B+! I mean of course I wish I got an A- like I planned before the final, but at least I didn’t drop! I was so freakin’ happy to see that grade hahah, so I’m at two A’s and a B+ for the semester. I’m literally awash with emotions at the moment lol. The only downer is that my wrist is still injured and I keep hearing this clicking in my surgically repaired knee and I have no idea what it is. I hope I didn’t redamage anything, but there isn’t really any pain or swelling so I hope that’s a good sign. Even so, I’m on such a high right now, 90+ days of pure bliss! I’m so relieved this semester is over and we’re about to be Junior 2’s!
For everyone else still taking finals, keep grinding!
In approximately 48 hours I will be completely free for the summer. I’m already almost in summer mode lol. I need to ace this last final in order to bring my grade up to an A- and I’m hoping I can pull it off. When I get out of that final though FREEDOMMMMMM! I’m already planning an all day movie hopping extravaganza with 6 movies the following day that starts at 9 AM and ends at 11:20 PM hahahaha. Just two more days of hard work for 90+ days of leisure, I’ll take that deal any day of the week! Good luck with finals everybody!
I was planning on studying today for my last Final which is on 5/13 but I’ve felt completely out of sync today. I got home at like 2 something AM after watching Iron Man 3 last night at 11 PM. I didn’t fall asleep until about 3 something AM and I woke up at 10:30. I had breakfast and then I don’t know what it was but I started feeling dizzy and getting a headache so I basically laid down in bed until about 4 o’clock which is when I started getting ready to go to church. I’m feeling better now but I think I need to take the rest of this day off to recuperate after studying my ass off for that HESI exam yesterday. I’ll get back on the studying wagon tomorrow because I need to kill this Final. Paige asked me to recommend her a movie to watch and I said Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and thought to myself “I’d sure like to watch that movie right now”, so that’s what I’m doing lol. Plus, I did just watch Iron Man 3 which was directed by the same man who made Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (Shane Black FTW!). I’m taking the rest of this day off, have a good evening everybody!
So it’s the night before our big HESI exam (yes, the exam is on a Saturday morning, fuck nursing school lol) and I’m super duper worried. I’m basically in the same situation I was last semester where for my assessment class I had JUST hit A- range with a low 90% and then I bombed HESI and had to settle for a B when after the Final my grade remained at status quo. This semester has been a real grind in this community/mental health class but I JUST brought my grade up to a low 90% again. I tried to study as hard as I could this time, but sometimes I feel like I’m hitting diminishing returns. I just hope I can keep my grade up because I don’t want to be anywhere near that 75% borderline going into the Final (by the way, anything below 75% in the class is failing). There is no way in hell that I’m repeating any semester. I’ve worked too damn hard to let some shit like that happen. I can do this… I can do this…
This is my one post of the day because I haven’t posted anything all day! (Can’t even remember the last time that’s happened!). My queue ran out and I haven’t been online at all today because I was at clinical and studying all day! Well… almost all day, I started watching the Warriors game when I noticed on nba.com that they were down double digits without me watching and I said to myself “MY TEAM NEEDS ME TO WATCH!!!” It paid off, they won! But that fourth quarter… ugh… that was some of the sloppiest shit I’ve ever seen in my life in a playoff basketball game. We were lucky to pull that game out. Anyways, I’m not going to say I’m putting myself on Tumblr hiatus because the last time I said that I was on here even more than I usually am LOL. I’ll probably only check once in a while because I have to put myself on lockdown until May 13th. HESI exam this Saturday (which means I’ll miss Iron Man 3’s opening day *sigh*, I’ll save it for Saturday night), final on 5/13, and I’m not sure if my other professor is still doing a take home final? We’ll see about that. I’ll check in from tim to time to maintain my sanity, but other than that happy blogging everybody!
When they say kids these days have it easy and are spoiled, they’re not fucking joking. So I found out recently that this semester’s crop of Sophomore 2’s (2nd semester of Sophomore year) don’t have to do sterile gloving while performing their fucking skills checks offs SMH, which was a huge pain in the ass for all of us last sem. I also found out that our professor for Patho II is allowing group quizzes. GROUP FUCKING QUIZZES!!! This is an outrage! I worked my ass off all semester last sem to get maintain an A heading into the final and then she throws a fucking curveball for the final that drops my shit down to an A-, and now I gotta hear about all this bullshit. Fuck USF nursing! LOL
Haven’t really made an actual update in a while. Too busy trying to enjoy my last few days in the Philippines. I fly back home tomorrow and then it’s back to reality and life sucking again =(. Just found out yesterday that I have a shit ton of things to study for and do in nursing school and we haven’t even begun the fucking semester yet! I haven’t even ordered my books yet! I am pretty much screwed because I only have the plane ride (which I’ll probably spend sleeping) and one jet lagged day to study for our med calc test and skills check off, on top of the fucking reading we already have to do. Why the fuck did I wait until yesterday to check my email? Because I am a fucking idiot, that’s why. Can I just stay here in the Philippines and bum it out? That’s looking like a pretty good alternative to all this stress/worry that I have waiting for me back home. One of these days I’m just going to collapse and die of a heart attack due to all this pressure.
|Diana:||Get off Tumblr! Study! Study so you won't feel guilty later.|
|Me:||Trust me, I won't feel guilty either way.|
I don’t think you truly know what it means to be addicted to a TV show until you forgo studying and marathon a TV show until 4 in the morning knowing you have to get up in a few hours and take a midterm. There. I’ve said it. Haha.
We’re studying the musculoskeletal system for our upcoming Assessment midterm and while doing the reading I literally cringed when I read the words “sports-related injuries,” “meniscus,” and “ligaments.” Even after all this time and starting to feel normal again physically, it still hurts just to read about it *sigh*. Oh well… back to studying!
NED = NURSING SCHOOL
HOMER = ME
I miss the days when I could play Modern Warfare 2 online multiplayer for 9 straight hours with the goons the day before a final because we were going to “play until we lose,” and STILL get an A on the final the next day. Simpler times…
I am such a fucking slacker lol. Our nursing care plans are due on Mondays @ 4 PM, but I usually ask for an extension. So I’m in my pathopharm class right now working on my nursing care plan hahaha. Goes back to the whole idea that I’m working on one thing and then there’s five more things I have to finish. Thank God my professor is technologically savvy and she puts up her lectures as podcasts. That plus the Express Dictate program are my saviors for taking notes in this class. I amazinglyyyyyy passed my assessment quiz with barely any studying, so fucking stupid of me to put off studying until like the day before. I’m doing relatively well in all of my classes, nowhere near the danger zone of 75% which is considered failing in this program. Just gotta keep it up… Ok, gotta go back and work on my care plan.
