This Week at a Glance

The snow days last week were truly awesome. It was great to just do nothing, but now that I am almost done with my first full week of my spring semester, life just got busy. And by busy, I mean REALLY busy. For some reason, I am freaking out, and feel behind because of those stupid snow days. Regardless, it’s ok, everything will be ok, right!? On the plus side, all of my professors have re-adjusted our syllabus schedules, which is so great. Without dates, I can’t function. But, I just want to share with you how hectic things were for me this week. And by all means, I’m not bragging at all, just venting. 🙂

Monday, I had an orientation for my clinical this half of the semester, Maternity and Women’s Health Nursing. And this lasted from 1:00 PM-7:30 PM. Crazy. Dates were being thrown at me, I was frantically writing them down in my schedule, and of course I was overwhelmed. But I literally got the do’s and dont’s of this clinical. Thank goodness!

On Tuesday, my clinical got to work right away on the floor at Spectrum Butterworth. Nothing says happy spring semester than having students start right away. Although it was scary, I just needed to warmup to the hospital. It will be a good semester.

Wednesdays are hectic. In the morning, I work in the skills lab, then I have a short break for lunch. Following lunch, I have two classes from 1-5. Then, I break for dinner, then I TA for skills lab until 9:30. Then homework, then sleep.

These days are little better. I don’t have class until noon, so I sleep then workout, eat then class! After class, I TA some more, then I’m done for the day. Thank goodness.

Everyone looks forward to Fridays, especially me. I don’t have class until 1! This gives me so much time to sleep, workout, eat, and finish some homework. I am really looking forward to tomorrow. Week 2: almost check!

After typing this, my week actually didn’t seem that bad, but it was just busy and frantic because of all the information given in each class. So. Many. Assignments. And. Dates. So this is just my little introduction to this semester! I have exciting plans this weekend, so that’ll be fun to write about!
