What The Coming Week Holds For Me

April 26, 2007

I can see the light…at this time next week I will be finished with my second semester of nursing school, one that has been quite difficult.

Today I am studying for my pathophysiology exam. I also got a bunch of other stuff done, like filling out my FAFSA and my tax amendment form. By the way, ladies and gentlemen, do yourself a favor and remember to make copies of all the forms you send in to the IRS. I have done so every year except this year, and this is the year that I found an additional W-2 after I had already sent my forms in. I was quite annoyed with myself.

Tomorrow I will take the patho exam and go in for a bird flu vaccination check-up. I am also going with my boyfriend David to finally meet his best friend. (Interesting side-note: his best friend’s name is Barry. My other brother’s name is Barry. David has a brother named Chris. My dad’s name is Chris. Weird.)

Saturday I am actually foregoing the chance to see Anne Lamott speak and Carmen is taking my ticket. I am saddened, but instead, I am traveling with my parents to the wonderful city of Lubbock, TX to see my brother Barry perform in the spring play, To Kill A Mockingbird. (Second interesting side-note: They have a black guy playing the role of Atticus Finch. Kind of changes the whole dynamic, don’t you think?) I have seen all of Barry’s college plays and I don’t want to ruin the tradition. Also, I don’t get to see him much and I jump at the chance. Plus, with all that time in the car, I think I will get a lot more studying done than if I stayed home.

Next week I have three finals: Monday – Gerontolgy; Tuesday – Pharmacology; Thursday – Adult Healthcare II. The last one is the most important and the one that I am actually nervous about.

One year from now I will practically be an RN. That’s so crazy.

    From Mom:

    I feel honored that you are going with us to Lubbock instead of to hear/see Anne Lamott. Re: Interesting side-note: What are those theater people thinking?!? It’s definitely revisionist history. Looking forward to Friday . . . .

    I get sad when I forget about your new blog… but then I remember and I catch up. Loved the Nickel Creek one. You said it all. It was truly amazing.
    Anne Lamott…that’s the lady that wrote Traveling Mercies, right? I have yet to find that book, Barnes and Nobles failed me.
    I like that you have Wordless wednesdays, that’s catchy, and fun cause I get to see pics. :)
    Good luck on all your test! Have a great weekend.

    (that was a very interesting side-note, indeed)
