New Semester

Hello, my loyal readers.
I know, I know. I have been terribly neglectful of all of you. If you were children and I was your crack whore mother, the state would take you away from me.
(Please don't hold me responsible for the previous analogy. I am tired and slightly delirious.)
The semester stated two weeks ago and it is starting to get pretty intense. We have our first nursing exam this week and I have assignments in both my sociology class. Here is my course list for this semester:
  • Nursing Fundamentals
  • Introduction to Sociology
  • Contemporary Social Problems

As nice at it is to have only three classes this semester, the Nursing Fundamentals class is 6 credit hours (translates into 10 contact hours) plus an addition 3 hours in the practice lab (which we schedule on our own time). Yikes.

And my song of the moment: Click Here for 40's-style Jazzy Goodness

A New Beginning

♥Tomorrow is my first day of nursing school.♥
Is it naive of me to be completely excited?
I had orientation on Friday and a couple of second year students came to talk to us about the program. One of them said that getting into the program was the easy part.
This might be a little harder than I thought.

Stethoscope, hemostats, scissors and blood pressure cuff (sphygmomanometer) $
Uniforms $$
Shoes $$
Textbooks $$$$
Tuition $$$$

My bank account is screaming for mercy. The savings account is in quite a sad state as well. Let's pray no major disasters happen and mid-September (when loan and scholarship payments are issued) gets here fast.

Woah. That's, like, deep and junk.

A bartender with a short pour is like a porn star with a short penis.
It just doesn't work.

Thus says that midnight philosopher.
You're welcome.
