Hey everyone, I have been stressing over this semester now for the past few weeks ever since it started like five weeks ago and now I have my act totally together. I have been figuring out ways I can study without much interference for those of you with kids in nursing school you know exactly what I am talking about. I get out of class at noon 4 days a week I am only in class till four on Tuesdays and then wedensdays I have day classes from 800-1200 and a night class from 600-840 and the rest of the week it is from 800-1200 but now I know that the days I get out on noon I will stay at school till 400 or 445 at the latest and study then pick my little girl up from pre-school and not even think about the books again until 900 at the earilest and try to get my little girl to bed by 845 (easier said than done) and then study more at night from 900-1200 at the latest every night expect friday night. It is time to stop being so lazy and stop worrying about getting 8 hours of sleep a night because I finally realize in order to make it through nursing school getting a good nights sleep is impossible. Hey it will only be 2 years then I can get back on a semi-normal schedule again.
I been so fatigued and tired lately that I been going to bed before 10:00 every night. I am now on a multivitamin with Iron because I am anemic I know I am really bad with getting plenty of Iron-fortified food. Actually my whole diet is crappy. I start a good one and then 3 months later I am back to junk food again and one meal a day and that is dinner. I was told that I was anemic and was taking a vitamin for a while and then I stop but now I need to start again and keep taking it. Another thing that got me so motivated was the fact that I received my loan statement yesterday and at the end of my junior year in May I will have 14,565.63 of loans to pay back. Yes that is almost fifteen thousand dollars and there is no way it is going to waste.
I feel so upbeat and energetic all of sudden it is like this morning I just got out of bed and without much thought I am like I need to change. My grades are decent I have a 3.0 gpa right now and for me it's like how come it is not higher it is because I am not trying hard enough and it took me a while to figure it out. I have not earned anything lower than a C for my general education and so far in nursing school all my grades have been B's but no A's yet for official grades in nursing school and I am working really hard toward that so I don't have very many loans for senior year and earn scholarships Well got to go now.
Take care everyone
