Stalking the email, the mailbox, the mail truck, the college website - page 3

So the waiting for the letter was torturous. You know that feeling....... I woke up anxious, I went to bed anxious, I dreamed of showing up for my first day at nursing school naked and being told "Go home, you so obviously do NOT... Read More

    Congrats on getting In!! I also am waiting on a lot of information from my program. So far I know that our orientation is the Saturday before classes start, and I'm registered so I sort of know my schedule minus skills lab/clinical obligations, but all the "other" stuff needs to come soon! A little over 2 months to get everything accomplished, but some of that time is already blocked off to have some sort of a life and a little vacay time without worrying about things to do!

    Congrats on getting in! I also did my share of mailbox stalking. We applied in early March and didn't find out until late May/early June. I still feel all crazy because there is a lot to do.. Have faith! We'll get it all done in time and everything will work out.

    Congrats to you all! Sounds like many of us are in the same boat and the overwhelming anxiety and anticipation of future nurses could power a third world nation for years! People talk to me here at home, I'm like "Shh! Zip it! I'm checking my college email for the hundredth time today, I need to concentrate!" Psssh..... nuthin'...... Oh well, maybe when my Fundamentals of Nursing book gets here I can at least concentrate on something else. Excuse me while I go check the post office box...... again.

    I just wanted to post to tell you all that 3 years ago when I started nursing school I was the same way. Every semester I would be excited to have one class done but so ready to start the next one. Until the last couple of semesters. Then I just wanted to be done. The time comes and goes so fast. One day I was a student at the college looking at all the nursing students walking in their scrubs and wishing so much I could be one. Then wishing so much I could be finishing my last class and graduating.
    Enjoy your time as a student and try to soak up as much as you can. But also try to take time out for yourself also. Nursing school is hard and stressful! When you have a break even if it is just a small holiday break, try to do some things that make you happy. As nice as it sounds to get ahead on school work, it is possible to burn yourself out. My last semester I was so tired of being in school all the time and all the papers and clinicals and everything else I wondered if I would even make it through the semester. But I did and actually took my NCLEX-RN yesterday. Stopped at 75 questions. Hopefully I will find out tomorrow by quick results that I passed.
    I am rambling. Anyway enjoy your time in school but taking time out for yourself is very important too. I wish you all the best of luck in your new endeavor!
    Oh mah GAH! I'm so nervous for you! Let us know and praying it was good news!

    LOL! Just you wait. That thing is MASSIVE. It weighs more than my Maine Coon and probably has bigger fangs. I don't know if we have the same book or not. However, mine is 1600 pages with a font size that seems less than 10. We were given a list of books to get. They didn't tell us which ones were for which class but I started collecting anyway. I also have fancy highlighters and am trying to create a "study sanctuary".

    I cried hysterically when I got my letter. No one got it. I am plotting a study schedule already as well as a trying out a house cleaning chart I've found.

    Oh mercy! Bigger than your Maine Coon with bigger fangs! I bet you are right too! I got my study sanctuary done, insofar as I scooped everything off the desk, put it in a box, and polished the desk with lemon oil. My back will be to the rest of the room while I am studying at the desk, so I won't see the bunk beds in there with mismatched sheets, or the piles of discarded electronic equipment, or the bags of clothes that will one day need to go to the thrift store....... just thinking about all that stuff gives me the willies. Maybe I should expend some of this pent up angst on the study sanctuary..........

    I have been there also. I gave myself baby steps to purge the clutter. When I had to go out of the house I made a rule to take one full donation bag with me. Be ruthless. Someone probably needs or would love that stuff. Also, there is nothing wrong with mismatched sheets.

    LOL! This sounds like my Funds book- 1600+ pages and it weighs, according to Amazon, 8 pounds!

    I would weigh it but it probably bites.
