When do you start schoo... and what do you want done BEFORE you start?

  1. Ok everyone... When does your fall semester begin, and what do you want to accomplish before you go back?

    Our school begins on September 2nd...

    AND... My one accomplishment will be to have the house SPICK and SPAN before that date. I always feel better going back knowing my house was cleaned in September...the next time it gets cleaned may be in December AFTER FINALS!!

    :roll

    I start August 25. Only one thing has to get done before I start back - get our bathroom finished. We had to tear it apart and redo the walls and floors. They were literally falling apart so we couldn't put it off. This has to be finished! Everything else I would like to get done would be just a bonus.

    August 25th

    I hope to have my house in better shape, an organized home desk. My car's engine light being taken care of. Getting some new sheets for my bed.

    Start August 25th - Get organized home, car, desk, et. , go shopping for coffee (need plenty of it). Read an Echo Heron Book and get plenty sleep as much as possible because once classes begin I will suffer from sleep deprivation.


    Sleep deprivation r/t nursing school manifested by yawning a lot and dreams of failing.

    Two weeks until summer semester is done, then fall starts Sept 2nd like everyone else!

    I plan to spend my week off working at the hospital (gotta make some money because I won't be able to work much at all this fall), cleaning, and maybe finishing decorating one of the bathrooms that is half done.

    I start on Monday. (the 11th) My list of stuff to do before school started included cleaning the house top to bottom. I have got a lot done but I wish I had of worked on it more.

    Sleep, eat, shop...every girl's dream!! I only have a week off in between semesters so will have to pack in the relaxation. Ha!

    Hope to read something fun. My sis recommends Prey by M. Crichton; bro says "Timeline" is good. Hmm...I'm still trying to finish "The Glorious Cause" which I started in the spring.

    I start Sept. 2nd...I'm only taking 2 classes this semester. They are both in the evening (A & P 2 and Psych 102). I'm just trying to get my dd's organized and the house too. Now whenever I decide to officially start nursing school....that'll be a different story.

    I start back Aug 27th and right now I would just like to get a letter in the mail letting me know that I did receive a scholarship so I can go ahead and pay for school. Early registration ends Aug 15th and I want to be registed by then. Other than that.....like everyone else, I just need to make sure my house is in order. I don't want to put much on my daughter. She is so very helpful. (11 yrs old, cooks, cleans AND helps me study) Gotta love that girl of mine.

    Sep 3rd here. Hope to get moved into new house before then. The thought of moving after school starts back up is not a good thing!!

    August 25th here... I'm registered and have all my books and other junk. I've pretty much got things around the house done. I try to keep it up. I'm in the process of reading "House of God". Almost finished with it; then, I'll start Intensive Care, then Condition Critical and finally Tending Lives. That will wrap me up with pleasure reading. I'll have to hit the nursing books....

    Good Luck everyone!!!!

    Aug. 18 for me.

    I got the carpets cleaned, the outside of the house-washed. Washed walls in living room, bedroom. Want to get the storage room (aka-junk room) cleaned, but don't know if I'll get to it. LOL.
