    1. Go to the bathroom when I have the urge.
    2. Eat hot food.
    3. Return two years' worth of phone calls and emails.
    4. Shave my legs.

    I'm with you...shaving my legs is on the top of my list of things to do once I graduate!

    I am not a student, but I will tell you what I did do once I graduated.....

    Cried, I was so happy it was over, all the emotions and stress just came pouring out.
    Bought my hubby a 4 wheeler, he deserved one for being such a great support for me.
    Took my daughter out of school for a day and had a full day of anything she wanted to do
    Got a massage
    Went shopping
    Watched TV for hours and hours

    Me, too! I was so glad to see weather cold enough that wearing long pants is necessary. It was funny during my first semester of Fundamentals; every time we would do an exam on a fellow student, it was obvious NOBODY was shaving. After the first few weeks, people finally stopped apologizing for it:chuckle

    1. Get a tattoo!
    2. Lose that weight I gained in nursing school, and then some...
    3. Read all those books I've been wanting to read, but ignored since I had to read my textbooks instead.
    4. ...get working on my BSN, MSN and maybe eventually a PhD (so, I'll be in school forever )
    5. Have a FUN day with all my nursing school buddies that doesn't involve studying.

    Assessment class is actually the only reason I *did* shave. I usually never think to do it when I'm in the shower otherwise.

    When I graduate a year from this Friday, I plan to:

    1. Take and pass the NCLEX
    2. Start my new job
    3. Buy a new car (finally!)
    4. Hopefully get engaged/married to my honey
    5. Buy a puppy since I'll actually be home sometimes and the puppy will know who I am

    1. Get a boob job. The almost A isn't working for me.
    2. Clean the house. No, HIRE someone to clean the house.
    3. Sell my ol' faithful car, and get a new one.
    4. Enjoy four days off a week. Until I get bored and go per diem some of those days at the hospital.

    1. SHAVE MY LEGS!!! I shaved them the other day for the first time in a month and it will probably be another month before I shave again!
    2. Move--- somewhere, anywhere else!
    3. Get a puppy
    4. Save some money

    I kinda like this dreaming of a life after nursing school. At one point in my life, I vaguely remember doing things like sleeping and visiting family.

    1. taking a vacation with my family......prob Disney
    2. Finishing home improvements and selling this old house
    3. Building/buying a new home
    4. having the security of a two income family
