Summer session classes just started this past Monday, and I already feel wiped out!
I'm taking an 8-wk Microbio class, to be followed by a 5-wk A&P II class before I'm finished with prereqs and off to start to my ABSN program in the Fall.
I have my first test in Microbio this coming Tuesday (after just ONE wk of class!) and the professor is intense! Not to mention the fact that I'm already at a disadvantage because I'm in a highler level Microbio class than I should be. Due to low enrollment in, and the cancellation of, my originally scheduled class, I was forced to take whatever Microbio I class was available in order to complete the prereqs in time to start my program. What the heck have I gotten myself into!??? I earned my first Bachelor's degree at a school that operates on quarter systems, so I'm used to the quick turnover of courses. However, during that degree I wasn't taking sciences lol!
Of course it can be done, but working full-time and trying to incorporate workouts and healthy eating is NOT helping. Up at 5am, at work by 7:30a, off work by 4p, on the road to classes for an hr and 15mins, class and lab from 5:30p-8:05p, and then a 40 min drive home to do it all over again, 4x a week...and somewhere in there, I have to find the time to study, do homework, workout, clean, prep meals and fundraise to finance my nursing degree (bye bye weekends!
) Anyone else out there feeling the pressure this Summer? If so, just know that we're all in the struggle together! This is only the beginning! Be encouraged everyone.
