  2. Blood Sugars?

  6. What was the first thing to go?
    Lol, okay I should definitely have said that my ACTUAL #1 thing to go is reading for pleasure. I normally read TONS - when a heavy-duty semester isn't in session. I miss reading, but I just do it...

  7. What was the first thing to go?
    The first thing (and ideally the only thing) that goes out the window at the start of a semester is my need for a clean house. It irritates me when it's dirty, but I can stand it for a little while...

  11. How long is your commute to nursing school?
    I drive 75 miles (1 hr 15 min) each way to school, 5 days a week. Clinicals add 25-40 miles one way onto the trip depending on which location I'll be at. They are all, of course, further away for me...
