Day 2 was better, but as expected, long! Left the house at 7:30 this morning and just walked in at 10 PM.
Lab / Clinical skills looks like it will be cool. Heehee, those mannequins are funny lookin. They're all lying in their hospital beds partially covered with blankets, just like real patients, and each time I walked in the room from break (it was a lecture day not hands-on day) they kept catching me off-guard out of the corner of my eye. I'd think for a millisecond
there are PEOPLE in those beds... and they don't look well! LMAO There's a row of 5 or so little hospital 'rooms' separated by drapes, and each room has a bed with a mannequin in it.
Big long break between that class and pharmacology, which, so far, doesn't seem as horrid as I'd expected. Not that it won't be hard, but I like the teacher and he seems so relaxed that a lot of the stress is reduced.
Still frustrated by the TV classes. Find myself getting cranky when I can't hear what someone in another location is saying, whether it's because they forget to key the microphone or just a bad connection I'm not sure. I'm sure I'll get used to it. I even asked a question on the mic tonight (the instructor is in another town). Impressive, huh! LOL
Got to know a pretty good portion of my classmates today, think I'll target some of the others tomorrow. With only 19 of us I'm feeling eager to learn everyone's names.
I'm way excited by and for this program. But I'm also dog tired so I'm headed to bed, and back at it again tomorrow bright and early. G'nite all.
