Feeling down about finals week...

  1. I am missing church again today (havent been in 6 wks due to clinicals and such) and my son's play that they are in--DH is there and they all seem to understand (thank god for camcorders). I feel sooooooooooooooooo GUILTY!!!!!

    I haven't had any time to study for finals due to clinicals, tests, class, etc etc so this is my day to do it (we have a clinical wrap up day from 8-3 tomorrow, finals review all day Tues, and finals wens, thurs and friday). My thinking is that I just have to do this for now so I can make it and move on. We have to get 75% on our finals to pass the semester so it doesn't matter that I am walking in there with high B's and an A. I have to pull a 75%--and they dumped all this new stuff on us last week. AGH!

    I am so overwhelmed and tired of missing out on my LIFE!! I know this is short term pain for long term gain...but its still sucks. :icon_sad:

    I guess I need some sympathy or empathy or something. I feel like a crappy mom, jerk of a friend, horrible housekeeper and I am sick of fast food. I am so sick of just being a nursing student. I love it, I LOVE nursing, but school is horrid, too! LOL!

    Ok, only two more semesters...I can do it, right?:uhoh21: :uhoh21:

    You are not alone. When I was in school, that seemed like my whole life. With 2 semesters left you can see the light! You can and will do it! Good luck!

    right there with you. I realize my children's lives are blowing by and I just have to sit on the sideline and watch. My son keeps asking when can we put up Christmas stuff, when are you gonna make fudge.. and I look at him with eyes half open and say" let me make it to the 20th, please, just a little bit more...
    You can do it!!!!!!!!!! we will get there. Then its break, dont get dressed the first day off, eat ice cream from the container, and veg out in front of the TV.. your time off will do wonders! cept its always tooooo short!
