Started buying books for Nursing I today!!!!!

  1. Figured if I buy them in two or three trips I can actually carry them all without a wagon, 7 required books today that totaled $408.00.....have 3 more required to get and then there are 7 optional that I am going to pick and choose from....I have 600 on account right now(minus the 408) for books so I'm gonna use all of it......anyway I have this pile of books sitting on my bedside table and I smile everytime I look at them,LOL!!!!!

    Not as much anyway......I have wanted to do this for ten years and finally I can......worked my butt off to get pre-reqs out of the way so I am gonna try my best to stay positive about it all! It has been my dream for a while and finally it's here........

    Wow, that sounds both exciting and EXPENSIVE!! Although I understand your wanting to look through them...don't over do's your winter break and next month this time you'll be knee deep in your books.

    Me, I'm planning on reading a novel or two....I need to relax!

    Yeah, I wanted this too, and now I'm about ready to burn my darn books. If I have to do another care plan or read about some funky disease, I'm gonna scream! Oh wait, after Monday, I have almost a month off. WOOHOO!!!! But, I'm still gonna put those books on my shelf and not look at them. AT ALL!!!!

    Before I started I was all excited about my books too. They just don't have that same feeling after almost two years of looking at them. You just want them to go away...

    I'm not even gonna OPEN them until the full class syllabus(that we have to buy) hits the shelf. Once I get it I will check and recheck that every book is the correct one before opening them,LOL. We have our first day of class on a clinical day though and have to have our first week of objectives completed before that day so I will have to open them right after New Years.....if I do it too soon though I won't remember!
