It seems that school has put some additional weight on me and oh do I feel it. Being fat and turning 50 doesn't sound like two things that I can allow to happen together. So for the summer, the books are out and the bicycle, the beach and weight training are in. I'm trading in my whites for bare feet walking in the surf except for the one 12 hour shift I work a week as a tech.
When I come back in the fall, I hope to be a lean mean OB student machine. I'll also have a second med-surg rotation for the second half of the fall. Theory will taking on 8 hours a week focusing on pathophysiology. There will be two required personal wellness courses (PE) as well. One is theory and the other is doing. Apparently our school is focused on nurse heal thyself.
Have a great summer whether you're in the books or working or just hanging about.

Getting my CNA certification through a new job and looking forward to a full course-load in the Fall. That should get me through my pre-reqs and onto real nursing school. Yikes.

Needless to say, I am enjoying my time off while I can because I'm really going to be busy when I go back. Then I'll have a month off and then it will be back to school for the Fall.
