Ok ok ok so really before all that, I'm gonna be happy to read a book non school related. Gonna spend a whole lot of time just chillaxin! I already spend most of my time with my son and study when he's in bed or study when Daddy is home too. So I plan on doing that even more!

1. passing the NCLEX.

3. Going on a LONG 2 week vacation.
4. Staying low expense to pay my dad off the 20,000 I owe him.
5. Look into where I can go locally to get my BSN.
6. work on moving out west.
7. Grow a beard, let my hair get long, and then walk into work in my leather jacket saying "where's my patient? I need to get back on my bike, the damn throttle's stickin again!"

1.find a new career to stress over (heh...kidding!)
2. definitely pay off the debt ( shocker)
3.avoid all white uniforms at all costs.
and inbetween all that, maybe call up some "pre nursing school" friends and see if they remember who i am....
Dec 6, '06Joined: Aug '06; Posts: 24; Likes: 1I love this thread... I am probably going to pick myself up off the floor at graduation from complete exaustion, drive home with a decreased LOC. Give my family the props they deserve for putting up with me when all I ever did was eat, study, use the bathroom, cry, talk about nursing school nonstop and occasionally shower. Then collapse..

Dec 9, '06Joined: Sep '06; Posts: 18; Likes: 1- finally read the many books i have bought over the past 2 years, but never had the time to actually read.
- reconnect with some of my non-nursing friends that i have seemingly drifted apart from during nursing school(side note: isn't it intersting how friends seem to become divided into 2 groups; nursing friends and non-nursing friends?)
-make sure to keep in close contact with my nursing school friends(or, more appropriately, nursing school family). we have been through way too much over the past 2 years to lose touch now.
-actually try dating again. that part of my life has been on hold pretty much for the past 2 years(though nursing school isn't the only reason for that). i think, that at 25, i am finally ready for "grown up" dating. and by that, i mean, trying to meet guys with actual relationship potential, not just hot guys in bands.
-pay off my credit card debt. i never thought that it would weigh on my mind so much, but it does. i keep thinking "i owe mbna $5000 and i really have nothing to show for it. what did i spend that money on, anyway?"
-be smarter about my financial situation and save money for a new car.
-finally get a dog. my dog ran away about 3 years ago and i never found her. i always wanted another one, but nursing school just did not seem like the time to get a new puppy.
