Halfway done!

Posted

SO . . .

I'm in a better place than I was last month when I was barely functioning. I am one week away from taking my second semester final, and I feel decent about it. I had a heavier load than most this semester. Pretty excited to be out for the summer though. I got into an internship for the summer, so that's exciting.

Right now, I'm dealing with excruciating pain coming from my weird ass wisdom teeth, and with finals coming up, I can't really spare a day off. So getting these stupid things out will have to wait a while.

I mean seriously, what is the point in wisdom teeth? All they do is make your mouth hurt and cost you hundreds of dollars to get them taken out? Do they even serve a purpose? Has anybody been able to keep their wisdom teeth? Just ignorant.

Anyway...

My relationship is doing somewhat better. When you're in nursing school, trying to maintain a strong relationship is work in itself, but it is possible. I honestly did not think we were going to make it this far into the program at first, but here we are, halfway done and still at it.

If you are in a relationship while doing something as stressful as nursing school, communication is key! You have to talk to them and let them know how it is. When you have 3 classes and 3 tests to study for and a 12 hour clinical and have to work 16 hour shifts on the weekends, you don't really have time to have "date night" like you used to, and that is OKAY! You are trying to better yourself, and achieve your dreams, and if your SO can't understand that, then they weren't meant for you anyway.

And it might be a little difficult at first to get them to understand that, but if they want to be in your life, they will understand.

This is one of the most difficult times in my life right now, and a lot of things that I would love to do are put on hold, due to studying or due to clinical or due to homework. But having a good support system is what motivates me to keep going. Knowing somebody is there that wants you to succeed is a nice reminder that I can do this.

Every day is one step closer to your goal.

Keep that in mind.

Be safe & study hard.

Good luck!
