    Please! Please! Help me! I'm overwhelmed! Prerequisites

    Hey I feel your pain. I just took A&P 121 and 122 both in the summer!! It is a year long thing and I did it in 14 weeks. I don't know how but I did. We were not expected to remember everything. I had a hard time studying with working 35+ hours a week, my sisters new baby in the house and my brothers 1 year old getting ready to move away and I wanted to spend time with her and on top of that it is SUMMER!!! Believe me I gave the kids next door playing loudly in there pool lots of dirty looks!! haha I get distracted EASY too. My best tips: 1. Study at school as much as you can, on my days off of work I stayed at school from 8am-6pm some days till 10pm. --Crazy I know but thats what worked for me best! Outside of school i didn't get much alone time to study. 2. Study with classmates they help out when you don't understand something. 3. Chew gum, keeps things flowing and helped with the distractions. 4. Tell everyone around you (this was the hardest for me, I am a social butterfly) SORRY but I won't be able to hang out all summer!! --Yeah its that important to me. Yeah I had a lot of friends that thought I was like sooo mad at them but when they seen how important it was to me even my work let up a little me. Looking back now I wonder how I did it. It was the hardest classes I had taken this far. And I did really well I surprized myself! Would I do it again? Give up another summer?? Was it worth it? YES, YES, and YES!!!! Good luck!! Have fun it was a great class I loved what I learned.

    Why is bile green??

    I have a question Can anyone tell me why bile is green? They told us everything else about bile except that. I have a test coming up and our prof told us that'd be a question he'd ask.

    Well it has been along time since I have gotten back here. You'll never guess--I decided to go into Radiology! I think that I am WAY to emotional for nursing. I am starting classes back up in the summer. I'm really happy about my choice. :) Thanks again for all your input. It was a very hard decision for me!

    spooky spooky spooky

    2004 was not the best year for my family and I. We lost four family members and three friends of the family. I think the most spooky one was the day my Grandfather passed. He was the first of the seven to pass that year. My Dad was the last to talk to him that day he went. My Dad told me that Grandpa kept telling him that he wanted to go, my Dad said that he talked to him for awhile and that he was very coharent with his wording. A little later he started to drift off to sleep and started to talk a little stranger saying stuff to my Dad like "look isn't beutiful, would you'd look at that it looks like a picture almost, all the pretty flowers. I have never seen such a thing, do you see it son?" My Dad looked where Grandpa was pointing and seen nothing. They had not given my Grandpa any drugs nor was he on any life support because he wanted to go. My Dad just told me thats what he kept saying, to look at "it" and "it was nothing like he had ever seen". Then he went in to a deep sleep. My Dad went home because he had been up at the hosptial for hours and I went to sit and talk with my Grandpa he was asleep the whole time. My Uncle, cousin, Grandma and I were there when he passed. I had never cryed so hard as I did that night.

    This Tuesday I got to shadow at my best friends mom's hospital!! She is the Clinical Manager at a fairly large hospital. It was so cool! I really think that I would enjoy to nurse!! I was not very sure before but now I am pretty sure. I just really need to work on a few things like...my math skills (never have been good at that) and I am REALLY sensitive. I am really glad that she gave me the chance to do it! The only thing I am up set about is that I want to be a nurse's tech as I am going through school and all this time she could have given me a job. But now she is moving away to TX and I'm pretty much lost my chance. I am trying to find a job on my own, it is hard! If any of you know of a tech job that is open PLEASE let me know!! Thanks :)

    I have not yet had a chance to go and shadow. I will be on Tuesday. I am very excitd to go. My friends mom is the Head Nurse at a hospital in the area. I have been sooooo busy with school and with work!! Then trying to get in touch with her is another story! But I cannot wait to go. I have been trying to apply at the hospital just to do desk work. I want to at least get in and see if I can get a better idea. I am very good with office, computer, and human resorces. So I will let you all know how things go on Tuesday, Sorry I didn't get back with ya sooner, but I think you all know what its like to be work, going to school, and trying to have a life outside of the both. Thanks all for the information!! I think I might do that Toddbe if it does not work out!:)

    I got a DUI

    Drinking and driving is NEVER a good idea people joke about it all the time when there drunk. That's to bad it happend to you but mjlrn97 is right: "it might be the best thing that ever happened to you. You haven't killed anyone yet. You haven't ruined any lives (including your own) yet. You haven't even harmed yourself beyond repair yet. Count yourself very fortunate to have been caught before anything truly terrible happens, and then resolve to never, EVER drive again if you've had so much as one beer." That's how my sisters bestfriend died, why my cousin can't walk, and how my cousin got ran and his arm broken. All by drunk drivers.----Any MANY more people who lost there lives.

    Thank you everyone!!! I am going to job shadow next week with my friend's mom. She has been in nursing for over 40 years. I hope this will give me a chance to see what it is I really want to do. I asked my school counselors and she has been no help. The past few weeks I have been going around asking everyone's in put. You guys have been a good source of information for me. I know that I really want a career in the medical field I just need to see where I fit in. Thanks again!!!! :)

    spooky spooky spooky

    Here is my story, after having read all of everyone else's Very scary stories!!!!! My sister's best friend in high school was very popular. He was so friendly to everyone. She was very close to him as all best friends are. They hung out all the time did everything together. After they graduated she didn't see him as much as she use to. He started doing drugs and hanging out with the "wrong crowds". He would come in the mall where I worked and see me. I would talk to other people I knew from working at the mall and everyone seemed to know him. Well my sister worked in the mall to one day he came to see her at work. She had been thinking about him (she had at one point started to like him as more then just a friend) anyways, there was a song she remembered that was playing on the radio that made her think of him. Just then he stopped in to say HI. He was with some of his "new friends" and was in his normal hurry. They talked for a few minutes and then he said he had to go. My sister said to him just before he ran off: "when will I see you again?? I miss you a lot." he said: "don't worry I see you soon." he ran back and gave her a big hug. She thought it was odd that she thought that she would never see him again. But she blew it off. A few weeks later my family and I were visiting my grandparent's house across the state for the weekend. As we were saying our c-ya laters Sunday morning my sister kept looking at our car and getting really freaked out. She kept saying to me "I don't have a good feeling, something really bad is going to happen I know, a bad accident I can see it." She told me this over and over. I was getting freaked and blew it off after a few minutes. We had a 2 1/2 hour drive ahead of us. We got in the car and took off. All the way home we listened to our walkmans and would listen to the radio and tapes back and forth. She would tap my arm and say turn to this station and the song would be playing that she heard last time she seen her best friend. It seemed every time it was over she turned it to another station and it would be on. We heard it like 7x's or better. The next day I went to school and was standing by my locker and one of my good guy friends come up to me and said that it was sad what had happened to one of our friends best friend. I said who? What are you talking about??? Then he said my sister's best friends name and i said what about him??? He said he died Sunday morning in a really bad car accident. I broke down crying and ran to a pay hone and called my mom, who phoned my sister at work she broke down to. At his funeral there were SO MANY people. People from ALL walks of life. And everyone had a wonderful story of how he had touched there life in some way for the better. It was amazing to see. He was a very different person from anyone I had ever met in my life. It was so sad to see such a young life taken so early. Some of us have this idea that he was an angel sent to earth from God and was taken back after starting to be lead down a wrong path. Other odd things happened with his death. He is someone a LOT of people will never forget.

    To nurse or not to nurse?

    I am attending community college and I am not sure what I want to major in. It was Legal Office for along time. A few weeks ago my dad gave me the idea that I should become a nurse. I would like to know what all is involved in Nursing. I would love anyone's in put. Good and bad stories, suggestion, and so forth. I don't mind blood, taking care of people, but I do kind of have a problem with cadavers. Is it that bad once you deal with one? Do you get use to it? Or should I just stick to Legal Office. As you all know with our economy job security is a thing of the past. I think that for me this might be a good future for me because it does offer some job security and I do enjoy helping people. So far what I know (which is bits and pieces) I feel that it would be a good rewarding career for me. Again please feel free to give ANY advice you have, it would help me out a lot! Thanks!!!
