My day in the life will entail this: MY FIRST DAY - 9/4/2012
0500 - Wake up - Hit the snooze button once, click on the TV and watch for 15 minutes as I force my eyes open to wake myself up before slugging out of bed. No, I am NOT a morning person!
0515 - Bathroom - Guess.
0517 - Breakfast - Head downstairs to start the coffee maker and make some breakfast. Usually 2 slices of cinnamon raisin toast with coffee. Feed the cats and dog if my husband hasn't already. Then, head back upstairs and turn on the PC, eat, and surf the internet for a bit.
0530 - Shower - (Censored) - too much info
0545 - Getting dressed, makeup, and hair done. This part may be extremely shortened on rushed days. But, normally I like to take my time getting ready in the morning, or at any time.
0730 - Leave the house - I grab my book bag and purse and head out the door. I hop in the car and drive to school. Depending on how my morning is going, I may stop at the local coffee shop for an extra cup of coffee.
0750 - Arrive at school - Walk down several flights of stairs to the nursing school building. Once inside, walk down another 2-3 flight of stairs to get to my classroom. I find a seat and sit down and try to get comfortable and relax. I get out my books and supplies. I turn off my phone. I chat with my neighbor students sitting next to me until class starts.
0800 - Orientation - Apparently this is when I receive my syllabus and introductions are made.
0900 - Lecture - Today's topics are discussed. Sometime, during the day I should get an hour lunch, and 10 minute breaks are given every 50 minutes or so of lecture.
1500 - Leave school - Class is over. I pack up my books and things and head out of the classroom. I walk up 2-3 flights of stairs and exit the building and continue to walk up several, leg cramping, back aching, flights of stairs to get to my car. Now, out of breath and my muscles full of lactic acid.... I drive home. Soooo much fun parking on a damn hill! I jest. :)
1520 - Arrive at home - Walk in the door, drop my bags off on the kitchen table, head to the fridge for a bottle of water and a snack, head upstairs to the PC room and eat, relax, and surf the internet for awhile. Once I realize I'm spending too much time doing nothing, I head downstairs and bring up my bag of books and purse. I then begin to study until it is time for dinner.
1800 - Dinner - I hope its something good.
1830 - Back to studying - I study until it is time for bed, whenever that is. After I'm done studying, I pack up my stuff and get my bags ready for the next day.
2100 - Get ready for bed. Wash my face, brush my teeth, change my clothes, have a snack, and head to bed to watch some TV before falling asleep. As I lay in bed, I run over today's activities in my head, and also think about the next day. Eventually, I will fall asleep.
2200 - Sleep.
You can pretty much repeat this day for all of my lecture days at school. In my third week, I will begin lab and clinicals. My schedule changes a bit but its pretty much the same thing. Now, I will have 2-3 days of lecture, a lab day, and a clinical day for my first semester of nursing school. All of it, Monday thru Friday from about 0700 to 1500.
