I now have semester two complete. Medical Surgical Nursing 1 was probably my favorite class, but at the end of the semester that class was about to cause me to have a psychiatric break. I think I cried no less than three times. The tests were insanely difficult, but I passed with a B. Psychiatric Nursing was annoying. I pretty much know that I will not be going into that field when I graduate. I passed that class with a B, but it was hard fought. I also took a class on Gerontological Nursing; I made an A in that class.
During that semester I was beginning to question whether I was experiencing cardiovascular issues, because I would experience chest pain that would make it difficult to breathe at times, but as I decompressed after the semester, I have not experienced any chest pain. Anxiety can really mess your body up. This is true.
Now I have a whole summer in front of me that is already going by way too fast. I made a collage of some of the highlights from the last three weeks...
The top row is from mother's day. I visited my sister as soon as school was out with my mom. That was awesome fun. I got to play Yahtzee with my grandma and son, and the steak and shake pictures were from a lunch date with the family.
Goals for the summer include losing the 10 lbs that I put on from being so sedentary during nursing school... that's slowly coming along. I have been working out every day on my elliptical. I also plan on doing some LIGHT studying to keep me fresh for next semester.
Tomorrow night I am going to a women's event at my church. It's a pinterest party and I'm so excited.
June 15th is my birthday! UGH. I'm getting so old. It will be number 36 for me! (insert shocked face emoji).
June 26th-July 4th is going to be vacation time in San Antonio, Texas. We will be spending time with my brother and sister in law for a week, and then going to Corpus Christi for a family reunion. I'm really looking forward to that.
Before I know it I will be back for my third semester of nursing school. Next semester is a couple of brutal online informatics classes, Pediatrics, and Obstetrics. But, I'm not going to focus on that until I have to. Right now, I 'm enjoying my sanity and my family again.
I hope you all have big fun plans this summer.
