Stress ball!!!

Ok so I'm officially even more of a stressball than before. I'm not much a fan of the end of the semester when teachers pile on everything possible they didn't get to earlier in the semester. I feel like everyday I have a new thing to do. But I guess it will prepare me for nursing school wich starts in 19!!! I never thought this day would happen.
The start of my 14 month world wind nursing school experience is fastly approaching and it honestly scares me a bit. I'm scared of the friendships and relationships that will be put on hold. I already feel that many people are upset with me and disappointed in my lack of ability to be in their lives right now and for all of that I'm so sorry. I promise I will be the friend everyone remembers come August of 2011!!! I just hope all of those people who I am letting down know how much they mean to me and how much I miss them. Adam and I are so over me being in school that we could cry(ok the crying part is more me). But in the end I just have to tell myself it will be worth it. The road to happiness isn't always easy but it's always worth it in the end. This is what I'm going to have to live by now...

Oh the joys of being a College Student

So this week has been a bit of a struggle for me. First of all Easter was wonderful! We had Adam's family in for the weekend and it was so nice to spend some quality time with his parents and grandparents. His grandparents broke in our new sleeper sofa we got with them in mind. (Grandma struggles going up stairs). But anyways it was a wonderful weekend and it was nice not to be the ones to travel.
However in all the Easter festivities I forgot to do an assignment for one of my online classes. Looks like I'm out 20 points but no sense in stressing over it now. But no worries I got this weeks assignment done already!
But anyways this week a friend of mine and I decided to start working out and I can say it is working. With new renewed vigor I've started my diet once again. I have officially gained 10 lbs since being back in school and it is just not acceptable. So I've focused on getting healthy and working out. and I'm proud to say that I'm down 3 lbs this week! YAY!
But now on to the bad stuff. Wednesday I went to lunch with my cousin who is about to pop any day with what I am sure is a beautiful baby girl. We had an awesome 2 hour lunch. I really miss seeing her and having her a part of my almost daily life. Well after lunch I worked out and had class. During class my nose decided to clog, my head decided to hurt as well as my throat. Now I had a huge exam that I had to study for later in the evening so this was no so welcome adjustment to my health! Needless to say I was up til 3 am studying and then got up at 6 to take the exam at 8. I was exhausted by the end of the exam but there were only 4 questions I wasn't positive on! YAY! But after the exam I went home and tried to nap, and that was not successful. Due to my ill health I was forced to call into work. (not a good idea to be sick in health facility). But then I didn't end up getting to bed til midnight because of my ill failed attempt to nap but I did sleep until 11 this morning and feel 50% better.
So I've decided that being sick is horrible. Being sick when you have a crap ton of school work to do is even worse! Thank goodness Adam is making me wait on kids, I can't imagine what it would be like!!! But the good news is I'm feeling better and am on top of my school work...who knows how long this will last!
have a blessed weekend all!
