ok now go check it out.........

I wanna share with you the creativeness of my friend.  If you like vampire stories (please don't think Twilight this is NOT the same thing) you may want to check this out.

She is really good and hopefully you will like her stories as much as I like her.  ( <3 ya Hannah!!)

Ok I have something to share with you all.  This semester has been a long, stressful, busy one.  Lots of ups and downs.  You have all been there along the way.  I want to say thank you for that.

The bad news is this, I will not be going forth in this program next semester.  I failed the med/surg class (I know you are thinking WTF?!?!?! you are a med/surg nurse! and let me tell you I am thinking the same thing) and will not be graduating in May.

This is not the end of the road, only a minor setback. I have a couple of choices.  I could reenter the same program next fall and finish out here. Or I can try to get into a couple of other programs that are in the area.  I think I am going to choose the latter.  I am tired of all the games and hoops I have to jump through just to get this far.  (Some of which I have blogged about but some I have not.)  This next semester I will take to regroup and get my head on straight and then I will try again. I promise.

Till then I should have plenty of stories to share with you from working!!

If any of my (former) fellow students are reading this, please know that I am saddened that I will not be graduating with you. I wish you all the best of luck not only next semester but in your career.  You will all do fine, just keep on keeping on!!!!!

Dear Teacher.......

Ok once again, I shall share some insight with you.

We (my classmates and I) have worked hard this semester.  We have tried our best to pass all our tests and complete all our assignments.  We have had a lot of information thrown at us.  We understand that is the nature of the game and we have done our best to accomplish our goal.  Some of us have not made it this far.  We miss them and felt for them knowing how hard they had worked to get to this point. At the same time we were very grateful knowing that we were still in.  Most of us are working in addition to going to school, some of us full time and some part time.  Some of us are parents.  (some single parents, some have spouses as well) We are all siblings, friends, children, coworkers.  My point here is that we are all busy and have full lives even without school in the mix.

We are getting close to the end of the semester and are starting to feel it.  We know that we have very difficult tests to take.  And they are getting closer every day. We have worked hard all semester to get to this point.  We are still getting a tad overwhelmed with all the information we have been given.  We will all be ok but most of us have our little freak out moments now and then.  This week we will be studying hard for the last of our tests. Taking them one at a time. 

My question is this, why would you throw this last assignment on us the last week of finals.  When we asked about it earlier in the year you said it would not be due, now suddenly it is.  The week of finals, we have to spend our time on this assignment. I know that it will help us on boards and may even help with the final exam for the class but we still feel bombarded and tricked. 

We will do the assignment (this will not stop us this close to the midpoint break) but we don't have to like it.  And (I may be a little presumptous speaking for everyone but I will say it anyway) WE DON'T LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you
your student

( The preceding was mostly a tool to vent and let some frustration out so I can complete the mentioned assignment. If you are the teacher or know the teacher whom this post was inspired by please take it with a grain of salt and disregard. Thank you.)

Almost over!!!

Semester is winding down. Finals in a couple weeks. Studying hard. Or at least attempting to.
