Doing well. Managing to get massive amounts of work done. I'm struggling a bit this semester not only because it's my senior year of undergrad and because I have more work than I ever thought possible, having accidentally saved all my advanced level lit courses for my last two semesters, but because I have a terrible case of senioritis.
My problem is that I'm only finishing my degree so that I can enroll in the second degree accelerated nursing programme. I don't want to pursue my English and French careers any longer. This makes it even more difficult to stay focused.
Fortunately, though, I'm halfway through my second-to-last semester and I've got very good grades. After this, I only have three classes left. Then, on to pre-nursing! Thank God! At this time next year, I'll be a pre-nursing student, and this thought keeps me going.
This week was crazy. I had a molar surgically removed without general anesthesia, so I was awake while the dentist broke part of my jaw--yikes! I had to take a Vicodin a day Mon-Thur, but I'm off it now, and feeling better.
This week is my "Spring" break and I've been spending it studying like crazy. I wasn't able to work out as much I wanted to on account of the meds, and I'll have to save my job-hunting for the weekend, but all in all, I'm grateful and happy. Tomorrow I get paid, and will see friends I've missed for a while. Then, I'll go to work, come home, and study. Sunday will be spent studying, and applying for jobs, and Monday, will be spent studying, again.
All I have to do is get through the next two months of class and then Summer begins! It'll be warm and sunny, and I'll take one quick class, leaving me with only two classes to take in Autumn, and plenty of time for an internship.
I can do it! I know I can!
I am grateful for:
My family and and friends
Summer coming up
All of my talents and strengths
A better job with more money
