Name that rhythm!

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updating, but as you all know, school is hard work! I have studied more than I have in a long time. But I am actually keeping up with the work! I think that I am going to enjoy this semester.

Something that is not being enjoyable about the semester is the girl I carpool with. We have grown apart since last semester. Problem is, she was my support system when I didn't have Phoenix, but he has become my support system now, and that kind of leaves her out of the picture. I have also discovered that we have pretty much nothing in common besides school. There are so many things that our viewpoints are so totally different, and not that that is a problem, but she doesn't even consider my viewpoint. It has gotten to where even talking about grocery shopping is stressful! I am so looking forward to moving so I don't have to carpool with her. And yes, I could just not carpool with her, but it saves me gas money every other week. So, worth it for the financial part, but not for the stressful part. :( I just don't know what to do. We even differ on parts of school. Thing is, I don't think she realizes how it stresses me (which is a good thing since we sit next to each other). It's just frustrating.

This week is my first test in Adult II, so hopefully it will go well. I have been studying like crazy for it, so I feel like I am prepared. We shall see! I hope everyone is doing well, and I miss you guys!

I Miss My Life is that time again! The beginning of a new semester! I have 3 clinicals this semester. Pediatrics, Adult II (Focus on critical care), and crazy people (AKA mental health). It will be an interesting semester. People are already complaining about this and that. I am not thrilled about some things that are going to happen this semester, but nothing I can do about it. I am going to TRY not to complain...that much. So far, I have managed to stay on top of things. Even though I have a 3 day weekend, I am going to spend as much as I can doing some school work. Maybe I will even take my books to the pool to study. :)

I have my pediatric clinical at Scottish Rite. Adult at Parkland. Psych at Millwood (which is all the way in ARLINGTON! UGH!)

I am actually really happy about the clinical at Parkland. Our instructor is giving us a TON of freedom! I am able to go into a patient's room and give them medication without him or a nurse present. That is a big deal! Granted, we have to fulfill other requirements too, but still, yay for autonomy!

Since I have a Saturday clinical....ick right?....I won't be able to attend the free Crossfit WOD's. :( This really has me sad, because I was looking forward to it. But, what am I to do? Have to get through school. I will probably start my elliptical work beginning this weekend. Need to have notes to read before I can do it!

Hope to see you guys sometime!
