>Journey to the 1st exam

>My first exam…I’m not actually entirely sure which one it’ll be…my psych professor called out sick today.  We were supposed to have an exam on Friday over chapters 1-4.  On Monday, we won’t have a lecture.  We are taking the Myer-Briggs personality test.  Wednesday will be our first actual lecture.  Monday and Wednesday last week were introductions to the class and the syllabus.  So, I’m not entirely sure we *will* have an exam on Friday.  But, I’m not going to bet that there WON’T be one, so I need to be prepared for it anyway…

If we don’t end up with an exam on Friday, I know that I’ll have one the following Tuesday in Microbiology over chapters 1-5. 

I decided to take the evening off to play on the computer.  I’m absolutely pooped after my workout today.  I actually ran on the treadmill for 15 full minutes.  I tried to do 16.5, but I just couldn’t breathe anymore.  I’ll get more stamina as I continue to do it.

I’m quitting smoking on Monday.  That should make it easier to try and study…(read sarcasm here)…

Must sleep now.

>The journey to Pueblo

>Daily, I drive from Fountain to Pueblo where I attend Colorado State University-Pueblo in pursuit of my BSN.  Every morning, I get up, get showered and dressed and roll out to 7-11 where I get my coffee fix.  I could (and probably should) make coffee at home.  I then battle traffic going to the local high school and the Soldiers making their way to first formation (Physical Training) on a road that has been under construction as long as I’ve lived in this neighborhood.  I make a very boring 30 mile drive.  I go to classes, hang out with new friends, study a bit and then I make the same drive I made some 8 hours before, except I fight with traffic coming out of the base and the teachers leaving the school.

I will be doing this day in and day out for the next 14 weeks.  I don’t get Labor day off, but I get a full week off at Thanksgiving.  That’s a new one…

>Journey to nursing and motherhood

>Well, I made a couple of fatal errors today when giving myself my shot this evening.  I forgot to alcohol swab my skin!  Then, I ended up having to stick myself twice because the needle popped out the first time!

I certainly hope that this isn’t a sign that I shouldn’t go into nursing! I’ve had enough shots and blood drawn to know that I needed to clean the skin…man, I am a dummy!

>Journey to the end of the 3rd month of infertility drugs

>Well, if you couldn’t tell, I’m still not pregnant yet.  If I am not pregnant this cycle, then I start the hardcore fertility drugs.  If THAT doesn’t work, then we start IUI treatments…and holy crap!  My insurance doesn’t cover any of that medication!  So, we’re really hoping that this month works.  I kinda knew a long time ago that I was going to have to do injectibles, but I really hope that I don’t have to.  It’s really hard on your body.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now…
