The past weekend was so unproductive. I stayed indoors and rested a lot after realizing I slept wrong on thursday night and really started feeling the pain on friday. By Saturday, it was intolerable so I resorted to 800mg ibuprofen to relax my neck muscles from the spasms. I had a bad case of the ole 'crick in the neck' and it caused annoying headaches to stick around that Excedrine couldn't beat. The ibuprofen knocked me out, so I slept a ton this weekend. On Sunday, I made a mini grocery run and refilled my 5 gallon water bottle for the Primo Water dispenser here at home. Before I could even remind my husband how to be careful with placing the bottle upside down on top of the dispenser, he had already done it anyway and there was a splash of water all around the machine! It was not bad at all. I have to give him credit though- he helped me with the bottle instead of me having to carry it and install it. Thanks, honey!
I had very light meals on Sunday and also worked on getting a head start on my Summer semester studies. I cannot believe Summer Semester is already here. Where the heck did the past two weeks ago? I am not mentally ready for Summer Semester! I am so exhausted!
For this semester, I'm studying Mental health, Gerontology, and a Healthcare Literature class. I'm genuinely trying to keep an open mind with the Healthcare Literature class; however, I feel like it's already reminding me of my community college english literature composition classes all over again. Remember Ethos, Pathos, Logos and the Thesis essays? Yeah, all of that is in this Healthcare Literature class. What the heck is going on and why am I back to this class in my nursing program? I thought it was a 6 week class, but someone thought it was a smart idea to make it an 8 week class. I'm not thrilled about it at all because there's tons of writing when what I really should be doing is focusing on absorbing all the knowledge from my Mental Health and Gerontology classes.
Monday (this morning), I had to go follow-up with my ophthalmologist to confirm the trial pair of contacts fit me perfectly just so I can get a written prescription for them so I can order them online and save tons of money. I get so sleepy when I shop around online for the best deals. That's the part I'm dreading!
I'll be swamped all day with studying. I have 7 hours worth of campus lecture this week and need to read up on everything before class starts. In case you're wondering by now, no I do not have a social life! The key to success is putting everything else aside so you can ensure you'll survive nursing school!
Hopefully you had a great weekend!
