Wow! They weren't kidding

13 September 2012

I just finished week three of my nursing classes. Wow! This stuff is not easy. But of course why would it be? I am going to be taking care of other people. I need to know what to do at the drop of a hat. It is a lot of fun. Yesterday I got to put in catheters! I know you probably don't want to hear all that, and it is too much information, but it was fun, fun, fun! I know I am weird, no need to inform me.

Class is really demanding. Now I usually get up at about 5:30 in the morning. I start clinical or class between 6:30 and 7:00 and usually go until 4:30 in the afternoon. I then come home and clean the house which has a family of six floating around in it. I have to say this too, they treat me like a mom out of the 1950s! I do all the cleaning, every bit of it. I do the dishes, cook, laundry, and all the other fun stuff like sweeping, mopping, and dusting. I then make sure everyone has supper. I used to cook a lot of homemade, but I will admit this, I have been running for the freezer section and take out for the last week. I try to limit that to once or twice a week though. After supper it is study time. I am in my books from about 5:00 in the evening to 8:00. I then make sure all the kids clean themselves via the shower, snack, brush their teeth, and go to bed. Now I get a minute to take a quick shower, head to the bed, watch TV, and then lights out between 11:00 and 12:00. Then I start over again. I don't know what it is either, maybe anxiousness or stress but I can't fucking sleep man! I lay in bed for hours tossing and turning. I drink chamomile, take melatonin, and lay there. What is wrong with me? I am so tired I could just die! I will survive though. I honestly love what I am doing right now and wouldn't have it any other way. Well, except for the sleep part. That would be nice.

Other than all that, I am just trying to prioritize my life right now. I have to get some me time, or fun time in right? Last weekend the grandparents took all the kids, all four of them! We went out to the bar and had a blast. It was nice to be able to just be normal for one night. Other exciting things are new reviews coming up. I just got the Madame Butterfly 3 Wild Ride from Eden Fantasys. This thing looks amazing and so much fun. I can't wait until I get to try it out!!! I just have to find the time. I mean look at it. Doesn't it just make you want to stop what you're doing, drop your pants, and take a wild ride? Or is that just me?

How has everyone else been? What are you up to? Any new and exciting products you are reviewing or new lifestyles you have to adjust to?

P.S. If I have typos, I really don't care. I don't have time to proofread tonight! If it bothers you that much, you should probably stop reading my blog! Who has time to worry about a fucking typo? I am not getting paid for this!

One Week Down

02 September 2012

I made it through my first week run of my second term in practical nursing. Believe it or not... I am still alive and breathing. We had a huge increase in admissions this year though and it has been like hanging out at a circus for a week. We took a trip to our master campus and got to play in the simulation lab. They have manikins that I have never seen before. They are $60,000 fake humans. They breath, talk, have heart beats, bowel sounds... I can give them an IV! They can even go into respiratory arrest and I have to do CPR to revive them! These things are just about the coolest thing I have ever seen.

So there were a lot of great points in the week, but as I mentioned we had a big jump in admissions. We have a class of 40 crammed into a small classroom and let me tell you, it is going to shrink a lot, a lot, a lot. We have a mix of ages from 18 to 50. Quite a difference there. You know who drives me the craziest though? The 18 year old girls that have no clue how the world works. They have absolutely no common sense. Don't get me wrong, they are smart girls. They are about the dumbest smart people I know. I am going to have to learn to have patience because they are already getting on my nerves.

Other than that, it has been a good week. I have loads of homework, nursing interventions to write, and studying to do though. I hope everyone had a great week!
