You are reading page 3 of 10/10 What I learned this week. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

First, I'm back on my vacation safe and sound.

Now:

I learned that I need to pack lighter for trips-carrying bags was a trial after coming off a 7 hour flight.

I learned that having the wrong motion sickness medication can make for a disastrous trip home.

and

Through aches and pains, I can still have a blast and have an eventful vacation! :D

I learned that I can only handle being out at triage for so long. Honestly, I think a full 12 hour shift of being out at triage (with 8 hours of it being out there by myself) is cruel and unusual punishment. Blah. I was ready to karate chop the next person who was rude. Straight to the throat. Lol👋🏼

This week I learned....

-That hard work indeed pays off! :nurse:

-I am going to have to leave my full time job come January for nursing school, and I didn't realize how attached I am to this place. I am going to miss it. I am lucky enough that we will be able to survive off of my hubby's income while I am in nursing school

-The heart is actually making sense to me now....but the arteries and veins...that is another story.:banghead:

-I actually really enjoy A&P II. I think that it is because my professor is so awesome. She really enjoys teaching the subject and she really wants us to learn as much as humanly possible! I wish I would have had her for A&P I. Best professor I have had so far, hands down!

-My classmate that got her rejection letter congratulated me on my acceptance and I thought that was very mature of her. She has gotten very discouraged though about her future, and I really don't know what to say to encourage her.....*sings Journey's Don't Stop Believing!*

-Then there was the facebook friend that posted a long drawn out status about how she feels like she hasn't gotten anywhere in life because she didn't get into nursing school. She gave the typical excuse..."I am a B, C student. I have never been an A student"

In my opinion, everyone is capable of being an A student, it is just harder for some than it is for others. I am one of those where I have to work very very hard and study long periods of time to grasp materials. My grades of A in my prereqs came with sleepless nights. You honestly have to work hard to get what you want. Hmmm...I probably should have responded to her status like this, but now that I think of it; she would have taken it the wrong way anyway.

I learned:

- studying in front of a grocery store is useless

- 90 degrees is too hot for October

- when my son gets home from a hard day he just wanted to play Minecraft in his Oregon Ducks t shirt and boxers

Actually, that's just what I learned today. Why do the children get Columbus day off but colleges don't?

'Cause colleges are educated and know what a rapist Columbus was.

I learned that dealing with crazy people is like walking through a jungle in Vietnam with leftover landmines strewn about.

I learned that nursing students are unfathomably inpatient and that they need to put Xanax in the drinking water for all the type A personalities to chill.......

I learned that, even after 10 years, 2 AAs and 1 BA, writing out how my name will be put on my BSN diploma feels so good.

I learned that, unless there is a camera on me 24/7, no one outside of my home truly understands how busy it is to be a nursing student (save for nurses, instructors and other nursing students).

I learned that the mention of ice cream can keep this board rolling for days.

That the time I don't do my usual independent double check is the time I make a med error.

That even though I don't know that I *love* med-surg, I can't see myself doing any other kind of nursing.

I learned that I'm getting better at not responding to threads. I found 2 that I almost commented on, but I knew that it would elicit the crazy, so I didn't.

Just learned that I can keep my cool when finding fresh art on the tv screen.

Washable markers are wonderful.

I shall soon learn whether I like chocolate wine.

Meh. Not a big fan of the brand I have but I'm not a quitter...
