The title of this post is a quote from one of my fave movies, Reality Bites. It’s also because of how naive I was thinking about how much free time I’d have this quarter. At the start, all I thought about is that I wouldn’t have class and would just be doing clinical shifts. What I didn’t take into account was that 3 clinical shifts a week is a full-time nursing schedule, plus weekly clinical meetings on campus, plus other school club duties, plus getting ready to apply for jobs, plus doing a 60 hour leadership project, plus writing my comprehensive exam … oh yeah, and recovering from surgery.
So I haven’t had nearly as much free time as I planned on, but I’m learning a lot. In 2 weeks, the quarter is over and we finally get to go on a short vacation to Colorado and take a much needed break. I cannot wait to have my only responsibility be figuring out what to eat. No alarm clocks for a bit, sounds like paradise to me.
Sorry I’ve been blogging less. I’ll definitely be able to pick it up as my schedule clears up. Much love to you all.
