First week of Fall Semester 2014, discouragements, concerns, failures

Wow, one week down. Already? It flew by with the quickness, and I feel like this Fall is going to be good, bad, quick, busy, all of the above. It is great getting back into school but there were some concerns I had.

First, I wasn’t feeling school this semester and I was scared that would really affect my studies. When you’re not in it whole-heartedly, it can take a toll for the worst sometimes. My plan this semester was to take Human Physiology and Microbiology (both my only prerequisites I have left for Nursing) but the bad news is, I didn’t get into a Micro class. That pushes me back a semester and I won’t be able to apply for the Registered Nursing Program until next summer now. Woop dee woop, I guess it puts a damper on things. I felt like a failure for some reason, and I was bummed that it would push my plans back one whole semester.

Enough crying about it, I have a full schedule to keep me busy with some Transfer Units I need to finish up for my BSN.  I am getting a little wary, a little tired of Community College and just ready to move on to bigger and better things so it has been a little mixture of things here and there that had me a little discouraged.

I’ve been having a few dreams lately about Nursing, some where I am already a Nursing Student, and others where I am getting ready for my first day of the Nursing Program. I guess I want this badly enough that I am dreaming about it. I feel like this is my calling, and this is what I am meant to do. Make differences in people’s lives!! I have to realize that I am closer to my goals than I realize, I need to suck it up, and ride out the wave. This is what I am supposed to be doing, everything will fall into place.

1. Cheer on an amateur sports team in your city. It’s just as fun as supporting a Real Team but tickets are dirt cheap. My city’s non-pro baseball team has a few dates during the summer where tickets are $5 and they have $1 beers all night. Also, until we got a new baseball stadium whenever there was a home game on a Wednesday you could get in for $3 with a student ID (mine didn’t include a date so no one knew I graduated ~3 years ago).

2. Make a fire outside. This is free and hands down, the best date ever.

3. Go through this list of questions and answer them all, back and forth. Or, use it as part of a game of truth or dare.

4. Bowling is always a fun night out, and if you go during the week you can find somewhere to…
