I thought I'd stop by and say hello quick enough to confirm that I'm alive. I'm well too, considering all that is going on. Hubs, Mr. McGoo takes very good care of me as we continue to travel down this crazy road we call nursing school.
Today, Mr. McGoo stopped by and gave me a little happy from Sonic - a raspberry sweet tea I had been craving for over a week - before he jumped in a car traveling to Starkville, MS to watch his beloved Kentucky CATS take on the Mississippi State Dawgs tonight!
I'm about to meet my "mid-term" moment of the trimester... it's crazy because I feel as if I've been doing this forever, but in reality it's only been 7 weeks. The silver lining, however is that I'm on a 7 week countdown until I can say I've completed another trimester of nursing school... taking it one at a time.
I'm off in a few to complete my first official HESI examination. Oddly enough, I'm not worried about it, although I know I'm not really prepared... for this time only, if we do not pass (77C is the lowest grade you can make to pass), we have an opportunity to do some remediation work and retake the exam. I think that has removed a lot of the pressure from my shoulders. I'm going to go in tonight, do my best to recall all I can remember and "know" from my Basic Skills, Health Assessment, and Essentials of Nursing courses of past - and see where we go from there.
***Update: I passed with a 79.55%. Thankful for that! Only frustrating part is that 3 of the questions I missed, I actually had right - just stupid entry errors. Lesson from the story: Take my time and make sure I follow ALL directions. Silly. I want to do better!
