Somehow I managed to gain more followers during my silence! You guys are the best, and one day I hope to be able to visit you all--maybe Christmas?
I missed my 3rd Week of Nursing School post, because my body decided this past weekend would be a great time to try to get sick. Fortunately, with the aid of orange juice, Zyrtec, and Benadryl, I managed to will it mostly away.
Next week is my first Hell Week. I have my first nursing unit test on Monday, first lab test on Tuesday, as well as my first unit A & P test on Tuesday, then that Friday I'll have my official skills checkoff. I've already made 300 flashcards and still have more to go.
Just for the record, though, I am loving it. Seriously, this was the best decision I've made in a long time.
I'm also becoming even more of a nutrition nut, so I feel duty bound to tell you not to smoke and to check out this website for your health-related interests and needs: Healthfinder.
Last Thursday I went to the health center to see a NP about my leg, which has been killing me. As I suspected, she said shin splints, told me to ice and stop running. I did for a few days, but today I went back out and felt pretty good, and in no small part because the weather is drizzly and 65 degrees.
My brother is trying to convince me to run a 6k on October 22. This would be my first race, and I was kinda thinking a 5k to start out, but it's only 3/4 mile longer. I dunno. I'm still training, though I've made leaps and bounds of improvement, and it's still 6 weeks away. I'm thinking about it...
I hope the weather is treating you all nicely. We got rain for the first time in at least a month, and it's amazing! Some tornadoes hit the metro-Atlanta area, but doesn't look like it was too terribly bad, though I know from experience that any tornado is a bad tornado.
And though I don't usually speak about things like this, because I don't believe in judging or making people feel bad, I do strongly support breast cancer awareness. So if you're familiar with the Facebook "game" relating to breast cancer, or not, check out this link.
