There are three things that will get me through nursing school:
2. The encouragement of family & friends, including all of you. Especially those who are in nursing school and can totally relate.
3. A well-stocked liquor cabinet.
The more blog posts I read by fellow nursing students, the more I get freaked out. I KNOW this journey is NOT going to be a walk in the park, but the more I read, the more I feel like I'm totally unprepared and this is going to be even more difficult than I could even imagine. And I met with a friend yesterday who told me that one of our mutual friends is really having a tough time with her accelerated nursing program she started in May, the very program I was set to do before I changed my mind (again) and settled on the one I am now doing. She said she's really stressed and overwhelmed and thinking the accelerated program was a bad idea. Granted, she is working and going to school, and the program is mostly online, so probably a lot is self taught, but still.
I need to quit freaking out, but seriously, if I'm already getting myself worked up, stressed, and overwhelmed before school has even started... this might end up being a really long 13 months. Maybe I should have asked my doctor for a strong anti-anxiety?
T-7 days. Dun dun dunnnnnnn
(side note: In the event that I don't get around to replying to comments from my last post... or this one... or any future posts, I really, really appreciate all of your kind words. I love responding to comments because I think it makes my blogging relationships a little more than "I read you, you read me," but as I'm sure you can imagine, life has been busy and about to get even more hectic, so time may not always be on my side. But I am SO thrilled that you all like my apartment. It's been fun and a lot of work, but I think having a homey place to go to at the end of the day will be exactly what I need. And for those who offered a listening ear, I WILL be taking you up on that offer, I can guarantee that. You guys are the best!)
