Day 21 as Nursing Student

10/14/10:

Traffic was somewhat bad today as there were a ton of crazy drivers and people who had no idea where they were going 80% of the time. Scrambled to finish my lab workbook for Assessment lab (still working on it even in lab during our video time). Unfortunately, I missed my retake (around 8ish am as they squeezed me in) for the NG tubing so I know I have to do it tomorrow (Friday) during my original scheduled time. The thing was I had scheduled a month ago that I was to work tomorrow (Friday) so the retake would have conflicted with work, but since it's been a crazy, hectic, exhausting week with logging in so many hours of traffic, driving distance/time, reading, studying, homework, and sleep deprivation, I just went ahead and canceled work for tomorrow. That way, I can retake my NG tubing skill and get that over with.

0905 - Made it to class; watched videos (which I didn't really pay attention to, so I made a note to go watch it sometime soon before exam)
1000 - Break into our clinical groups
1015 - Lecture started; did assessment on partner with heart/neck vessels and peripheral vascular and lymphatic systems; worked on assessment plan
1315 - Lab over; went to car to grab my lunch
1330 - Lunch with friends and classmates in student lounge
1445 - Lunch over; reviewed planner; chatted with friends and classmates
around 1520 - Somehow dozed off on the table...
1545 - Woke up! Felt better.
1555 - Pharmacology tutoring over the endocrine system (drugs!). It was really helpful.
1745 - Tutoring done
1805 - Finally left; went to computer lab
1850 - Left school; homeward-bound

Negative: It was somewhat upsetting that I'd forgotten my shorts. I was in a rush this morning and accidentally took them off (as I was planning to wear them under my scrubs), so I came to lab today without them. The thing is we need to be in our shorts and sports bra or camisole so that way we can practice doing physical assessments on each other... Anyway, these same shorts were to be used today for the gym as well, but since I'd forgotten them, couldn't work out today. It was disappointing to say the least as I wanted to burn away stress (and I also had all of my other gym stuff ready-to-go in my car!!). Grrrrr. Well, maybe next week I can pull together my sanity. I guess it's understandable because this week I've been completely sleep-deprived, overwhelmed, and feeling as if though I'm about to get sick. Here's hoping that I get or find more sleep this weekend...
