It's taken me a week to get out of my emo!funk and get up the energy to update - a week that is supposed to be holiday time but instead was an odd mixture of chores, adventures and assignment stress. Wheeee! Good times!
So it started off like this:
Friday (a week ago) was my last day of Nursing Clinical's for the year - the end of an exhausting six months of straight school stress - either in the form of lectures, practical assessments, assignments, exams or full time clinicals. It also happened to be a week and a half since my sister left for her overseas trip (my little sis, who is more like a best friend and someone I've only been separated from for a significant length of time twice. in her whole life). And I had a really shitty (kinda literally) day at the hospital - that involved me nearly smacking a couple of the other nursing students and to top it all off I still hadn't heard if I was accepted into going to Sweden for uni next year or not.
So I was feeling really isolated and lonely - because I felt like I had no supports and I just wanted to curl up in a ball and be emo. So I did - except it started when I was out walking the dog and I must have looked kind of pathetic walking down the street crying. at 3pm on a bright, beautiful, warm day - the first one in months.
hence the emo!warning and the distance.
But I'm feeling much better - though I don't think it's going to last long - three assignments due at the end of next week and I have only started one. time management by the master here folks!
In other news: Sweden is still up in the air - the uni hasn't decided if all three of us can go, which is superduper annoying because everyone else nearly has the nomination except us! So frustrating - they said most likely the middle of next week - but 7 weeks ago they said it would be a week.
Okay, I have Bones to watch and three assignments to do - its an exciting Friday night for me.
