Come as you are, as you were…

Yesterday night after a all day studying marathon session, when I finally realized that nothing else was going into my brain, I started re-reading some of my old blog posts from circa 2011. It was very endearing and fun and I used to write a lot! I was surprised that I blogged that much. I was happy reliving some of those emotions- when I was not sure if my financial aid would go through or not and whether I would be able to start pre-requisites for nursing school on time, my uncertainty over my career choice, our marriage and some of the fragile moments , and of course some of our precious memories! I decided, man, even if I do not have a whole lotta time on hand these days, I should atleast try to blog more frequently. A few years from now all this will be a memory too and I want to cherish them.

I know, right now, I get terribly impatient about when can I finish school, be a RN and have my career. And things have taken time but things have a way of working out. I might miss being in school a few years from now, who knows! Life is just sometimes best left un-understood.

I had a big exam today and I studied so freaking hard for it. I did great, a 96! wuhoo, am back in business. I kinda scored badly on the 2nd test. See, for me, passing is not enough. I know I can do better. I am not saying I need to score an A every single time, because it is very difficult in NS I have realized. I do have high expectations of myself- that’s my Indian-ness right there. This week is packed with action: last clinical day tomorrow, then Simulation, where we get to show what all we learned in clinicals, then ATI, which is like a nursing licensure prototype exam and then finally the big final on Friday. We then get a short weekend off before we jump into the next 8 weeks of med-surge.

I love learning. I have been learning so, so much ever since I started school. It makes me feel so powerful and empowered. I just feel a high. Nerd alert.

Anyway, some new nail stuff to end this post since that has just become my thing.

These Wet n Wild polishes were BOGO free this past weekend at CVS, plus I had extra-bucks rewards, so I paid 50 cents for 4 polishes!!  (not pictured is a base coat.)

The eggplant and green shades on my hands. Yep, that's right, wearing two different nail colors.
