It's Over!

Summer semester is officially over. I took my last final exam (which was in my developmental psychology class) this evening. Although I struggled with the course at the beginning and complained about the amount of work give, I ended up pulling an "A" in her class. I ended up with a "B" in Microbiology. I know that's not bad, but it still brings down your GPA, and I was really hoping to get an A in that class as well. But like always, other life events interfere, so I'm thankful that I achieved what I got.

So I have about 1 1/2 week break before fall semester....nursing school....starts back up (August 17th).

I babysat all day today, babysitting all day tomorrow, babysitting for a few hours on Sunday. Hoping to get some pool time in with a friend this weekend...hopefully. And then next weekend I'm going to Nashville to visit one of my good friends for a little "mini vacation." I have my Nursing Orientation Session next Friday from 9am until about 1:15 pm then will leave from there to Nashville. Then I'll return Sunday. Classes will start back up that Tuesday, which I am excited about...just wish I had a little longer break. I also already have 2 babysitting jobs that Wed and Thursday night of the week school starts.

More blogging to come. I forgot to blog about my wonderful ER visit last Monday (missing my 2nd to last day of class, and the day before my Micro Lab Final)...but all turned out ok, just a major 24 hour stomach bug...the worst I've ever had in my entire life. It's definitely going around down here and I'm guessing I caught it at class from someone. It's amazing at how good I felt, then all of a sudden BAM!!

Off to get some rest before another day of babysitting (it helps that they are great kids).

I hope everyone has had a great week. Our public schools start back next week....so for those of you with kids starting school next week, enjoy your last school-free weekend :)

Hi Katey,
Just a quick comment to let you know that I've been thinking of you. I'm taking A & P this semester and applying to pharmacy school and I keep thinking "I hope I do as well as Katey did!" Congrats on doing so well in your classes and for making into nursing school! You are such an amazing person and I'm so happy for you.

Lots of love,
Erin
