So I have begrudgingly stumbled into passing grades in nursing fundamentals, health assessment and sociology. My pursuit of a nursing license was almost derailed due to procrastination, but fortunately the massive comprehensive final exam was easier than expected. Of course, it does not help my situation that I am working full time. Apparently next semester is supposed to get more challenging, although from the military-style preview of what next semester is going to look like, they (the nursing faculty) are accurate in that assessment.
I am seeing the odd astrology client here and there when and if I have time. Although I suspect that I will only have time between now and January 11th (when I resume nursing school).
My mental clarity was nearly derailed due to a TV show (Elementary) and a new computer game. The process of studying at least 36 hours for a test that was easier than expected has shaken my world, at least temporarily.
I don’t quite realize that I am on winter break. I intend to sleep. I want to take baths, work, see the occasional friend, spend quality time with my girlfriend (she has supported me admirably during nursing school so far), and did I mention I wanted to nap and sleep?
I also have assignments to complete. I must buy the medical surgical textbook, and the disease and disorder book. Not to mention the pharmacology book.
Honestly, I am excited about what the next couple of semesters hold. I am learning more than I ever have before. Although I must do a better job of staying focused and at least rest down when I have a moment to myself. I fear that the shingles virus which reared its ugly head in 2013 might attempt to re-emerge what with all the stressors I have swirling around me at present.

Spiritual practice and self care are vital right now.
I wish I could write more extensively and with more clarity. But at present, this will have to do.
Thank you for reading these jumbled words of a busy student!
