It’s been a while since I’ve used this thing but it sounds like a good time for an update.
The good news is that I got A’s in the two classes that I took in the Summer! It was pretty much a first for me since I never really worked that hard in my undergrad. My GPA is terrible and scattered with C’s but it’s glad to finally see firsthand that hard work pays off.
I struggled the hardest with my oral communications class - mainly because I become a nervous wreck when giving public speeches. Does it happen to you? You got up there, you rehearse it mentally to yourself as you walk up, and then BAM! Your mind is racing, you think to much and to save yourself from the trauma you brain just shuts off and goes blank. Now you absolutely have no idea what the fuck to say.
Happens to me EVERY TIME.
I really screwed up with one of the speeches because I had to give it the Monday right after EDC weekend. Bad idea. Brain was too fried but it was worth it. Completely worth it. Thank God, I was about to fix everything later. It also helped that my professor was a generous and titled the grading a bit to my favor.
I’m thankful that it’s all good and over. It was too exhausting trying to juggle everything in 7-8 weeks. Definitely never doing that again. My professor for anatomy was SUPER DOPE though. She has some great advice that really made me consider physician possibly over nurse but we’ll see what the future holds. Who knows if it’s still even within my grasp?
The vacation was short lived. After a week and a half with nothing to do, here I am beginning my four month Certified Nursing Assistant class through National City Adult School. My instructor is really nice but I still find myself dozing off since the lectures are four hours each day. This’ll only be a month though - then we begin the dirty work. Not too excited about all the shit (literally) I’m gonna be dealing but if it’s one step closer to being a nurse, I’ll handle it.
Life is bland. School. Gym. Watching movies. Cook. Sleep. That’s pretty much what I do. Introverted but still the most focused I’ve been in a long time. I’ve been going through all my old science books (ex. O-Chem, Physics, Molecular Bio) so I can master all those subjects that I barely passed in undergrad. Seems kind of pointless but it serves to remind myself that I’m no longer that sophomore that never gave a shit. I’m better than that now.
CURRENT GOALS (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER)
