One Week In

Well I'm one week in to the work and school schedule and so far it's going ok.  Work is really boring right now but its about to get more exciting at the end of this week~we'll actually finally be on the floor, thankfully.  I am so tired of sitting in classrooms for hours on end, sometimes learning stuff that is new but mostly learning stuff I already knew (about the job anyway).  And then of course there is having to sit on my butt during my school classes too.  Oh joy oh fun times.  We have this really hard class this semester called Nursing Theory and of course its taught by the Dean!  So you know, its not exactly a class you can blow off or give a minimal effort in.  I have stayed caught up with all of my readings this semester which is better than I normally do. I mean I usually get caught up at some point or another but actually staying on top of stuff...not as bad as I imagined!
So I'm sitting at the Starbucks near my house studying (well right now I'm obviously on a break from studying).  I can't seem to study very well at home, there are too many things to distract me-like the cats, chores, the tv, my phone, the computer (i.e. facebook)~super difficult for me.  I just don't seem to have that same problem when I'm at a Starbucks, even though some of the same temptations are here that are at home.  Well, on that note, I should probably get back to it!  Happy week to everyone out there in blog world!

No song to leave you with today.  Nothing weighing on the mind right now besides school---there just isn't a song for that one at the moment!  :)

Liked It!

Today was a good day.  I filled out my new hire paperwork, did some reading for school, hung out with my BFF's hubby and then hung out with my BFF.  Had to go out and get some business casual clothes for my first few weeks at orientation.  I also bought my first professional nursing shoes, some prism Dansko's, they are beautiful.  I can't wait to break them in...although they better be worth the cost, dammit!  So, overall was there anything super special about today~no not really.  But it was a good day and I'm ending it pretty happy so I figured I should blog about it.
Now all of the new stuff with a new job to go through-picking out benefits, new hire orientation, etc.  I'm excited and nervous at the same time!  Can't wait to get going, although sounds like I'll have to do some scheduling conflict resolution with school already.  That part is NO BUENO!
Ok short post for today, off to do some more reading and await the arrival of my KJ.  Love her!!

"This Life"~Curtis Stigers (Sons of Anarchy Theme Song)

Riding through this world, all alone
God takes your soul; you're on your own
The crow flies straight, a perfect line
On the Devil's back until you die
This life is short, baby that's a fact
Better live it right, you ain't coming back
Gotta raise some Hell before they take you down
Gotta live this life
Gotta look this world in the eye
Gotta live this life 'till you die
You better have soul, nothing less
Cos when it's business time, it's life or death
The King is dead, the light goes on
Don't lose your head when the deal goes down
Better keep your eyes on the road ahead
Gotta live this life
Gotta look this world in the eye
Gotta live this life until you die
