Despite my upcoming finals, the massive amounts of work required to finish out the semester and the parts of my apartment begging for attention, I've had a terrific week.
Here is why:
- My community health teacher told me I should go into research after I've been a nurse for a while! I think I'd enjoy making that part of my job, but we'll see if it happens or not. It's really nice to hear that I'd be good at something, especially something so important.
- I am done with one big project! Today I did my first Power Point presentation ever. I have no desire to do another, but this one turned out OK. It was a group project with one lazy member and two non-lazy members, so it turned out to be a lot of work. I'm so happy it's done and hopefully done well.
- Running is going well. Our Ravenswood Run is next weekend and I'm excited to run with B. He says he'll push me to see how fast I can go. This is excellent training for my 10-mile run in May.
- I had my last non-final test this week and got a 92! Awesome! The test did cover diabetes, which I might have a slight advantage with, but I will take a 92 as awesome work just the same.
- Our finals week is finally settled -- my three finals are s--p--r--e--a--d out. A test on a Monday, a test on a Thursday and the last test on the next Monday. I'm planning to study in the sun as much as possible. And to take breaks to get some of my break to-dos accomplished.
- This summer's clinicals should be exciting. Pediatrics can't be at (Lurie) Children's Memorial because the hospital is moving from Lincoln Park to downtown near Northwestern. I'm hoping to go to one of the open houses for the new hospital (which looks gorgeous from the outside) or do the 5K run from the old location to the new one. I cruised the website for Lurie Children's Memorial and I'm already excited to hear more. Hopefully I can work there one day!
