Nurse Betty BScN (cand): have I become illiterate?

Nurse Betty BScN (cand)

I am a 36 year old mother of 2. I entered university in 2005 for the BScN program but had no idea what a roller coaster ride it would be. My other interests are boating, cottaging, gardening, sitting, doing nothing, vegging and of course hard core belly button contemplating.

have I become illiterate?

Okay, so I have off and on all weekend been trying to prepare for these sociology midterms. I have read every single word assigned and I am still completely blank. Have I lost the ability to comprehend the written word or is it that most of these articles that range from early societies to violence in films such as Robocop, are just too abstract for what has become my well-honed scientific brain : ) (yeah right) I mean questions in nursie courses are so cut and dry, nice and clear. I like that, but these sociology courses have explanations that go on for pages and at the end I'm still not sure what the answer is. So wish me luck on the midterms this week because I have a feeling that I'll be doing a whole lot of eenie meenie minie moe.
So the weather this weekend made me kind of relieved that I wasn't at the cottage after all (only a little relieved though) I got up early Saturday morning and went shopping, I tried on a gazillion dresses and settled on a gorgeous black dress with white embroidery. It looks like something Audrey Hepburn would wear in Roman Holiday. I really like it. Of course seeing as I weigh at least 50 pounds more than dearly departed Audrey I pulled out the old corset. Between my feet feeling like raw meat by the end of the night and all my organs being compressed, I was happy to get home and out of that. It was really nice to see friends that we haven't seen in a long time though and it really meant a lot to the bride that we were there because there were really not very many people there, I felt kinda badly for the couple. I have been wondering if the dress is too fancy to wear to the awards ceremony next week. Otherwise I'll have to go and buy something else, which is not something I really want to do, seeing as I am kinda traumatized by this last experience.
Well, back to Marxism and biological determinism and Max Weber and RoboCop. Thanks for reading. Have an awesome day.

I can't remember the last time I even had on a dress (not that I have any that would fit me anymore). As a "non traditional" (that means old) student, I've found my flabby brain works better if I look up a simpler explanation on the internet, then cram it in really fast the night before the test, and then forget it. You'll never need it again anyway.

that is VERY GOOD advice and not far from what I do. I love text books with glossaries, my notes look like one big dictionary with the word in bold print then the definition beside it, nothing rational AT ALL
