Nurse Betty BScN (cand): I'll pay you

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.

I'll pay you

Okay, so when regular classes ended I lost all ability to read and write, not a problem for most of my classmates but big problem for me because I am taking the two sociology courses. Where I used to be able to read Potter and Perry until my eyes bled I can't get through 10 pages of this stupid Pop Culture book to save my life. I also have midterms next week and papers due in each class. For the life of me I can't begin to write the 2 essays. One is going to be about gender bias and I have decided to put a spin on it and rather than the usual bias that women can't be fire fighters I am going to speak about the lack of men in caring professions such as nursing (big surprise), so I am interested in anything any guys out there have to say about any biases that they have been hit by. The pop culture essay is not coming along as I had hoped, in fact it isn't coming along at all. I am supposed to take a movie that presents itself as "the way things are", that claims to have no agenda but then pick it apart and find that after all there is a hidden message about any one of the following headings, class, gender, race, or sexuality. One of the movies the teacher suggested was actually Ferris Beuller's Day Off. I am supposed to be able to debate this movie from a "class" perspective. 2000 words on Ferris Beuller! I just don't think that John Hughes meant to be saying anything when he made that movie, it is a fun light movie, there is a bit of teen angst with Cameron the friend having his epiphany after sending his father's car out the windo but that's about it really. Oh well, Whatever. So if anyone has any tips on that one too I would be so grateful.
I am tired and just want to take a nap but instead I am reading about the decline of the feudal system.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

No, no, no. "The Breakfast Club" is THE movie to deal with this subject.

You take 5 kids from all walks of life and thrust them in a confined space.

Good luck in your classes. I kind of miss regular classes, nowadays.
