Nurse Betty BScN (cand): too late now

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.

too late now

Oh well, so marks came out today and my predictions were confirmed. Despite 10 A's and 3 B's (one being barely a B- in A/P) I didn't make the Dean's list. *insert heavy sigh here* I know I know I know, I have to let go of the marks thing and I promise I will but I still have a little bit of grief for my lost dream. I spent the morning playing the what if game - what if I hadn't watched an episode of Six Feet Under the night before the psych exam, what if I hadn't blown off the nutrition exam in first semester, what if I had realized the errors of my ways in my issues paper, what if I hadn't taken that God forsaken French class in first semester, what if what if what if. The answers all pretty much come out to be the same, I would have been on the Dean's list but I didn't and hind sight and all that baloney. Onto year 2 (but not until I have a fabulous summer at the cottage), the dreaded year of patho and statistics in the same year. Sadists!!! I am actually going to have to do *gulp* math, hopefully I'll grow a few more fingers and toes to help me out with the really hard questions before then. Who said nursing school would be easy? as my mother says, if it were easy everyone would be doing it.
So the sociology courses are humming along. I need a break, I know that I will be glad that I took these next year when all my peers are studying for 6 exams and I am only studying for 4 but I really wished that there was a bit more than a 2 day break between the end of nursie exams and the start of the spring semester.
Thanks for reading

p.s. how do you all deal with disappointment? I am really interested in other methods, I thought that eating chocolate chip cookies would help me feel better but they didn't and in fact now I feel worse because not only am I not on the Dean's list but I have a fat ass

p.p.s. can someone tell me how the ding dang to list my favourite blogs on the side of my blog? I'm not that computer savvy so please use very small words so I can understand, remember I'm not bright, I didn't make the DEAN'S LIST!!!

Hiyas :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! It is always fun to meet new nursing students.

I figured I would have to write a few papers. And while I love to write (I do have several blogs ;)) I just hate being given a topic to write about!

I am not familiar with blogger, so I am not sure how to add links. Good luck and I look forward to hearing more about your journey!
