Nurse Betty BScN (cand): Popular Culture

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.

Popular Culture

Okay, so I am studying for bird course #2 Popular Culture and not a word of a lie, I am reading about Keanu Reeves and virtual reality. How can I take this seriously??? The guy gave us sample essay questions yesterday, one of them was about Ferris Bueller's Day Off. "In this clip, Ferris Bueller and his pals scheme to win a table at a fine dining restaurant. What does the film suggest it takes in order to earn class mobility? To what extent is this true? " and another was about The Truman Show "In this clip, Truman exchanges flirtatious glances with Lauren, his "true love" before Truman's future wife intrudes. What might the film be suggesting is the difference between an ideal and a deviant femininity?" I'm supposed to write 500 words on questions like these. Help me before I sink into the abyss of insanity!
I think I bombed bird course #1 exam today. I am just tapped. I don't have it in me to write about stuff I don't care about. Actually I am just tired and want a break. Say it with me--One more day and no more homework, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks for 2 glorious months. I will have modules that I am expected to learn over the summer and of course I will want to relearn anatomy/physiology to prep for pathophysiology next semester but otherwise, I am a free agent. I am looking forward to playing cards with the Anchors, chatting with neighbours, watching tv with The Husband, plucking my eyebrows without thinking of the time that I am wasting. You name it, I'll be doing it, hell, I am even looking forward to cleaning my house!
I singed all the hair off my arms tonight lighting the barbeque, now my arm smells funny. Any suggestions?
Well back to the People Magazine that is my Pop Culture text book. Thanks for reading ;o)

LOL... it's hard to do assignments when you are just sick of it and not interested to boot, huh? I had a class like that last semester!
Now I'm in my "two glorious months" before starting my new job... well except for trying to study for NCLEX with three boys underfoot. But the breaks is REALLY nice, I hope you enjoy yours!!

It WOULD be weird to read "stuff" that's school and assigned, but about movies and Keanu Reeves...and virtual reality. Does it FEEL like a virtual reality doing that? ;)

oh yeah. but now that it is over it doesn't seem like any sort of reality actually. I can't believe I don't have to read that crap anymore
