Nurse Betty BScN (cand): yawn........

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.

Tony's essay is sleeping with the fishes, unfortunately I'm not going to be doing any sleeping with fishes or otherwise this week. I have bird course #1 exam on Wednesday and bird course #2 on Thursday. They are more annoyances than anything, but still I would really like to get them out of the way.

Tony's essay is okay, it isn't the best thing that I have ever written, it is just about the longest though, just shy of 3000 words. It says A LOT of stuff but I am lacking my usual flow. I just don't have it in me to write any more essays for at least oh I don't know, say 2 months.

The cottage this weekend was fun, busy but fun. We worked our butts off getting ready for the season. Every inch is aching, but it is all for a good cause because in 3 weeks I will be eating bacon and drinking vodka on my dock in the sunshine and that is a good thing.

The Half Dead Wonder Dog is getting kinda slow, I am hoping that she will not increase her fraction at least until the end of the summer.

That's all for now, gotta get back to sociology and ideological hegemony. I personally feel that hegemony is alive and well when they make me take these courses. I don't think that the patients will care if I know how capitalism advances inequalities of any sort when I am inserting their Foley.

Take care ;o)

Ok, I had to look up ideological hegemony on the internet, because I didn't have a clue what that is, much less heard of any classes. The dog situation is very similar in my house. The vet took her off of her ($80.00/month) arthritis meds to give her body a rest, and I've lasted 11 days. I called today and got some more after explaining we really, really need them. I'll bet she fell down 5 times today since she's sleeping in the kitchen due to the explosive diarrhea she depostited all over the living room carpet. We also saw another snake. Creepy. I loved your description of the graduates. That was lovely. I can't wait. 16 more months!!!!

I know what you mean about lacking your usual flow. I just finished a paper that the teacher pretty much told me sucked. Which is odd, since I've never done worse than an A on any research paper before, and I worked in a research lab...... So, I'll just assume my flow is interrupted.

Good luck with your exam. :) And classes with big names.

In my experience, all my patients have started conversations about capitalism while I am inserting their foley. I just thought that was standard procedure... Wait a second, I still haven't inserted a Foley.... lol. I feel your pain!!!

Writer's block is a bitch in a convertible. Thank Cracker Jacks that I have finished my last essay for 2 months. Hope your flow gets unclogged soon Mandy.
Katie, when you get to do that Foley (you will before I do) let me know if the topic of radical feminism comes up. I am going to continue taking all the bird courses that I am required to take within the spring semesters so my mind isn't clouded with useless information during regular semester. thanks for visiting folks
