The theme of this semester is change and research. I don't know much about these two topics yet, but the gist seems to be that we will do a big project all semester long that will create change in a community organization. We will also learn about how to be smart consumers of scientific research and how research is important to nursing practice.
Confined to endless textbook readings, I have re-rigged a way to prop my textbook up on my stationary bike. I hope this will help me to stay "active" while having no choice but to read ALL DAY LONG.
When I listen to them talk in class about how hard this semester will be, I imagine them as jailers telling us to say goodbye to our freedom. It is actually kind of scary how much they are trying to make us feel anxiety so we will hopefully stay on track this semester.
The language in this semester is different, says our teacher. In other words, the language of our textbooks this semester is MORE BORING.
Do I sound negative? Yes! Of course I do. But it's for a good reason. It's because my vacation was so good and I miss it already :) Please, please let it be vacation time again.
You see how upset Donald Duck is? It's like I was leaning over the rail enjoying the view and someone shoved me overboard onto Vancouver soil :P
Alas, there is no point in complaining. If I work very hard, it will be vacation time soon enough. My classmates tell me that I will be finished my nursing program in 8 months! That is indeed not a very long time.
I can do it! I hope you are having a good time wherever you are.
