as expected, i failed my endocrine exam. i am bummed. i really studied and i felt like i got it. i did make 3 dumb mistakes, which would have meant passing (barely). i ran out of time on this exam. it was tough. harder than any of the other teachers. i really like the instructor too. i wanted to do well for her. i am worried i will have to give up everything between now and finals to get through. people are always surprised when i do poorly. elizabeth, who sits next to me in lecture, said the nicest thing. i was lamenting how i did. she commented that i was smart. i replied that i was obviously a moron if i was doing so poorly. she said, “no, there is a difference between being smart and testing well.” i thought that was a nice thing to say.
i took last week off. i was terribly social. and it was just great. but it ends now. now i go back to living for nursing school. i know i can do this. i really enjoy the info and what it means to understand all these things. i just need to figure out a better way to study, considering i don’t memorize well at all. it makes me sad though. i enjoy this all so much and i am on the brink (my average is now 80%) of failing out entirely (you fail one class and it is over, which makes sense to me, honestly). anyhow, i am going to work on my paperwork and then bake tonight. baking will help.
OH! i found my lunchpail. or rather, the bldg maintenance chick, janette, did! i asked her if there was a lost and found. she said it was the secretaries office and asked what i lost. i replied “my pink lunchpail with cupcakes and ponies on it”. she laughed but said she would take a look. and she found it! hurrah! something good happened today, at least.
