if you asked me...

photo taken earlier this month, when life seemed oh so simple
If you asked me how my first week of LPN school was, I would tell you that...

>>I could not sleep the night before.
>>I got lost driving around the parking lot the first day.
>>I finally found the right parking lot after following other classmates' cars.
>>I felt like I was in high school again.
>>packed lunches and 8 hours of classes will do that.
>>I made new friends, yay!
>>school is hard; LPN school is harder.
>>I am overwhelmed and I have the pimples on my face to prove it. While I'm on the pimple note, I received the pimple from hell last week. My chin literally looked like I got punched in the face, or that I had dip. Either way, it was not pretty.
>>people are generally nice.
>>the teachers want us to succeed.
>>it is going to be a long road.
>>my brain is fried everyday.
>>bed baths are complicated.
>>changing the sheets with someone in the bed is hard work.
>>there IS a proper way to take off gloves.
>>5:50am is too early.
>>it was hard to keep me eyes open.
>>my teachers still don't know my name (maybe a good thing?).
>>I still feel unprepared.
>>it's hard to hard to have a dating life when you and your other are both in medical programs.
>>coffee, and lots of it, is a NECESSITY.
>>another caffeinated drink should also be included.
>>uniforms are the pits.
>>I missed this blog.
>>I missed you all.
>>I will never wash my hands the same.
>>I have already asked myself why I am doing this.
>>then I remember that people out there need help. They simply cannot help themselves and need someone compassionate, thoughtful, and hard working to take care of them, no matter what they're situation is.
>>my philosophy for getting though the not so pretty part of nursing is: ask yourself how you or your loved one would want to be treated and taken care of. You have to think this way or else you'll throw up.
>>this road that God has me on, it's worth it.

Monday, funday, right?!

you're so compassionate and brave. you're right that the work you're doing is important, but also really hard, so i hope the blog continues to be an outlet for emotion and a place to receive support when you don't know how to ask for it. you're a rockstar.
