Has it really been almost 6 months since I’ve updated last? Wow.
Since I left you, school has eaten my life. Right now, I’m one final exam away from having finished my first semester of nursing school at my local community college, and let me tell you: THIS SEMESTER WAS HARD. Technically, it wasn’t even a full courseload (though only just barely part-time), but it entailed trekking half an hour away two nights a week for 4+ hours at a time, and then from October-December I also had to participate in nursing clinicals on Saturdays and Sundays, working in a nursing home from 6am-1pm each day. All of that on top of working 40 hours a week at my regular job. I think I may have joked over the summer that I’d be pretty busy with school, but to tell you the truth, I had no fucking idea what I was getting into.
So, when I wasn’t busting my ass working, studying, or going to class, whenever I had a moment of free time to myself, I was greedy with it. Who wants to take time to work on renovating a house when you barely have time to make sure the clothes you’re wearing are clean? So, I’ve been a little lax on the house/blog front. Oops.
No more, though! Well, at least after next Tuesday. And for the next three weeks, during my blessed winter break.
I can’t wait!
