And Just Like That...
Nursing school starts again tomorrow.... Everybody panic!!!
Just kidding... Sort of. It is hard to believe that my last summer as a university student has come and gone. Next summer I will be a real grown up and working (hopefully) full time. In some ways it feels like I just started this journey. It still seems like yesterday that I was attending second year orientation, not knowing anybody in my class, not really knowing what I was getting into. Fast forward a couple of years and I have friends that I feel like I have known my whole life (and can't imagine not having in my life) and a prospective career that has become more a part of me than I ever thought possible.
The start of this year is feeling a little bittersweet. Sweet because nursing school has been the most challenging thing I have ever done - in so many ways - and I will be glad to not have OSCE's and exams and term papers breathing down my neck. But the inevitable down side is that a part of my life is soon to be over - I've been a student for five years now, it feels like that is all I know how to do.
But times will change and life moves from one period to the next. So, fourth year, I am ready for you.
