This year started with a bang. S was away for two weeks straight, then a whole week away at camp. Then straight into work! Dinner dates, meetings, weekends away and then some more work.

I can't believe it's half way through February! Time just ran away from me, literally, I feel like I've been running a race this last few weeks and I just want to sit for a day, not today though I need to work, and not tomorrow, I need to be organising uni textbooks, which will be over 500 dollars this semester, thank goodness I had some extra work!

Uni is still 2 weeks away, starting the first week on March, having finished last year at the end of October, I am chomping at the bit to get back into learning! I've already printed out all my resources, tutorial notes, signed up for one class, and waiting for my other classes sign-up to happen so I can have my timetable set in stone.

Unfortunately I had some disturbing news not too many days ago. An email sent through to all nursing students informing them that there will be no on campus lectures this semester, besides the first week, all resources will be online.

For some this was a welcome relief but for me, not so much. For full time workers it was, less time at uni, but the whole purpose I went to internal student instead of distance and having a full time job is because I can't do self directed learning! I had a distance subject last year and the only times I looked at the content was when I had to complete the assignments! 

I want to attend lectures, all the resources and recording were online anyway for those who didn't want to attend lectures but for those who really used those lectures to learn now they are gone and I have all this extra time that I don't have work so now I'm really going to have to discipline myself and do all the work at home. If I wanted to do that I would have gone distance!!! 

All that said, I am still excited about uni this semester, feels like I'll really be learning things that nurses do, IM injections, wound care, things that I'll then get to practice on my four week placement in a hospital.

Hopefully next week will be really slow and not hectic and I can relax before uni kicks off and I'll be into my 2nd year of nursing!

Is there anything you are looking forward to? Or not looking forward to?

Linking up with Jess for IBOT


  1. I love being in a classroom, not because I lack self discipline but because I learn better when there are other people to add to the conversation. They must be offering extra support if it is all online now? Good luck with it and good on you, the world needs more nurses!

  2. That's a bit sucky about uni, but I think your definition and my definition of what constitutes disturbing news are a little different. Lol! I thought maybe someone had died for a second there! Can't wait to see you guys this weekend!
