Here I am again ...

OKey so I am on hold with the County Courthouse.. eternal hold.. just keeps repeating.. all our lines are busy .. so I figured.. heh.. might as well do something.. i can update my blog.

So why am I calling the County Courthouse? Well, there was this little thing called JuryDuty that I was supposed to go to. And, I totally forgot to keep calling the after 5:30 pm thing. I was supposed to show up one day and I just totally blanked out. So then they sent me one of these postcards, says show up on Monday. Well, this Monday marks the return to school. And my frist day is Monday at 4:40 pm. Well I sure dont want to be late to my first day of school. Forget it. So either they have to say, okey we wont keep you past 3, or they maybe they will tell me to just come in on Tuesday instead.

Still on hold.

OK I passed 3rd semester wooohooooo! Got an 89.08% in the class, which means i missed an A by a miniscule amount. OH well ..

ooh ringing.. hang on... well thats no good.. she is in another City.. so transferring to the local courthouse. And now I think they hung up on me. Lovely. Oh no.. she was there. She said the chances were good that I would get out in time for school. Well, I better get out at 3. Cause I need to drive bout 30 minutes to school and I have to be early cause I am anal retentive like that for the first day of school. Have to pick out a spot!

Anyhow.. yeah we impeached the President of the class. BUT, after that was done, she stood up and gave a speech and said she resigned. LOL.. whaaaatever.

I have clinical this semester with these juvenile classmates. All semester.. every weekend. BUT I can safely say, there were some people I went to clinical with last semester that I didnt see all weekends sometimes. We are split up in different depts. This semester its the ICU and the Emergency Dept. Should be quite interesting.

I still have yet to instill a fun and exciting urinary cathetar into anyone... would anyone like to volunteer? No? anyone anyone? Bueller??

Okey, thought not. Got an IV into someone though, I felt very achieved after that. My friend S has not gotten one in yet, she keeps blowing the vein :(

I must say that getting the IV in was pretty much luck for me. My nurse kept saying, think light, think light, and poof it worked. Course that was the second stick. The poor patient was in pain and probably wanted to smack me. But I apologized profusely for stabbing her with a huge needle.

Anyhow.. do I feel like a nurse yet? No. But I will. I have heard this 4th semester is going to be a bitch. But it pulls everything together and you feel as if you know what you are doing a lot better in this semester. God help me. LOL.

Well tomorrow going to study group to study for the medication test on Saturday. Now, normally I would blow off study group that is one hour away .. to study for a test I will more than likely pass without studying and when I mean pass, I mean that in the most loose sense of the term. ie I will probably "just" pass. BUT we are going to A's house and A makes the BEST Mexican food. So hello? of course I am going.. free food.. all i can eat :P

OKey done boring you all ..

Have a wonderful day.

Though those high school day were over

So i dont kow.. some people loved high school and others hated it. I was a high school hater.

And now here, millions of years later, I feel as if I have returned. Why, you ask?

Well you probably didnt ask, but I'm going to tell you.

In our first semester, we nominated people to office. We didnt really know the members, we just nominated whoever. We found out later it was for the whole entire nursing school.

Our President, is a lying, two faced bitch.

The Vice President is much of the same.

Sad, but true.

They have no communication skills. We graduate in less than 5 months. Up to last month we had no idea what was going on with graduation. The President was harping on us for the whole two first semester for us to get our dues in. Fundraisers.. argh... we were harassed to give money for graduation. There was constant talk about the graduation "pinning ceremony"

But yet, after the money was gathered, we heard nothing.

Where is it going to take place?
What do we have to wear?
What about flowers?
How many people can we bring?
Do we have to order our own invitations?
Caps? no caps?

On and on the list of questions grew. Finally, I, the secretary said to the treasurer, look we arent getting any answers from the Pres and VP.. we need to get out and find out some answers. We made an appt with the Dean. We took our list of questions. We asked them. I wrote out all the information and gave it to all the students.

President got pissed. Then she decided to make an appt with the Dean.

So they went over all my information .. and then we had a meeting between officers where pretty much the President changed everything I had done so far to help the rest of the class know whats going on.

I had made up ballots where everyone could vote on guest speakers, awards, presenters, caps or no caps, etc.. and she basically said.. no I'm doing them over.

Basically I guess the gist of where I am going is that she is trying to make this her "personal project" Making everything *her* way or the highway.

Now, when we voted her in last year, we didnt know how ineffective she would be at representing the class. Now we do. The class has spoken of impeaching her and the VP.

The President is there for nothing more than to give herself the title and the credit for doing everything her way. She cares nothing for what the rest of the class wants.

Then last night she had the audacity to say in front of other students, that "she washes her hands" of me and the treasurer.

Here she is saying she was going to take all of the funds out of our account, she is making plans for all of us that we dont even have a clue of. She talks about using all the rest of the money for a nice dinner for the whole class, yet she is going to cut expenses on flowers, the pins, the candles, etc. for the ceremony.

I dont know.. I am angry.

I dont want to be the President. I want someone else in who can be partial and do whats best for all of the students without resorting to childish backstabbing and talking behind others back. I cringe when i think of how she is even going to work in the real world and be a nurse. She doesnt care about people, only herself.

I wouldnt want a nurse like that.
