Ten Things Thursday

With school starting this week, my life again has "meaning and purpose" and I thought I would blurb out some of my thoughts bullet-style. Being Thursday, I will just jump on the 10 things Thursday Bandwagon!!!

  1. School started Tuesday!! I am so grateful for my parents and their never-ending support. Without them, I would not have been able to start this semester!!
  2. I am eventually going to become and RN, but I'm starting out focusing on my LVN.
  3. Hopefully it will only take me 3-4 long semesters to complete my degree. That depends on how much I can take in the summer/mini sessions.
  4. I really enjoy learning. Nerd.
  5. Speaking of being a nerd, when I got my textbooks on Friday, I immediately began reading my A&P text, outlining the first chapter, making flash cards and visual aides. Sanford has really given me grief about this!!
  6. During Tuesday's lab I was the only one taking "notes" regarding cell phone/tardy policies. And of course the prof pointed that out to the class, asking for a copy of my notes. NERD.
  7. College-life has changed so much since I graduated with my BA in 2004. Everything is online: assignment submission, syllabi, so on and so on.
  8. Since I'm going to college in the same town where I taught high school for the first four years of my teaching career, I am getting a lot of strange looks from former students. None of them have had the guts to talk to me yet!!
  9. College life and my scales are really digging each other. I'm not sitting at home, so I'm not snacking. And when I am at home I am too busy being nerdy to think about eating!!
  10. I am taking a Nutrition class. The prof is a year younger than me....but I think *hope* I will get a lot out of the class. Our "Critical Thinking Project" for the semester is log our food intake on and e-mail the results of a 3 day span to the prof. Kinda cool!!


  1. good for you for going back to school. screw those gossipy town folk. you are going to continue to make a difference in the lives of others. Yippie.

    I'm a learning nerd too. I would totally be a professional student if I could afford it.

  2. Good for you, going back to school is huge! I am so happy you are enjoying it!

  3. Congrats on going back to college. I'm sure it must be weird taking classes with your former students, but interesting :o)
