0830-1430: Make up my hours at work that I took off due to studying on Monday
1500: Get home, clean and do laundry that I’ve been neglecting. Get organized for school next week, review lecture notes from previous week.
2000-2200: Pet sitting jobs


The semester is actually calming down a bit. Earlier in the semester there is no way I could have taken a few nights “off” from studying/homework during the week! I also really need to get my butt back in the gym – the last month has been so hectic and I’ve been making excuses left and right but that needs to change. I am counting down the days until the semester is over.

All I  have left to do is:

2 Pharm quizzes

Simulation day for Concepts

1 clinical day

Head to Toe final check off

Fundamentals HESI


So close… so, so, close!
