Ohh. Emm. Gee.

I knew I had a few things going on these last few weeks of school.  But I after meeting with my groups and getting tasks delegated...well, let me just say that I'm going to be pretty worthless from now until April 11th.  Worthless, other than school work.  I've already warned my family that I might be a little preoccupied and checked out while getting all this stuff done.

So what all do I have to do?  Let's take a lookie-see, shall we?

Due April 5th: CHF Genogram group project for Health Assessment class.  Other group members are doing the research, I'm taking their stuff and compiling it into a 12-page paper, with proper APA in-text citations and works cited page.  Group members will have their research to me by Friday.

Due April 7th: Health Fair presentation on Breast Cancer for retired nuns for Community Health class.  Have to put together a 10-15 minute presentation to give 4 different times, complete with basic cancer facts and breast cancer info.  Group meeting next Tuesday night to go over everything.

Due April 11th: Community Assessment paper and presentation for Community Health class.  Our population is the district of one of the local high schools, with a focus on teaching young mothers the importance of prenatal care (pretty high pregnancy rate at this school).  I'm responsible for doing the community survey part -- getting demographics and general information on the population.  Probably will meet with this group the weekend before the paper is due.

Plus a TNI Exam on the 4th...and weekly busywork for 2-3 more weeks --reading, quizzes, nurse notes.

Oh, and after the 11th?  My care plan...and my portfolio...and my mega important video assessment that serves as my final exam for Health Assessment.  And a final Community Exam 2 weeks from today...and another TNI exam 4 weeks from today.  Plus ATI testing.

So a heads might not see much at this location for awhile.  And when I do come back, I hope I'm not sitting in a corner, rocking back and forth, crying and asking "WHY???  WHY???" over and over again.

*I chose to do this....I chose to do this....*


  1. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
    OK it's a dumb expression, but there is some truth to it.

    p.s. you found a cool countdown til graduation clock.

  2. Actually, it's the decision you made "I chose this" that will get you through. You REALLY want it, and when you want something, somehow it does happen! :)

    Good luck! :)

  3. Oh Kendra I feel your pain!!! After last week's joke of a spring break I haven't even regrouped yet to figure out where the rest of my projects lie and dates for everything else going on.
    I am recovering from my huge exam yesterday and my 12-minute presentation on Protein that I'm barely thinking straight right now just to catch up on my blog readings.
    We’ll make it and when I get my facebook reactivated after this semester we can catch up on things that are important in our own personal lives again... sounds like a great plan to me.
