Grades confirmed!!

3 A's, 1 B, 3.71 semester GPA.  I'm happy with that!

That gets me on the Dean's List and that's plenty good to keep my hospital funding, which is pretty darn important to my being able to stay in nursing school.

So I've been finished for a week now.  It's been so nice to not be stressing about some paper or quiz or care plan or whatever.  I feel much more calm and relaxed already.  I'm able to sit here at night and watch TV or read a non-textbook and actually enjoy it.  I'm really thankful for the mental break from school.  Although I'll admit I miss my classmates and the daily interaction with people older than 4 and working with patients in clinicals.

On a related note, I've finished season 1 of Mad Men and am starting season 2 tonight.  I love it!  I mean, the way the men treat the women has made me raise an eyebrow more than a few times, and I can't believe how much everyone smokes (everywhere...in the office, in restaurants, on the train, in doctor's offices...).  But the storyline and the characters have sucked me in and I intend to get all 4 seasons watched as I can get the DVD's from the library.  It doesn't hurt that the main character is ~hot~ and so nice to look at.  I would gladly be Don Draper's secretary  ;-)
 
And on that note, Don Draper et al beckon, so it's time to curl up for a few hours of indulgence.

Cheers!
