One More Semester Down
Well, I finally made it through this horrid semester, even if just by the skin of my teeth. My sincerest apologies to everyone I have pissed off, snapped at, hurt, or left feeling abandoned these past 5 months. I've been a wee bit on the depressed side (understatement) and unable, and honestly, unwilling, to pull myself out of my funk. Instead I have been wallowing in a pit of despair surrounded by a stench borne of self-pity, anger, and only showering once every 3 days. Grades kind of got pushed by the wayside, and I'm just happy to be finished. Hopefully a couple weeks at home with my family will set me straight before my last semester of real classwork. After that I just have to survive a year of clinical rotations and somehow pass the board exams. No problem though right? Eek! However, the prospect of finally starting my career after a grand total of 20 years in school is pretty exciting! As is the idea that I can potentially move back home to live near my family and my soon to be newlywed sister. It won't be long before I can be a real person again! I guess I'm getting ahead of myself though. For now, I'm just glad to have a chance to breathe.
