did i give up my freedom, friends, and finances for this? yes, resounding yes

Why hello, bliggity blog.

How have you been?

Feeling neglected?  Abandoned?  Alone?

As if you've been forgotten and left all on your lonesome?

It's crazy how much things have not slowed down.  It really hasn't been until this very week that I feel I've had time during the day to do all I want to do.  The holidays kept us hopping, like most, but it was welcome.  We did a whole lot of nothing during 2012 so it was nice to get out of town and visit some folks and have a change of scenery.  As I said, at this point after having the kids back in school for a whole week, I've finally found time and place to get some things done.

Mostly my goals include studying for my NCLEX-RN exam.

Yes, I have it scheduled.

No, I won't tell you when it is.

I'm thinking, I'll tell everyone when I pass, and not a minute sooner.  I don't want to have to go through the shame and guilt of updating everyone on a failed attempt. 

So yes, I'm taking the test come JanuFebruMarchilMay.  I'll let you know when I've succeeded.

Hecks to the yes I'm nervous about it.

The culmination of 3+ years of schooling and testing and pre-reqs and skills and clinicals and labs and papers and studying and stressing and planning and paying and sleepless nights and hefting around 40+lbs of books and printing page after page of power points and great lectures and not-so-great lectures and quizzes and HESIs and finals and instructors and study groups and and gray hairs.

All for this.

What's to be nervous about?  :)
