Red Eyed Zombie

If the next time you see me I appear to be in a zombie-like, sleep walking, daze...don't be surprised. 
A new full time job and a 20 credit hour semester are bound to have that affect. For the next 16 weeks, my schedule will go a little something like this:

MONDAY: Work at the Ranch from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m....except for every other Monday when I leave at 2:30 to get to my Spiritual Meditation in Healing class from 3-6p                                

TUESDAY: Nursing in Global Perspective....Senior Seminar...Senior Project...Nursing Leadership and  Development...Parasitology...Parasitology Lab. Yep...I'm in class from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. without a scheduled break. 

WEDNESDAY: Work...Work...Work...7--5 

THURSDAY: Back at the Ranch from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m....except to leave for a few hours to attend Parasitology.

FRIDAY: Working the day away at the Ranch.
ONCALL: Monday through Friday and Every other weekend

Luckily for me, the ranch hands like me enough to work with my school schedule this last semester and let me work 10 hour days to make up for being gone on Tuesdays. Now, I just need to figure in time for the gym, homework, and house work. Oh ya...and there's also that Senior Project/Final Clinical I've got to squeeze in during graveyards or on the weekends.

When I explained my schedule to my Nursing Leadership and Development teacher, he looked me right in the eye and said, "There are two things you're going to need to make it through this semester. Tylenol and Xanax." 

Who can write me a prescription?

Might I also suggest Diet Coke?

(PS: If you die from exhaustion this semester, I get your car)
Love you!

Sarah: If only I liked soda...I'd be drinking it by the bucket. Although, I may acquire a taste for it over the next 4 months...desperate times call for desperate measures.

Dana: Deal! How about "No Strings Attached" this Friday?

Rach: I'll meet you on the scary trail hidden in the bushed. Bring a 4 months supply of all of the above.

I need to talk to you, missy! Jamestown is soooo not the same without your presence. Question: I signed up for that Anatomy course through BYU Independent Study, but it doesn't have the physical lab, just virtual, my point being, you still got into the UVU program with that course? Because I looked up the transfer credit and the class I'm signed up for does not apply to the UVU Nursing pre-requisite. Calm my soul!
