JUNE?!? That's the last time I Posted? WOW

Yeah, I have no excuse why I didn't post during the summer. Now? I'm working part time, school full time and then there's the farm.

This is my last semester before I start my clinical rotation. There's a petition process, although I'm still at a loss WHY I need to ask someone to become an unpaid intern in their clinic while paying the school for the 'privilege' of doing so..but what the hell.

The professors are loading up on the homework. I swear every time I enter a classroom there's a test due. I'd love to practice drawing blood but the other gals in my class are not cooperative. One has anemia, so can't draw hers. One gets woozy, the other has dodgy veins and the last gal is pregnant. Great, wonderful. Um,..yeah.

I drag my ass out of bed, do chores then head on out to the school for either work or class. Then I drag my butt home, do homework, do chores, do more homework. Any chance I get to rest is obliterated by now. Weekends, rush around doing this or that.

I have been meaning to get my sister her birthday card and present now for 2 weeks, but I'm so busy I forget to get it to her.

I'm sick of never having down time. Fed up with the constant demands of I really NEED 3 packets to finish before class?> REALLY???

I tried to get some rest yesterday. Came home tired and drained from a tour of the Red Cross, and it was great, but SO many people, new people, and the effort to keep perky and shit was just......ugh! Introverts get it, Extroverts don't. I wanted time ALONE after I get home. And I was tired. I tried to take a nap in the recliner and the second my eyes closed, NOPE! PET THE CAT!! CAT NEEDS ME!

So instead of trying to take a nap in the recliner, which never happens due to a very petulant and needy 18 year old cat. I said screw it and went to bed............before 9.  That's why I'm up at 4 this morning. At least I'm being left alone for a bit.
