i've been m.i.a.
i had final exams.
and final papers.
and final projects.
and final presentations.
but it's all coool now.
i got an A in photo.
and an A in blood banking (hell yessssssssss.)
and As in tissue culture and molec bio. :)
those were the classes i was most worried about and now i can sleep in peace. my idea of knocking out the caffeine gene in coffee beans with a transposon went over well (and i just pulled that out of my ass in a day) and my lab report turned out ok even though i had to draw some of the diagrams myself! :P a move in the twelfth hour saves me! (that and As and Bs on my quizzes, i guess.) and my case study presentation on Jk factors in blood banking got me an A! my partner and i got 100% on it and it pulled me from a B to an A! (which means i must've gotten a B on a final exam glory glory glory.... i only studied two hours for that!)
i'm amazed at my own good grades... i thought this was going to be the semester of hell!!!!
frak, i am never going to do 12 hour school days again! >:O
(famous last words.)
ok, but the horrors are not over yet.
i have all this stress over clincals for next semester.
tons of paper work to do and a TB test that i have to get re-done because of a miscommunication. plus my first aid is going to expire in april but clinicals lasts until may! and it is going to be litterally impossible to get recertified without missing a day in clinicals! at least my CPR is good for another year. and we had a required but not graded (that statement alone is fucked up) exam tomorrow and today we had a mandatory lab cleaning day.
to top it off with a cherry, i am siiiiick. i am feeling miserable and just want to press the fast forward button on this week. there is more more more but more stuff i can rant about (mostly the dumbassery of the professors and director of my program- and i am not afraid to say this to their faces if they pull another trick on me) but i don't even want to waste time thinking about it.
(on a seperate note, i would also like to hate on some of the counselors at my college who wait until the last minute to get their shit together and now i have to deal with them on my last fucking day of work with a bad attitude and a runny nose.)
i've been trying to take a zen approach to this. i will be the calm center of the universe. i am the zen master. it's so hard not to be passive agressive about the whole situation. instead i'm going to try to be optimistic. optimism.
i really don't want to.
if there is such thing as good news,
the good news is
kaiser said business attire is preferred over scrubs.
yey, i get to dress up for a whole month (even though it's under my lab coat)!
time to shop for new outfits!
