Oh, the Joys of a College Student

Here is an interesting story I thought ya'll might enjoy!

A Day in my Shoes:
I started off the week Monday morning at 7:30 am. I walked into class with books in one hand and coffee in the other (prepped for the day ahead of me). Once I got out of class, I went to the library on the “quiet floor” to get some studying done. I had one of the most productive days I’ve ever had! I finished up assignments, wrote a paper and typed my notes saving ALL the work on my jump drive. The rest of the day I spent going in and out of classes. After my last class was over I decided to go back to the library but this time I went to the 5th floor (the super “geeky quiet floor”) to do more note taking. I finished the night feeling very industrious. Once I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore, I got my books together and walked to my car. I was driving home singing along to the radio when I realized….{Here is where the story takes a bad turn}…I had left my jump drive in the computer! AHHH! So what did I do? I turned all the way around in search of my jump drive. Needless to say, I was very thankful the person who used the computer after me turned it into the front desk. So I retrieved my handy dandy memory device and headed back home…once again. Moral of the story- Do not leave your jump drive in the computer!

Now, all joking aside -The past few days have been VERY busy but in a good way. I spent last weekend cramming for my first anatomy test. I had an extreme case of the “test jitters.” After I took the test on Monday anxiety set it. I couldn’t rest until I found out what I got. Well, the results were posted yesterday {drum roll please} I GOT AN A! woo hoo : ) I guess all the time I spent “getting geeky” paid off!

Anywho…it’s off to bed for me now! I hope everything is going well for you all.

good for you being industrious and studious, maybe reading your blog will make some of it rub off on me.

WOOHOO on that A!!

Leaving the jump drive in the computer sounds like something I would do! And the library was a bad place for me...it was always a little too quiet. I ALWAYS ended up falling asleep within about 20 minutes of being there. It the dang comfortable chairs that did it to me.

Wow, what a blessing you were able to get your jump drive! I probably would have cried if I had lost it!

I'm with Amber...the library was always a terrible place for me to study. I needed noise, or my apartment. There were always so many other fun things to do at the library besides study. But, I'm happy you've found some good places to study. That always helps. And, props on that A!
