Exams, Assignments and End of Semester 1

It's been a couple of weeks since I have updated. A couple of crazy weeks. I've almost finished my first semester with just two exams and one practical test to go. I'm still loving nursing school, but am ready for a break.

This last part has probably been the hardest for me as I've been going through a bad bout of insomnia. Until a week or two ago I hadn't slept for more than an hour or two at a time, averaging 4-5 hours sleep a night. It really wasn't good. I was unable to speak properly or form a sentence and on one day realised that I missed my bus stop an hours ride from the stop! During this period I had my vital signs practical exam, which I failed. I couldn't even hold anything without dropping it. A nightmare.

I'm sleeping a little better now, which is fantastic. I've also been studying a lot in the hopes I will get some good exam results. So far I have been really pleased with how I have gone with my assignments and that the work I have been putting in has paid off.
