I finished my nursing home rotation today. Believe it or not, I had a good day today. Apparently the patient I had was an agoraphobic (she fears going out in public places) and hasn't left her room in a few weeks and today, I got her to come to arts and crafts. She had a great time. I like seeing people improve, it makes me feel like I am doing well. My patient asked me if I could stay longer or if I was coming back tomorrow, I had to tell her "no." Telling her no actually made me feel sad because I was her to continue to improve--hopefully someone else will figure out how to break through with her. I am an A student in the clinical setting but a B student with the books. I wish I could figure out how to get an A on these stupid tests!
I picked up the pics for Nood's (as Shanna pointed out not everyone know's who that is, it is Roman Noodle's nick name) scrapbook and bought an 8.5x11 scrapbook. I was in the store and looked at the 8x8 and I realized that I wouldn't be able to journal anything so I stepped it up a notch! I was planning on doing one separate for Nood and one seperate for Super (Super Sadie is my other dog, she is a Saint Bernard) but looking through all of Super's pictures I just don't have enough for an entire album. Sadie is afraid of the camera (I know, quite strange) so I think I am just going to do a puppy album and a kitty album.
I planned on coming home tonight and working on my paper or studying and I haven't...whoops. I think I am going to go try to spend the next hour or so working on that paper, I just want to finish the damn thing! Tomorrow I have a 2 hour break between rehab and watching the boys and I think I am going to go try to finish up my note cards for Monday's test. Ah!! So much school not enough play time. T-minus 21 days until my 2 month summer break, I can almost taste the freedom.
