First day back

So the first day back went pretty good. I'm sure that I'm going to come to hate Mondays pretty fiercely, as I start with a two hour lecture at 9am, followed by a two hour class, we then have a one hour lunch break then a two hour lecture and two hour class again. I don't know if it's just me, but nine hours on a Monday seems pretty intense.

It was good to get back into it though, to see everyone from last year that I haven't kept in contact with and also to get back into the swing of learning things. As apposed to last year, all the subjects this year are very nursing-based. Acute Care, Assessment and Decisions and Medications in Nursing. I suppose it's good to get into the practical side of things and especially medications, but I already feel that I'm missing science subjects. Good then, that I am taking chemistry and physics this year as extras.

I've felt the need to shave my beard for the last month or so, and I kept telling my self that I would before uni stated again, however I never got around to it. No one really seemed to make comment, but I think people are questioning as to why I would have such a thing on my face. It's not exactly well kept, it's really just a product of my laziness. I don't know why my beard is significant, but I can see myself looking back at this post in a year or two and laughing at it. I'll have to try and get a picture of it on here, which is difficult because Corrin (fiance) doesn't have the usb cable to hook up her camera to the computer. I also find it funny that one of my favorite hobbies is taking pictures, and I have about 12 cameras, but not one of them is digital...

On a side note, my cat Pippin will not shut the hell up. I suppose it's time to feed the little fatty. I do have a picture of him available, so enjoy.

Thanks again for the interest and the well wishes in the comments, I really do appreciate them.

 

Here he's decided that my pants make a warm bed immediately after ironing them early one morning.

  2. To me shaving is always some kind of "wake up call". When I'm "procrastinating" (=being lazy) and I have to start doing shit again, I shave my beard first. Helps every time ;)

  3. Pekkak, I think I feel that same way about it. Maybe I'm not quite ready to get back into the study intensively?

    Haha, on the other hand I know my brother grew a very impressive beard over the course of his thesis.

  12. Digital cameras aren't that great. 35mm is much more flexible so long as you have your own darkroom.

  14. Thanks for the support everyone. And anoodle, I agree, I really love shooting on film. I know some people think it's just for hipsters and everything. But I feel that it makes each shot count so much more, and it makes you really try.

    Especially when it costs about a dollar a shot to get them developed somewhere good. I guess I really do need my own darkroom...
