Just waiting...

I'm actually getting pretty anxious to get back to uni. As good as it sounds, a three month break just feels too long for me, as I've been working far too much.

Subjects this semester are:

Acute Care A
Medications in Nursing
Clinical Assessment & Decisions

These aren't including the two subjects that I'm doing via correspondence from another university on the other side of the country, which are:

Introduction to Chemistry
Introduction to Physics

Am I going to handle it all alright? I only hope so. One thing that would probably help is if I bought my $990 worth of textbooks. Oh well, I suppose I don't really need them all. Last year I made it through with only two of the required ten or so books.

I guess I can't complain about the money side of things seeing as I don't have to pay tuition for years to come; probably my favorite thing about Australia.

  2. This blog seems VERY interesting. I'll be following your progress for sure.

  3. welcome to Australia, I'm starting uni this year too, I'm looking forward to it

  4. That's a lot of money for books. Almost makes me not want to go to college.

  5. hope it all works out for you, medical school can be a lot of work, my sister went through it for 5 years and thats what she told me

  6. Physics kicked my ass in college... but you can do it! Ill be following for sure.

  7. Good luck man. I would imagine it'd be VERY difficult to return back to school after being away for a while. Following!

  8. Don't worry, once you're 3 weeks in you won't be so excited to be there anymore! :P

  9. Hahah, I'm sure I'll get tired of it quickly, the hardest part is dealing with the other students!

    Rachel, it was difficult in some ways, but far far easier than I thought it would be. The reason I chose a course like nursing is because it's suppose to be one of the easiest, and I wasn't even sure if I was going to get through it. But now I'm doing really well and I was wondering what the hell I was worrying about. All it takes is a bit of determination!

    And thanks for the follows and the support guys, much appreciated!
