I’m done!!!

…my first semester of nursing, that is. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wrote my exam for Intro to Professional Growth at 9:00 this morning, and was out of there by 10:30. Sweeeeeet!

Oh, and I should also mention that I got my last paper back in Self & Others. I got 100% on all 3 papers…in a class where there is no exam, just essays. Yeah. I got 100% in a class. I’m proud of myself, but also a little digusted at myself. Do I even HAVE a life???!!! Yeah, I’m kidding. Seriously? I rock so hardcore. Susan thought I’d be BORED at Cambrian…instead, I’m being challenged academically and CLEARLY I’m rising to the challenge. Case closed!

…Now, it’s time to get busy with the knitting. I have a LOT of people to knit for, and very little time to do it in. I plan on finishing a few projects today,ย then getting VERY drunk within the comfort of my own home tonight. No drinking and driving for this pretty gal!

In case I don’t get a chance to post before the holidays are over, I’m sending out a huge MERRY XMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR to the blogosphere! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

So close…

I finished my final paper of the semester this afternoon around 3:30. Since then, I’ve been alternately watching season 1 of “Dexter”, editing other people’s papers, and working on Eric’s sweater and Daddy’s mittens. (But sssshhhh, Dad doesn’t know I’m making him mittens!) I just can’t wait for this semester to end so that I can knit some more!

The weirdest thing happened this morning. I woke up to find that I was freezing cold. This made no sense, because the heater was on. So I got up to investigate…and the freaking door was wide open! Apparently the wind was blowing so strongly last night that it blew open the door. Luckily, we also have a screen door, so no people or beasts wandered in to steal our shit. (Actually, that was my first thought, although Kali would get 20 lashes with a wet noodle for being a bad guard dog!) So from now on, the door is to be firmly closed and LOCKED before bed. Case closed! ๐Ÿ™‚

OK. I’ve been sitting in the library since 3:00, waiting to see if people would come get help on their papers. I offered myself up as a sort of peer tutor for the last assignment for one of my classes.

Wouldn’t ya know it? Only 5 or 6 people came. Now it is 5 PM and I am tired, hungry and bored. Time to get the hell out of Dogde.

I’m gonna go home, have a bath, knit like hell, and relax with my hubby. Who knows – I might go to bed early, ’cause I’m TIRED!!!
