Frustration and second-guessing

Why oh Why do I always do this??? I go through a test once and I feel like I did really well. Then I go back over it and second guess myself!! I would've only missed on question it I had just trusted myself in the first place instead of changing my answers!!! Now I missed 10 questions and have a good 'ol 71%! And guess what!! It was an actual test!! Not a quiz!! I feel like hitting myself in the head right now!!!!!

Soooo..... today Michael bought me a ring!!! We are not "officially" engaged yet.... in fact I have absolutely no idea when he is going to officially propose.... he has kept me totally in the dark as to what he has planned.... in fact it is making me quite nervous.... I really hope he doesn't do something that will embarrass me in the process! Anyways.... here is a picture of the ring and the band.... of course once we are married I am going to have to get another band (one that is simple and doesn't have any stones) to wear at work. Diamonds and hospitals just don't mix very well!
The only real diamonds are the center stones and they are only 1/4 of a caret. But I didn't even want that much.... I don't really care about fancy expensive rings..... I would rather be able to take a nicer honeymoon then Michael spend a ton of money on a ring. So here it is! What do you guys think? I know I love it!! And it looks totally amazing on my hand! I can't wait until it is mine to wear everyday instead of just trying it on a couple of times!!

Not so bad!

So we had another quiz Yesterday and I got a 100% on it! I think for the first one that teacher kind've decided to scare us so that we would study harder..... I know I am!! I have another week of clinicals left on 2a (post op) so maybe I'll get to see a surgery this week.... I almost got to last week, but my patient ended up not having to go. But I did get to use a dopplar for the first time! It was so cool! Then we took the dopplar and listened to the heartbeat of Leslie's baby!! (She is one of the girl's in our class). It was soo sweet!

I officially just failed my first quiz!! It was on the urinary system and was not what anyone expected.... I got a stinking 43% on it!! The bad thing is that I knew 3 other questions.... I just couldn't pull the answers out of my brain!! :( Well What do they expect when they load us up with a bunch of clinical HW and don't give us any time to study for our classes. Oh well.... at least now we all know what to expect! I know how to study for this teacher now....

Clinicals and election!

Clinicals have been going really good! I've had to literally gag a few times and have had beds that I changed the linins in just mere minutes before get totally cover in..... well you get the idea! LOL! I'm really enjoying them though! Especially now that I have gotten my work schedule under control so that I actually get sleep now! I've been on the respiratory floor (5a) for two weeks. I've gotten to know patients and staff and I really like it! Next week I will be on 2a which is postop! Yay! Plus I'll be with Mrs Nichols!
So how do I feel about our brand new president elect? I'm ok with it for the most part. I do not think he is a bad person and I think he really does have good intentions.... and I truely hope everything goes good for these next four years! The only thing that has gotten me (VERY) upset is the fact that I was called a racist MANY times yesterday to the point where I finally cracked and yelled at some people! I am not a racist and just because I did not vote for Obama does not make me a racist. Color has absolutely nothing to do with anything to me.... I made a list of pros and cons for Obama and McCain and then chose which one fit my lifestyle and beliefs better! I told someone that at work last night and she proceeded to go "and you voted for McCain?" in a very mean and rude tone! I looked at her and looked at her again and then just changed the subject! So basically people need to get over themselves and not take stuff so personally!
