I should be studying right now for my three finals, starting tomorrow and ending on May 6th, 2021. But I decided to make a quick post about my thoughts and feelings as I am nearing down to the end of the semester.
I know I have mentioned a couple of times in my previous posts that nursing school is challenging, and one needs to stay determined and committed. I have lost motivation to study many times, but I kept pushing myself because I am so close to the finish line. There have been times when I have cried and felt frustrated, but I was not alone. All my classmates were suffering along with me. We had a group chat with 7-8 of us, and everyone seemed to be going through the same emotions. I have made some really amazing friends, and if it wasn’t for them, I would have probably had a complete mental breakdown.
Anyways, I cannot wait to take my last final, which is the HESI EXIT EXAM that I am absolutely dreading. All the exams are cumulative, so I am a little worried because I haven’t had the time to continuously brush up on the old material throughout the semester. Having a family makes it a lot tougher because I am usually running on my children’s timetable. I hope that the fall semester will be a lot better when I can go back to campus in person, and my oldest will be back in school.
I think for my finals, I timed myself really poorly. I was supposed to start studying a week ago. I only started yesterday, which basically gives me 48 hours to complete everything. I was on top of my game at the beginning of the semester, and I spiraled down towards the end. Hopefully, the summer will recharge me back again, and I can start my second semester of nursing school strong. So, I am studying the newer materials first and familiarizing myself with the content, and doing a lot of practice questions. I will be skimming through my notes on the older topics. I don’t plan on cramming anything. I am just going to stay calm and take it one hour at a time at this point.
So that is it for today’s post. I really wanted to come in here and just give a quick update on what’s going on. I will definitely be posting more after this week, but I don’t want to make any promises. I really appreciate everyone who has subscribed to my blog. It really means a lot to me because it is what keeps me motivated to continue blogging. I will try to bring in more exciting and fun content.
