Here I am again, a few more months down the road. I had no idea how long and hard and fast this last year would be. In 4 weeks I graduate from nursing school! Such an amzing accomplishment! And, also the first big thing I've ever finished in my life.
The last few months have been tumultuous. School has been extremely hectic with many long clinical days. The entire cohort is tense and we are all just ready to be finished and moving on with life. I'm so excited to finally be released into the wonderful world of nursing and gain a bit of autonomy in my daily practices. At this point, I'm hoping to be hired somewhere as a graduate nurse while I await my date to sit for my state licensure. Keep your fingers crossed!
My 5th aniversary came and went without much note. I suppose I expected a big to-do about it because 5 seems like such a milestone, but it wasn't. It's almost like the people who are in my life forgot how bad it was because it's becoming more and more distant with each passing year. Not to mention, that for the last few years right around my aniversary, my wretched sister comes back in the picture and steals all of my thunder. Although, I shouldn't expect anything less. She always knows that if she even hints at getting sober out family will come to her rescue. Ugh.
A few short months and I'll be able to end this relationship I'm in. It's progressed beyond the point of being repairable and it's sucking the life out of me. I have so much to look forward to and I need to keep my eye on the prize!
