I kid you not, taking classes during COVID is saving my butt right now. Despite being out of work and having virus-related nerves, I have something with which I can completely engage and my days are moving much faster than I would have expected from being confined to my home. It's 8:54pm and I cannot figure out where this entire day went.
That'll be a nope....
I've got my two hardest exams this weekend. One over 6 chapters of Anatomy & Physiology and the other over 9 labs. For some strange reason they decided to make these into two tests and torture us twice instead of getting it all over with at once.

My little sister and I had a girl's day so we built a puzzle, listened to music, soaked in … Continue reading Unsteady Uproot – “To ski or not to ski” (Wednesday, January 8th)
My biggest fear when I considered this move wasn't even about failing. I knew failure would be an option. I might not be able to find a job or an apartment I could afford or - dare I even say it - I may never be accepted into a physical therapy assisting program.
