well, when some of the smartest and most logical nursing students can’t get about a D on a midterm, something is fucking wrong.
today was just ridiculous. i don’t know how else to describe it. crazy, maybe? inane? it’s almost midnight and i just got home - i left with people still trying to figure out that exam.
but, i guess it was also pretty funny in a way. cell phones kept going off nonstop about “rumors” on the test -
“did you hear someone got a 86%?" "no way! impossible. that’s like an urban legend.” ”my friend just took it and failed, and so did her friend and his friend” ”i heard i should be fucking scared shitless” ”it can’t really be that bad, right?" "no, it’s worse" ”i’d rather be the guy getting surgery in the question than taking this" "well, i did both so imagine how i feel" ”i know i’m being a bitch but i’ve been here for almost 12 hours" ”how sad, i’m hating on someone who got a C"
suffice it to say, there will be a lot of angry ass future nurses.
“and no matter how unexpected and no matter how windy this road is going to be for me, i’m going to make the most out of it. even if it means going at 210 miles per hour in a world where 60 miles is the limit and driving off course. i think i just have to remember that the road will always end and everything else will just lead up to that glorious and climactic conclusion.”—
According to Greek mytholgy, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their powers, Zeus split them into two parts; condemning them to spend the rest of their lives in search of their other halves.
“That thing, that moment, when you kiss someone and everything around becomes hazy and the only thing in focus is you and this person and you realize that that person is the only person that you’re supposed to kiss for the rest of your life, and for one moment you get this amazing gift and you want to laugh and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that that it will go away all at the same time.”—Drew Barrymore (via quote-book)
“Life’s an awfully lonesome affair. You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even going and coming.”—Emily Carr (devincastro) (via havent-got-a-prayer)
i think 10, 20, 30 years from now, i'm going to miss days like this
i’m going to end up missing spending the whole day at school with friends cramming for an intense midterm. i’m going to miss coffee breaks and trying to find a room in all five floors of the library. i’m going to miss eating in the commons and walking around campus at night.
today, it seems like a pain. i spent 15 hours at school and my eyes are red and sore but, in the future, i know i will miss days like this - days lacking the responsibility that comes with truly being independent. i’m going to miss these days when all i have to worry about is the difference between a wound healing by primary intention and a wound healing by secondary intention.
“The important thing is to not be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past and recognize that every day won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember that it’s only in the black of night that you see the stars, and those stars lead you back home.”—Unknown (via enamour)
