I’ll tell you why – it’s fucking finals week. I feel like never, ever in my personal history have I spent this much effort studying for exams. Or for, like, anything. I mean, it’s important that I know this stuff because I’ll be taking care of people, but seriously … I can only imagine what my GPA would have been if I spent my first college go-’round with this much enthusiasm and dedication. I probably could have graduated early, too.
I’ve been spending too much time regretting the past, so I guess it’s time to actually move on instead of pretending that I’m okay with the stupid shit I did when I was younger.
Nursing school is hard, in case anyone was wondering.
One of my classmates came up with this idea for a Power Pose, a superhero standing position (with your hands on your hips) as some type of hype-up song plays in the background (we do this before tests because we are dorks), and honestly? I love the idea. It’s like pregaming for a night out, except that it’s for a test that takes place at 0800 and involves you remembering things instead of forgetting them.
And since finals week is next week … somehow? I figure it’s best to get myself pumped up as much as I possibly can. Plus, I need that emotional momentum to get through the last couple of projects I have due by Friday and Saturday. Now, my list below is definitive, and I will take no guff for my choices. Make your own Power Pose Playlist.
Although now I’m considering getting with my classmate and coming up with a playlist with our combined pepping-up powers for ultimate nursing school domination …
