In honor of the new Mission Impossible movie (I have seen 0/4 of these movies, BTW) I would like to present the scenario that has been my life for the last three days. Without the overly exuberant couch bouncing--although I am tempted.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: two final papers. 16 and 19 pages respectively in APA format. to be accomplished in 48 hours. On Thanksgiving weekend. With a four year old. Oh yeah, and a practical skills demonstration exam immediately following the papers.
I believe 2 papers in <2 days is a new record. One I hope to never surpass. Why, Why! do I procrastinate until the last possible second? All I can say is I finished them. Grade on Paper 1: A. Grade on Paper 2: jury's still out. Practical skills demonstration exam: Passed. Just don't ask me if my house is clean or my hair is combed. Or when my last shower was. At least my Kiddo is clean and dressed appropriately. That's right folks. Nursing school is hardcore. Sometimes success can only be achieved by sacrificing the simple joys--like showers. But tonight....is a benadryl night. I've got 8 hours of sleep coming my way, baby. Don't say I'm not a fun girl.
