I'm a little sad that I didn't take part in Inktober (maybe I can start this week. lol). Is there a daily drawing theme for November? I know for writing there's NaNoWriMo and Movember for mustaches . How about drawing with your less dominant hand? Or since Turkey Day is coming up: daily drawings of food? Foodvember? Or drawing things you're thankful for (i.e. a person, a pet, or even a glass of water) each day?
It feels like it's been forever since my last journal entry! I never even posted my Comic Con review. ^.^; Guess I'll save that for next year. Anyhoo, I started nursing school in August and it's been keeping me pretty busy. Mostly there is a ton of reading to do, but I feel like I get more stressed out over clinicals than the written tests. I'm extremely worried about assessing a patient incorrectly or taking their blood pressure wrong. I know I'm just starting out and need to practice and study more which in turn should boost my confidence, but my brain just won't stop overthinking sometimes. There are times when I seriously don't know if I can make it, but then there are times like right now, where I'm calm and I feel like it'll be okay. It's hard to believe and yet, not that hard to believe that this is just a 2 year program, if that makes any sense. Yesterday, we got checked off on intramuscular injections so next week, we're going to be giving out flu shots at school! It was definitely nerve wracking at first, but kind of cool when we finally did it. We also started our clinicals at a local hospital this week. We're only there once a week from the morning to early afternoon. I'm in a Rehab unit right now for people recovering from injuries. It's a pretty big change from the convalescent home we were in the first couple weeks. On a side note, the hospital is super nice. Our unit is in a slightly older section I think, but the rest of the hospital looks like a hotel (I think it actually was one). We're always so impressed when we walk through the lobby.
-In other news, GISHWHES went quite well. We still don't know who one yet though, but I'll keep you all posted.
-I started to play Animal Crossing again. Just enough so that no one else moves away. lol. I really like the Halloween themed furniture that's out.
-I watched "Gravity". The special effects were pretty cool! I love outer space. lol. Although all that spinning was scary. O_o It had the kind of story that could've worked in any environment where someone was in distress. Also re-watched "The Rock" and saw "Broken Arrow" and "Gleaming the Cube" for the first time. One is a 90s movie and the other is late 80s. Both were very entertaining.
-Watched Torchwood: Children of Earth. T_T It was good, but yeah...I kept thinking about it even the next day. lol
-This Saturday is Free Comic Book Day! Check out what comics you're local comic bookstore may be giving out.
-I'm taking part in the "Light the Night Walk" on Nov. 2nd to help raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you're interested in joining a walk near you or would like to donate, please check out my fundraising page (even a $1 will make a difference! )
