As of today I have officially completed my first semester in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program. Oh heck ya! It feels so darn good to be finished. I feel like I can breathe again!
This past weekend has been so crazy. I have stayed up until crazy hours getting about 3 hours of sleep a night to study for my exams. I felt crazy~ I started laughing about weird things, and being all silly and weird (like when at a sleepover you get all loopy at 4 am). I have also had a continuous eye twitch for the past week. (probably because of my lack of sleep)
I also had about three panic attacks, and five “I want to give up” moments but I got through them and here I am! I made it. Almost dead- but I made it. I did well in some classes, and not as well as I had hoped in others but- all that matters right now is that I SURVIVED. A letter grade does not define me. What defines me is all the effort I put into my work.
It is now 11:14 pm, and my eyes can barely stay open. I want to lay my head down so badly- but I also wanted to document this feeling and this post so I can look back and remember the insanity of my first semester.
I can’t wait to get back on my blogging game, type up the writing challenges I have fallen behind on due to school, and enjoy the holidays and my break.
Thank you all for being patient with me during my little break.
