I read somewhere that nurses hate that phrase from Animaniacs but since I'm not a nurse yet I figure it's okay still. Plus I know my husband is already having dirty fantasies about it.
I officially registered for school yesterday. It was exhilarating, terrifying, overwhelming and empowering. I am so ready to do this. I'm scheduled for 12 credits plus on the waiting list for one class that could bump me to 16 credits. I'm still not sure if I'll drop something to take that one if it's available or just go balls out and do it. I do have an amazing person lined up to watch Gabe (HI Auntie Sheri!) so no worries about that portion of it.
I'm hoping to really crank things out and petition for the official program for the Spring 2011 semester. That means I'll take courses in the summer semester and then in the fall again. I'm not really sure how a summer semester works for my financial aide though, if I have to take that out of one of my other semesters, or if its on it's own as a semester etc. I'll have to start looking that up after I'm working on stuff during this one.
I ended up taking two online courses (English and Psych) because there was no way to work a good schedule around them otherwise since I need to avoid Tuesdays for in the class room things right now. Then I'm taking a math class, biochem, and on the waitlist for anatomy and physiology part 1.
I'm probably driving my friends and family crazy because I'm quite literally bouncing off the walls about this. I don't think I've ever been quite so excited to start something before and I'm having a hard time containing myself. I'm all over the place about it.
I just can't wait to get started on this part of my life. I feel good about it. I feel like it's the right choice and the right time. I'll figure out what/where we'll go when I'm done when we get there. I've promised Mike that I'll only worry one step ahead of where we are right now to keep myself contained.
I want to give a big thank you to the people who have been very supportive of me even considering this path in life. I want to say thank you to the people who are going to continue to be my cheerleaders through this time. I especially want to tell my hubby that I love him very much because he puts up with me and he's going to have to hold my hand in math anyhow.
