Three Weeks of Glorious Vacation

My first term of my second year in nursing is finally over. I went into my exams with A's and with probably end up with B's following three disastrous exams. I mean HUGE! On the bright side, I am confident I passed the term, but it is pretty damn disappointing to do well all term and then drop a letter grade on account of some crazy-ass exams.

Deep breath. It's over and I can spend the next three glorious weeks reading and writing. Did I mention Scrivener is awesome? I played just a little bit this week in between studying. It is such a little piece of heaven and I haven't gone through all the tutorials yet. Buying a Mac for a 35$ program is hardly economically savvy, but I am not perfect and writing is my soul food so I had tobitch slap my financial conscience and say yes to a Mac, and I am glad I did.

In addition to my not so financially smart purchase, I have also been buying books like they are going out of style and have no clue what to read next. I would like to start my top 100 hundred list in the New Year after I have read the books that cannot fit on my bookcases and have taken root on the wall shelf in my bedroom. The cup have spilleth over, all right. There was a time when I used to put trinkets and picture frames on my bookcase, but that was short lived.

So for now I am thinking I will read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I have read some pretty mixed reviews on it but I am thinking it is right up my alley. I will let you know.

As for the weekly weigh in, it isn't happening this week. My scale is broke, my tape measure is still lost and exams have not been kind to my waist line. I don't need a scale to tell me my ass has gotten bigger this week. But I am still committed and will get back on my horse tomorrow. I hate that losing weight is so constant. You can't ever seem to really break from it because you end up right back where you started.
