Ten on Tuesday

I am still alive. The past week or so has been INSANE -as graduation is approaching. It doesn't feel real at all. This is kind of a fitting 10 questions - since yesterday I took my Comprehensive ATI (which is kind of like a mock NCLEX) and finshed ALL THINGS school!

1. Where did you go to college?

Grand Canyon University. The actual university is in Phoenix, AZ - and to be honestly I've only actually been on the campus one time. My nursing program was held here in Tucson at the 3rd floor of the Art Institute! Random, huh?

My 1st 2 years of college were at UND in Grand Forks, ND.

I also spent 1 semester between UND and GCU at Pima community college. Not by choice. I had to take these Biblical and Liberal arts classes for prerequisites to get into the nursing program. Not my finest semester. In fact, it was miserable. I cried almost every day I had to go to that school - it was scary.
2. What did you study?
Nursing! But this is the track that led me to nursing.

Music Eduation (for 2 weeks of my freshman year), and then Occupational Therapy, and finally Nursing!

3. Was college really all that it was cracked up to be?
I think so....... I had kind of a non-traditional college experience with moving across the country midway. I don't feel like my 20 months of nursing school was "college".

I don't regret one moment of it, though! :)

4. How far were you from home?
About 1000 miles. 1-2 days of driving or 4 hours flying!

When I was at UND I was a 2 hour drive from home. I definitely missed that luxury when I moved to Tucson.

5. Did you have the same roommate all four years?
Nope! I lived in dorms, a sorority, an apartment, and then I got married after my 3rd year!!
6. Where did you order food from at 2am?
I never ordered food at 2am.To be honest, I never stayed out that late! I was always the girl who had his internal "curfew" that said, "I need to be back to my dorm/apartment/house at this time so I can get a good night of rest"

Especially my last 2 years - I think there was only 1 instance where I even stayed up until 2 am......

7. Did you date in college or were you tied down?
My 1st year I didn't date at all. But my 1st week of my sophomore year I started dating Ryan!
8. Funniest drunk college moment?
My 21st birthday. My parents suprised me and visited me on my 21st birthday (best gift EVER)! I ordered 2 drinks, and got our whole table kicked out of the restaurant by 9:00 pm for being too loud with my stories. I was in bed by 10......

9. Did you make it to class on time?
Yes. I'm like clock work. If class starts at 8:00 am -- I was in my chair at 7:59 am.
10. What was your favorite class in college?
I loved Complex Care which was this year. I had an excellent teacher with so much experience - and I loved the clinicals.

I also loved Anatomy Lab my freshman year! We got to work with human cadavers - which was really cool!

It was rare for me to be up at 2 am as well... I didn't go out on the weekends much since I usually waitressed on Friday & Saturday nights. So if I was coming home at 1 am, it was because I closed at work!

It doesn't seem that long ago that you graduated from high school, does it? This is such an exciting time for you - can't wait to see you and Ry! Fun, fun, fun!

If I could afford it, I would come down there to celebrate with you and your parents! Enjoy!!!!!

Lol that 21st birthday story was hilarious!
I did stay up late in college but now I can't make it past like 10 pm!
