The countdown

Well, well, well...time is slowly creeping up on me. There are now ELEVEN (11) days until the first day of NURSING SCHOOL!
The real drama begins on Sunday though--I am moving out of my home and into a dorm. I'll be on my own for the first time. I am so ready and excited.
I have almost everything I need--dishes, pans, towels, bed in a bag, school supplies, and my unform is almost complete!
I went on campus the other day to get my books. Supposedly there are eight books just for one class. Unfortunately, my drive was kind of pointless because I could only get four books--the rest were in boxes.
My fundamentals professor already posted things for us to do online. We have to complete this medical terminology course online that consists of 16 quizzes and 16 exams. Yowza. It has to be done by the 11th. AND OF COURSE, the book that I needed for that wasn't available.
Others things that I am excited about--next Thursday we have a welcoming dinner from the college. I need to bring a side dish. My mom has a mean recipe for macaroni salad, so I might bring that.

That is pretty much all that's been going on. I'll post again once I am on campus. Wish me luck!
