times flies when you're...busy?

So it's been a month since my last post. I'd love to say that so many things have changed, that I have exciting news, etc, but unfortunately I'm currently playing the waiting game.

I have 5 weeks until my pinning (graduation) ceremony. Last week was my spring break, which I spent responsibly by finishing all the papers and care plans and case studies left for the semester. It was rough, but I'm so glad I did it, because guess what? Now it's done.

So I have 2 regular exams and 3 quizzes before finals. Then we have the comprehensive finals from the supplemental textbook company we use, plus a comprehensive-comprehensive final that will cover the entire program. The latter is supposed to determine our readiness to pass state boards.

I've had a job interview and am currently awaiting results. I'm torn on whether I want the job or not. A few more job-related things are in the works, but the hospitals aren't getting around to their new grads until end of April, maybe beginning of May.

So I wait.

Meanwhile, my writing life is whizzing along. Current WIP is so much fun to write; I think it's my favorite thing I've written to date. It's also turning out to be surprisingly short, mostly due to the extremely quick pace (I think). I'm guessing this one's going to ring the bell around 70k. My last 2 novels were just a little shy of 100k each...

My puppy got to swim for the first time last weekend. It was adorable.


How are you?
