The End is Nigh

Honestly, I have nothing to post and don't really have any crochet updates. Just figured I'd write to let y'all know I'm not dead or something

I just finished the worst semester of nursing school. Literally. All my grades are in. I passed! I'm thrilled but I'm also so exhausted from this semester that I don't feel I can adequately express my enthusiasm without wanting to take a nap after.

Literally would not have been able to handle this semester without my fellow nursling girls. The one thing better than passing this semester is knowing that we that all passed and we're one semester away from graduation. Hooray! I'm so ready for this program to be over! For anyone taking the RN program, props to you bro. I don't think I'd be able to do it. A year and a half in and I already feel worn out. I can't imagine four years of this.

On a happier note, I'm so excited for graduation! I've already got a pinterest board going and my aunt and mom (both nurses) are expert party planners and have promised me an awesome nursing grad party. So stoked!

Will be updating with new patterns in the new year so look out for those.

Classes have been crazy. Literally between the start of the semester and now, my program group has dropped from 108 students to approximately 95 students. That's an almost 10% decrease in my potential graduating class. And we still haven't gotten to the hardest semester yet! (Apparently, semester 3 is the worst).

On a happier note, I passed all of my midterms! I did really well on both of my practical midterms, Vital Signs and Medical Administration (inc. Inhaler), so I'm feeling pretty happy right now.

All this craziness is why I haven't been updating lately. I had all these ideas for crochet projects and I'm expected to make presents for several baby showers and I have classmates requesting things and it's all just been a little too much. Right before Christmas last year I got really into making patterns for dinosaurs. I made two Plesiosaur prototypes, a baby T-rex pattern, and I have a Parasaurolophus that's finished, but not yet sewn together.

My Plesiosaur is my favourite; they're my fave dinos ever! And it looks so cute with it's little head and little tail and little itty bitty fins, I just love it!

If anyone's interested in the patterns, I've been contemplating putting them in my pattern shops so let me know if that's something that I should do :)
