The One with the Break Down...

First of all, I just wanted to say I'm so glad that some of you out there know where the titles for my posts come from! (For those of you who don't know, the titles of "Friends" episodes all start out the same way!!) It makes me happy to know that you guys understand what I'm talking about haha ;) And that you share my love of Friends because it really is just a great show!

Now what follows next you better not laugh at. It is going to seem very trivial to some of you, but just realize this is where I am at right now haha:) I realize it's stupid, but I just can't help it. I know I told you in the last post that I have 1. been really stressed and 2. just finished with my first 2 tests in nursing school. Today we had a day off and do you know what I did? More nursing work. So I was already really bummed about spending my day off doing work and I know it was my choice and all was just one of those days!

One of my test grades posted tonight. (As of the post, the other hadn't been put up yet.) I made a 90.5. Before I go any further, let me explain the grading system at my school, some of you may know what I'm talking about. A 93-100 is an A; a 91-92 is an A-; an 88-90 is a B+ and so on and so forth. It's a terrible scale and I really prefer the 10 point scale haha! Oh, and they don't round up:)

SO. I made a 90.5 on my test. Y'all, I cried. I bawled my eyes out. I have been so stressed with trying to get all my chapters read and studying whenever I had the time, mainly I was just working my butt off. See?? I know this is the most trivial thing ever. I should be happy with a B+...I mean on any other scale it would be an A. But I hate b's. I'm not against them like I am C's, but I mean I just really don't like B's. Especially those that are soooo close to an A, can't be rounded up to an A, and after I put in so much effort. I'm just really irritated at myself for getting a 90 and plainly stated...I just feel stupid.

Plus I think all the stress just came to a head when I got that grade and well, the waterworks came. (I'm not really sure the pathophysiology of how tears are created just yet, but I'll work on it and let you know what I find out haha!!)

Anyway, I have one more test grade to wait on and I am just praying that I at least got an A- on that one. I need some good news right about now. So keep your fingers crossed for me!

On another note, I'm going tomorrow (after I take my health assessment quiz...) to Clemson for the BC game. Yes, I'll be bringing my books and all to study from, but I'm hoping for a little relaxation time to just get away and have some form of a life for a bit haha! :) I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful weekend and I can't wait to read about everything you do!

I would have cried too! Don't feel bad! That is so frustrating when the scale screws your grade up!

Have fun this weekend, you deserve it!
