I have been slacking big time! I don’t like myself this way but I can’t do anything to fight it, I am only pregnant, you know! LOL.
Anyway, continuing my daily challenge to post a picture a day for the whole year for the 366 Blog Photo Challenge, my #15 entry are my textbooks on the very first semester I started Pre-Nursing school at the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point. These are the things that caused my nose to bleed for four months:
I was enrolled in Health Science 305 (Study of Human Diseases), Chemistry 105 (Conceptual Chemistry), and Biology 285 (Human Physiology). Among the three, it was the Human Physiology that I found to be the most fascinating yet the hardest. It was the course that made me cry, for the first time ever, in my student life, because of facing the hardest exam that I’ve ever taken. In my student life back home in Philippines, it was so easy to get a perfect score or a test result with 10 mistakes the most. But on this course, honestly, in my first exam, I was only 8 points above the passing rate. I cried so hard the moment I got out from the test and the husband was laughing at me. He was like, “I wonder if my students who failed in my exams (he teaches gruesome Mathematics courses, lol) also cried like you.” He comforted me by saying he felt bad, too, on the very first semester he started his graduate school here in the US. Part of the hardship was culture shock including language barrier between us and the professors, and also, because it’s been a while since the last time I went to school. And what do you know? My mentor husband was sure right. Learning these courses made me realized that I can be a doctor. However, it will take me 20 years pa to do so! LOL.The Human Physiology supplemental manuals: Lecture and lab materials
Right now, I am on a halt in my dream and goal to finish Nursing. When parenthood and economic situation settle for me, I shall continue to pursue this dream. The husband would always remind me that I still have a lot of years ahead and as long as he’s around, he will be with me on this journey of mine. I know, I am so blessed. 🙂
