I have come down with some variation on an upper respiratory infection involving my sinuses and my ears.  Oh joy.  Fever and lightheadedness notwithstanding, I am currently at school, as I have multiple tests today and lab practice scheduled.

I feel partly drunk, partly like I am close to fainting, and incredibly stupid...I can't seem to access anything more brain-complicated than how to take vitals, so I daresay that test results for this week are going to be rather disappointing.  Oh well, it's not like I can help being punch-drunk with The Sick, so I just need to go slower on tests (I am routinely the first one done with tests, to the point where 2 of my instructors suspected me of cheating and so had me placed directly in front of them during test-taking, which became rather funny once they realized that not only was I NOT cheating, I was just that fast.  Cue confusion on their parts.  Heh.).

But I have my ATI stuff done for the week, have my homework completed early, and have no plans for tomorrow except getting Frank and Odin to the vet office at 8 AM for their dental work.  So I think going home and collapsing is probably pretty high on my list of plans for today.

Scratch that.  I just remembered I need to type up some form of cheat sheet for household conversions for my class.  You would be absolutely astounded how many people in my class cannot remember how to convert milliliters to liters, grams to milligrams, ounces to pints, etc.  Cue snarky comment about the state of this country's educational system...this is stuff I learned before middle school!  I hate to say it, but I can already tell who will probably wash out of the program and who will stick around -- in general, the ones who are asking me for help or are scheduling tutoring sessions are the ones who will stick.  Already, there are some who are making comments about "I'm never going to get this" or "Maybe I should change my degree program."  They have already given up, in those cases.

I refuse to give up, though.  This is my last chance, my last ticket out of this rut that Boe and I are in.  I am going to do this one way or the other and that is that.
