Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Week

When I was little and in school there used to be this book called "Harry and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day." I kinda feel like Harry in that book this week. Monday started off good. I went to school and learned and it was great! That night we even set the trap to trap the skunk that was living under the trailer and caught it! And then it roasted in the sun on Tuesday so we didn't even have to drown it! (little blessings. it was a blessing indeed!) Tuesday was the worst day in the history of the world! I passed/failed one of my skills tests. (Its hard to explain because I passed everything except I did one technique wrong so I failed, and had to remediate, which is just awful and embarrasing!) And Tuesday, Chris and I also got in a teeny fight because I told him he smelled like a skunk when he wanted to give me a hug. I felt really bad and told him I was just stressed out from my test and I didn't think I was going to be a good nurse and cried and had my meltdown and was fine! Wendesday I had a test, so on Tuesday night I was studying, and halfway through studying (like almost 2 hours into studying) I realized I was studying the wrong chapter. So on the good side, I guess I'm halfway ready for my test for next week! I went in on Wednesday and took my test and I actually think that I passed it. There may have been 2 questions that I missed, but I got one of the bonus questions right, so I may have only missed 1 question. Then I sat in school from 8 to 4 and was tired and exhausted and then came home to study for the test I had to go and retake. Thursday (today) wasn't quite as bad. I went to school at 7 and woke up with a super huge headache. We learned today how to put in NG tubes (nasogastric tube, where the tube goes into the nose and down into the stomach and nurses are able to feed patients that way.) There were a ton of students that actually volunteered in my class (don't worry, I was NOT one of them. I figured with as bad as my week had been, I would probably get the tube in my lung or something like that) and that was pretty fun! I wish I would have been more brave though and volunteered to put one in somebody, however, I was a chicken and just practiced on the easy manequin. (I don't know how to spell that!) I'm thinking that this week has been so awful because I'm going through the temple tomorrow and its going to be a great experience and I think there has just been a lot of adversity for me. I have never had such a hard week of school ever in my life. I hope that after tomorrow I will be able to get through the rest of school with hardly any problems. Now I need to figure out how to upload pictures up here!
