Senior Year | My LAST first day of undergrad

Hey guys! So by the time, you will have read this I will have already completed my last "first day of school" of my Senior year! Time really does fly by, doesn't it? I can't believe that I've made it this far successfully. As promised, here's all the 411 on the first day of my Senior year:

Supplies.....

Me personally, I don't require much to get the job done. I spent less than $10 on supplies for school, only because I buy in bulk every once and a while and then reuse as need be. This year, I actually gave a lot of my supplies away to my niece and used what was left over. I ended up purchasing a 100-page notebook for $2.09 (which will be used for Med Surg) and then a $0.99 70-page notebook that would be used for my OB course. Simple right? right! If you check out my older post, "Nursing School Must-Haves" I include a detailed list of all the must-haves for school. I pretty much live by that list semester-to-semester. I reused binders that had once been used for non-nursing courses, I have dividers, notecards of course, a few good pens and highlighters, and of course a planner. Now, in the video, as a disclaimer I stated that just because I get by with very few supplies doesn't mean that will work for you. some people require much more, but me, I like to keep it simple. I'm a visual learner, who learns book-work best by taking handwritten notes. so I didn't need much else besides my two notebooks.

Organization......

The most effective way to stay organized in Nursing school is to purchase and actually utilize a planner! There is no way possible to make it through working, going to school, completing assignments (ON TIME), and still maintaining a personal life without some sort of calendar. I can't tell you how many things I've forgotten about this summer, because my usage of my planner had declined greatly! Plus it's good to use a planner in order to figure out how your week will go from day-to-day. Thanks to X, I now use my notes on my phone as a way to make a To-Do list for each day, so that I can stay on track. Dude... when I say it has changed my life in the last few days, I really mean it! I have been on top of things and checking them off left to right. I mean, especially trying to keep up with a blog every week, it gets tricky. So I recommend buying a good planner (TJ Maxx) and then writing down your daily to-do list.

Hey guys! So by the time, you will have read this I will have already completed my last "first day of school" of my Senior year! Time really does fly by, doesn't it? I can't believe that I've made it this far successfully. Check out my quick video on how the day went, and then stay tuned below for more information!

Let me be the first to say that having mixed emotions about entering into any grade level, for any major, is normal. I have been anticipating this day for so long and now that it's here I think that I have freaked myself out so bad. Everything that we feel about this moment in our lives is normal. My biggest worry is that I have to figure out so many things in the next 9 months. What position will I accept? I need to study for the NCLEX! Do I want to move out of state? Do I want to purchase an apartment here in Wisconsin? There are so many different things that you have on your mind, but I am reminded that we should never worry about tomorrow because tomorrow brings its own worries. So while I am nervous about this upcoming year, I am excited to see where my creator takes me from here and I hope that you can get excited about your journey as well!
