I spent the whole morning fixing my laptop. It had so many spyware/adware/malware that I was shocked. I have no idea how all of that junk got into my PC, maybe the guy who fixed it downloaded crap. But I fixed it and it's working fine. I also cleaned up dad's laptop and updated his drivers, so it's working a lot better too.

We had two cats hanging out in our backyard today. It seemed to be a mother cat with her baby kitten. They were laying about in some of dad's PVC pipes, chilling in the shade. I put a bowl of cold water and fed them some tuna. I think they were very happy. Hopefully they'll come by tomorrow again. I'll get some cat food and put it away for them when they decide to visit. I wish I could keep them, but I have too many pets to care for at the moment. Plus, dad would kill me.

I worked out for 40 minutes tonight while watching Ghost Adventures on Hulu Plus. I don't understand why people hate Hulu. I like it. The commercials are very short compared to what you see on television, so there's no need to complain. I like it a lot more than Netflix. It has more stuff on it plus a ton of anime.

I'm quite tired tonight so I'll go to bed early. I really want to finish watching The First 48 but I am falling asleep. I completely forgot what I was going to do now...I have such a horrible short-term memory!

 I received a third letter from my boyfriend today. Apparently, he's doing much worse than before. He keeps getting punished for minor things and was even sent to some motivation program where he was forced to do excessive exercising. I feel pretty bad for him, especially since he is someone who is not used to that type of regime. He's a really shy, quiet and patient person. I'm afraid that by the time he comes back, he will be a different person. Someone scary. Someone angry.
Yesterday was our first day of practice at the hospital. We were assigned a partner and then given a patient whom we had to interview to complete an admission history (basically collecting patient data). We had to do vital stats, a physical examination and ask questions. The professor then dragged me to another patient so I could take out blood for some labs. I was pretty nervous since the last time I took out blood was about 4 years ago. Thankfully, everything went smoothly and the patient had great veins despite being an elderly man. Professor said I did an excellent job. I'm actually happy and cannot wait for next week.
Right now I'm doing some homework which is due for next Friday. It's just writing about the patient's condition (which was acute coronary syndrome). We have to summarize the etiology, signs and symptoms, medical treatment and nursing interventions. Then we have to complete the admission history, a nursing care plan and focus charting (nursing notes). Everything except the nursing notes is easy for me. I still need practice on notes.
Oh, last night our neighbor gave us a chicken! We got a fat hen with 9 baby chicks. Unfortunately, when we let them out today in the yard, my dog ate one of the chicks. I was so upset and disgusted. I know it's animal instinct but oh goodness...the poor babe. He ate the whole damn bird! This dog is something, he acts as if he had never eaten. So I'm still upset by that. The neighbor stopped by and helped us tie the hen in our fenced off garden so she doesn't run off and leave the chicks behind. He also helped us build a cage for them. So yeah, they're sleeping in there tonight. 
I was supposed to do some cleaning around the house, but I had to do my college work. Still working on it. I guess cleaning will have to wait until tomorrow. I have quite a headache, so the rest of this work will probably be finished tomorrow as well.
