 I received a letter from my boyfriend today. He's doing worse than I thought. Apparently he passed his midterms but because he forgot to flip a cup in the cafeteria, he is now on probation. I suppose it's because he's had a lot of warnings and punishments. Today they were going to let him know if they're going to revert him (restart the training or send him back). He is also going into some motivational program for 5 days (this would be the third time he's been there). I don't know what to think about this anymore. He is obviously doing horribly. I knew this wasn't for him. I called his mom to tell her about it and she said the same thing. Hopefully he'll pass everything and just come back. I'm also hoping he doesn't turn into an aggressive asshole.
I passed by my eye doctor today. I asked them to give me a sample pair of contact lenses. The Air Optix just isn't doing it for me. I prefer my Acuvue Oaysis lenses which were more comfortable. So I got a pair of those to make sure that the discomfort I feel in my eyes is either the lenses or because of a side effect from the birth control pills. I'm sure it's the lenses though. So I'll buy the Acuvue instead, same price.
I tried to play Rift tonight but it kept kicking me from the game. Not sure why. It was also kind of lagging on me. Sucks. I miss my laptop. Hopefully I will get it fixed soon because this one my boyfriend left me is crappy...Sony, heh.

 Today officially starts my 1 week of Spring Break. Which isn't really a vacation since I have to finish a project for class. It's fine with me, it's not like I do much anyways. I'm not one to go out and hang out with people, or go to parties and get stupid drunk (I don't even drink btw). I'd rather stay home reading, watching movies or shows, playing games...sleeping. Sleeping is always nice.
I talked to my boyfriend's mom today. I was worried since I haven't heard from him in a while. Apparently they were given permission to make calls since they passed their midterms. They were only able to talk for 5 minutes though. I guess he's okay. He asked her to call me and let me know. So this is their 5th week, they complete training in about 3 weeks. I hope he passes. He has gone through a lot with this.
Nothing interesting has really happened. Just bored as usual. Been playing some Rift since I got bored of Guild Wars 2. That's something that bugs me about myself. I tend to get bored easily of stuff. But yeah. Now with this time off, hopefully I can catch up on finishing reading some books and watching some tv shows. Also, goal is to complete this project and just get it over with. I want to do well this last semester, so I am giving it my all.
I really need my laptop. I'm probably going to end up buying a new one or something because it's ridiculous. I have no money coming in, so it's making it even more difficult. I can't wait until I graduate, get my license and get my ass to work. I will have sweet money coming in for myself and to help out dad. I also need to buy my contact lenses...argh. So many things.

 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.

 So I have a bad cold, again. It started last Wednesday, went to my doctor on Friday and she said it was a cold. So she just gave me Zyrtec, antibiotics and a cream for my face (been getting a red spot at times on it, she said she can't say for certain it's rosacea). On Saturday I got worse and had to put up with it on the weekend. I couldn't even get out of bed so I missed our health fair. I'm upset because I don't want to be missing class and I'm trying my best, but I can't do much sick. Especially since we start practice at the hospital soon. 
I called my doctor again and they gave me an appointment for Thursday. That is way too long so dad took me to the hospital. They gave me some kind of syrup, an injection and ran a CBC test. Just a bad cold. Got some meds and sent home, but I cannot go to the practice until I am better. Wouldn't be nice to go take care of patients with a damn cold to begin with.
I feel like hell. I haven't been sick like this, ever. That's twice in a row already. Also, my good friend Marilyn is hospitalized again. I can't go visit her like this because she'll get worse! I text her everyday to make sure everything is okay and to keep up-to-date on her. I hope she'll feel better soon and quickly.
Not much has happened. I did receive a letter from my boyfriend today. For those of you who don't know, he's in the coast guard basic training all the way in Jersey. He's not doing too well and is very stressed out. I knew that would happen since he isn't the type of person to be in that kind of job. I just hope he makes it out in one piece and with no problems. I'm afraid he may end up needing psychological therapy after the basic training...poor guy.
