841da0895e50870737999bc4d0dd402dThis week has been long and yet seems like it flew by at the same time. Since I missed class on Thursday, I had to make up tests on Monday, and didn’t get the assignments for this week until Monday as well… that all put me behind on all of my work this week. We had a total of 8 tests today, yeah EIGHT! I was definitely not ready. Managed to ace 5 of them (Medical Terminology, MT spelling, RMA Review x2, Medical Assistants A&P) ; for the 6th (Phlebotomy) I missed 2 – which came out to be around 91% – a B according to this grade scale, but there are some open-ended questions that get manually graded so not sure what my final grade will be on that test; then for the last 2 tests (Pharmacology), they are take home test with open book – you’d think those will be a piece of cake, but it’s always open book for this subject  and it’s always hard, this week is no different and there’s 2 to worry about. However, trying to look on the bright side and get back to being aligned with the Universe, I’m taking time right now to find my Gratitude. What’s that mean? I’m going to spend the next 10 minutes typing out as many things as possible that I’m grateful/thankful for.  Since Thanksgiving is just a week away, this is probably as good a time as any to start!gratitude

    • I hope you do! I used to do this on a regular basis, and it’s amazing how thinking on the positive can actually attract more positives, like a domino effect. Planning on picking this habit back up! 🙂
