I got a C.

I'm done with anesthesia school because I got a C. Doesn't sound so bad, but it is. I feel crappy and stupid. One big crappy stupid lump. Decisions need to be made. Resume updated. Loans to pay back. Ick.

Thanks for the support. There will be less anesthesia talk, more scrapbook and non-study talk. On to plan B. Well, I never intended on a plan B. Plan B starts now. Changes will be made along the way.

Ok, I've said it. Do I feel better? No. Still feel crappy and stupid. Will I survive? Definately. There are plans for me. I'll find that out later.

Are you going to keep reading? Probably not. But the wit, sarcasm, and other fun will continue. Just no complaining about anesthesia school.

Will I return to school? I don't know. I could return to the same program this August. I don't think I'll do that. I have credits earned, but not sure what I'd go for. Luckily, there are always jobs in nursing. And I've always had the philosophy that no education is a waste. Heck, I started college as an art student. Graphic design, switched to art education. Realized I was more craftsy than artsy.

my heart goes out to you my dear. As I said in my last repsonse, I feel like I have endured my semester of torture right along beside you and I am saddened that you will not be continuing this endevour.
My favorite-est quote is from Eleanor Roosevelt: no one can make you feel inferior without your consent"
You dared to try what few try and that is never a failure. You will find your 'plan B' in time.
I will miss sharing this experience with you, but please do not stop: you have a knack for humor and I love your wit and sarcasm.
Hang in there.

I'm so sorry Jennie. I feel so horrible. I want to cry. Maybe you can apply to ASU's program. I'm shooting for the 2009 class. I know that you'll succeed in whatever you do. I'm praying for ya.

I am sorry for you that this has happened. We lost several students this semester as well. I do not know you, but I can tell from your postings that you are a very intelligent young lady. I hope that you recover from the experience and decide to get "right back on the horse that just bucked you off"! Good luck to you and God bless you and your family.

I have enjoyed reading your blog and actually have it saved to my favorites list, so I can go and see what you are up to.

I will keep an eye on your blog and see what you decide to do with your future.

Good luck and rest for a week or so before you make any drastic decions.

I often wondered if the extra time spent blogging and surfing the net would have an impact....

not fair at all. Regardless of what you 'often wondered' this is not your forum to say. Crap happens and she needs support not your two cents from the observational peanut gallery.
