Polka Dot Ponies

This will most likely be just a collection of my ramblings. I ride and train horses, so there is bound to be a lot of horse stuff. But I also just like to vent and this seems the perfect place.

Not really about horses but...

I am going to actively start really trying to get ready to take my NCLEX (nursing license exam). I had really put it on the back burner because (if I am totally honest here) I am afraid of failing the exam. There I said it. I am afraid to fail the NCLEX. Kind of feels good to get that out. It strikes me as odd to be afraid of failing at something because I try and fail all the time with the horses and to me that is a huge part of the learning process. But somehow it seems that if I fail the NCLEX I would be not only letting myself down but a lot of other people.

It has taken being extremely frustrated with where I am at now to finally get me to this place but I am there. I am really feeling that I am at a dead end and I am really starting to get frustrated that I can't seem to save up a decent chunk of money due to earning next to nothing. I am really excited for lessons and training to start up again because that is really where my income comes from. I am just frustrated to be working 5 days a week earning what I could be earning as a nurse in 2 days. I would have SO much more time with the horses and I truly believe I would feel better about myself.

Oh, phoo...I thought you had taken that darn exam already. Come on, you can do it!

Bit of a thought here. Had a friend who once offered some advice to a guy in her office who'd injured his arm about icing it, wrapping it, etc. Later that day, he went to the doctor and when he came back to work he saw my friend. "I don't know why I wasted my time going to the doctor," he said. "He just told me to do exactly the same things you told me to do. How the heck did you know what kind of treatment I needed."

My friend just grinned. "Oh, it was easy. I just told you what I'd do if you were my horse."

So, go to the exam and pretend all your patients are horses. Answer the questions accordingly, and you will pass with flying colors. *VBWG*

OK, anything else I can say to encourage you????????? *S*
