So Close!!!!

Well, I managed to earn a semester average of a 3.666 for this past semester, which is not bad considering all that I went through this term.  You know, like, not going to most of my classes for the month of October.  I thought that I would make the Dean’s List, but no – the minimum GPA for that is 3.670.  So, I missed being on the Dean’s list by a measly 0.004 grade points (or whatever they are called).  That’s 4 thousandths, in case you were wondering.  It’s very frustrating!  I have yet to make the Dean’s list in a fall semester – and I don’t really know what it is about the Fall semester that makes it so.

Also this past weekend I had some very real life-or-death moments while driving to work on Saturday.  It took me over an hour to get to work.  I only almost ran off the road and down the embankment once on my way to work.  I just got myself stuck in a little ridge created by the snow plows when they made their first pass on the road.  Luckily, no one was behind me and I was able to back out of where I was stuck and resume my course.  It took a lot of deep breathing and reminding myself to steer and brake gently to get me to work that day.  I almost cried with relief when I pulled into my parking spot at the end of the drive.

I knew I’d never make it home that night so I slept over in one of the beds in our flu treatment area.  We haven’t really had and patients in there with the flu for over a month, so I didn’t have to worry about infection or anything.  Plus a phlebotomist and a pharmacy tech ended up staying over, too.  I had to work an early shift on Sunday morning – all the more reason to stay over.
