Let's start with the bad news...

I have an epic cold. Ok, it's not that bad but it is seriously messing with my life right now. All I want to do is drink cups of tea and watch Hawaii Five-0 (as if the warm weather on the TV will suddenly make me better) but in reality I have tons of assignments to do, not to mention exams to study for.

AND I failed my Pathology exam :( By 3%... I got 77% instead of 80%. Lame, lame, lame. However, it was an online exam and so the marks come through automatically and don't take into account spelling errors or slight differences in meaning. My teacher has said not to worry too much as he needs to go through all the exams. Am crossing my fingers and toes!

Good news though, and it's GREAT news- it almost cancels out the bad news. The vet who owns the practice has offered me work there when I finish my qualifications at the end of the year!! It should be full time work as it looks like one of the nurses is leaving soon, however even if she doesn't leave, he said he would like me to at least be part time. I'm so excited and happy and lots of other good adjectives. I really love the practice and the people I work with there. They have been so kind to me and I feel like I am growing as a nurse and as a person there. And also as a result of the nurse leaving, they would need me to cover her shifts starting in a month or so- and get PAID for it :) My bank account is running a teensy bit low and any money would be much appreciated. I don't have time to study *and* work, so this would be brilliant, getting paid to learn more about my job.
