I am playing netball for the first time in 15 years, I was sick for the first game and we lost 44 / 5 (yeah I know pretty terrible) . I played my first game yesterday and we won 25/ 12. So it was a great day :)

We have been training heaps and it is really paying off, I am really enjoying it. I am just having trouble with the family/ study/ netball/ and everything else etc balance. So I am trying to get that sorted this week, because unfortunately study has been put aside with all the craziness of netball and I am feeling a tiny bit (OK bit more then that) stressed at what I still have to get done for school.

Anyway night. Yay Greys is on tonight

Hello :)

My computer has been getting fixed, and I have not had a chance to come on here from tech.

Tech is pretty hectic at moment, well actually I am on two week holiday, but I have lots of assignments to write in three weeks before I start placement.

It is hard to believe but I have basically finished Year 2, teaching wise, just have assignments, exams and placement, but all of the lectures have finished. Feels like it was only just Christmas.

Anyway small post, little children are calling.

Oh I got a good mark back for my first essay, 90.5 %, which is an A+, Yay!!

Flu vaccinations

I got mine this week and decided to get the kids done as well. We have never had one before, but last year they caught Influenza B and were sick for a week, not like ever before, they didn't move from bed. So I decided to have them vaccinated this year. Apparently they are saying that it is going to be a pretty bad year this year for the flu and heaps of people are going to get it. I am on clinical, when flu season starts and I know so many students that have missed a few days to a week because of being sick, that I do not want to risk it this year. The vaccine only covers three strains of the virus, that they think will come to New Zealand ( I have no idea how they work that out) so you can still catch other bugs and it takes two weeks to build up enough antibodies, to protect you, so you can still get sick until then.

I also completed my third hep B injection last month, so this week I had a blood test to make sure I was immune and I am. So that is good, I did have the vaccination about 10 years ago but for some reason, it had worn off or other reasons etc.

Had something else to say but cant remember.

Have been pinching myself (not literally) that in a few months I will be in year three. Woohoo! The thought of becoming an RN is in my sights and becoming reality.
