Starting "uni"


I started my Overseas Nursing Program at Bournmouth University today. The building is there in the background. Story behind this picture... I stopped into a little market before class started to get some breakfast. I got this yogurt of the shelf, but once I opened it I thought it tasted a bit plain. Turns out it was cream! I had a good laugh over that. One huge perk of being in school again...student discount card!!!
The main benefit of class today was meeting other nurses with nothing else to do for a while. We wandered down by the beach for a while, a beautiful but windy day. Just happy to have sunshine.
Here they are. Hannah from Australia and Renee from Canada. We are in the gardens in the center of town here.
Here is the view from my little attic window, how charming. I came back here this evening and did some of my homework for the class. At about 9pm (1pm California time) I got really tired and assumed that since I haven't slept well for about 4 days that I would sleep through the night. Nope, turned out to be just an afternoon nap. I woke up about 11pm ready to go. I chatted with Charlie and Loren (my salvation!) and now just trying to talk myself into sleep...

I didn't realize you were there to go to school-- I thought it was a travel assignmnent! So are you working on your NP? What made you choose this school? How long will you be there? It sounds like you've had a great start. My husband Bob served his mission in London and has a lot of interesting food stories too :)
