Procrastination – why do something today when it can be done later?
Because I’m still a novice nurse, my boss wants me to take some more certification courses (which she is paying for). However, I can’t make myself study anymore because so far the material is a review of everything I’ve learned in both my nursing and biology degree, not to mention high school. For example – pH is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. Riiiiigggghhhhttt. Tell me more about this pH while you take several hundred dollars and waste several precious hours of my time. These lessons are so basic that my sister who vehemently eschews science classes understands this stuff. Not surprisingly, I have spent most of the day repeatedly stepping out for a walk and coming back with coffee and groceries. That’s not to say that I’m some sort of genius (I know enough to know that I hardly know anything) but this is really too much. For now, its back to therapeutic relationships. Must be nice, must be nice... :(
