It's Monday! Life, School and the Pursuit of Reading

Last week I didn't get an "It's Monday" posted an I'm sorry. I really hadn't done much reading and I still haven't this week but this week I'm not quite as crazy busy as I was last week. Not quite. I actually only got one blog post done last week, which was my link up for Top Ten Tuesday's which was about my Top ten favorite secondary characters in Austen. That was a really fun topic and you can check it out here. :)
Nothing much has changed in my reading world. I'm still listening to the audiobook of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South and reading Mary Westcott's (Agatha Christie's pseudonym in her younger years) book Giant's Bread. 
School? Every semester of nursing school we have a 25 question pharmacology test over a million and one drugs (that might be an exaggeration) that haunts us all semester and we inevitably put off studying for until the last minute. Last week I had that test and it actually went quite well thankfully. :) I now have one test and then the final left and then I'll be free!!!! :)
Life? I've been making some beautiful crochet projects recently to raise money for my mission trip to Costa Rica. Here are some pictures of my creations. :) It's been fun making them in my very limited free time. :)








So that's my life right now. How's yours?

  2. So cool that we're both reading the same novel North and South in different formats.

    Gosh, that test about the medications sounds intense! I was actually considering going nursing for a while but changed my mind. Kudos to you for working so hard and doing mission work.

    The purple crochet hats look like something I'd wear if I lived in colder weather (San Diegan here :P). I also like the baby shoes and hair clips. Good luck with the fundraising!

  4. Congrats on your test! One of my friends is a nurse and she's always terrified of all of her exams! I don't think I'd have the patience for crocheting, but I love the blue and white coasters you made!
    Thanks for sharing :) I hope you enjoy all of your books!

    1. Nursing is a unique program that one doesn't quite understand how hard it is until they've gotten into it. All programs are hard in their own way though.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. My life is much calmer and quieter than yours. I keep watching my colleague do her crocheting and am envious. She is into making animals and other toys right now. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  6. Nice Top Ten post on Austen, I haven't read much of her work but great supporting characters are always nice and posts like that always make me curious about the stories they come from. :) Have a great week ahead!

  9. Those hats are ADORABLE! I love them.
    Costa Rica is a fantastically beautiful country. I was there last summer - it was a scholarship prize, not a mission trip, but we did do some volunteer work with an orphanage, which was great. Have fun!
