Another box of books arrived, seven more books weighing in at a whopping total poundage of 16.1 pounds, not including the 3 inch thick “Interpreting Diagnostic Tests” from last term, which I know I will have to use again this go round. Holy crap. Of course, I am dying to dive in and get a taste of the goodies inside of Principles of Primary Wound Care, and Professional Guide to Signs and Symptoms, and Advanced Health Assessment and Clinical Diagnosis. Integrative Health sounds cool. Pharmacotherapeutics, well not so much. I’ll wait to dive into that deep little pool.
The dilemma is, I just went to the library and got a stack of FUN books. I wanted to spend the break with my mind on vacation. But, there they sit. The School Books. They are whispering in my ear. “Just take a little peek, that’s all, just a peek. You can always go back to that silly little novel (sneer, sneer)”. It’s like a drug, I know that once I peek, I’ll be hooked, and wham, there goes my brain vacation.
The peek or not to peek, that is the question…
Can I hold out long enough to give my brain a rest? Ooh, look, Signs and Symptoms has pictures! O crap, I’m done. The novel might as well go back to the library, how can it compete with pictures?
