What to do with all this time?

It seems that I missed my May 2018 post. Whoops. My apologies. So much for my 2018 resolution.

As you know, I was at the tail end of my Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, and two weeks ago I took my exit exam. Two years of prep work went into that 180-question exam and my world revolved around trying to keep my anxiety in check and getting through that exam alive.


I am Kristina Crisostomo, BSN. Of course, I still have my NCLEX to take – which I hope to do within the next two months. But I have to say the hardest part of this chapter of my life is behind me.

In all honesty, and at the risk of sounding redundant, I could not have done it without the support and love from my family, friends, instructors, and COFFEE. I’ve been tested like I never have before, and the sense of accomplishment I feel as a result is ten-fold.

The day after my exam (after a whole day of partying it up with my now colleagues), I felt absolutely lost. I woke up with the only purpose of going hiking. I had no assignments to do, modules to run, practice tests to complete, or chapters to read. I was no longer a student and I did not know what to do with all this time.

Thankfully, it was my friend’s 30th birthday that next day so I got to see some of the faces I was quickly having withdrawals from. It was comforting to know that we all had the same sentiments waking up that morning. We had lunch, walked a bit of the 3rd Street Promenade, and spent the rest of the day at the beach.

Be ready for some post bombing over the next couple of weeks while I try and catch you guys up with my life.

Till next time.
