Staying home until end of the month...again

We were informed that there will be no duty on Thursday and Friday because it will be the mid-term examination of the levels 2,3, and 4 nursing students. It is a policy of the school that examinations should be given in the days where the duty days are spared. Our dean told us that, but now, it was our dean who scheduled the examination. The levels 2 and 3 students should have their midterms on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and not on Thursday and Friday. It seems the dean is breaking his own rules, don't you think so? If that is the case, I will be staying home until the end of the month.

@LadyDuck that is so true. i was able to stay in bubblews but i was not paid the $15+ and the other pending payments when it went off, and now with the minimum of $5, i hope i can reach that amount in a month, because i can save for my medications when i am not on duty this summer break

You will get an ample time for relaxation. You can do whatever you like with those days that you are vacant. I will not have my class on Saturday so I feel happy. I can finally have time to read a book and write something for my blog.

@ridingbet I need 3 bags of blood for my transfusion. The sad thing is, I skipped my session today because of that.
