CAUTION: Tests may be closer than they appear. AHHH! The first round of exams are upon us in second trimester. We ended this week with a Biochem 2 exam. I’m drawing structures in my mind and thinking, “Stimulate, inhibit, location … oh, shoot, what else?” Woof. Hopefully I’ll get good results from that exam soon!
Next on the agenda is Spinal. Hundreds of “quizzie” questions are waiting for me to memorize screaming, “Memorize me, breathe me, and live me!” So. Many. Questions. Then I have one day in between to recuperate, and then it’s General Pathology 1. Only 60 pages of reading for that. 🙂
It’s super important to get ahead on exams right away to coast through the trimester. It’s a lot harder to dig yourself out of a hole the entire trimester, instead of having a little leeway.
After that first half of exams, we have Homecoming! There are lots of cool speakers and presentations, free food and fun rugby events. If I survive the first round of exams, I’ll let you know how Homecoming goes. 🙂 Hehe
After Homecoming is the next half of the first round of exams. Monday is Gross Anatomy 2, Tuesday is Physiology 2 and Wednesday is Spinal Lab Practical. Honestly, I can’t even think about this round yet. It’s too far away, and I have too much information to cram into my head before that.
Thankfully this week is also a little break from rugby! We only have one day of conditioning this week, but have rugby events almost every day. I’m just happy I don’t have to run outside. 🙂 Considering I am feeling a little rushed with this round of exams, I am not eating the greatest or sleeping the most. So this rugby conditioning break is the perfect way for my body to catch a break.
I’m off to consume copious amounts of coffee and study! Ahh, the things I do for my future patients. 😉 Wish me luck and send me motivational/sympathy vibes. 🙂
