Thank goodness for Easter weekend! These last three weeks have been a grind … running on not enough sleep and more coffee than I thought I would ever have drank. This little break was exactly what I needed to help recuperate and prepare for the upcoming weeks.
Sometimes it just feels like you hit a wall, and you don’t think you can possibly stay focused or learn another thing, and right now that’s where I’m at. I cannot wait to take at least one night off and just not look at any books and turn the TV on and catch some playoff hockey! We do have an exam next week, but it’s only one and a whole six days away, so I don’t need to be cramming at all hours of the day and night.
The good thing about Palmer during these heavy exam weeks is that the professors communicate with each other, and many of them were once in our spots and know exactly how we feel. They know when to ease off the gas pedal in one class so we can put more focus on others by giving clinical lectures or going at a slower pace. It’s nice to feel like they are here to help us, reinforcing and encouraging us through a stressful time.
But I am glad last week is over. I am totally drained and cannot wait to get home to my couch.
