Sorry for not posting in several weeks. Things have been pretty busy around here as finals get ever closer. As much as I want to write one post a week, it is easier said than done. Med school pretty much takes up your whole life. We have a total of nine different exams and practicals these last three weeks: OTM practical and final, Complete Doctor practical and final, Histology Image Exam, Ultrasound Practical, Anatomy Practical, Block 5 Exam, and a whopping 8-hour-long Final in two weeks! Some students have already started studying for it, which is probably what I should be doing, but the truth is that there is literally no time. In med school you pretty much only have time to worry about the next thing. Today I worried about my OTM practical. Once that was over, I started studying for my Complete Doctor exam tomorrow. And the worst part is, every exam from here on out makes up a HUGE percentage of our grade. My exam tomorrow is worth 30%, and I have studied for it for three hours. Wait, why am I writing this when I should be STUDYING!? Aaaaaahhhhh! Okay, back to studying. Monday I have injection lab, so I will probably update you all on how horribly that goes for me. If you have time, pray for me that I don’t pass out!
