Preparing for Finals

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!
