Shoutout to all these new followers that popped up in the last couple of days! Hey y’all! Welcome to my whatever-this-blog-is.
Friday was an unofficial end to our “hell week” at my med school. Serious shout out to md-admissions and topoisomerases and cranquis for being amazing humans. The official end of the wild ride that was this week will be Monday after our midterm which covers everything we have learned so far in our main class (genetics, biochem, physiology, etc. etc.).
Last night after clinical skills, I went to dinner with my advising group. Second years gave us good advice for the midterm/life advice in general. I’m glad I went because I needed a break from studying. Not that many people in our group showed up though but it was still really fun.
Today, I stayed at the library for 9 hours today and actually accomplished things!!! I am such a morning/afternoon studier.
One of my friends and I studied in a study room silently (WHICH WAS AWESOME AND IT HAD A WINDOW) and then later in the afternoon we taught each other things the other one isn’t strong in. Yay built in white boards!
Got to teach her carbohydrate metabolism and regulation and she taught me all about action potentials/neurotransmitters/etc. No surprise that I was a biochem major and she was a neuro major.
Came home and now I am going to try to tackle a few more lectures before tomorrow (especially the confusing ones we didn’t get to today, like about ADH/aldosterone). Planning to meet up tomorrow to go over the rest of the material.
Also this week we found out how we did on our anatomy exam that was on Monday and I did pretty well! Hopefully Monday’s midterm goes well (but it’s okay if it doesn’t! I know grades aren’t the be-all-end-all but I really feel like I”m understanding the majority of the material now). Best of luck with whatever you are doing (having fun or studying!) and hope everybody is having a wonderful weekend! Back to studying for me!
