Winter finals start tomorrow, but I needed a little study break (as my previous post indicates, studying really wears my nerves down), so I thought I'd do a little check-in. I'm getting really frustrated with GI drugs - and all the other drugs, and the pathophys, and the pathology and jiminy Christmas is it Friday yet?
(Want to test yourself? Here's my online flashcards: GI Drugs via Quizlet.)
As you may or may not recall, I have some goals I'm working on this month: Original goals. and Week 1 Update.
1. Family: Talking to them every week.
I talked to everyone!! yay! Even Shannon (the next sister after me). She's at the Air Force Academy and almost impossible to get a hold of. We played phone tag for like 3 days. Cheers for persistence.
a. Keeping up with runs: I had to give my twisted foot a little break this past week, so I skipped my Wednesday 3-miler and my Friday 4-miler. But this week I'm 2/2 (11 on Saturday and 7 this morning).
b. Trim up a bit: I'm happy to say I'm feeling really well and I've lost a couple pounds in the past 2 weeks.
3. School: pass midterms (actually winter finals)
Ha. We'll know Friday or possibly Monday, depending on when they get scores up. Not to worry, there will be plenty of angsting about it in the next few days while I take the tests.
a. Practice questions:
I have 500 questions (down from 700 last week) left in the Qbank. It's depressing though; I score really poorly on these.
b. Doctors in Training: Stay caught up
Well, I was caught up as of Sunday. I'm actually planning to do the Mon-Tues-Wed set all tomorrow after tests. I don't consider myself behind until I have more than one set in my inbox, so I'm going to count this as successful.
And now a little lunch highlight, because the most exciting thing that happened to me today was getting kicked out of the lab where I study (freshmen had tests starting this afternoon). I had to find a new spot, so I headed to Stell, a local coffee shop, and I've been here approximately 6 hours. I'm about to head back to school, now that it's afternoon and they're done testing, but while here I had a lovely lunch:
Hummus Sandwich with Avocado on Wheat and Spring Mix Salad
And now back to work. Pharmacology I WILL figure you out.
