Last Day of Our First Semester

December 14, 2012 § 4 Comments

It’s finally here! And I don’t know whether to welcome it or to pretend that it’s not there. Regardless of how I choose to receive this day, the truth is that it is here. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. I honestly feel as though I have only been in school for a month or so.

Today is my last long “hell” day. We’ll cover some last slides in histology, do some last tests in statistics, have a review session in physics and then our last midterm of the semester during chemistry lab. ย For our midterm in chemistry today, we will pick a piece of paper from a pile containing the names of 18 labs done this semester. We then have 15 minutes to write out a summary of the lab, including any equations or diagrams pertaining to it. Last week’s chemistry exam went horribly, so I am a little nervous about this one. Our teacher has been saying “It’s very easy” in response to any question regarding the midterm, but that has little comfort coming from someone who has dedicated their life to the subject.

Tonight Skjalg and I are planning a long overdue date night. We have done nothing but study together for as long as I can remember – maybe squeezed in a movie or show on the couch here and there. Tomorrow we will be celebrating his birthday (he turned 30 on Tuesday) with a group of 20 or so friends. Exam season starts officially tomorrow, so come Monday, the real fun begins! My first midterm is Hungarian on Tuesday and then I have a whole 8 or 9 days until my Anatomy midterm. Simply writing that sentence make my stomach churn…

Here are links to some gifs from my new favorite site: It is just a bunch of clips with funny, oh-so-true captions. Nothing makes us feel better these days than knowing that we aren’t alone it this.

Struggling with all the testable material for the exam

When you open an exam and realize it isn’t going to end well

Every exam day

Just when I think I’m getting the hand of this med school thing

How the first exam week feels in M1 – yay….

The point in studying where you start looking forward to exam day

When it’s nice outside but I have to study

    Hi Bianca, I hope all is well. I am trying to book a weekend where Aida can come and stay with you. Can you give me a few weekends in January that will be less strenuous for you and I will buy a ticket for her to come see you. If it is in Feb / March, no worries. I just want to book a weekend so that she can spend time with with you and you don’t have to worry about tests, etc and can spend time with her. Please reply to as i don’t want her to catch on to what I am trying to do.

    Thanks Matt

    You have come this far – you will make it. Remember you are more than you think you are. And in our eyes you are already an amazing success. Love.

      Thank you, Grandpa ๐Ÿ™‚ This came at the perfect time. There is apparently a lot of self doubt that sets in around exam time and positivity is hard to come by. Love you.
