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. 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: whatdowecallmedschool.tumblr.com. 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.
