In 11 hours time I will be comfortably nestled in my exam seat in the lecture hall at school with my biochemistry semi-final before me. I don’t feel prepared – does one ever? – but I have done my best and I’m hoping the hard work will pay off. Embarrassingly enough, Skjalg and I figured out that I haven’t left the apartment since last Friday….which means I’ve had a solid week of waking up, studying, and going back to bed.
Jannie came over today to help me study. She had her biochem exam on Wednesday, so the material was fresh in her head. She went through lectures and tested me throughout the day while I went through questions from Lehninger (our recommended biochem book), then tested me on all 185 structures (of which I only made mistakes on 11!) and made some flashcards for me to review in the morning.
The exam is at 10:30 and the results will probably be ready at 13:00 or 14:00. After that, Skjalg and I are heading to an apartment showing near Deak. We’ve come across an amazing apartment and I’m really hoping that it is “the one”. After that Jannie will join us to visit the flooding Danube. The river is only a 5 or 10 minute walk from where we will be checking out the apartment.
I want to “publicly” wish congratulations to Skjalg! He had his anatomy exam today and got a 4 😀 With a 5 in Medical Communication and a 4 in Medical Biophysics, I’d say he is doing quite well for himself. I’m proud of you bebe 😉 You’re amazing!
