One foot in front of the other

Our anatomy final approaches ever faster and morale is up, then down, then up, then down again. We’re doing our best to stay positive, to not allow ourselves to be burdened by the 400 or so topics. There is so much to cover and so little time to do it, that we have been forced to accept that we will not be able to cover everything before our exam next week.

Skjalg had his anatomy yesterday and passed! Now he has physio in his sights, which he will take the day before Jannie and I have anatomy. Jannie and I have been cramming in 12 hours of studying on most days. Today and yesterday, we attended the anatomy consultations for the entire 6 hours they were open. Yesterday was spent covering the limbs together with Christian and Charlotte and today was internal organs with Christian. Tomorrow we will go to the histology consultation and practice identifying the 100 slides we have to know by heart and Friday we will attend another 6 hour anatomy consultation to cover the head and neck – including neuroanatomy!

Day 6 of studying…and at 75 hours and counting of study time. Crazy to think this amount of time may still not be enough. This isn’t for the light-hearted! 😉


Skjalg just left for a birthday dinner for some boys in our grade. Jannie and I were feeling a little jealous, so we decided to break out the party decorations and study in style. Make the best of every situation right?


Jannie made sure to look really excited for the picture


In honor of Maya Angelou’s passing, here are some quotes for when the going gets tough. Oh how I would love to curl up on the couch with one of her books right now.
