End of Semester 2

Let me ‘splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

 

There were weeks of lecture, lab, and tests.  Then study week where we had a whole week to start studying.  Then exams started.  Well I survived.  It was a close call though.  The last three weeks have been full on study with a terrible diet and sleep deprivation.  I started drinking coffee again, which I haven’t done in years.  But I have survived, and hopefully I won’t have to sit a supplementary exam in January.

My first exam was in Anatomy.  I studied pretty hard out with my flatmates and managed to scrape together enough understanding to be confident of a passing grade.  That was on the first Wednesday of exams, the following Friday was Animal Nutrition.  That exam went pretty well all things considered, again I think I secured a pass.  Then there was the weekend and that Monday was Animal Industries.  I am not going to lie, I put off studying for this one quite a lot and only really looked into it the morning of the exam (which was in the afternoon).  I do think that I passed, but some of the questions definitely caught me off guard.  The lecturers are known for being pretty lenient with point allocation, so I should be okay on that.  Tuesday of this week (yes, the very next day) was a morning Genetics exam.  Which meant that I spent all of Monday night cramming information into my brain.  I had spent the weekend studying, but Monday night was a last ditch effort to do equations.  It didn’t really pay off because I still screwed up the equations on the exam, but hopefully I will get partial credit and still pull off a pass.  I know that I did well on the non-math related questions, so a pass is not out of the question.  Hopefully they are generous with the points.  Finally, today (Thursday) was the Physiology exam.  I studied Tuesday night, all day Wednesday, and this morning.  I went in feeling like I was going to fail.  Thankfully I got lucky and was able to at least answer each of the questions.  Hopefully it is enough to pass.  That is the one that I am most likely going to have to sit a sup for, but hopefully not.

 

Tonight is one of my classmate’s 21st birthday.  There is a party at her house.  I am going to sober drive so my flatmates can drink.  I don’t drink because my arthritis medication is already damaging my liver, and I’m not a fan of the lag that alcohol creates in my brain.  Usually I’m not a fan of drunk people either, but it should at least be entertaining to watch my classmates act ridiculous.

 

Next week I start working at a race horse training stable for the three week break.  It should be quite fun.  Hopefully I remember to post here more often.

 

Tata for now!
