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!
