Finally, No Tests

At least for a while... I finished the first round of tests and am now "relaxing" on Spring Break. I also have 2 weeks of classes without any tests. It's AMAZING!!

Two weeks ago we had our Pharmacology exam which I thought would be easy because I knew all of the equations that they said we needed to know. However, I guess they were just kidding about those equations because it turned out that we didn't need to know them after all. Needless to say, the test wasn't exactly what I expected. I did alright, but would have liked to do much better...Story of this semester.

Last week, we had Anatomy and Physiology. Yes, we had a Phys exam the Friday before Spring Break. Fun. Since I learned from the first exam that I'm no good at Phys, I spent most of the previous week studying Phys instead of Anatomy. It's nice that I can learn Anatomy as it's taught and don't have to spend too much time studying around exams. (I suppose I could learn other subjects as they are taught, but I haven't figured that out yet.) I'm still waiting for the scores from Phys - not sure why this is taking so long. I know a lot of people were unhappy with one professor's questions so hopefully there will be a curve or something. I need all the help I can get in that class.

Spring Break is halfway over and so far so good. I got into the routine of doing homework in the mornings and hanging out with friends in the evening. I'm hoping to keep myself in school mode while getting ahead in some classes. I started reading Cardiology as that's the next section in Phys, finishing Nutrition modules (, Anatomy, and research articles. I wish I was back in high school or at least undergrad when I had so much more time.

So much to read, so little time.
