Week’s Itinerary= Virology Test 2
Okay, so I prepared for Virology to the best of my abilities and Monday’s exam arrived . . . a Horrible experience!!! Dr. Greene’s portion was brutal! I don’t have any tips to advise you for preparation. I thought how I prepared by quizzing with a friend was enough, but the professor was very difficult with his questions. Even people who usually get As in everything thought this exam was mind boggling.
Guys, I finally got my Anatomy exam 2 grade! You all ready for what I got? . . . it was my first sensational A ever in Anatomy!!!
I was in shock & 3 classmates gave me a hug congratulating me. It’s a big deal to get As in that class. It feels like an incredible victory. We have a mini quiz in lab next week where they will be testing us on pig anatomy. Hope it won’t be too stressful. We also had horse palpation quiz. It was not too bad at all. Just relax. Dr. Gogal tries to make you feel comfortable.
For Ethics, we have yet to get our final grade back. It has been well over 2 weeks. You have to be very patient with getting grades back for this class.
I had the wonderful opportunity of going on a CDC trip! I thoroughly enjoyed myself! The main reason why I went was to see where the scenes of the movie “Contagion” and the show “The Walking Dead” took place 🙂 I know, it was a silly reason, but I thought it was cool when one of the CDC administers guiding us was just as enthused with my interest in the show as I was. We saw a model of the CDC campus and he showed the actual building where “The Walking Dead” was used in the show even though they did not actually shoot it there. The tour was funny because we could not go into about 70% of the rooms because they were off limits and potentially detrimental to our lives due to the high levels of infectious diseases that they are testing. I did get to see 2 adorable monkeys in their cages though. After the tour, I was trying to be as polite and formal by thanking the administrator who worked at CDC well over 10 years by shaking his hand, but it was the most awkward and embarrassing handshake I have given a person in my entire life 🙂 Thankfully, he was very sweet though. The trip itself heading to and from CDC was memorable! I had great random conversations and hilarious moments with the crew that went with me on the trip.
