Week’s Itinerary= Radiology Exam 1
Because Monday classes were cancelled due to Labor Day, this week flew by. The only agonizing task to defeat was our 1st Radiology Exam on Wednesday. As you’ll soon discover, this was a very stressful experience.
When we came in early that morning to take the test, one of the radiology professors told us that he took the test on a lark and got a D on it . . . WHAT!? That was the most discouraging thing to hear right before an exam. He said that what messed him up was “over-reading” the questions, so he was actually trying to help us not psych ourselves out by trying to make the questions more complicated than they are. Knowing this really freaked me out because I over-analyze everything.
Like other quizzes after radiology lab, this one was given online. But this time there were 40 multiple- choice questions Instead of 10. Answering the questions also called on knowledge beyond the straight-forward interpretation of x-rays. Despite all my worries, I managed to get a B+ on the exam. I did not complain after seeing that grade. I just wanted to get out of there.
Over the weekend, I went to my karate dojo back in Marietta, my hometown. We did a 3-hour seminar on special techniques within four empty-hand kata (choreographed patterns of movements). It was a great escape from school. If you want to stay sane and healthy during professional school, I highly recommend maintaining hobbies that bring joy to your heart .

Next week is going to be crazy, so I can’t wait to let you know how it goes.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
