Week’s itinerary= LA Digestive Final, Theriogenology Final
I finally made it to finals . . . what a journey! The experience honestly felt as though I had been taking finals since the third week of school the way every week has been so intense. So, here is how the last 2 weeks of what my core classes will look like: this week is 2 finals (LA Digestive and Theriogenology (Animal Reproductive Medicine), and next week is 3 finals (Musculoskeletal, SA Digestive, and Radiology).
Last week, all of my exams and quizzes were completed last Thursday, so I had what I deemed a sufficient amount of time to begin studying for my finals this week since my first final began on Wednesday. As a whole, I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the GI tract in horses, cows, sheep, and goats. It was not as difficult as I thought it would be. For this exam (not cumulative), there was a take-home portion (case-based short answers) regarding fluid therapy for sick patients and an in-class portion (multiple choice) regarding diseases of the liver and diarrhea issues. Some of the material for the in-class exam portion did remind me of studying for bacteriology, virology, and parasitology all over again because of the lists of diseases from these critters we have to be concerned about. I managed to do well in that class.
The last final for this week, theriogenology (not cumulative), was taken on Friday. This time we had to learn about stallion, dog, and cat reproduction. The material I was studying for was so organized and engaging. However, they made the final only 25 questions like the 3rd exam we took. I do not like this at all because there is not enough questions to buffer my grade. The questions were also very challenging and picky again. I hope I did well (Update: Did fine!)
This past weekend, I took part in “AthHalf”, which is a half marathon (13.1 miles) celebrating music and art here in Athens. I was inspired to run this marathon because a classmate of mine who lost 50 pounds decided to run this marathon. After the 10th mile, I was ready to collapse and go to sleep. My knees and ankles felt like they were going to dislocate, but it was all worth it! 🙂
Here is me with church members my Bible study group are a part of. I was able to finish in around 2:15:00.
One more week to go!
