Week’s Itinerary= Musculoskeletal Final, SA Digestive Final, and Radiology
Guess where I am now . . .
Yep! I am at the beach with friends!
I am so thrilled that my core classes are finally over. This week consisted of no sleep and eating delicious junk food as I took my last three final exams. Monday was Musculoskeletal, and I was a little nervous for this one. For one, it was the only final out of all the classes to be cumulative, and this final is 50% of our grade (hate this!). It was all multiple choice between three professors with three different personalities. You could tell which professor was kinder than the others based on their questions.
SA Digestive Final (not cumulative) was challenging,, but I surprisingly enjoyed taking it. It made me feel like a doctor where I had to read a case and make very important decisions that will best help the patient. It can be tricky because some of the questions can be subjective, but the professors are trying to prepare us to make decisions for ourselves instead of just memorizing information on slides. I really appreciate that type of learning.
My last final, Radiology (not cumulative), was the day right after taking SA Digestive. I was determined to learn all of that information before taking the exam. I did not fail! I managed to get a B (will take it in a heartbeat).
I feel so at peace now that I am done with everything. Thank you for listening to my struggles and triumphs this semester. Next is electives, so you won’t hear from me until December. Can’t wait to share my adventures with you all soon!
Here are more pictures from my trip!
Fish chowder by the campfire followed by smores and jacuzzi action!
Uh oh!! Yeah. . . on our way back from our trip, I experienced another freak accident that involved another animal. We hit a deer! It was quite a scary experience, but I am so glad none of us got hurt except for my friend’s totaled car 😦 Why do these animals keep wanting to hurt me!? Honestly and surprisingly, my pit bull attack was way scarier than this because this car crash happened so quickly, and I didn’t see anything (just the impact, smoke from the blown airbags, and not knowing where we would stop and end up at was the only scary thing).
“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.”
