4 more finals left!

May 17, 2015 @ 5:07 pm


It turns out I did really well on my skills final (the one that I was worried about)! No retake for me! Whoo!

I did terribly on some of my exams in one class, Neurophysiology, however. -.- I'm trying to study "early" rather than even more last minute than usual, so that I can have time to study more for neuro. My current dilemma is that I want to do really well in all of my other classes (I'm borderline doing really well in all of them except for neuro…), but I also don't want to fail neuro. The smartest thing to do would be to compromise and not strive for A's in my other classes so that I can just focus on neuro. I've never really had to do that before and it's completely against my nature. T_T We will see. It's kind of motivating me to use every hour of my precious time so that I don't have to go down that route, but I might have to bite the bullet and just do it later as my neuro exam gets closer.

I have Clinical Methods on Mon, Medicine on Tues, Ophthalmic optics on Wed, and Neurophysiology on Thursday. And then it's freedommmmmm!!!!!!!!! So close yet so far! I can do this (hopefully!)!!! Time to down that coffee!!

Also, I bought a desk chair for $5 from an upperclassman who is moving away for rotations lol. I'm so glad I did! My old chair got super flat and lost all it's cushion so my butt always hurts when I study. Haha. Now my butt is happy and my back has more support! *thumbsup*

I've got all-you-can-eat sushi lined up for lunch after my last final ;)

In the long stretch! Case history & communication skills

May 13, 2015 @ 4:40 am


I've been absolutely terrible at updating. At one point I did think to myself, maybe I should just continue to make little updates about what is on my mind, even if it's about optometry school 95% of the time. I could try explaining the new skills I learn and […] Continue Reading…

I'm currently on "winter recess" so I have one week off of optometry school – whoo hoo!!! So, on Monday we had a magical Disneyland trip!

We headed to Disney California Adventures first – did not realize they actually opened at 10am and 9am was an "extra magic hour" for […] Continue Reading…

Sometimes I think I've made a really good connection with a friend, but time and life get in the way. For most of my life up until maybe a few years ago, I used to be one of those people who would say, "We should keep in touch; let's […] Continue Reading…

I had another study date with my classmate today for almost 5 hours – thank goodness for that. It's really hard to get back into studying after having such a fun break from school. When I got home, I pretty much just caught up with Legend of Korra, lol. […] Continue Reading…
