A Day in the life of a BIMS student

Howdy! I want to take you through a day in the life of a biomedical science student! But before I start, I will give you a little information about me. I am currently a senior at Texas A&M University majoring in Biomedical Science. I am only taking biomedical physiology and statistics this semester and I am graduating this May! I plan to go to veterinary school to become a small veterinarian and I absolutely LOVE animals.

Okay, so back to my day! This morning my alarm went off at 7 am. I think I pressed snooze about 5 times because I did not want to get up. I stayed up late last night reading for my physiology class, so I was really tired this morning. Once I got myself out of bed, I got ready for work, fed my kittens and guinea pigs, walked my dogs, and then ran out the door with a Monster Energy Drink® and a Fiber One® bar. Once I got to work, I finished up reading for my physiology class and reviewed some notes and then before I knew it, it was time for physiology class. Class seemed to go by so slow, but finally after 50 minutes it was done and I could go home.

Once I got back to my apartment, I reviewed my notes from class and then ate lunch. I have a four-hour break between my two classes, so today I was able to start some laundry and go get my nails done during that time. Then 2:40 pm came around and I had to go to my statistics class. I had trouble finding parking in the parking garage, so I ended up getting to class right when it started. Unfortunately for me, all of the seats had already been taken in class so I had to sit on the floor. After 50 minutes of sitting on the cold, hard floor, I was finally done with class for the day! I went straight to my apartment to review my notes and then I continued with chores. I put my laundry away, changed the guinea pig bedding, and then ate dinner while relaxing on the couch watching “The Bachelor.” If there is one thing I have learned in school, it’s that you need to give yourself a break from school work and give yourself some “You” time or else you will go crazy.

The last thing I did for the day was go to the gym. I end most of my days with going to the gym to lift weights and burn calories doing cardio. I have found that going to the gym is a great way to relieve stress and I definitely always need to relieve stress! Finally at midnight I crawled into bed to finish this blog. I hope when I wake up I will have a “code maroon” on my phone telling me there is no school because of snow and ice! Anyways, time to go to sleep! I hope you have gained some insight into what it is like to be an undergraduate student! Goodnight, Ags!
