My, How Time Flies!
Well, the semester is coming to a close and it flew by like you
wouldn’t believe. The block scheduling of third year really makes
the time go by; you only have some classes for 4 weeks, so you are
not in most classes long enough to get tired of them; you are
actively wanting to learn the entire time. The only thing that is a
little tough is if you have exams in your core classes during the
last week of the block because you may have finals in your
electives. We had a pretty tough week a couple of weeks ago. I had
four exams in one week while others had three (it just depended on
your classes), but it was our last round of tests until finals,
which blew most of our minds.
After that horrible week of tests, I recently celebrated my
birthday. We had a birthday in our class almost every day last
week, so we decided to do a joint birthday celebration at the local
bowling alley. We invited the entire class and quite a few people
showed up; it was really great to get everyone together, which
really has not happened in a long time (maybe even since first
year) since everyone has been busy with exams and cases. For the
first time in a long time, I remembered one of the most important
things about vet school: your class quickly becomes your colleagues
and your friends.
