Bye bye, excitement

I predicted that my excitement at school starting wouldn’t last very long. Well it’s gone. After 3 weeks of lectures and a week of exams, I don’t have much excitement left.

I had four exams this week: Pharmacology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Pathology. I did not perform anywhere near what I would have liked. (And I’ll just say I’m not a gunner. I’m not the kind of person who would get upset about scoring in the 80s instead of the 90s.) Needless to say, stress levels are up. I’m gonna have to buckle down.

One would think beginning second year shouldn’t be that hard after completing first year. Maybe for most of my classmates that was the case. But I seemed to struggle getting into the groove of things when we started. No, let me rephrase that. I did struggle getting into the groove of things. The frustrating thing is that I felt I was ready to start after a summer off.

It felt like there was a lot less time to study after lectures. I think its the afternoon labs.

But enough excuses. I need to get things together.
