Anyway, I was all ready to post some reflective things before 2012 came into play but I was caught up in traveling back to Milwaukee on the 30th that I basically did a whole lot of nothing when I got back. Well, that's not true. I went to a party, two in fact! One at a classmate's house and another at Bruce's cousin's house. All were perfectly fine, nothing too exciting, which suits me just fine. Then I cleaned my room and apartment and prepared myself for the frigid weather (it was 19-degrees as a high on Monday!).
Classes began on Tuesday and it has been go-go ever since. I don't have my last "go" (as in go-go-go) because it's been a bit slow, picking it back up, but let me tell you, medical school waits for no one! I am trying something new and making flashcards to help me study for my classes this semester. I have the lovely cell tissue biology, physiology (a class I really enjoyed in post-bacc), medical interviewing, psychiatry (very basic stuff), and medical neuroscience (brains!) this semester.
I figured out some new learning strategies in hopes that I will have figured out medical school by the end of this
On the agenda, a formalish ball with my classmates on Saturday -- dressing up! An optometrist appointment -- vision! A business-casual-esque meeting with academic deans next week -- semi-dressing up and schmoozing! Oh, and studying. Always studying.
