You know those anxiety dreams where you go to take an exam and as soon as you get the paper you blank out? That was me and the neuroanatomy exam yesterday. I was exhausted from a marathon study session the day before, and apparently I actually fell asleep during the exam. The parts where I was awake weren’t much better.
Oh well! The other exams were alright, and I really am not stressed about anything. (Sleep-deprived, yes, but not stressed.) I took yesterday night off to recuperate and eat applesauce and watch a melodramatic costume drama on DVD. Good times. There’s one more to go, and then I am done.
It’s really shocking to think that the year is almost over. In a lot of ways, I feel like we just got here. I’m moving back home on Thursday; starting work the day after Memorial Day. Perhaps I should have looked into something international — I’m very interested in global health as a possible career, and I’m exceedingly jealous of my friends who are going abroad (postcards, please!) — but I think the job will be interesting, and I’m not going to deny that it’ll be nice to be home and taken care of for a few months. (I’m grown up, really!)
