My brain has left me for an early holiday…

 

Only one exam left! Yes, I’ve made it this far (don’t know how, but I’ve survived).

Currently my brain seems to be taking an early leave for summer holiday, so I’m left feeling somewhat empty-headed.

Actually, no, I feel like the space that is normally occupied by my little brain has been filled with mucus produced by my body in defense against all of this flipping pollen that’s flying around at the moment. Thanks body, so nice of you to look after me (and make me feel like I have a cold…).

Anyway, only one exam left! Yay!
I’m so done. There is no way my brain can take any more information at this point (which is probably why it decided to leave early). Luckily I’ve already gone over the material once before (we had two tests already, and the last one is sort of a recap of everything – yay… not).

This is pretty much what has been going on in my head for the past few days – thank you information overload! (it has lyrics, please sing along 😛 )

I will try to push through these last few days of torture and then enjoy my well-deserved holiday! I’m sure ice cream and chocolate will be my best friends as I try to survive 🙂 😉 😛

To those who are still struggling: You can do it!
To those lucky bastards who have already successfully escaped to holiday land: Good job, please don’t rub it in 😉
To myself: Soon… very soon.

Christmas Holidays and a wrap-up of autumn term at the vet school

Well, it’s been a while to say the least. The reason for the pretty much complete lack of posts this autumn is simple; I have been working my a$$ off for uni.
We’ve had some seriously intense courses (read: immunology), which has led to me reaching the edge of a mental and physical breakdown at times. Anatomy has been the same pain it always is, but with a few new kicks 😉 (still have two exams to do in January, both anatomy) However, I can proudly say I’ve passed every single oral anatomy test so far and I only have a written test on blood vessels and the final exam left.

This autumn term has also been full of memorable moments (which will be in no particular order, since I can’t recall exactly when everything happened, so I’ll just toss them on the  list in the order they pop up into my little (very tired) brain 🙂 )

  • The Freshers’ party (best translation I could come up with for “fuksiaiset”…)
    • this was the reason we carried 5 kg of macaroni around town (see? I never explained that! Too flippin’ busy)
  • J got a cat!
  • I took Mysse along with me in August, really helped with the homesickness
    • … seems I miss the dogs and cats and frogs and other critters more than my human family, is that a bad thing?)
    • I took part in a little dog training hobby thing (rallytoko) with Mysse. It was great seeing him having so much fun, and learning a few things that I can teach my own dogs in the future
  • I got my Fennica colours at the beginning of December
    • won’t go into too much detail on this one, because it’s so difficult to explain and translate everything, but basically I’ve earned the right to wear coloured ribbons and a pretty cap at certain events 😛

Representing at korp! Sakala . Here I still had the black cap, but now i’ve earned the nice white one 🙂

  • I’ve given more presentations than ever before, some were individual, some were with a partner and some were group works (some of which ended up being individual presentations for me, because for some strange reason people don’t enjoy giving presentations and really enjoy giving the job to me.. I’ve learned to accept my part as the presenter, so it doesn’t really bother me 🙂 )

Seeing as the year is coming to an end tomorrow I’ll be sharing my autumn term “playlist” tomorrow or on January 1st and I’ll also make a completely separate post for my goals and wishes for 2017.

I hope everyone had a joyful, loving Christmas ♥

I didn’t last until the last exam

Today I was supposed to give my last exam; an attempt to raise my Russian results. A higher force, however, had other plans for me. I’ve spent the last day + some more excreting everything and anything I’ve tried to ingest.
Oh well, blueberry soup has proved to be a lifesaver.  Coke too!
I can’t remember when I last felt this drained of energy…. and water!

The chemistry of exams…

Haha this describes exactly how I feel about tomorrow’s chemistry exam 😛 I’ve studied, I’ve tried to understand… It goes beyond my understanding 😛

Fair enough I think my maths exam went better than anticipated – I didn’t cry or break down 😀 Although I think (know) I did something strange 😛
