    Are you guys scheduling rotations or has that ship sailed? In any case, if you are and want a FANTASTIC externship, Leader Dogs for the Blind in Rochester Hills, MI just posted theirs and it was hands down one of my favourite and most useful externships in school. At least when I was there, they provide lots of the noms and housing and had just remodeled their hospital. If you like canine therio you can focus a bit more on those cases, but if not, it's still literally two-three weeks of roly poly guide dog puppies and joy and surgery and dentistry and fun stuff.

    I'd move my entire life and take a job with them with no questions asked if offered. Such an awesome place. Consider it if you have a spare slot.

    It's Saturday night on a long weekend. I just emailed a prof a question. We have a midterm first thing Tuesday and I'm confused, but also worried that might come across as a bit pathologic... :laugh::help:

    My dog is doing much better now after his HGE. Discharged from the hospital and he’s eating much better than...last year’s HGE. :smack:

    Still, I can’t work worth a damn when my dog is sick; I’m happy to see him turn around :love:

    I’ve definitely emailed professors at like 11 pm and I’m usually really shocked at the fact that they’re awake and reply back almost immediately. Like wow, it’s expected that I don’t have a life- what’s your excuse?

    Yup, I got an email back that night! Last year when I did that at one point, I got the reply (with a profuse apology) during the exam. Less helpful....

    Our professors will tell us not to email them after like 9pm the night before an exam because they can't guarantee that they'll respond in time

    Oh I don’t do it before the exam typically, and if I do, I never expect a reply. Just makes me smile when it happens. I typically just do it when I’m studying and have a question or something of the like

    You’d be surprised at how horrible work life balance can be for faculty. It’s one of the reasons I am leaning towards diagnostics over academia. They keep cutting faculty from my program but keeping all clinics and teaching requirements the same and adding more research...it’s not uncommon for my faculty to even work on weekends to keep caught up. Which sucks.

    I answer emails from my students really fast - but that’s because I’m a millennial and my phone is always in my hand.

    I just had one ask for study advice and it’s hard - like how do I tell someone how to study? I go over general things but it’s like, you gotta figure out how you learn. I can’t do that for you.

    And then I guess they have some test taking anxiety, and I’m not sure what advice to give on that, because I just had normal anxiety (like about the material) but not specific test taking type anxiety...

    Good day so far...exam and quiz went really well. Buckling down to write this paper now and hopefully have some time after to study a bit. I think I might actually survive?

    You can have some of mine, it's so cold I just curled up in bed and prayed for warmth when I got home (it's not actually that cold if you're going by true northener standards, only the 30s, but I'm dying)

    There's always one.

    Don't suppose you can send me some of your therio interest vibes so I can maybe not fail my exam tomorrow, can you? I've been studying but I'm not doing the best job of retaining...

    Cool, I'll take your cardio and you take my therio.

    Caveat: I can't guarantee that I'm stellar at cardio.

    Well I definitely should have just gone to sleep early last night instead of bothering to study. Pretty sure I could have studied for another week and not done any better on that exam :yeahright:

    Whoever told me this semester was easier than last semester lied. :dead: The classes are mostly more interesting (with the exception of food animal med), but junior surgery lab is a slog. Actually doing surgery last week went well, but there are so many extra responsibilities and vaguely defined expectations with JSL here, and your grade is on the line if you mess up. The anxiety and imposter syndrome is real. :oops:

    Ended up adopting this kitty. She is completely amazing. I can't believe how well she fits in with my family. And she's made the transition from outside cat to inside pretty easily.

    I picked my base clinic schedule today! It's going to get switched around a bit so I'm not going to put it in my signature yet (still have to pick electives, will likely end up moving my externship blocks, and I would like to get rid of Derm and maybe Equine Surgery...maybe Ortho too), but for now...

    Elective - Spay/Neuter - Small Animal Emergency - Farm Animal Med & Surgery - Equine Surgery - Diagnostic Imaging I - Diagnostic Skills - Pathology - Orthopedic Surgery - Avian/Exotics - Soft Tissue Surgery - Vacation (Zoo Vets/ ExoticsCon!!!) - Anesthesia - Community Practice - Externship - Dermatology - Farm Animal Field Services - Equine Med - Diagnostic Imaging II - Elective - Small Animal Internal Med - Externship - Equine Field Services
