    I'm almost there, with only my anatomy final to go on Monday. Any first years already done with first semester? Second years finishing up pathology? Check in after your final exam and before your binge drinking begins, so you'll still be literate ;)

    oh man, finished on wednesday morning... kind of unfortunate because the mandatory post-exam period carbombs were partaken of at 10:30am. second year really kicks your ass, ay :). happy holidays.

    Glad that you're close to the end, hon. :thumbup: You're going to kick ass and then some! :D

    First year is first year. Little bit of this, little bit of that.






    Liver, what's up man??

    I finished my last midterm on friday.

    Thats right, midterm. Rather than finishing my first semester, Im done with 1 and a half trimesters (meaning i have 4 more weeks before i finish anatomy, physio, etc). Ahhhh well, alcohol now, study later!! :cool:

    I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE FINAL ON WEDNESDAY TO BE OVER.

    If I never see another common interosseous artery, it'll be too soon.

    We have blocks of eight weeks instead of semesters. The block ended last Wednesday. We had our anatomy practical on Monday, clinical skills exam on Tuesday, and final on Wednesday. The scores for the final were posted a few hours ago, and it looks like I passed the block! :D

    Ugh.

    This down time is killing me.

    I finished last Thursday, did hardcore Step One review up until yesterday, then hit a brick wall. Now the ennui is driving me up the wall. I just want to get back in the melee and finish this nightmare.

    April 10, baby!

    I'm done now, yay!

    I'm actually going to have to study over break though, because we have exams the third week back. We only had our Nutrition final this week, so I have Pathology, Pharm and Pathophysiology coming up in January. :(

    Oops.. I missed the memo and am responding after sobering up. ;) Yay! We're done... for like 10ish days...can I just say how envious I am of those of you w/ three week breaks! Argh. I know it's blasphemous...but I am so freaking bored. Not that I want to jump into Neuro. but I don't know what to do w/ myself all freaking day. And what am I gonna do next semester with no anatomy lab taking all afternoon?? Frightening. :) I'm only slightly kidding. Anywhoot... hope all ya'll have a blast over break with your loved ones. Peace oooot! :love:

    how long are most of your winter breaks? ours at KU if fcuking way short. dec. 18-jan 2. the main campus in lawrence is out dec. 18 - jan 20... I MISS UNDERGRAD.

    speaking of which, has anyone else sort of stopped reeling from the whirlwhind of med school to realize they really miss some of the things they used to have time for? like fun, for instance?

    during the semester it wasn't so bothered by this feeling; i mean a little, but now that i don't have like 8 exams coming it seems that i miss some of the stuff i used to be about back when in had time to be about anything other than physiology and anatomy. hopefully i keep things more in perspective in the future; but the cynical realist is laughing at the back of this thought pointing out how few people i know that actually have become more interesting during med school.

    ok, sounds like i need a zoloft and a beer. only only 5 more days to try and rebalance the chemicals is in my brain using as many recreational pharmaceuticals as possible.
