Finals have arrived and I'm actually almost done! Over a week ago, I wasn't sure how I was going to get everything done before packing up and heading north. Besides practicals, which mostly finished at the end of November, we've taken 6 exams and have just one more tomorrow. As a class, we are able to pick our own exam schedule. In order to avoid having two exams on the same day, we had a Saturday exam. In the past 6 days, we've had 5 exams. Yikes. Needless to say, it will definitely be a much deserved two weeks in Northern Michigan. It's been the kind of week where I keep telling myself, like little lost Nemo, to "Just keeping swimming."
It's weird to think that another semester of optometry school is over (almost!). I'm 3/8 of the way done! Second year has been a blast with learning new skills in lab, as well as finally getting time with patients in the eye center and school screenings. I've gotten to meet a lot of great first years and become more familiar with the 3rd and 4th years. It's also been really fun to meet prospective students and their guests on interview day.
Now it's time to clean my apartment, pack up my sweaters and mittens and get ready to go back to the mitten state! Alright, I need to study a little bit too. Happy Holidays and safe travels to all over the break!
