December is a month many people look forward to all year long. Snow, Christmas songs, and holiday cheer seem to surround us. There's only one problem. FINALS! I seem to have to force myself not to think about all the fun and exciting times break will bring because when I start to, it's so much harder to study! This Friday we have our final in Posterior Segment Disease. A whole 90 pages worth of notes!
Luckily, as this semester's finals near, I'm realizing I have it pretty good. During third year we have a lot less classes than previous years so therefore, less finals! We only have three tests during actual finals week, therefore we actually get out a whole two days earlier than the first and second years. Just another perk I guess you can look forward to!
Unfortunately, with the closing of this semester brings the opening of next that much closer. The semester I have to take Part 1 of national boards. Students have already begun studying! I know it's gonna be a lot of hard work but it's just one more chapter in the life of an optometry student that we all must face. Wish me luck and have a wonderful holiday!
