I feel like I just arrived in Memphis, but then I think about how much we have done in class and how many lectures we have on Tegrity (a website that records our lectures and syncs audio with the PowerPointslides) and realize that we are a month in already. These last two weeks, which I expected to drag as I waited for family to arrive for White Coat Ceremony, have flown by. Here's the count so far, since Monday the 20thwe have had 4 exams, one lab practical and have one more big quiz tomorrow (a quiz worth 15% of our grade-that's basically an exam in my book). I was very nervous for our exams. I shook the entire time during my lab practical, but like Dr. Eubank said, it helped because I didn't have to move the scope as much. Hah!
White Coat Ceremony is tomorrow afternoon. Family is arriving tomorrow morning and staying through the weekend, so I'm cutting my time on Tegrity short this weekend (until Sunday when Neuroanatomy studying begins). We will formally receive our white coats and be recognized at the ceremony, which is pretty exciting. After two weeks of hard studying, I am planning on taking it easy with my family this weekend. We're going to the zoo, Gibson Guitar factory, eating out and having a picnic along the Mississippi River. Can't wait for them to arrive!
