Friday Night’s Alright (For Studying)

Week 2 of year 2 is done; it feels like I’m in the trenches of study war. There’s so much to keep track of, to read and memorize, that it’s hard to make time for other things, and impossible for me to do it without feeling guilty. I’ve got to improve my work-life balance skills.

On Thursday, we had our first 2 physiology quizzes of the semester. Those will be a weekly event to keep us on top of the material, but it also makes it hard to prioritize the other subjects — except when they have midterms! It’s enough to drive me cray cray, and did for a few days, but I’m resolved to remember that I’m doing what I want in a place that feels like home, and that happiness is not to be overlooked!

Today, I walked home with Bianca (who gives a much more thorough summary of our hectic days on her blog) from biochemistry lecture, and that was a welcome reminder that I’m not in the trenches alone.  Onwards!

Before that, though, I must wish an early and very happy birthday to our one and only Jarkie! 

That's us celebrating her birthday at Alivia's in Durham last year :)
