It’s been two days since school finished…

What am I supposed to do now?

I woke up this morning at a decent hour, despite going to bed rather late after a birthday party with my family. I wrote my thank-yous for the lovely gifts I received, ate leftover cake for breakfast (still not really successful on the healthy eating thing yet), and added some new cue cards to my “midwifery, informed choice discussions, and placement” stack. I added things like strange conditions that we studied in anatomy related to pregnancy and  a few key items from other courses. I bought my pharmacotherapy text book online, as per my profs recommendation, with plans to read it over the summer. I put a reading schedule into my calendar, here’s hoping I keep it up when the nice weather comes. I prepped for a student council meeting, arranged some dates with friends for this week, and then finally sat on the couch with no idea what to do next…

What am I supposed to do now?

For the past two and a half weeks, I feel as if I’ve lived at school. I work on campus so I’ve been hauling my butt around between work and the lab. I’ve been at school every day at 8:30AM and usually leave around 8 or 9PM. I had some major stamina and it wasn’t until two days before the A&P exam did I really start to feel fried… but I pulled through. We all did!

I’m not going to lie, the multiple choice portion of our final exam was rough. My eyes welled up under the pressure afterwards. The bell ringer was so much better, however. All that time spent in the lab definitely paid off. I had a big smile on my face walking out of that exam…

So what am I doing now?

Honestly, I’m kind of sitting here stunned. How did this year go by so quickly? And how much faster is next year going to go by? The whole program? I feel like before I know it, I’ll be practicing… Now I’m getting ahead of myself. For now, it’s summer… so it’s time for yoga, work, and hikes with the dog. I miss school already!
