Semester I is over. Thank God.

IMG_5612It has been a super stressful week.  I am so glad finals are over. Overall, I quite well, mostly A’s.  But I got B’s in two classes and I’m honestly pissed about it. In anatomy I was less than a 1/2% from getting an A. I worked very hard in that class.  But I admit I wasn’t ready for the final exam.  I wasted way too much time getting ready for Physics and Medical Ethics. Way. Way. Way.

Whatever.  I finished graduate school at the University of Wisconsin with a 3.965 GPA. I have nothing to prove in terms of my intelligence.  So I know I should be perfectly happy with what I did and just be more motivated to kick it next semester.

Returning to school has been rough.  I was forced to take a Communications class which was both demeaning and yet extremely time consuming. I should have been focusing on the important stuff like Anatomy, but I was too busy with all sorts of creative writing samples and busywork. Like hell was I going to fail that class, so I made it a priority, which was in retrospect quite stupid.  Same with high school level conceptual Physics Class and Study Skills. These classes really tested me emotionally.  I almost walked a plethora of times. I am fortunate that I met a fellow contemporary student who let me vent.  I am so glad that I have her in my life and really hope that I get to know her better during this program.  She is an inspiration.

So I have a week to indulge in my yoga practice and get me back to center.  I hope to tackle a few projects around the crib.  It should be a pretty awesome week.

Off to meditate and walk the Basenjis. Then off to Hot or Not.

Namaste.

Rooting for the Hawks, but concerned about the frigid conditions that they will encounter in MN.  That football is gonna be like a chunk of ice. Brrrrrrr. I am so glad I no longer live in that land of extremes.  

 

I'd love to hear what you think :)
