It 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.
