Midterms last week were enormously stressful. My crib went to hell all week. I don’t like when I don’t attend to my real life. The exams went ok. I didn’t expect the kinesiology exam to focus on what it did. Had I been given warning, I would have spent time on that. I focused on what I thought would be the relevant info (and there was a LOT!). Oh well.
So this weekend, I pretty much gave myself a break. I did write up my goals for my first 2 week clinical at the end of August. I did read the student manual. But I also cleaned the crib, gardened, did a LOT of yoga, which my soul definitely needed. I didn’t really feel like taking pictures of it though. And I played with my beloved Romeo and Zena a lot.
Therefore, I SHOULD be studying for a quiz I’m taking in a few hours. I did study for several hours earlier this morning…. But these sort of soul-crushing quizzes…. I could study and study some more but I still don’t perform well on them. They sort of focus on the minutiae that my brain doesn’t take in. I mean I could, if I had a lot of time. I know I grok the overall picture, but remembering exactly how many days inflammation lasts, when I KNOW that will be patient dependent…. Well…. My brain glosses over stuff like that.
I know I did a kick-ass job on the HW assignment. Hopefully that will pay off. But I fully expect I won’t do well on the nit-picky quiz. (and I know saying stuff like that could offend/get me in trouble…. ) But Hey, I feel better. I’m not bashing. Just emoting.
So on that note… I’m gonna give another go. We shall see.
Have a lovely day All 🙂
