Merry Halloween everybody! School was off due to the holiday today so that was pretty nice. I pretty much just sat around all day, so it was nice and relaxing..... Boy don't I wish the previous statement was true! But, no, we did not have off for halloween, it was learning, and learning and learning as usual! I even had my first quiz today. It was forty multiple choice questions (about equivalent to an exam in undergrad but its just a quiz in vet school, makes me excited to see what an exam is like! (that was sarcasm there just in case you didn't catch it ;) I felt pretty good about the quiz, there were a few anatomy questions I wasn't totally sure on (such as "What is the nerve that innervates the muscle(s) that attach to the popliteal sesamoid?") I did go to a review trivia session last night, but wasn't real impressed by it so won't go back this coming Sunday anyways. However, the rest of my weekend was real good (minus the 6 hours of studying I put in on Saturday). I went to Eureka and spent time with Uncle Dan, Heather and Andrea (hi Andrea, I would say hi to Heather but she doesn't really look at this blog!) They had a singing Friday night and then Saturday I studied, and studied, and......studied. I did take a study break however and went to see the deer that a relative of mine raises. Here's just a couple photos that I shot while I was there:
This one here is a picture of a few of the fawns in the fawn pen:
This one has a doe in the doe pen and also a fawn in the adjacent fawn pen:
It was neat to see the deer up close like that. I will, however, get to see them even more close this coming Sunday afternoon when I head over there when the vet comes to inseminate the females. I will talk more about that once it is over but I am quite excited to get the opportunity to watch/assist where I can.
School does continue to challenge me, it is definitely the most intense schooling I have ever done. However, the material, for the most part, is interesting and that helps make it easier to study (although I still don't always feel like studying!) I can't believe that we are in our third week of classes already. It really is amazing how the time just flies!
