Hey, everyone! Yes, it is that dreaded time again. Finals!
Although my schedule is much more abbreviated than EVERY other
trimester I've been here, I cannot believe the amount of tedious
assignments that I've had, from writing cases to five-page papers
PLUS studying for the finals I have next week. What you should get
used to is having anywhere from 10 to14 finals, which is very
different from undergrad. Some of the classes here have both a
lecture portion as well as lab portion and you will most likely
have finals (written and practical) in both of those classes. Don't
freak out yet because you WILL get through it with hard work and
This week went by quick because we had Ryan's mom and little
cousin visit us from Michigan on their spring break. We had fun
going shopping with them, getting pedicures (well, not Ryan ), and
eating amazing food! Then we got bad news that Ryan's grandpa was
in the hospital and we rushed to Michigan to spend time with him
and the family over the weekend. Overall, it was a stressful
weekend due to his grandpa's health problems, but also finishing up
all the assignments that I had so I could focus on studying! But
Ryan's grandpa is back home now and doing much better so we are
very happy and relieved about that.
My finals line-up is not that bad this time around. I have one
to two finals every day from Monday to Thursday next week, and I am
ready to get them over with! After finals, we are doing an "Earth
Day 5k" and I think I'm more nervous about that! Ha ha! Our good
friends just did a half marathon over the weekend and I am freaking
out about a 5k! I know, I know… it's only a little over three miles
so I hope all this working out (6 days a week) kicks in that
Well, enjoy the weather (spring is coming or here?) and study
hard if you have finals coming up like me! I will see you all in
bright and sunny May!!
