Poke me with a stick

I've been poked. Apparently I don't post often enough. It's probably true, this blog really gives very little indication of what it's like to be in vet school. Unless you can surmise that my lack of updating means that I have a lot to do, and I don't spend my time on blogger. To be honest, I spend my time on livejournal ;-) my first and true love. :-)

This semester is kinda awesome. We have 3 week long classes that meet between 5 and 10 times. They're just long enough to get into and get a handle on, and then they end before I get bored or frustrated or overwhelmed. Most of our classes have been incredibly focused on cases, which has been amazing for sorting the masses of information in my brain. The file cabinets in my brain are getting better labeled and better organized. Information and the answers to questions is coming to the tip of my tongue faster and more easily.

I'm getting more and more excited about the fact that rotations start in April. January flew by, and it's already Valentine's Day! We're 5 weeks into a semester that's only 11 weeks long. I start rotations with Ophthalmology and Necropsy - I think they'll be good for solidifying my understanding of the hospital procedures and computer systems, and then pounding some good old pathophys into my skull. I don't expect either to be a walk in the park, but I'd rather ease in with fewer all-nighters and not have to hit the ground running.

Maybe I'll try to post again soon. Maybe I should give up on this fruitless endeavor. What will happen? Only time can tell!
