As a vet student, I don’t doubt that things are hard. In fact, here in the Philippines, I think the curriculum is extremely difficult to handle. I’ve been staying afloat with the amount of work that we have had to do so far, but quizzes, tests and other things just seem to keep popping up. Apparently for tomorrow, there is a rumor that there will be Immunology quiz, which means that I’m going to be spending a good amount of time tonight studying for that. On Thursday evening, we also have a scheduled Pharmacology lab test. Since tomorrow is our last lab and lecture session before the test, I’ll also have to go over all of that material tonight in order to be able to bring up any questions I may have to our professor, Dr. Grace Reforsado.
It’s a lot of work, but I think I can get through it. Luckily, Dr. Reforsado has been very open and helpful about what we should be learning in Pharmacology and is willing to clear up any problems we may have with the material. And as for Immunology, well, I’ll just do my best to learn the material tonight.
In other news, I actually just came back from a few intense volleyball game between two veterinary organizations here at UPLB: The Lady Veterinary Students’ Association (LV) and Rodeo Club (RC). I was asked by Lady Vets to help them out in their volleyball game, and I found out tonight that I was their only guy. I was of course not surprised, but they’re a really nice bunch of people so win or lose, I thought it would be fun. The games, to say the least, were really close and intense. The games went up to 21. We lost the first volleyball game to RC, but the ladies and I were able to pull it together for the next game. Since we had both won one game a piece, we went into a 15-point final sudden death match and lo and behold the Lady Vets and I came out on top. All in all I had a fun time and maybe for their next game, if I’m not too swamped, I’ll play for them again. (Haha, come to think of it, I should be considered an honorary member of LV for all the things I do for them! )
Anyway, now that I’ve got my muscles warmed up and my heart pumping, I think I’m ready to hit more of the books. Until next time, see you guys on the flip side!
