The title roughly translates from the Tagalog (Filipino language) as… “I don’t want to anymore!!!” Or at least something to that effect.
Before I start on why I’m saying that, let me start off by saying a little something first.
Anyway, I’m writing this blog entry because I’ve decided to come back to my very own web-site and finally keep you guys updated. The last few months have been a little hectic and I’m really, really stressing out about everything right now. I’m really sorry to everyone who comes here (like the 2 or 3 of you who check regularly… haha), for I have been a really bad person in leaving my own blog alone for months. I want to get back into blogging about my experiences in the Philippines, but right now I’m just venting because I’m having a hard time.
I just came back from a virology test today and it SUCKED. And by sucked I mean MAJORLY SUCKED. I don’t think that I’ve ever come out of an exam that disjointed before. It was like I was in a trance, and so were all the other people in the room. To put it simply, the exam was not what many of us were expecting and in addition, we have had almost no time to study and prepare for the exams this past week. There’s always something to do, some report to write up, a quiz or test to study for or a surgery to prep for. In fact, this Friday I will be assisting in my first ovariohysterectomy on a cat, but unfortunately, after that surgery I will have to rush back to college to take yet another exam for my Parasitology lab class.
Honestly guys, school has been killing me softly.
I’m doing good in some places and not so good in others. The amount of work that has come crashing down on the vet students in 2nd year proper this month is killer, and I’d almost venture that it’s kind of unfair. Last month I had to put up with a 6 exam week. Next week I may be looking at a 7 to 8 exam week. There’s only 5 days of class yes, but somehow we have so many exams that some of them will have to be scheduled the following Saturday. That’s how bad it is.
Anyway, I can’t make this blog too long because I have stuff to do, but you guys get the picture. Vet school here is harder than anything I’ve come across so far, even during my times at Cornell. It is like graduate school yes, but I really hope to do well to become a doctor soon and finally stop with the crazy schooling. While I do realize that I’ll be taking seminars and learning all my life as a veterinarian, I imagine that it can’t be as bad as this.
Alright guys, I gotta split. Catch you all on the flip side. And leave some words of encouragement, will ya?
