It’s a Love-Hate Thing…

Currently, taking a break from studying for my pharmacotherapeutics exam that’s tomorrow. (Crash course in pharmacokinetics and the Women’s Health module).  The exam’s going to be 16 questions related to kinetics (6 with calculations, bleh), and 32 questions related to women’s health (8 per topic – contraceptives, menstrual disorders, pregnancy/lactation, and menopause/osteoporosis). Funny how only 6 lectures can still accumulate so much information!

I feel that every day I’m studying a gazillion hours, but last week it definitely paid off when I took my pharmacology exam (20/21 right, baby!). I’ve been putting the majority of my time into therapeutics though, since I didn’t do so hot last semester (probably rivaled as my worse semester ever).

I’m really enjoying the subjects this semester now that I’m going into the core of pharmacy-related material (no more of that biochemistry, immunology, physiology, etc.). I’ve managed to stay awake in class every day, which is always a good thing. Sometimes, I just can’t help it!!

Hopefully everything that I’ve been trying to stick in my noggin’ will stay where it should be. As my dad puts it, knowledge is the crap that you can remember.

I can’t wait until the exam is over tomorrow! Gonna finally go grocery shopping and attempt to make a Chicken and Gnocchi soup Olive Garden style. I found a recipe for it on CopyKat, and it’s one of my favorite soups. The other one is the Zuppa Toscana. We’ll see how it goes!

Anyhow, break time’s over. Time to study again! Pregnancy/Lactation, here I come!!!
