Day 14+15: Re-evaluating plans

Yes that’s exactly what happened during those two days. I’ve pretty much just been playing out different “USMLE scenarios” in my head, changing my schedule as a result of those horrible “scenarios” and repeating step 1 and 2 over and over. I seriously need to go a little faster. I can’t afford to take a whole freaking week to finish one section of FA! Ha! I haven’t even finished Cardio and its been more than a week already.

I feel like I need to switch gears. I might just memorize stuff in the mornings and use the afternoons to go over new material and then the evenings for questions. Memorizing is taking FOREVER! I don’t know how people do it in such a short period of time. I’m so aggravated, anything can tick me off at this point. Its not healthy.


Day 8+ Day 9: Cardiology II

The weather has been pretty bad for the past few days. Very gloomy and depressing and on top of that, we’re expecting 5cm of snow tonight! Just when we thought winter was over…

I didn’t blog yesterday. Partly because I was sick (I have IBS and it gets bad when I’m stressed out so yesterday was pretty much spent in the bathroom) and partly because there was really nothing to blog about, I didn’t accomplish much. Today, I was slowly recovering all the fluids I lost yesterday. I was dizzy and tired when I woke up this morning so it took me a while to regain my strength and get the ball rolling. I still didn’t accomplish much. I barely got through half of Cardio physiology. Still haven’t touched murmurs (murmurs give me nightmares). I am so behind and Cardio is giving me a hard time. I haven’t done any Cardio questions yet beside the 9 anatomy questions from last week. I am pretty nervous to try physio questions but its gotta happen.
