Journal Entry #12

May 10, 2003

    It's a gloomy-looking Saturday today.  It's even more gloomy when I think of the exams that are looming ahead of us.  One week from Tuesday, on May 20th, we will have our first professional exam.  The subject will be biomolecular science.  I have been told "no one fails biomolecular science"...but that does not ease my worries.  It's a subject I have been relatively strong in, getting B's to A-'s in so far.  The fact that professional exams actually go on your transcripts worries me.  Also the fact that if you don't pass, you must re-sit, and if you don't pass the don't move on to third year.  Everyone has the same feelings about professional exams: they are definitely scary the first time you take them. 

    Today I woke up late and will probably go to bed late.  It becomes a nasty habit...sleeping in late and going to bed in the wee hours of the morning.  Our last lecture was yesterday.  It was in animal husbandry and was a guest speaker about "Animal Behaviour and Welfare".  Now we have time to study/revise.  I will start a little later today, hopefully not to go online much more because it's a major distraction. 

    Last night we had the girls over to celebrate my birthday.  My birthday is on the 12th, but Friday night was best for us to have people over.  We had a lot of fun, playing "Cranium" and eating pizza and cake until midnight.  It's probably the last fun we'll have until exams!  It's very sad.  Tomorrow is Mother's Day.  I can't wait to call and talk to my Mom, who is visiting my sister in San Antonio, Texas with my Dad.  I bet I'll get a chance to talk to a little of everyone in my family there, which should be very nice. 

    This is probably the last journal entry you'll see until exams are over.  At that time, my parents will be here visiting me.  It seems like such a long time away, but it's only 5 weeks or so. 2003-2006, Cindy Fulton
