Maybe not

OK, maybe I won't be getting my H1N1 vaccine, at school, next week: There's a shortage of vaccine in Canada.

Midterm exams

I'm almost finished writing my midterm exams for this semester. I still have a couple of midterms and a test to write next week. The workload for this semester is a bit heavier than last semester. I'm now able to keep on top of things because I figured out how to study effectively and efficiently last semester.

All of the courses I'm taking now, seem relevant and important.

Not drinking vast quantities of coffee has given me a lot more energy. I'm now just drinking tea and diet Pepsi. I sleep like a baby and can study for hours and hours. I've also noticed that I'm not nearly as stressed as I was when I was drinking lots of coffee.

I should be getting my H1N1 shot next week. There have been lots of sick people in school lately, including myself. I wonder how many of them were sick with H1N1. Lots of people in my class are talking about not getting the H1N1 vaccine, for one kooky reason or another. Anti science/medicine kooks are annoying.

September was hard

The work load this semester has been pretty brutal. I've pretty much given up having any delusions about doing anything, other than studying this semester. I don't even pretend anymore. What am I doing this weekend? Studying. If you have a problem with that, you can talk to me about it in January 2011.

My Cardiodiagnostics course has been pretty tough. We thought we had to learn Basic Arrhythmias (also known as lead II EKG interpretation) this semester. We were wrong. We had to learn Basic Arrhythmias in 3 weeks. I wrote my my first Cardiodiagnostics quiz this week and passed by 2%.

Someone in my class was talking about dropping out and joining the Army. I think he might have been serious.

I was in pretty rough shape last week, with a cold that was kicking my ass.

I have 5 tests next week.

Despite the heavy workload, I'm enjoying school quite a bit. I must be a glutton for punishment.
