I wrote my dissertation interviews!! YAAAY. This means that if my supervisor signs off on it I can begin my research interviews next week which puts me 3-4 weeks ahead of my initial Gantt chart:D

jofalltrades, let us know how your week looks like when you finish your planning.

I read a paper this morning and I have to finish the last Aeneid's book before the end of the day (that's my life goal: read two papers/chapters/whatever relevant to my studies each day). I've been playing the piano, too, but very little (is it correct saying 'very little' when I want to say 'not much time'?).

That's awesome!! It feels great to be ahead of schedule :) 

 

I was up early to submit a project that was due at noon, now I'm off to work, and have to rush home after to throw together a small 1 page paper that's due at midnight tonight. Cuttinng it a little close, but the projects I had due Mon/ today were each work 30%, and this paper is only worth 5%, so it got shafted. I'll spend tomorrow planning out the next month. Luckily grad students at my school don't have exams, so I'll be done December 6th, and get an entire month off :o

So today I plan on studying a little more for my exam that I have tomorrow and then get a good night's sleep hopefully! I didn't get a chance to study as much as I would like for my exam that I had today, but I think I still did okay. My challenge is suffering already from the busy week so far, but after my test tomorrow, I'll be planning the rest of my semester and starting to prepare for those final exams! This also gives me time to build a routine for my fitness goals.

How did your exams go? I'm getting ready to study for at least 2 hours!! I did come up with something to help me remember the difference between concentric motion and eccentric motion. Concentric is when you are CONquering the move and eccentric is when you are Exiting the move. Whew. It's hard to remember all this stuff!!

And now I'm completely confused again. I'm really worried about my exam next month. :/

We don't have exams during the semester, which is a relief, but we have to do so many assignments I just sit here and cannot even decide where to start. I'll have to write it all down and maybe find an app that could plan it for me because my mind just shuts down when I try to do it myself :S

I am beginning to think that 4 hours per week is not going to be enough... I am just not getting all the anatomy stuff... I am going to have to devote a LOT more time to studying if I am going to have any chance of passing!!

May I join?

 

I am working towards the GRE general exam, and either the math or physics subject test (because the timing is awful and until September there is just one option - April). I am also intending to do other studying, mostly physics and math, but also computer stuff, and possibly languages (foreign and computer). I tried a 1 hour a day goal last challenge, and failed. This challenge I expanded the marker to include writing as well and hope to go well enough at establishing the habit that I can work at an hour each.

 

So far I have not done well at all, and what I have done is mostly extra writing projects for my internship. I did work on some GRE vocabulary today.

 

Is there room for another person?

Thanks, it is mostly a lot of procrastinating. 

 

Today I finished narrowing my list to 5 graduate schools, sorted them from preferred to 5th place, and found most of the GRE and admission information (school code, average GRE scores, application cost, application deadline). Unfortunately #1 has the deadline of December 15th, and I will not have a GRE score by then.

That stinks, but I believe that everything happens for a reason, so maybe one of the other schools will be better for you! :)

What about anatomy is tripping you up? Assuming it's human anatomy I might be able to help ... I was a TA for that course for 3 years and still help out in the lab :) Anatomy in general though is mostly about spending the time memorizing everything, although I found all the acronyms really help. I can send you a list if you haven't heard of them before :)

I would love a list of the acronyms! I'm just finding it really hard to remember all the scientific names and where everything is!

I sent it to you via a private message! Some of the acronyms are not quite PG, lol. I hope they help though :) And feel free to message me if you have any other questions! I honestly found the most helpful thing was to use either flashcards or charts, or get an anatomy colouring book and take the time to color everything in while labeling it with origin, insertion, innervation, and function. For my anatomy class the colouring book was listed as a required textbook, lol! I would also just create empty charts, and just fill them in over and over until I had it memorized.

Thanks so much!! I meant to pick up anatomy coloring book while we were out this weekend but totally spaced it!

Hey scout, good work on the studying! I'm new here, and I'd like to join your group. Though probably I should be studying right now lol.

I'm a final year med student, at the stage where I am supposed to have anatomy down pat and able to apply it easy. But there's one tiny fact about the human brain-- it tends to forget what it learned years ago! So yeah, anatomy is still hard. Let's work together!

Personally I find Netter's anatomy flashcards very useful. And drawing the structures out really helps! Hope that helps you too!

Welcome to the group!:) I'm still struggling with the anatomy, but I think I just need to get the images in my head and I am hoping they will stick!!
