It's that time again....pre-exam weekend! Everyone's been holed up studying all day, doing their own thing.
Except for me. I have not been studying.
Don't get me wrong, I've been trying. I have a study schedule all planned out, I have my list of things to do and an order in which to do them, I have my books and notes and pens all ready to go.
But I just can't do it.
I don't know if it's the weather (overcast and blech, good for reading comic books but bad for studying), lack of sleep (up late last night again, not for a good reason), or if I'm getting sick (woke up feeling bad this morning, and all I've done is sleep and eat..prime indicators that my body's about to bite it). Whatever it is, I can't seem to get through my notes. I've gotten through 2 lectures so far, I still have one more to do (the hardest) and a bunch of radiographs and cross-sections of the thorax to look at. It's enough to make a person violently ill.
So I've made an executive decision.
If I'm not going to retain anything, and stress myself out while studying because I'm not retaining anything....why bother? I think I'd be better served by resting tonight and really hitting the books hard tomorrow - one lecture shouldn't be that tough to make up and it's a more efficient use of my time. I hope.
The only scary thing is that we have 2 new anatomy segments to learn this week, I still haven't reviewed Embryology and I can't make myself care enough to change any of that. I don't know when I'm going to study next week, only that I'll fit it in somehow because I'll have to. I probably am getting sick, I'm usually not this apathetic about exams.
I'd rather knit in bed and watch Sex and the City than study or even go to my friend's place for movie night. I feel like I don't have the energy to be around people right now. Maybe I have mono. Or maybe it's just med student syndrome kicking in, combined with feeling sorry for myself.
Speaking of Sex and the City, in a 5th season episode (Luck be an old lady) Charlotte knits English-style on a plane!! How exciting. I've started noticing even the smallest knitting references, and it's always a pleasant "Oh..well look at that" type of feeling. So yes, Sex and the City + knitting. Toldja knitting was cool.
On the upshot, I've finished my 2nd pretty purple flower washcloth, and I think I'm going to make one more. I really love working with cotton, it feels *good* to knit with. Course, I'm far too lazy to take a picture of the 2 washcloths together right now, just like I'm too lazy to take a picture of the completed shoulder seams on my sweater right now. I'll get it done eventually...
Just like studying for this upcoming exam.
