In my first year we had quite a difficult Pharmacology course. It was well-known to be the course most often failed by first years and we were freaking out. We asked one of the professors for advice, and in his distinct German accent he said this:

It wasn’t really what we wanted to hear, but it was the truth. It worked. It’s probably the only best advice I’ve ever received from a lecturer.

If only I knew then that basic pharmacology would be nothing compared to Anaesthesia. It’s like advanced pharmacology.

I’ve been applying bum to chair and fared well… I just wish I’d started sooner. I’m still not certain that I’ll get through everything before the test.

    This can apply to most facets of life. I’ll have to remember this.

    1. I tend to forget this gem too often, too…

  2. Great advice. You can get through everything before the test I BELIEVE IN YOU! x

    1. Thank you soooo much! It always helps to get support πŸ™‚
      Oh, and: I managed to get through everything once this weekend. Having the Boy take care of food meant I could focus on studying. So for the first time in a LONG time I get to go through my work a second time… πŸ˜€

    I’m sure you’ll do fine. It’s okay to study with your bum out of the chair too πŸ™‚

    1. Heh, thanks for the reminder πŸ˜‰
      It was a productive study weekend, yay.
