This has been super intense couple of weeks. We’ve had an operative prep and restoration over the past two tuesdays, we also had a perio midterm on the 1st, a dentures quiz on the 7th, a cariology midterm on the 8th, a major organ system midterm on the 9th, and a pop quiz in crown and bridge on the 10th. So that makes only a monday where I didn’t have an assessment of some sort. Last weekend, I had my Aunt’s memorial and got to see lots of family. However, I had to make up the study time somewhere and ended up studying from 6:30-11:00 every night this past week, and then getting up at 6:15 to do it again. One of my classmates said, “you know you’re busy when you brush your teeth at night and your tooth brush is still wet when you wake up and brush in the morning.” It’s not super difficult, just super intense. I slept for 10 hours on saturday. Definitely my body catching up to the lack of sleep that occurred over the past couple of days. I’m still kinda bagged.
On another note, I’ve been the busiest I’ve ever been but still feel motivated to learn and to serve those around me. I decided to volunteer for two programs, Oral Health Total Health which is devoted to improving oral care access for those with disabilities/special needs and the other one is CAN u, which is a program that is bringing inner city youth to the Bannatyne Campus to experience post-secondary education. So I’m busy planning a wedding and facilitating these two events. It’s all good though and I’ve been enjoying it!
