It’s been awhile since I last posted. A lot has changed since I first arrived. Grenada is a lot easier to adjust to than Saba. First off, there’s actually beaches in Grenada, and it’s hard to not be distracted when it’s right in my backyard! Secondly, there’s an actual grocery store with real food, not the canned and preserved stuff like at Saba. The amount of restaurants on this island is far more extensive (not saying crazy luxury though). I can’t wait until I actually have time to eat at restaurants other than the two that are walking distance from the dorms. I came here with all these plans to eat my way through Grenada, but I’ll have to postpone that for awhile since exams have been non-stop. Needless to say, I’ve been enjoying my time here. Maybe a little too much.
It’s been a busy semester so far. I’m currently taking 5 classes; Anatomy, Biochemistry, Psychology, Molecular Genetics and Physiology. Of all these classes, I find Physiology to be the most challenging, but then again, it has taught me how to work through tough subjects! Class starts at 8:30am 😦 I guess I can’t complain because I’m used to class at 8 in the morning. The one downside is taking the bus to school. On one hand, it’s nice to be isolated , but getting to school is such a struggle especially since the Professors don’t even take attendance. Surprisingly, I’ve been able to make about 95% of my lectures.
Oh right, I also lost my phone 2 weeks ago, so I don’t have all my pictures anymore. This just proves that medical students don’t just study 24 hours a day. There’s always a fun stuff happening at Bananas, and the school even hosts a couple of their own exciting events including Sandblast, which is just one huge, crazy beach party. Well off to study for round 3!
