Round 3 exams are over! Only a couple more weeks until I’m back home in California! It’s been a nice time here in Grenada so far, but nothing beats California life. Round 3 exams went well. I can’t tell if I’m getting used to the workload or if classes actually got easier. What sucks is that I missed a whole week of classes to take my exams so now I’m stuck with Sonicing everything. For those of you that don’t know, Sonic Foundry is our school’s database of recorded lectures. This makes life insanely easier especially when you oversleep……. So far, only a couple of students have left the program, but everyone seems to be working hard especially in preparation for finals. There’s only 4 more weeks left on the beautiful island of Grenada. Hopefully I will be back next semester, and have way more time to explore the island.
Classes have gotten more interesting since midterms finished. In anatomy, we no longer have to memorize a whole bunch if muscles! Instead we have cranial nerves…. Also, we no longer have to take Learning Strategies after midterms so that saves even more time for studying! One of the best things about SGU is that I feel like students have a nice balance between school work and free time. For me, I find that it’s nice to take Fridays off to enjoy some dinner with friends and start up work again on the weekend with a fresh mind. Yesterday, there was a student sponsored event called “The Fort Party”. The event took place at the historical Fort Matthew which was a battle ground and asylum. The fort was filled with crazy tunnels and dungeons. Overall, the fort was pretty creepy at night, but the view was definitely spectacular. Wear a sturdy pair of shoes if you plan on going.
Now that the semester is almost over, I’m trying to think about what I will bring to next semester. The quote that has stuck in my mind all semester is
“insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”- Albert Einstein
Well, with that in mind, thanks for reading! Here are some quick pictures to end my post
