My last post on not studying probably came across a bit flippantly. While I do enjoy writing, I'm no professional and I freely admit that sometimes concepts and writing ideas fall flat or just plain fail. Despite my grumblings and shall we say, less than ideal study habits, I am actually right where I need to be in life. It's a process and I'm trying to find the right path for me. And despite my limitations, apparently, I'm not a complete idiot. For the gross anatomy final, we took a national board style exam. We just got the scores back and while I was a couple of points below the class average (damned overachievers), I'm in the top 75th percentile nationally. Normally, on a standardized test, that'd be bad for me. But considering the competition at this level, that ain't bad, especially given I am severely impaired when it comes to spatial relationships which is what anatomy is all about (seriously, I can get lost in a closet). On biochem last year, I was in top 99% nationally. I put those together and start to think that maybe, just maybe it's possible that I can do well on the board exams.
