February has been a great month. I didn't get the chance to volunteer this month, but I really got to get out into New Orleans and experience my first Mardi Gras.
School has been in full force for February. At the beginning of the month we had our exams for the Psychology Block and we ended the month with the Endocrine/Reproductive Block exams. The psychology block has been one of my favorites of the year so far because I really enjoyed the complexity of it and all the drugs that are involved in psychiatric care.
March is going to be an interesting month as well. Our Basic Principles of Pharmacology class is over as well as Medical Pharmacology. Our schedule has gotten lighter, but our Shelf Exam for Medical Pharmacology is coming up and I've already made 400 note cards (and counting) for it. I am nervous for it, but I think my copious amounts of note cards will help.
These past two weeks have been full of my first Mardi Gras festivities. I love how this city treats Mardi Gras as a bigger deal than Christmas. Watching the parades and having my best friend visit from home has been an incredible experience, surely one I will always remember -- thanks to the hundreds of throws that now inhabit my apartment. Until next time: peace, love, and Mardi
