Career Journal: Entry #2: Still Prepping for Anatomy
December 30, 2013
I received my textbook in the mail, and I purchased all of my school supplies. My boyfriend bought me some flashcards for Anatomy, and I also purchased a digital recorder to record lectures. I think I’m ready to battle this one out, if it’s anywhere near as terrible as folks have been telling me.
I started studying in advance, two weeks before classes, going through the material at a comfortable pace.
My boyfriend bought me a Kindle for Christmas, and I downloaded three Anatomy books that are entirely quizzes. I’ll be making good use of those as I progress through the material.
My office was really supportive of my academic endeavors and adjusted my schedule to give me Saturdays all the way free so I can devote time to recovery and studying. They also contacted the families of my weekday clients and requested a change of schedule so I could complete my appointments in the morning before school.
So far, so good! (But then again, I haven’t begun the class).
I hope to give myself a little bit of an edge before it begins.
