Last Piece of the Puzzle.....

I was happy when I got my Rotation Schedule, but I still couldn't relax fully because I was waiting to hear about my Seminar Topic. Over the course of the year of rotations, we have 3 separate Reflective Weeks (after 4 months of rotations) where we have various presentations and assignments due. At one of the three reflective weeks, each student has to give a 35 minute presentation and then answer questions for about 10 minutes. It's a big part of determining my grade for my final year of school.

Luckily I got assigned to present in the Reflective Week that I wanted, the 1st one, at the end of September. My topic I was assigned wasn't at the top of my list, but I was happy with it overall. I get to speak on Diabetes Insipidus. I don't know a lot about this topic, which is a bit nerve-racking, but I'm sure it will turn out okay.

This is one of the things I was most nervous about because I get very uncomfortable when I speak in front of people. So I will be very happy when this is over, and I can relax & enjoy my rotations.

**My blog has been pretty boring for the most part, but I don't really have much to talk about except for school & getting ready for my final year of pharmacy school. It's a huge part of my life, it takes a lot of my time & effort, and it is pretty much all I think about. Hopefully once I'm done with school I'll lead a little bit more of an exciting life!**

Done & Done.....

I am officially a P4 student as of an hour ago. I just finished my last final ever, and I couldn't be more excited! The only thing that can top how I feel right now is next year when I'm completely done.

It seems surreal that I am so close to the career I've wanted to have since I was a little girl. As excited as I am, it's a little weird to think that the life I've known for the past 6 years (waking up, going to class, doing homework, studying, and wanting to pull my hair out) is never going to happen again. I'm going to miss my friends that I've made, and it's bittersweet to know that I won't be seeing them every day anymore.

I snapped this picture my final day of classes, and I can definitely say that I won't miss listening to lectures every day.
I'm so blessed to have been accepted and survived this difficult program, and I can't wait to get to the final stage of my education so I can be finished with school for the rest of my life.
