I Rock!

I swear I don't have a big head, but I totally rock! Ha Ha! Anyway, I got my test back that I took last week...102%, yay! I was apparently having a good guessing day because there were several multiple choice questions that I guessed on, but I ended up getting them all correct.

Starting now I'm on extreme muscle memorization mode; I have a muscle practical next wednesday. The muscles are turing out to be much harder to memorize than the bones. Their names are crazy ridiculous!!! For example, corrugator supercilii, extensor pollicis longus, & levator labii superioris just to name a few. How are you supposed to remember that?! I guess that's what flashcards & coloring books are for. In addition to knowing the names, I have to know each muscles origin(s) & insertion, and what action/movement the muscle facilitates. AHHH! I better get to work! :)

Bones Practical!

So I've been furiously studying my bones & bone markings for the past week; I had serious doubts about my ability to memorize that much information all at once. However all my hard work paid off, and I totally aced my bones practical! There was not one answer I even questioned, so that is a major relief. Too bad I can't relax! I've got my regular test, covering bones, muscles, and nerves, tomorrow, and I'm freaking out...again! I spent so much time memorizing bone stuff that I have yet to study any of the physiological stuff. EEK! Cram session starts now!
