I just finished my last exam. LAST EXAM. Barring the boards and any continuing education, I NEVER have to take another exam again. I was so excited last night, thinking about all the things I would be able to do today that I couldn't sleep! About a week ago as I was studying with Jessamyn, I realized that the end of this hellish lecture/exam schedule was almost here. It felt like one tiny milkweed seed at a time lifting off and taking flight, leaving me a bit lighter and relieved. As soon as the exam was over today, I had an absolute perma-grin on that I couldn't wipe off. Tonight is our 3rd year Kick-Off party....and I can't wait. I have people at home chanting "White Coat, White Coat" for me, hoping that I will be able to join my class next friday to go into the clinical rotation portion of my vet education. And for today? I am just so amazingly relieved and happy to be done. I feel more like myself than I have in a reeeaally long time.
