--at least until Wednesday, when I find out how many papers I've failed and kiss my summer goodbye so I can study for the resits.
In the meantime, I'm still sitting around in a state of semi-numbness. The exams are over. I slept 3 hours a night all of last week, and at the end of it all we emerged from the exam hall looking like this:
Second-year medicine is widely reputed to be the toughest year in all Cambridge. Maybe not the toughest course (to get a First Class in Maths you have to prove Fermat's Last Theorem or revive Schrodinger's Cat or something insane like that) but definitely the toughest year. And it's HELL going into it unprepared, especially when it drags on for six days of the week, and you happen to be a lazy bum who's spent more time during the year blogging than doing any actual revision and have to stay up revising till it's bright outside and passing birds laugh at you for having to stay up cramming so late.
I've written two entries on Medscape, including one on the ever-interesting subject of Post-Exam Personalities. You know, the weird social hierarchy that you see when you come out of the exam hall: in one corner you'll have the Nerds and the Hypertalkers laughing about how easy it was and how they BLATANTLY scored the bonus half-mark by quoting the alternative name for the radial groove, in another corner you have the Pedants beating their hands against the wall in agony at forgetting to write down the trade names, old names and early names for frusemide and ciprofloxacin, then you have the larger crowd of Sane Medics who're just glad that it's over, and of course in the distance you can just see the quickly receding silhouettes of the underprepared Lazy-Ass Slackers through the dust clouds they kick up as they rush back to start cramming for the next exam (yours truly is, unfortunately, in this category).
What kind of post-exam person are you? Do pop over and leave a comment. In the meantime, I'm sitting here contemplating another crucial life-and-death balance-of-universe-affecting question:
Grey's Anatomy, House and Scrubs have all ended for the summer.
WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO?!
