International Veterinary Seminar in the Czech Republic

International Veterinary Seminar in the Czech Republic

I’m sitting here in my PJ’s, sick as a dog, trying to publish this blog post that should have gone up yesterday. If I’m being completely honest, I’m still a bit tired from last weekend. However, the entire journey was well worth it!

Good times at the practice clinic

Good times at the practice clinic

I should go to the practice clinic far more often. Not only was today’s session very informative, but also very enjoyable! When we managed to find a blood vessel, and place the peripheral venous line properly, we literally cheered for each other...

Brainstorming by the kitchen table

I’m currently sat by my kitchen table thinking, that instead of planning the upcoming week, I should just go ahead and plan the entire semester. Some would say I’m getting ahead of myself, but truth be told, I’m having a bit of a content drought, and I thought this might be interesting to some of you.

The Metrics of Anatomy and Physiology

The Metrics of Anatomy and Physiology

I thought I’d do a revised edition of one of my most popular blog posts of last year, namely “The Metrics of Vet School”. Almost a year later, I felt there was a need for an updated, more accurate version. So today, I’m going to take you through an average day of studying Anatomy and Physiology in vet school, and how many hours I spend on an ideal day. It’s worth noting that not all days are like this, and today the stars aligned just perfectly for me to have a bit of extra time to read.

The combination of House of Cards being back and exam season creeping up on me has left me with about fifteen minutes to blog today. Therefore, I thought I’d just include a few pictures from today’s dissection, as well as what I’ve been up to after I got home from today’s lectures...

Hematopoietic tissues, lymph nodes, and the final week of dissections

Today I find myself with the rare pleasure of having the entire morning to myself. I’ve been drinking tea, I’ve met up with my sister, I’ve called my grandmother, and it’s only half past nine in the morning. As of writing this I’ve been...

Welcome to Vetworld!

Welcome to Vetworld!

As you may have noticed, I've only been blogging about once a week as of late.The reason why, in addition to there being a ton of things we need to get done before the end of the semester, is a project we’ve been working on. I can’t get into too much detail, as this is a school tradition, and needs to be kept a secret...

Drawing blood and discussing work habits

Drawing blood and discussing work habits

You’ll have to excuse the irregular blogging schedule lately. Wednesday I decided not to blog since I was in such a good flow working on my dissection preparations, and yesterday, I accidentally fell asleep before I had time to blog. And although having a 10 hour...

Holiday daze

Holiday daze

Since I’ve been in a sort of holiday daze since Easter vacation, I haven’t been able to do as much studying as I’ve wanted to recently. Lately, work has been kind of piling up on me, with daily labs, dissections, lectures, and I’m sitting there like...
