On top of studying for the DAT ( which is in less than 2 weeks!) I have to finish up my online Psychology class. I read this quote earlier today in my book and it made me realize a few things.
1. I procrastinate. A LOT!
2. I have no clue where I'm going to be living for the next 5+ years. That's a little scary.
3. I wish that I could go back and repeat college over again and actually study. I have a studying pattern that goes a little something like this: don't study at all until like the day before the test. This worked, I got good grades (O-chem excluded) and I remember most of what I learned in my 3 years of undergrad, but I don't feel that I truly KNOW somethings. I can draw the citric acid cycle, explain the laws of thermodynamics and do Hardy-Weinberg problems all day long, but I still don't feel like these things are embedded in my brain. I'm feeling like I should have read EVERY textbook and studied every day after class. I guess I'm just freaking out a little about taking the DAT, but it's a big deal! So, my advice to anybody just starting school is to STUDY!!!!! Forget about a social life and commit yourself. Or, this could just be me giving myself advice for what my life will be in dental school. haha. Either way, I think that I need to kick things up a notch in the studying department. (I have friends who can vouch for this!) I made myself a studying schedule for the next 2 weeks and I intend to stick to it. I just wish that I could time travel and be in the future with the DAT in my rearview mirror.
