I woke up bright and early at the ripe ol’ time of 5:00 AM for no good reason. Yep, that’s right, me… the very same gal who can sleep until 1:00 PM, wake up for a couple hours, then go take a nap. It’s 6:22 AM, and I’ve already made coffee for the hubs and I, made him lunch, reorganized and decluttered the utensils drawer, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, and answered some emails. Anyone who knows my sleeping habits and my general disposition before noon would be absolutely shocked. I’ll say this though: I could totally dig this newfound energy!!!

I’m seriously so bummed. This morning was the organic chemistry final, and for the second time, I’m pretty sure I failed it. I am retaking organic chemistry because I got a C- last semester… and deciding to take it in the summer at Wash U in a 5 week course was maybe the craziest decision I ever made. It. Was. Horrible. I started out pretty strong this semester, but my motivation and energy waned pretty quickly… by the end of the 5 weeks, I was/am SO sick of this class. Today’s final was a massacre. The last page was extra credit - it asked what you thought would be on the exam that you didn’t see, what you wished you knew before taking the course, and what you learned from orgo. I was so worried about the questions that I had NO clue how to answer that I completely forgot to go back to get those 5 points. Who does that?! They were FIVE FREE POINTS, and I didn’t even get them. Omg. Pretty worried about my grade…
I’m also on a super low amount of sleep. I’m going to take the rest of today off, and start MCAT studying first thing tomorrow. I just need to learn how to process something, then move on. I don’t want the memories of today or of the first MCAT to cloud my performance on the next MCAT. I really hope I’m not doing all of this in vain. UGH.
