Ok so today has been another relatively lazy day (aka I slept until 8 instead of the usual 7) and had a leisurely brekfast. Its been full of revision and also trying to spend a few hours brushing up on Chemistry (aka teaching myself). Unfortunately I did not study Chemistry as a A-Level and after Genetics realise just how deeply intwined it is into everything so am trying to work through it myself.
In terms of anatomy I now know the different parts of the Scapula, and am starting to learn the differences between the species. I really do think I need my own set of bones to do this properly so have spent some time reasearching and hopefully have found someone that can supply me a dog skeleton relatively cheaply. The problem in terms of diagrams not being that useful is that I have to learn the muscle attachment points, which on many bones are just rough areas. Trying to learn and memorise the position of these without being able to feel them is next to impossible and I think I will spend most of Tuesday and Wednesday evening in anatomy self-study where I can use the bones.
In other news I was asked to get involved doing some writting for a new project today which I am pretty excited about. I am still a long way from my goal of £40,000 and am slightly concerned at how I will be able to cover next semesters tuition. I am focusing on trying to find as many monthly sponsors as I can now as this way even though it may be more work now I do not have to worry so much about how I am going be able to afford to stay here.
If you enjoy reading my diary and if you can help (even with just £1 a month) please do as it will make the world of difference to me! You can set it up automatically each month on the right of this page with a Paypal subscription. As a monthly sponsor you will get a special sponsors only newsletter, as well as invitations to come visit and hopefully some supporters events when I am back in the UK. If you are a business I also am able to offer you advertising as part of a sponsorship detail so please contact me.Posted in categories: Vet School Diary
