Reflections

I’ve finished my first semester of vet school, and I feel like orientation was just yesterday! I can’t believe how quickly the past four months flew by. I’ve learned all about microscopic anatomy of animals (aka: histology), different types of parasites and the diseases they can cause, how to correctly apply a “kitty burrito“, the differences between dog and cat anatomy, and some of the basic principles of One Health. Outside of the classroom, I was elected as the Student Government Association Information Services (IS) Representative, built a website for SGA, elected as Wet Lab Coordinator for our Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (SCAAEP), and Events Coordinator for our chapter of Christian Veterinary Fellowship (CVF).

I’ll be talking about three different apps: two to help me study and stay organized, and one to help me chill out. I use paper planners (see E-Learning is Excellent), but sometimes I still need that extra reminder of “Hey! You have something due tomorrow!” because I have a lot going on.
