I have started my second year of medical school!! I can barely believe that we are already in our second year. It makes me so happy. The previous year went by really fast. I have a lot of energy and I am really excited to continue with this education! A lot of things are happening this year.
We are currently studying the basics of preclinical studies. The module involves Biochemistry, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Pathological anatomy and Pathological physiology. So far, there is a lot of material to cover. But another difference this year is that I will be taking two courses in the Lithuanian language, both regular and professional Lithuanian. :)
I am a mentor as well, and I have been trying to engage as much as possible in activities hosted by the university. I am just happy to be a part of all this. I will also be more involved in the Swedish organization called SLF this year.
Since I got here, I have been cooking a lot, studied in coffee shops, meeting friends for dinner, going out for drinks, picnics, kareoke nights, a movie night. In Kaunas, I am never bored, that's for sure haha. I have forgotten the pace of my life here haha. I could never have expected that it would turn out this well.
I have two classes with laboratory work today, I will study a lot in between. In the evening, there is a pub crawl event. If I finish all the material, I will attend!
I hope that everyone is doing well in school, work or university.
Until next time, good luck with what you are doing!
