Today I received my official acceptance from Curtin Uni for a 2012-2013 exchange program, and I couldn't be more ecstatic.
I've been walking around today listening to this song, and just imagining that in 3 months today, I'll be in Perth; insane.
Anyways, I've got an insane amount of work in front of me in the next few days. I've got three of my toughest exams coming up (Cellular Biology, Biostatistics, and Research Methods in Health). They are all crammed into Friday, Saturday, and Monday, so I'm gonna have a lot of fun with this. In addition to these exams, I've also got two more coming up - they're dead easy though (anatomy and physiology come to me naturally for some strange reason...).
In terms of the exchange, I've got to get all the courses I would like to take approved in the next few weeks, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with that. I have to get them approved in two places (Curtin, and Brock). So far I have got Brock to approve some biochemistry courses for me, so it's a start.
I've also been sent into a bit of a panic, as my academic advisor said that I need to start worrying about my thesis (since I'll be gone for my third year). That means I have to find a professor to supervise me, find a topic, and basically prove to the professor that I'm not an idiot... I'll let you know how that goes.
I just need to keep reminding myself why I'm doing all of this - to be a coroner/medical examiner/doctor with specialization in aerospace medicine - hey, you gotta aim high.
