For the first time in my life, I got to hold and help treat a red tailed hawk. Although I have no aspirations of ever working with wildlife, it was more exciting than I thought it would be. How often in daily life do you get to look straight in the eye of a bird that has the potential to rip your face off? She had pins placed in her left wing due to ulnar and radial fractures as a result of gunshot wounds. Yes, apparently someone shot her multiple times - ridiculous.
Our epidemiology exam is coming up in an hour. Apparently she doesn't believe in exams... so we get an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper (both sides) for notes. Mine is printed out in size 7 font and I wrote down everything she said we needed to know. It is color coded and bold and beautiful. At times like this I'm glad I am slightly OCD about organizing things. But the really scary thing is, I failed to actually study and am depending on my beautiful notes page. We'll see how this turns out.
