and another one bites the dust!

Wrote an embryology final exam today. Went pretty well! 2 finals down 7 to go plus 2 months classes plus 2 midterms plus 1 project...... its going to be a busy 7 week drive to the finish line! Its so hard to believe that in 7 weeks I will be done my first year. where does the time go!
Been hitting the gym trying to loose some of the weight gained by sitting on my behind all year studying. I have actually been able to run on a treadmill! This is amazing as I haven't been able to run without pain for 3 years. I had torsion of my left tibia (twisted about70 degrees between my knee and foot) growing up that caused me to walk turned out on that side and lead to countless popped kneecaps, dislocated knees, and other ouches. my horse was also not very appreciative of the constant left "leg on" signal. In grade 12 (3 years ago) doctors broke the tibia surgically and but my fut on straight and voila! no knee troubles! but it was quite painful to impact and due to hardware in there still it gets sore in cold weather, tendon rubbing, etc. I found to my delight that I could run without impact pain! the hardware gets sore at night but it does with any sort of activity,i just don't have the time to go get it taken out right now.
So YAY!! Have gotten up to 4 km on the treadmill and enjoy my half hour break after school to release some energy and stress! Gotta fit back into my cruel girl jeans for the summer!
I ambackto the books now..... the exams never end!
