Gratulerer med dagen! 🥳 Happy birthday! 🥳
Yesterday was the Norwegian constitution day, which means good food, spending time with people you love, and lots of champagne.
After a few hours, a few people went to the ANSA (association for Norwegians studying abroad) party, and Hege, Fredrik, Sarah, Vilde and I took the bus downtown and went to Iguana to eat dinner.
All in all it was a super fun day! I cannot say it enough how glad I am to have met the people I go to school with here, both Norwegian and from other countries. This was the first of hopefully many celebrations and days we'll spend together, and I'm super excited to make more memories ♥
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
I'm procrastinating, but I just wanted to take some time to update you on this semester's exam season. ♥ So far, I have had the histology 1 written exam and the histology 1 practical exam, two biomathematics midterms, learning techniques final assignment, animal welfare essay, animal welfare exam, three (!!!) botany midterms, and a chemistry exam. So far, I have failed 2 of the botany midterms (retake tomorrow which I'm procrastinating), and I'm waiting for my result in chemistry and animal welfare, but I have passed EVERYTHING else! And, that's only 2 fails out of 11, and I have a really good feeling about the other exams! 🤩 luckily there are no more midterms!
I'm so happy about the way things are going because I changed the way I study this semester 🥳 I'm trying my best to finish all my exams before june 12th, because then I get to travel on the 13th woohoo!
This is it, this is the last week of my first year as a veterinary student! How crazy is that?!
From visiting Budapest with my dad and my brothers...
...to officially becoming a veterinary student and making new friends
...to adopting Phoebe and watching her grow up
...to going on a ski trip to france with people from all over the world
...to picnics on margit island to de-stress after midterms
...to my first international day
...to the final exam season of this year
...and everything in between! ♥
I truly am so grateful for everything I've learned and experienced this year, and I'm so thankful for the people I've gotten to know. This university really is like one huge family! I know I never have to worry about being alone, or not understanding something, because my friends are always there to help me and support me; just like I'm always there to help and support them. We've made countless dinners together, given each other peptalks when we've needed it the most, argued, laughed, cried, had movie nights and surprise birthday parties, pancake sundays and taco tuesdays, sleepovers and all-nighters.
We're now 20% veterinarians and, I know I should be excited to go home for the summer, but I'm actually kind of sad that I won't get to see some of these people until september... We've all worked so hard, and I'm already excited to start 2nd year! ♥♥♥
It's May, and May means exam season. I've had a couple of exams/tests/midterms/whatever already this semester, and I'm just now realizing that I never even wrote about my first ever exam season! Well, this is a vet school blog, so why in the world would I not talk about exam season?
Maybe I avoided talking about it because it was horrendous? Hahha...
Okay, in all fairness... My exam stress was my own fault, but I'm doing A LOT better this exam season! I will tell you all about in the next few days (this exam season and the one from 1st semester), but I have an exam tomorrow so I have to study. ;)
Who am I?
Hi, I'm Ine! I'm 22 years old, from Norway, and I currently live in Budapest, Hungary, with my dogs, Baltus and Phoebe. I've wanted to become a veterinarian for as long as I can remember, and I'm currently a 2nd year vet student at UNIVET. I'll mainly be writing about my experience as a veterinary student in Budapest, but also about my day to day life and my experience of life in Budapest.
