Both myself and my housemate have spent the day revising in the Medical School - so much content has appeared in the first week that I'm genuinely concerned. This has been the first point so far where I had a very real glimmer of self-doubt. That's not meant to sound as self-aggrandising as it does. What I really mean to say is that having done a molecular biology degree, anatomy aside, the concepts have been quite familiar and not intellectually enormously challenging. Again, (feeling clumsy now), not that the content is 'easy' per se, but it has felt doable given sufficient time input. The real difference here is that there is so much 'new' content and concepts is that it can (and does) seem like a bit of an anathema.
So today has been a mix of making a start on this week's anatomy pages and going back through Block 1 lectures, putting them into Anki. On that particular end of things, it's almost impressive how much of the detail you forget without reviewing the material. Which, I suppose, is where Anki is supposed to come into play.
Picked up Spotify Premium today (£4.99 a month on the student deal), primarily because it allows me to save local (albeit encrypted) files, and stream in high quality. I recently upgraded to some Bose headphones over the holidays and they're not the kindest to low-resolution files, which was I was currently rocking (pun very much intended). Anyway, between access to their enormous library in high quality (and the Extreme quality local file setting) it's been a very enjoyable afternoon and evening from a sonic perspective.
