Yeah, I'm just bored

So I'm avoiding homework. I freely admit that. Though the problem with Vet school is that you don't really have homework. You just have to study. Meaning learning is completely self motivated. And after having lecture from 8-12, a pathology club meeting from 12-1, dissection lab from 1-4, and then ballet from 5-7, I don't really feel like doing anything. The sad part is that the minute I got home, I put a lean cusine in the microwave and sat down at my computer. While I'm eating I am studying pictures of a dissected dog on my computer screen, trying to memorize the muscles. Yes, I'm talking cut open, pinned back muscles with all the artieries and veins. And next to me on my desk are a dog scapula, humerus, ulna and radius. Real bones, from a real dog. I have the entire dog in the tool box next to my desk. The odd part is that I don't think its these things sitting around me while I eat that really bother me. Its the fact that if I just sat down to eat without something to study I would feel guilty for wasting time.
I guess I just feel a little ridiculous right now. I mean I've spent three hours today with a scalpula picking apart a dog's forelimb, and now I'm looking at pictures of it online. I really hope this is all worth it in the end.
