So it happened. Actually, a lot happened. Three very special people in my life passed away.
And I feel like Cinderella, but the raggedy ratchet version in a pumpkin. I haven't felt good all day and currently I am studying to make up for some lost time that I spent feeling sorry for my tummy. However, it isn't all that bad, sometimes...I actually like this trimester, CMBM is very interesting, all about drugs and genetics, but it is SO OVERWHELMING. There is so much to know. I just want to get my nails done and my highlights touched up but that's not happening anytime soon, a test is a week and a half away.
We do have parties after our exams, which is fun, and this one is on my birthday... I will keep you updated on that one. Usually for my birthday I get a new sparkle dress and get my hair all done and get to be the real Cinderella...I have a feeling this year will be slightly different...
I miss my blonde hair and my fake nails and my not-give-a-damn.
Example of a medical school exam question:
Blah blah blah, blah blah blah, then which of the following is true?
A. Something you clearly recognize and know to be true
B. Something you clearly recognize and know to be true and something you recognize but are not quite sure is true
C. Something you clearly recognize and know to be true, something you recognize but are not quite sure is true, and something you have never heard of before but could possibly be true because you have no idea
D. Something that makes you completely rethink if the "something you clearly recognize and know to be true" is actually true
That is all for this post...too much frustration to write anything else...
It's just one of those mornings in med school where you don't want to do ANYTHING. I leave for Disney tomorrow AM and that's all that is on my brain. I hate the thought of studying when I get back, or even worrying while I'm away, but I guess it comes with the territory. This week is the beginning of my new trimester so it's basically introductory courses (which means regular classes on steroids), but it's not too bad considering I'm good at genetics. I just want my dunkin donuts bagel and iced tea and to eat it in bed while watching some stupid hospital show. WAH.
My whole life I've wanted to be a doctor. A very cliche and overused phrase on med school applications, but for me it was true. I started this blog topic to deal with my anxiety (med school related) and a place to vent when things get hard. I used my brain all day, so this is not a place for spelling, grammar, or even political correctness.
