It Just Got Real

13 Aug

We had so much information today, my head is spinning. I feel so totally overwhelmed, but one of my classmates helped me learned the first little bit of the pharmacology lecture, and now I feel much better about it. The professor’s sentences on his slides are just so cryptic I feel like I’m spending the whole time trying to decode what he means. And in pathology, the book is so long winded it nearly puts me to sleep! Just make your point and move on…but it’s Robbins…a classic, so I can’t dis Robbins. The pathology gods would smite me. In FoM2 (Fundamentals of Medicine 2AKA The Class Where We Actually Touch Patients, the professor went over the entire year with us…maybe just to overwhelm us. But, it sounds fun, we’ll get to do H&Ps on each other (History and Physicals) and then we’ll do it on professional patient actors, and then onto real patients at the hospital! The part that’s freaking me out is that we’ll actually do GYN/prostate/testicular/pelvic/rectal/etc exams on…real live peopleNOT our classmates or anything, but that’s gonna be quite the experience. However, we’ll start with histories, looking in the eyes, nose, ears, throat, etc. Much more mild and less…invasive of people’s personal space. I kinda got sick at school today and threw up. No bueno, but I made it to the bathroom, so it was ok. Now I’m exhausted, but I have more of Robbins to read, so I’m gonna do that.

The Most Interesting Kid in the World

18 Jan

My brother was the Phantom of the Opera in his school’s ballet!  🙂  My dad is even at work today! Surprised me, but I’m glad he feels well enough to do that.

My brother always has fun no matter what he’s doing. He’s the most interesting kid in the world…like those Dos Equis commercials. He scuba dives and does marine bio research, dances hip hop, modern, and ballet, he’s in sheriff explorers because he wants to be a cop after he does the Marines, he’s in some kind of drag racing group that his physics teacher runs, he trains these kids at the gym, and he trains dogs! I have no idea where he finds the time for all this. Probably because he never does homework lol. It’s crazy! I get tired just thinking about it.

My brother gets really passionate about things that interest him, so I’m not sure how, but he manages to make time. This usually involves reducing time spent on schoolwork, lol. Most of the dance stuff happens during school, though, since he’s at a school for the arts.
