my synapses are hurting...

yet another thrilling day in the life of a M1 student. today is wednesday (obviously) and it's wonderful because a) it's HUMP DAY! and b) NO GROSS LAB! and speaking of gross lab, yesterday was an uneventful exploration of the abdomen. clyde had a ginormous amount of fat and my group had a lovely time dissecting it all out. we think he had some sort of hernia surgery. it's kinda weird, whenever we find stitches or weird lumps or whatever, we get really excited, but that was probably really devastating to clyde when he was alive.

in histology today we have a fabulous professor professing to us. we're learning about muscles, and this guy is really enthusiastic about them. and he wears pink pants. he's not gay. he's cool! (note...not at all saying that being gay is not cool...) he just said that muscles are important in urination! awesome!

found out that one of my good friends is interviewing here next week, and that makes me happy. he probably won't come here, but eh, it will be fun to throw food at him at lunch.

my school is trying to enact a "dress code" on us students. it's kinda silly, but i can see the need to dress and act professional in a professional setting. we are going to school in a hospital, so we shouldn't look like hootchies in class. the administration wants ties, etc, and we're just like...umm...no. i honestly think that they're trying to do the dress code thing because a few chicas in our class dress like hootchies...i mean, if you've got the thoracic surface anatomy, by all means show it off, but not during class. that's kinda funky...who wants to pick up a fellow med student? everyone's neurotic. i've already heard of rumors of inter-med student hookups and breakups, and eh, i don't see the glamour in dating a fellow student. granted, they're ALWAYS THERE and you could study together, but the competition can get fierce (even though we're supposedly "non-competitive", or trying to be). i'm a big advocate of dating people with interests other than yours, and you could pretty much assume that everyone in the class is a drone of the other. sort of. maybe i'm wrong. BLEECH!

ooooh...fusiform cells are AMAZING.

i made some awesome chicken, rice, zucchini and squash last night. i ate much. and then i was full.

i'm going to see if i can get a hair cut today. as a med student, you almost never have time to do anything normal. well, at least at my school. classes are 8:00 - 4 or 5:00. that kinda sucks. and i think this weekend will be a free clinic volunteer day. that makes me kinda excited. and with that, i will end my ramble. chao!
