spring break update

this spring break has been an interesting one so far...H and i went camping in florida (fort pickens) for a night and had a ton of fun. it was a 5 mile bike ride and trudge through sand to get there and back, which amounted to a lot of back pain and good cardio workout. the landscape was so beautiful and the fort was pretty cool too. highly recommend it, but just remember to bring insect repellent...i am the proud owner of ~50 mosquito bites and they all appropriately itch like hell. and these mosquitoes were HUGE, like the fattest mosquitoes i or H had ever seen. also, another tip...you CAN get sunburned even when it's just cloudy. you'd think a former lifeguard would have remembered that, but no. i looked like a lobster yesterday, and yes, the sunburn appropriately hurts as well. so, that's a winning combination...the bites itch, so i scratch, oooh it burns, stop scratching, bites continue to itch, burn continues to burn, it never ends...

today was my last review for the upcoming monday neuroanatomy test. i'm kind of scared of it, mostly because of the heinous reputation the course has for being difficult. but i have a couple of good days to study for it, so it shouldn't be too bad.

also, i have decided that i'm going to embrace the half-korean side of me and i will be making bulgogi today. i just went to an asian market store and bought some kimchi and pickled yellow radish and dried squid. yum!!! this summer, i'm going to cook a lot of korean food and will be updating my food blog as it all unfolds. i also want to tackle cooking more vegetarian dishes, namely dishes that incorporate tofu or other obscure ingredients...

also also, i would be happy to interview ANYONE who would like to be interviewed...learning about folks is always fun!

HI :)
I stumbled onto your blog, while searching for blogs by medical students. Its really interesting and I hope you dont mind if i follow your journey. I just started working on a BS and will eventually be applying to medical school, so your blog helps to keep my eye on the prize, so to speak!

Happy spring break!
