Studying on Labor Day
That's right - it's a holiday that many people in the U.S. get off, but not med students. I guess it's good practice for when we're doctors someday, as hospitals don't exactly get to close, but still. Two quizzes tomorrow - one in Anatomy and one in Biochemistry. No clue how they're going to go. I've crammed so much knowledge into my head in the past week, it's impossible to know what they're going to pick for such a short quiz...
Luckily, I got a solid 8.5 hours of sleep last night, and the thermos in the above photo is stocked with home-roasted coffee goodness. I'll probably put in a solid 8-10 hours today before calling it quits. Already finished my Histology prelab (due Thursday at noon), and I plan on getting a jumpstart on the online Physiology homework set (also due Thursday) when it opens up tonight at 6pm.
This past weekend was a TON of fun. I rode the train from Grand Rapids to Holland on Saturday morning, then went back to bed there for 4.5 hours and woke up at 1:30pm. Apparently, I was carrying a significant sleep deficit. So, I studied till 8pm and took the rest of the night off to celebrate Wife's birthday! If you clicked on that link, you'll notice that Wife FINALLY has a new blog going! So, if you want to follow our lives at the same time, you should keep up with hers as well. It should be interesting as we attempt to live life somewhat separately for the next two semesters. I think her design and title, "Tiny Wife Big Life," are very cool. VERY cool. That might have something to do with me drawing up the design on my iPad... Maybe a little.
All right, time to get back to learning about things like accompanying veins (venae comitantes), arteriovenular anastomoses, diaphragmatic foramina, venous layers (tunica adventitia, media, and intima), and the like. Wish me luck on my first quizzes!
