|I have a very photogenic wife.|
Yesterday, after having taken Friday evening off, I felt kind of like Michael Scott from The Office. His boss had caught him watching a movie with all of his employees during work hours. Their conversation (as best I can remember it):
Boss: "How could you have possibly thought this was a good idea?!?"
Michael: "Um... Well, it increases productivity."
Boss: "Really. How?"
Michael: "Well, they work faster, after..."
Boss: "What, magically??"
Michael: "No, they have to. To make up for the time spent watching the movie."
So, yesterday I studied for 11.5 hours straight with only an 18 minute break to eat, making this awesome Excel workbook full of endocrinology tables on everything from organs/tissues, blood/lymph cells, hormones (oh the HORMONES), interaction between the hypothalamus and pituitary hormones, general classes of hormones, and insulin analogues. It's rather insane. If you're a med student (or ever hope to become one), I would recommend the table. It's not quite complete, as we weren't required to know everything about each specific hormone, but it's got a lot of information packed into it.
So yeah, now Wife and I are back at the Secchia center, studying away. I have Martin Luther King, Jr. day off tomorrow, which is what the exam isn't till Tuesday. However, I also have a ton left to do for Physiology, Microbiology/Immunology, and Epidemiology before I'll begin to feel marginally prepared. So I should really stop writing. But before I do, check out how I make perfect steamed vegetables in my microwave!
|1. Buy ~3 months of food from Aldi. $90 bucks.|
|2. Get microwave veggie steamer from store (Meijer?), put water in bottom, put in frozen green beans.|
Microwave 4 minutes.
|3. Add a little salt and pepper, then consume perfect green beans. Yum.|
