Feelings. I don’t know what to do with them, so I just set them on fire and throw them at people.
And guess what time it iiiiis? 2 weeks before finals! Engage XTREME HARD STUDY MODE. Hope to God I don’t flunk out of school or something terrible. Otherwise that will be too many feelings to handle. There is such thing as having too many Maltovs. So good luck to all y’all!
Lmao it reminds me of my professors in undergrad who have their pet molecule they focus on in their research and do nothing but talk about it and how important is could possibly be and how the results seem like they could be ground breaking.
And yet at the same time, just two hours ago in their lecture, they were going on about how complex everything is, and how just because one pathway was discovered, doesn’t mean another isn’t working on it and it doesn’t mean we have found all the millions of components that go into it.
You can’t help being excited and proud but you also feel deep down that the entire thing is sort of futile and insignificant. But I guess that is how things go.
And here y’all thought I have dropped biology by the wayside~
burrntup said: You are so wrong about ascendant signs and the rest!! This site is utter bullshit without them! How can you tell a Virgo to love an Aries? It's so wrong, love is love and astrology is based on soul, not compatability through the sun sign, you idiot!
You heard it here first, people. If you are a Virgo in a relationship with an Aries, please break up immediately. Get a divorce, if necessary. In fact, if you are a Virgo and you can so much as look at an Aries without breaking into violent fits of rage, there is probably something deeply wrong with you.
Whew. Glad we cleared that up on time.
Oh dang Helena, seems like I put you into fits of rage, and if not then you ain’t a real Virgo lmao
LMAO I am experiencing a foam inducing rage shit now, just talking to you. My soul is rejecting your presence *riiiiight now*. It is nothing personal, just so you know, the stars are willing me to do it.

In summary, your timeline is roughly: - Go to college - Take all required pre-reqs - Have some fucking fun for the love of god. Make at least 2 bad choices per year that will not go on your permanent record, seriously harm yourself or anyone else, and you will laugh about later. - Take the MCAT probably around the end of junior year, or after senior year if you are a super-senior like I was (no one cares) - Apply to med school on year before you want to start (aka- apply summer 2014, start med school fall 2015). You should have taken/scheduled your MCAT by now - Interview - Get accepted. Have a party. - Graduate undergrad - Have a fun summer. Seriously. Quit your job if you can. Sleep in all the time. Go on trips. Have mimosas at 9am on Wednesdays. - Start med school. Embark on the most terrifying, horrible, and marvelous journey.
NOTE: It is ok to take a year off between graduating and starting med school. IT IS OK TO DO THAT. DO YOU HEAR ME.
TAKE A YEAR OFF BETWEEN GRADUATING COLLEGE AND STARTING MED SCHOOL…
Yes. Please do. Give yourself the chance to grow as an individual. I actually took 2 years off, and I learned a lot about myself and some really hard life lessons before getting in. High school through college without any years in between is a whole lot of school and a whole lot of, “I need to do better than everyone else to get into where I want to be,” mentality. At least it was for me. Those extra years really took the edge off and helped me realize that life takes time and what sounds like a perfect plan to you, may not really be perfect FOR you. But that is what it is. A life lesson, a lesson you will only learn from experience. So goooooooood luck to all you premeds out there.
Because once you get in, it is going to be a ride through Hell on double time and it’ll jacked up, but for some reason it is enjoyable (so far anyway lol). So yeah. Have fun!
23 year old Sochi silver medalist Patrick Chan is both amazingly talented and adorable. (x)
LMAO no worries Patrick. I would have reacted the same way. I probably would have laughed for a good solid minute if it were me they were talking about. Who are we kidding, the interview would have just stopped there because I would be laughing too hard to continue.
Also, good job on winning silver man. That was a good performance. Especially with men’s free skate being rough for pretty much everyone. Falls, falls errywhurr.
Omg. Today’s dissection lab was a beast. Lower limb.
Did not finish dissection. Determined to finish it. Going back in there over weekend to finish. I don’t care if my group members decide not to come, I need to get this stuff at least somewhat down.
Also, now, whenever I look at my legs, I can imagine making incisions and de-skinning them to look at the superficial veins and nerves.
Even right now, I am sort of staring at the veins on my calves….I am pretty sure I can see almost the entire length of my great saphenous veins. It also bulges everytime I do Insanity workouts. But that was probably more than you needed to know.
So. Just finished the first exam block of the new semester. Gonna start pharmacology tomorrow, but I don’t feel like working on anything at 1300 am. So random thoughts for you as I struggle to prep for pharm this late.
1.) Did you know that when you sleep, your cerebrospinal fluid actually flows a lot as you sleep through these tiny microscopic channels that help clean out waste. Compare that to the very little movement when you are awake.
So now you have another excuse to go take a nap. You’re welcome. “MA! I’m NAPPING. Trying to clean my brain from seeing the neighbor naked.”
2.) Man, I am so grateful for the people I’ve met in my life. Just listening to a song reminded me of my piano teacher I had a child. I remember playing a piece and not actually following a note in a measure, because I thought it sounded right. I thought he was going to be mad, but he surprised me with something along the lines of, “AH. But why did you play that note? It sounded right didn’t it? Wasn’t what you expected. That’s called playing by ear.”
You betcha I bring up that memory every time I hear a melody that doesn’t go the way I expect. I keep hearing what a melody could have been, but then it doesn’t happen. It’s a lot of fun. He’s probably long gone now, but I’m glad I still remember a part of him.
And because I might as well, this was the song I was listening to:
