FYI, it was yellow and gray day.
(through text during research presentations)
jenny: what happened to kathrina's shirt? blue? HAHA
me: she can take the picture.
but at least two very interesting lectures - death and dying in pediatrics and HIV/AIDS in epidemiology. now off to study my life away for fetal heart monitoring test tomorrow (which i’m missing my induction for Phi Kappa Phi for; well, that and Research extra credit)
"no right turn"
jenny: oh, i'm in the wrong lane.
kathrina: it's ok, you can just around.
jenny: i'm just going to go (turns right)
sian: ms. jennifer song! you're making me feel so rebellious, like an outlaw!
me: HAHA yeah! i feel like i have tattoos head to toe!
sian: we're fugitives!

if i wish you would have gotten anything out of my last post, it was that you shouldn’t compare yourself to anyone. i’ve almost destroyed myself trying to compare myself to other people and it’s just not worth it. it took me a while (and it’s still a process i’m going through) to get there but i hope you will soon. and another thing i’ve learned this week is...
absolutely! pencil me in for the summer!

what inspired the previous post.
summa cum laude: a deep and lenghty introspection
(i don’t expect anyone to read the entirety of this. i don’t really care either way. this was for me - for me to sort out my doubts and disappointments and the chaotic disarray that my mind has been in the past week. and i think this has helped, if anything to acknowledge these feelings.) (because i’m still on the mindset of the future and what’s propelling me there;...

but friday was pretty great. i was on labor and delivery for the first time this semester (when everyone else had already finished their rotation). i was worried that (just my luck, as usual), i would be the only one who wouldn’t see a delivery. but, my patient went into delivery as soon as we got into the room and the baby was out and crying in literally seven minutes. it was amazing. it...

and i just found the most amazing summer program at the Mayo Clinic. it’s just, the deadline has passed. i’m seriously SO SAD right now.
about to watch avatar after a long week.
it's days like this
that make me ask myself “what the hell am i doing? is the shit i’m going through worth it?“ (and, somedays, it seems like the answer is no)
a little something about infection control:
(after discussing the 5-second-rule)
kathrina: would you guys eat this? (vigorously rubs food on library table).
me: no, but you would.
kathrina: you're right (eats food).
Volunteers for Peace →
VFP is an international non-profit volunteer program that sends volunteers from around to globe to areas that can benefit the most from their help. I’m really excited to have found this. It seems to be the perfect, most affordable fit for what I am looking for in an international volunteer program.
god, jes, why am i so hillarious? its not fair to people with no personality.– 27JAN07, Vladimir Camarce (via margo-astoria)
beginning of the week note:
i’m sitting at peabody’s drinking an iced mocha and wating for: a.) karen to get out of lecture b.) kathrina to get out of clinical c.) cassie to bring me her nursing diagnosis book i am currently working on my postpartum paper and care plan and hope to have a majority of it finished today. and i’m debating on chipotle for lunch because i’ve been craving a steak...

04 OCTOBER 2007, part 2 (of insults to jes)
jes: what if i worked at hot dog on a stick and had to wear the goofy uniform?
alana: um dont you have to be a STICK to work there?

jes: i have to get my wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow.
bernie: ew, like there was any wisdom to begin with.
also, a little thing about race:
Anne is a coconut - white on the inside, brown on the outside. Jenny is a twinkie - white on the inside, yellow on the outside. Jenny’s BF is an egg - yellow on the inside, white on the outside. Sian is just tae - brown inside and out. (random note: Cassie wants to be a pineapple but Sian thinks she should be a mango because she has nice skin) (also, on animal personalities - I am an owl,...
Me: You'll enjoy this - some dumb B just asked if whooping cough is the same as CROUP. Pulmonary NP needed for education STAT!
Sian: That dumb bitch! What room number? I'll be there and give the whole class a lecture!
"i am placing her on pelvic rest"
today was a great end to an otherwise lackluster week. even though my day started when i woke up at 10:45 and literally jumped out of bed to make it to my 11:20 lecture on time, it got progressively better. i don’t think i got anything out of today’s research and peds lecture because i pretty much spent the class period on facebook (with kathrina trying to convince me to turn my...

some days are better than others.
(today just wasn’t one of them)
we ♥ glee
me: i loved that song!
shelby: vladimir, i wish i was friends with them.
me: haha i know i'm so jealous of their lives.
shelby: me too... i'd take a slushy in my face any day to be them.
OB test was a success!
to make up for my last pediatrics exam which i was not very proud of. now, i just have tomorrow’s simulation lab for peds, midterm #2 for public health, and thursday’s epidemiology quiz and i’ll be home free for the weekend.
it's 6:15 a.m.
and i have exactly 8 hours before my OB exam. (i need coffee)
the thing is,
i don’t need to see the world. if i had the choice between seeing the world and spending my entire life in some small town with you there with me, well, screw paris and london and italy and sydney and africa and santorini and every other fucking place on the map.
