Oh man, two finals next week, plus a the culmination of an extracurricular project I’ve been working on for weeks.
Instead of dwelling on the time crunch, I figured I’d just combine a bunch of thoughts I’ve had today in a really disorganized and random fashion. (Lazy and yet, strangely efficient).
1. Med school and reality tv. You know how, on reality tv shows, the host will commonly make an announcement about some ridiculous and made-up challenge that all of the contestants have to meet? And it’s solely so everyone watching at home can be entertained by all of the drama and in-fighting that ensues?
That’s what it’s like when your med school asks your class to break into groups of 2 or 4 (but not 3!) for a clinical course that will last an entire year.
2. You know what would really suck? Being a pre-med from Alaska. No state school, and you have to shell out $1,000 every time you have an interview. It’s not like a regular interview season, where you’re just irritated about the cost – I come from a decently middle-class family, and that cost would be out of the question for me. I wouldn’t have been able to afford to interview until I was 30, by which point I personally probably wouldn’t have wanted to.
Man. Pre-meds from Alaska. I don’t know how they do it, but I know I respect it.
3. The internet is awesome. We’re learning about fungi tomorrow, and while pre-reading I realized that I actually know a fair amount about the subject material because of the comments made to this post.
I don’t know how people lived before the internet, but I imagine that it must’ve involved a lot more work.
