Man, I wonder how unique our school is for having spring break? I didn’t really think that would be a de-anonymizer, but from the comments, it looks like most med schools scoff at the idea. I feel so over-privileged!
Speaking of over-privileged, I was talking to a friend who’s spending his spring break in Europe (I KNOW), and right before he left he told me that the main thing he learned in micro?
Was that it was actually possible for him to look at pictures of syphilitic chancres without reflexively crossing his legs.
He just, you know, had to spend 4 weeks getting bombarded by unexpected STD pictures every few days during lecture. That’s all it took.
I might draw a few more “Micro: Before & After” pictures this week, because otherwise I’d have no excuse to draw (and I ask you, if you can’t spend spring break drawing silly pictures instead of doing something productive, when can you?).
How did blatant knowledge about the microorganisms lurking under every crevice change your life?
