It's a love-hate relationship with HSPH.. i love the 3-week semi-holiday mode, but at the same time it's made me into a super lazy bum.. i feel no urge what-so-ever to do anything!! I could have used this time more efficiently.. but nope i've baked cakes, slept a LOT, caught up on tv, saw some friends and then ate some more cake..
I can see how the lectures could be interesting, but it's just a module so untimely placed.. would have been better right at the start of the new year, or before Christmas... as now with one week left. i've literally just acquired the skills to critique a paper with a bunch of annoying stats., and have until friday to whip up a critique!
(weird as it sounds.. i've actually learnt more on how to critique a paper, and use stats through HSPH on my MBBS course now, than all 3 years of my BSc put together!)
Locomotor starts on Monday....
(this mean 4 weeks of Anatomy with an Easter holiday in the middle! >.<)
Anatomy has always been my weak point..
.....this is rather embarressing, but the other day my head went completely blank and i couldn't remember which side of my arm my radius and ulnar was on. In hindsight, im such an idiot, as i always used to remember where i would take the radial pulse, and that would be the side where my radius sat.. but i don't know what happened.. i really couldn't remember at the time! Just so happens, like it does, the module lead was passing by whilst i was telling my friend.. and she comments:
"Tofu, i really don't know how you managed to get a merit last year!" haha.. okay that sounds harsh... but really she said it as a joke, and shes by far one of the friendliest lecturers out there! But i do worry myself sometimes.. as i know i really should put some more time into my anatomy... okay.. time to get Gray's out the library!
65 days till End of Year EXAMS! --- EEKS! Ok in days and months, thats over 2 months... but i like to see the number in days.. it sort of adds to the stress factor, and should hopefully kick me into revision mode soon enough (well i sure hope it does!! only 65 days left!!)
Update on the pizza... im happy i did well in my last ica, 81% average yay, but..i lost out on the pizza by 0.5%... but then again my friend still owes my 397/400 meals from last year.. so i don't have to worry about buying the pizza just yet ^.^hahaha... we sound competitive.. but we really aren't!! we just like having excuses to eat out and celebrate random things!! in fact today we're going to the have a pub lunch and watch the cricket world cup ...
...................................... i can't choose between the two teams.. as i'm not from either country, and my closest friends at uni are from both... it's like choosing to side with mummy or daddy!
