Beginning of Block 8b
So today is the first day of another block, and in true fashion, I skipped the lectures. 😀 It’s interesting reading my classmates’ Facebook and Google Talk status updates regarding how boring certain lectures are from the comfort of my home. Makes me glad that I only have to endure them for 2.5 less the time thanks to Enounce. 🙂
This block, we’re studying the pathology of the endocrine and genitourinary systems (with some gynecology thrown in there). It’ll be a block inundated with pathways, feedback mechanisms, and syndromes associated with hormonal excess and deficiencies. Should be another eye-opening journey into the wonder that is the human body.
I can’t believe it’s already November. Almost – done – with – basic – sciences! Clinics will have their own trials and tribulations, but I’m really looking forward to getting out of this mundane, day-to-day ritual of studying four lectures.
Also, tonight is Game 5 of the World Series. The Rangers are in need of a miracle to dig themselves out of a 3-1 hole, but Cliff Lee is pitching tonight! Hopefully he can keep things going.
Finally, I’ve been pretty involved in putting together 12 Days, a yearly tradition by the MS2s at BCM to celebrate the end of our basic science curriculum. I can’t go into details, but here is the trailer.
Let me know what you guys think of the trailer! 🙂
