Previously, on LOST...

I don't think I can refer to myself as House anymore. I cried during every single Flashback in the LOST finale, and was then inconsolable for a half hour after the show ended. There are still specific scenes that could make me lose it at the mere thought.

I'm such a little bitch.

A Lesson in PR

Remember when I was all excited because AAPA was using a quote from me in the latest edition of PA Professional? Well they did use the quote, but didn't mention the name of my blog. I think that's a pretty dick move.

I am one very, very lucky boy.

I comfortably got an A in Pharmacology and A- in Evidence Based Medicine.

By the skin of my teeth I got an A- in Clinical Medicine (89.97). And when I didn't think I had any skin on my teeth left I get another A- in Clinical Applications (89.60!!!).

I got a B+ in Lab Medicine, but whatever. The A in Pharm evens it out to an A- average. I'm doing so so so much better in grad school than undergrad. w00t!

Big Sky Country

I passed all my finals - most better than expected. Though I have to say I'm a little surprised at how many people have to remediate.

I'm off to Big Sky Country for the weekend . Catch you never!!

Finals Syndrome

For the past month or so I've gained about 8lbs. The funny thing is I've started regularly working out during this time and have maintained my (snack free) diet. I've especially been noticing the inner-tube around my gut getting larger. My reaction has been WTF?!?!!

I have also recently come down with a sore throat. I would generally attributed this to a post-nasal drip 2˚ to allergies. But I've been really good with my Zyrtec and have had barely a sniffle. Again, WTF?!?!?

I have my Medicine final tomorrow. I'm really worried. I failed the Infectious Disease test and didn't do that hot on OB/GYN. I dedicated a full day to each of those topics, which leaves me with one day for Cardio, Neph/Uro, Neuro and Endo. The saddest thing about this is that I don't even feel remotely comfortable with ID or OBGYN. I'm stressed.

So I'm sitting here studying Endo and it dawns on me. This past month I've had a test every week. 4 finals last week. A case study that I had to remediate TWICE, among numerous other assignments due at the end of the semester. I've been stressed. Stress leads to increase cortisol. Increased cortisol inhibits the immune system and stimulates lipogenesis, especially abdominally.

Maybe the Army is right for me...

Clearly DADT isn't keeping anyone out of the Army.
