Funny Things

Two funny things I thought of/said today

Expiration can mean exhaling, but it is also a term used to say someone has passed away.
I'm working on a review for class, and the questions is what causes splitting of S2 (a heart sound) and what makes it go away. Inspiration causes it, and expiration makes it go away. HAHAHAH of course expiration makes it go away because if you're dead you have no heart beat!

Also, I discussed beatin' the hell outta t.u. with my dad and I said that if my future children went to t.u., I would be sad but I could live with it. But if my kids went to tortilla tech I'd wonder where I went wrong raising them and I questions if they could even be mine. So we came up with this.....

If my kid went to t.u. I'd be upset, but if my kid went to tech I'd get a DNA test.

AHHHH funnyness

Aggies: 38
t.u.: 30

Not as easy to inset into casual conversation as 12-7 ("Hey what time is it?" "Oh... about 12 to 7" "Hey, what time is the movie?" "It starts at about 6:48, you know, 12 to 7." "What time do you want to meet for dinner?" "hmmm its 6:30 now, so lets meed at about 12 to 7"), but we'll deal :) I'll just relate the score to baking.

"how long do I need to put the cookies in for?" "hmmm, 38 to 30 minutes should do the trick!"

"Beat eggs for 38 to 30 seconds at a time"

"How many strawberies in the pie?" "oh I'm not sure, something like 38 to 30"

"How many inches of rain have you gotten in Houston today?" "about 30 to 38 inches" (well it feels like it has rained that much today!)

So WHOOP Aggies!!! We BTHO t.u.!

And Fran is gone! Double WHOOP!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

YAY Thanksgiving! Here is a quick rundown of things I'm thankful for (funny and serious) (and in no particular order)

  • Lotion Kleenex
  • Family (they're really there for you when you most need them!)
  • Amazing medical school friends
  • Incredible tank mates (and a great body!)
  • The willed body donor that has given me an incredible introduction to the human body
  • My wonderful boyfriend
  • Sunday night home cooked dinner at my aunt and uncle's
  • Good pens
  • baking
  • Amazing friends
  • Aggieland (I never thought I'd miss it so much!)
And that's all I can think of now. I'm really grateful for all of the amazing things, events, and people in my life. Thank you all for putting up with me

When does it feel real?

So I still surf around SDN because I am curious how med school interview process goes for the future generations (or something like that). Now that November 15th is approaching (the first day for pre-match offers), I think it is so neat how excited everyone is that their life could really change with one email. And people seem to really talk like their life is going to change forever. And believe me, it does change, but what I want to know is, when am I really going to feel like I'm going to be a doctor?

Every day pretty much I can hardly believe I'm in REAL medical school. I guess some of it is because I didn't take time off (and I'm glad I didn't), but every once in a while I go holy cow, I'm really going to be a doctor. A real doctor. A doctor that sees real patients. Human patients. Is there a point when I'm actually going to feel like a doctor though? Or at least like I'm really becoming a doctor. (it is WAY to early to feel the slightest bit competent). I guess it is just one of those gradual transitions where one day I'll go, hmmm guess I'm becoming a real doctor.

Maybe its time I go do some shadowing. I think I'll need to go over my ICM stuff so I might have a clue as to how I should interact with patients......that will have to wait until Thanksgiving.

I love giving tours to the interviewees. It really is a lot of fun. My biggest worry is being so excited about school that I scare them away. But I really do love being at UT-H. Even if I am constantly harassed that now I'm a tea-sip errrr... longhorn (for the record, I'm not. I'll always be an Aggie. WHOOP!) And giving the tours gives me the availability to go see the cool things on the tour, like the helipad and heart surgery. YAY cool surgeries (though I am sorry that anyone is ever in the position to have to have the surgery. But since they need it, I may as well watch it).

And here is the cool pic I took during the tour (it was the first time I've seen the life flight helicopter!). And if you're reading thing and you're gonna interview at UT Houston, let me know and I'll try to give your tour!
