There is nothing more depressing than day 1 menstrual cramps without ibuprofen, offering advice to friends and got ignored/trumped by other advice, have concerns but no one to share with, and behind on 2 papers writing while also swamped with EC.
fuck the world.
"Thank you! You are a doll!" -> to me at the nursing station, in front of my preceptor, and doctors/nurses. BOOYA BITCHES
and two “thank you”s later when i was already bundled up in winter-attire walking alongside my ER med student buddy Jane. BOOYA I AM SO PROUD
As the shittiest month of the shittiest year continues, rejection received.
No worries. Just a tad bit upset but feeling much better already. For some reason both MCAT and CRNE(NCLEX) will be going through transformations next year. I can only choose one, and obviously I”m going to write my CRNE before it turns into the 2015 version of NCLEX.
You can’t have it all, so looks like i’ll have to be writing the 2015 version of MCAT instead.
Someone got 12 rejections from mac in the past 12 yrs. I think I can take a couple more.
Some people are bitching about CASPer and VR on the Mac thread on premed101…..sigh, seriously people, don’t be a sore loser. Show some class.
Cheers to many more rejections to come! :)
impossible to communicate with parents.
After 2856 entries it is impossible for me to abandon my tumblr at this point. However my visits have been infrequent, evidently.
So far, 2014 has given me nothing but problems. Apart from the frozen house which unfroze and then froze up again as the worst winter hits this province, i have yet to start job searching. Also, I am anticipating yet another rejection letter some time in the next 2 weeks.
Yesterday I finally got the first piece of good news. I went to Alumni Association to ask for funding for the Belize trip. This has been planned since Fall of 2011. My presentation as usual was impressive (no powerpoint allowed, plain talking). I got $2880 for our group. To date, I have single-handedly gotten us $2880+$1000+$2430= $6310. That is more than 50% of our total fundraiser profits. I am very proud of what I started, and finished. I almost wanted to quit in 2012 because I was so stressed out with school and life and i didn’t know if I can do this on my own when my partner had cancer and had to quit. I’m so happy I didn’t quit. It’s finally coming together.
One month from now, I will take my trip to Belize. FINALLY. I have not been on an international trip for…the longest time in my life actually (8 yrs). Before then I had always been on a plane at least every 3 yrs..
Now I am really ready for the rejection letter from Mac.
2014 is not going to be an easy year. It’ll probably be the toughest year as I transition in every aspect of my life. I guess I’ll just keep going.
Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.
Your attitudes towards economics appear capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.
To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a uncompromising idealist with several strong convictions.
I was walking towards the train station when I stopped to take Homer Simpson (plush doll)’s photo as usual at the furniture store. This lady drove by and stopped her car and asked if I’m going to the train station because I was dragging my suitcase (which is not even heavy b/c i didn’t put much in it..)
I thought she was heading there too so I said yes and she said I can give you a ride. She looked nice and has this chinese accent (OR other asian accents). I hopped in and turns out she was heading to work not the train station so she is actually somewhat going out of her way to drop me off.
I was very grateful. I kept my phone close and also she kept the window all the way down, so if she was a “bad person” I could have easily screamed and called someone.
Normally I don’t get into strangers’ cars…..but…anyway she made my day.
Later I passed on the good deed by helping this gentleman on the train with his QR code. He used IE and his email from ViaRail wasn’t displaying the QR code. The train conductor didn’t know what to do. I used Chrome (thank god he had it) and made him log onto his hotmail with Chrome. It opened perfectly..I then educated him by saying “IE is a very shitty browser, use chrome.”
I said the word shitty.
Overall: 8/10 day. A-!
Hard to believe how fast this 6 weeks has been.
good news though, i’d still be in ER for winter GEM placement! Yay geriatrics!!!
4 30 am Posloski was like yes you can follow me (cuz i was bored and not tired surprisingly)
he pimped me about the dressing on this meat slicer finger case (only a bit came of). Pt worked at Tim Hortons and her tip of the finger came off. Posloski says anything under 1cm no need to suture, anything over 1cm you may suture to increase the likelihood of healing. So we didn’t suture. (WSIB patient, so a lot of paperwork, Posloski complained…)
Then this kid with croup…he pimped me and THANK GOD i somewhat got it right.
Q: how would you describe croup…A: um..idk…hoarseness
Q: ok good hoarseness, ok what else…A: um…idk..barking?
Q: yes, like seal bark, yes. Where is this coming from A: um…airway? (i don’t fucking know why i said airway…)
Q: yes, airway, vocal cords *nods*, do they have a wheeze? A:..um.yes?no?? … idk *everyone includes the dad of the kid laughs…*
Q: well it’s a 50/50 chance Betty! is wheeze expiratory or inspiratory? A: …expiratory (still very unsure of ANY of my above answers…note it IS 4/5 am of the morning so my brain is not functioning at its best)
Q: yes it’s expiratory, what do we call the inspiratory? (does not wait for me to answer b/c hey i don’t know anyway) the inspiratory is stridor. If you listen to their chest it’s clear, but if you move up, you’ll hear the stridor, no wheeze.
*END OF PIMPING*
omg so scary….why did i ask for this.
