Nothing like the reminder of med school starting back up after a week long break to really put the fear of God in you. This week has been a glorious opportunity to catch up on life, friends, and tv shows once abandoned. The fast realization that it has come to an end has me wishing a brave sole might humbly ask the admissions board, “please sir, may I have some more?”. No doubt we will hit the ground running in this next module as we transition from anatomy to molecules to cells, and I hope I will come prepared. Our previous module of anatomy offered an amazing opportunity to respectfully study the human body thanks to those who donated to the pursuit of health care and science. It was filled with moments of intense wonder- such as the first time I held a heart- and followed a fast-paced, interactive curriculum. This next module will consist of subjects such as biochemistry and genetics, and will mainly involve studying in solitude. As such, this will require a greater amount of self-discipline and motivation, and I hope I am up for the challenge. In addition, I pray my head is capable of managing an increase in inter-cranial pressure, because I’m not sure how much more additional information will fit in it before it bursts. Sorry, I know I’m not humerus…. I don’t have much time to write today as I head back to school, so I bid you all fare-well! Stay healthy and happy, and remember we are not human doings, we are human beings.
