Med school recap week 6: I can't spell DO

1. Someone should get in a time machine and go back to right before last week's recap and punch me right in the butt. I'd do it myself, but there's that whole space-time continuum per Doc Brown and I'd never make it back. I said it wasn't so bad. Lies.
2. Three tests last week and two this week = ARGH. TPIC (The People In Charge) keep telling us to read ahead, study every day, learn to prioritize, and remember to take care of ourselves. I can't seem to manage to do more than one of those things in one day. So my solution is to learn to deal with what's immediately in front of me for as long as I can, and then occasionally come up for air and reintroduce myself to my family and friends. Also I've eaten nothing but garbage all week.
3. I've bargained with God a lot this week. I heard a pastor say once that God likes it when we make promises, but we have to keep them. I hope God realizes the duress I'm under and gives me a pass on some of the things I mumbled this week. Otherwise, I'm going to be studying all day every day even when there's no exams on the week's schedule. I probably should do that anyway, huh?
4. I have a big ol' box of bones sitting in my room at home. I can't wait to get done today so I can go pull them all out and study all the stuff we're supposed to know about them. I'm ready to get beyond pulling one out the box and going, "This is the ulna, right?"
5. At some point I'm going to have to stop writing these because if I read this about my doctor, I'd have second thoughts about putting my health in his hands.
