Now for some med school updates

So here's what we've been up to:

I absolutely love Gross Anatomy! My favorite class ever! I could be in the gross lab every day!
Microanatomy- eh, not my fav, but its ok
Physiology- Hate!!!

All the upperclassmen keep telling us that med school is on a different wavelength, and all you have to do is figure out how to study and then its easy (or at least not as hard). Well, no one seems to be sharing this secret on "how to study." I guess that its different for everybody. But i'd really like to figure it out for physiology. Although, the NBME (finals) is in 3 weeks, so i guess its too late. I'm just trying to keep my head afloat! I do NOT want to retake this class. Please, please let me pass the NBME so i dont have to repeat!

Well, here are some fun things we have gotten to do in Gross:
as you saw from the last post, we cut out the intestines and cleaned out the poop
One day we had to cut our body in half! and that was me with the saw thank you very much!
Recently we've been on the pelvic region, so we had to cut a penis in half. Our body is female, so we just had to observe that one!
I am super excited about the pelvic region cause we all know that i'm aiming to be a gyno!

Next week we get to learn how to do the pelvic exam. I am so excited!!!
