do you guys ever wish you never have to sleep?
without compromising functionality or alertness.
students at my school have to go visit a practicing doc every other week for 3 hours to observe, learn, and practice skills. usually they are grouped into family doctors, pediatrics, or internal medicine. my preceptor is listed under family. the place i actually visit every other week is an STD clinic.
no, i do not see ear infections, stomach pains, asthma cases... i see things from a whole different perspective.
this has been the case since last year but it was only until today that i felt sick while writing up my report for tomorrow. the phrases i had to use... just didn't go well with the apple i had earlier.
i also got another parking ticket today. no comment on this yet.

do you guys ever wish you never have to sleep?

i really need to get back to "blog life mode" ... i don't know how i drifted away from it. maybe i should read my old entries and be inspired.. :) you know, since i'm so inspiring and all ;)
okay, in a nutshell.
last week was spring break. in haste, i stuffed my luggage with extra clothes and left VA for home. it was a nice reunion for my family with my sister also on break. (hm.. at this rate, i will not get the adequate sleep i need to stay awake in class. this would be a problem since max. attention on the professor is all i'm betting on for tomorrow's lecture. i haven't books for two weeks. maybe i should list out the 'happenings'... here we go.) lounging, church, bad bubble tea at college park, DC and my awful luck with stores and streets, finding the smallness of 'greater metro area of DC' as i bumped into random people i knew, girl talk over ramen, unexpected phonecall from ny, kansas city, public policy and many many docs and med students, inspirations and challenges, lots of coffee and sugar and candies, free candies and toys from conference exhibitors, the original KC masterpiece bbq, home, tv time, partial to the bravo channel that turned me into a fan of barbara streisand. (yup, i like her now. and she does sing well. something about smart woman who are successful in what they do. they grab my attention. and if she can talk eloquently from her heart, she has my interest. and by chance, if this woman comes across as genuine, then i'm her fan. i like babs. i was never interested in martha steward.)
man, what a messy post. maybe i can work on this later. maybe i'll slice it into bits and elaborate tomorrow... or the day aftr tomorrow. to make up for the incoherent paragraph above, here's pic a friend emailed me. from our formal in february. ... i need some color on my face, don't ya think?

i hate packing/unpacking.
this is not good. i'm back at school and my roommie's out to dinner. being alone here might trigger that post-break depression.
i promise and promise to update later tonight even if i have to cut into the precious sleep time.

i'm really not suppose to write but couldn't resist.
i've been drooling over this website for the past two hours. sad huh? i might have to make a stop on my way 'home home' this weekend. yes, spring break starts this friday afternoon. but i'm toying with the idea of starting it a day sooner. don't worry.. i won't skip any classes ;)
there's always a list of people i want to meet up with, chat over coffee, have lunch or dinner together when i'm back home. but when the time actually comes closer, the urge to be a hermit rules over the motivation to go out and i end up seeing one or two peeps. -- at this rate, i might not have friends in a few years. oh no!
one thing i cannot understand the more i think about it. why do people check other's out at a gym? i mean, don't we all want to mind our own sweaty business? is it just me who needs complete focus on the elliptical alone to finish my 30 min period?

this might sound strange, but i really miss writing to you guys...
whoever you are.
wait, i do know most of you, don't i?
i was enlightened with a tid-bit advice that if i start liking what i study, like loving it, my days might be easier. like the saying, if you're in love, it shows. so... i'm trying really hard to love these slides i'm looking at right now.
woo, lamina propria.. how wonderfully smooth you look.
and those parietal cells, you remind me of sunny-side ups from denny's.
not to mention these gastric pits. you beat the coolest batik design i've ever seen.
and lastly but certainly not the least, you anal orifice, who knew you had hair! how cute...
goblet cells... gobble gobble gobble.
