Well, so far the M2 year has kept me pretty busy. We’ve worked through the cardiovascular and respiratory sequences, and now I’m neck deep in renal pathophysiology. The good news is that despite more lectures on denser material, we don’t always have quizzes every weekend any longer. It’s nice to be able to take a weekend off every once and a while to catch up on the other important things in my life (Read: sleep).
In other news, I’m spending my spare time golfing, going to football games, working on my car, and celebrating a couple birthdays (including my own…don’t ask how old I am, I don’t even know the correct answer most days). However, one of these birthdays included that of my girlfriend’s great-grandmother, who just turned 106. Yes, 106. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got to celebrate 107, 108, 109, and 110 with her at the rate she’s going. In fact, she still lives alone in an apartment complex and doesn’t take any medications. Here’s an article about her back when she was celebrating a meager 105 years on this planet.
As a side note, I haven’t had to use that fire extinguisher I got for Christmas last year. Mom, dad, you both should be proud of me.
