Do we see the wind? My allergies are going crazy. I'm snorting flonase like it's...
...maybe I won't finish that sentence.
Today's battle: Micro. Some of it I knew, some of it I'd never seen before in my life. Ever. It felt like every other question was about lab techniques...I'm sure they weren't that frequent, but since I didn't know any of them, they really stick in my mind. I'm not sure how long until I find out about this one. Since we take the subject exam from the National Board, they have to send it to them for scoring, so it'll probably be a while.
Update on Pathophysiology: I have officially passed the class! I know you all thought I would, but I was quite concerned. Still, thanks for all the encouragement.
Next on the lineup: Pharmacology on Thursday. It's the other one I'm having a lot of doubts about. All those dang drugs sound the same when you're a second-year and you haven't had enough clinical experience to memorize them with actual cases. I sincerely hope my knowledge of this topic becomes way less sketchy when I start actually prescribing these drugs.
After that: Biochem and Preventative Medicine (mixed) on Friday, Pathology on Monday.
Ok, enough finals whining.
Let's talk brain fuel
Breakfasts: Granola, Oatmeal, Cereal oh my!
Today I made it smile at me.
Since we vegans don't eat animals, we like to anthropomorphize our fruit before we mix it up and devour it voraciously.
Lunch (repeated 4 times recently...) has been:
Vegan Crispy Chicken with steamed carrots and broccoli topped with ground ginger and nutritional yeast
Today was a new one:
Morningstar Vegan Griller on a homemade english muffin with vegenaise, mustard, cucumber, lettuce and, for a twist, a strawberry!
It was stacked a little tall for actual eating, but the flavor combination was awesome, if messy.
Three-Bean Dal (Vegan Planet)
Red Bean and Sweet Potato Curry (Also Vegan Planet)
My additions: extra lemon juice and spinach
Finally, snacks of course.
Apples, enormous oranges, and SIAWG.
In the mix: 1/2 frozen banana, 3/4 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup plain yogurt
And now back to pharmacology. I leave you with this pretty flower that I sniper-photographed from our neighbors.
