Opened my Clinical Chemistry reviewer and immediately sobbed.
I wasn’t picked to take the internship examination at Philippine Veteran’s Hospital. Sucks, I really wanted to do my internship in that hospital because it’s so far from home.
gah someone help me. I need to review for hematology but my brain won’t let me D: every time I try to sit and read my notes my brain just tells me to take pictures of my face instead. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITCHU BRAIN.
Yun mga college blockmates ko ang hilig mang trip lalo na yung mga tropang Las PInas. Pag kilala nila crush mo gagawin nila ko-kontratuhin nila yung taong yun tapos papapasukin sa classroom para magbigay sayo ng bulaklak, chocolates, cake or whatever tuwing may special occasion (i.e. birthday, valentine’s day, all soul’s day, araw ng kalayaan etc. etc.). Inggit ako, iniisip ko sana ako din kaso bigla kong naaalala wala nga pala akong matinding crush sa school :))
I just wanna write about babe. A few days ago she told us that her father decided to drop her out of school because her father found out that she still continued to see this guy in our block even after being repeatedly threatened that he’d drop her out of school if she continued seeing him. I don’t know if her father is serious this time. Last time he threatened to drop her the guy and I called on the whole gang and devised a plan to stop him. We almost barricaded ourselves in front of the registrar’s office just to keep him from filing the papers. He didn’t show up that day but babe did and she said her father changed his mind and gave her one last chance. And well fuck, I have hard headed friends and they have me to ask for advice, which doesn’t really help because I’m a ‘fuck the police’ kind of advice giver. It’s a long complicated story but long story short, they’ve been found out and well now we’re all just waiting to see if babe goes to school on Monday. For some reason it really terrifies me. When she told me about it some days ago I cried hard. It was really embarrassing, Tricia, Rhaf and Ate Elaine had to comfort me like I was the one who was getting dropped out. SERIOUSLY, it was that embarrassing. I don’t even know what I was so upset about, it’s not like I’ll never get to see her again (okay, so I don’t know how to get to her place. Yes, so I get lost a lot but there’s nothing a couple of practices won’t fix). Maybe I’m scared because she’s one of those constant things that I held on to on a day to day basis. Like however fucked up my life gets, she’d always be there to poke fun at it. Maybe I’m scared for her future. I’ve always imagined the whole gang graduating and taking the board together. It just doesn’t seem right without her there. I just wish this isn’t final yet. I still don’t believe that her father could do it.
I finally felt like reviewing but then I realized I didn’t listen to last week’s lecture enough to know what our quiz will be about.
guess I won’t review after all :D
I have nothing better to do so I guess I better take a bath, get dressed and wait for the acceptable time to go to school.
Thesis progress report.
My brain doesn’t want to cooperate.
Coming up with a research topic isn’t as easy as I thought it would be, especially when you’re trying to come up with a medically related one where your test subjects could very well be humans. Right now we’re thinking of developing a semen extender using coconut water. It’s proven effective on dogs, swines and bovines but a recommendation suggested developing it further so that it can be used on humans. It’s a good enough research (although I’m not sure if it’s enough to get us the gold medal we’re all aiming for) but problems arise in testing it. Of course the best way of testing its effectiveness would be to test the coconut extended semen’s potency by well, impregnation. I’m not yet sure though, these are still very unsure hypotheses that I’ve formed in my head with my very limited (read: very limited) knowledge on sperm cryopreservation but it’s logical right? If a coconut extended semen (containing the sperms, of course) could impregnate a woman effectively without any complications then that would mean that the experiment is successful, right? Now….who will we impregnate if we ever push through with the research….?
I’m kidding of course. We might not even go for that topic. Or if we do we’ll probably use mice or chickens as test subjects. Actually the longer I think about it, the less appealing it becomes. Doing it on humans would be ambitious, not to mention the moral issues we’d be challenging along the way, but doing it on animals wouldn’t really prove anything that hasn’t been proven in previous researches. It would be like repeating a study just for the sake of having something to present to our professors and that’s something that I strongly refuse to do. I want to work really hard on it and I want to deserve having my name on that research.
But really!!! I’m dying here, I can’t think of a proper topic -___-
On a lighter note, I didn’t fail Parasitology. I don’t know what happened, I was sure I flunked the final exam rather effectively.
For next week’s Red Cross Leadership Development Seminar, we’re required to bring condoms and I just recently found out that our instructors are gonna bring dildos.
This should be interesting.
So apparently today is world suicide prevention day.
They gave us this prayer for people who are about to commit suicide or thinking of doing it…
I prayed it before taking the quiz in Clinical Chemistry.
