iPods and i-Pots....

A little video from YouTube...:P

Talk about cutting it close.

I got an A in my anatomy class.

By 0.1%.

I'm fucking ecstatic now. :)

Have a good Memorial Day everyone. :)

What the hell is up with the crazy Asian people?

First, the Virginia tech shooter. No explanation needed.

Now, the Korean American woman who was able to pretend that she was a student at Stanford for nearly a year before she got caught. (Full story from sfgate.com here)

And a second Asian woman, Japanese American, is being banned from Stanford Physics for doing the same thing. (Click here for the article)

I don't particularly understand why people aren't noticing the fact that these people are crazy, especially if the first Stanford woman is "distraught and hysterical" for getting caught, and some people are actually calling for her to stay at Stanford to get her degree.

Personally, if she were to take some meds and do some real therapy, maybe, but otherwise, no way in frickin' hell would I want a biologist or physicist with that kind of mental fuckups to be doing any work.

At least in sociology, it's a given that you're at least some kind of sociopath to get into that line of work. :)

Class is over!

So I finished my anatomy class final yesterday, and I'm feeling really good (even though I was only 0.3% away from a frickin' A coming into the final), and hopefully I'll get an A (I hope).

It feels that a psychological weight's been lifted after passing the class--since this was the one course I was dreading about taking for my prep for pharm school, especially given my past history of doing so badly the first time around. Then again, it actually helped that I actually studied for the class and was motivated this time, unlike the first time I took the class.

Spending all that time studying cadavers also wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and had refused (for the most part) to eat any animal parts that had bones attached to them for the whole entire class. But I did find myself eating fried chicken on the bone last night for dinner and I realized that I had almost completely forgotten about the lab for anatomy. I ate the chicken anyway.

I was debating over whether to take some classes over the summer before my compressed accelerated organic chemistry class starting at the end of July, and I realized that I want to enjoy this summer until then, so I'll just hold off until fall to take these classes. This chemistry class is the last class that I have to repeat, but it's going to be a bitch--18 weeks of classes compressed into 4 weekends, studying 3 hours a day, every day in between. I'm actually looking forward to it, because it'll be like running the gauntlet, and I'm ready for it now.

For now, I'm going to enjoy these next two months. :)

No more clitorises (what IS the plural of that word)!

Just took my lab final for my anatomy class and for the most part I did well (I think). At least I was able to identify the clitoris. And I didn't have to know it all that well.

I'm comfortable with it just being its acquaintance anyway.

Now I have to worry about the final.

Spend some time with the clitoris!

So I'm frantically headed towards the end of my anatomy class, which means that we're doing the final part of the lab, the genitourinary system. So we start with the female reproductive system.

The prof is showing us all the various structures in cadavers and plastic models, and as he ends his lecture, he says, "I want all of you to spend some time with the clitoris and get to know it better."

Excuse me? Spend time with the clitoris?

It sounds like it was some ad campaign for this new destination.

"Spend some time with the clitoris! Wish you were here!"

The husband thought of a great line:

"My grandma went to the clitoris, and all I got this was this T-shirt!"

I can't wait for this class to be over--even if I am getting an A.

The problem with taking so many science classes...

Not enough cute guys! (sigh)

I've noticed that in practically all the classes that I've taken since '05 in prepping for pharm school apps is that there's at least a majority of the class is women. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but there just seems to be a dearth of good looking guys doing science. I guess it doesn't help that I also am a good 10-15 years older than most of these guys so there's no one worth really looking at.

The funny thing is that most of the guys who are in my classes tend to be queer, since most of the classes I've been taking are also prereqs for nursing, so it's not that much of a stretch. Too bad I don't find them too attractive.

My anatomy prof is kinda good looking--for an older white guy, until I saw him on Wednesday wearing an ill-fitting shirt and pants that made him look like a white MC Hammer.

*sigh*

On that note, I was swimming yesterday when my coach (who is 13 years younger than me) decided to bring in the kids he coaches from a local high school. The girl who I was swimming asked me, "Don't you think they're hot?"

I looked at her in horror. It just depressed me to realize that I'm about twice their age, and instead of thinking they're attractive, my maternal instincts came up. I did notice that these boys tended to be a lot more muscular than the boys I knew in high school, but otherwise they didn't do anything at all for me.

I guess I'm just one of those guys who likes guys around his age--for me, I think there's too much potential for a weird power differential to happen or some weird daddy-son thing going on that gives me the creeps. My roommate in LA was this older Chinese guy (if I remember correctly, late 40s) who happened to like younger Asian men (around my age at the time which was 22-23--thankfully we never did anything). He happened to date this guy who was just a couple years older than me, and I walked in on them kissing. For some reason it creeped me out, because it did look a lot like father-son to me. Now I have respect for people in relationships where there's a huge age differential and they can make it work, but it's not for me.

Speaking of which, now that I'm over 30, and because of my build, I've suddenly become desirable to younger Asian guys who want a big brother/father (!!!) type, and I turn them down--because I'm really, really not into that.

wtf?

So I'm in the middle of my anatomy class today (3 weeks before the final--ack!) and taking notes and trying to cram for my anatomy lab quiz to happen immediately afterwards.

In the middle of my taking notes, I put my hand on my face and notice something wet, and notice blood on my fingers. For some reason, I was bleeding from some unknown cut on my face which was freaking me out. It was a minor cut and it wasn't bleeding that much but it was still weird.

At least the cut finally healed in time for my quiz. Blech.

I also just got my pathology report of the cyst that was removed--totally normal. Now just gotta wait for these damn Steri-Strips to fall off.
