Another Day In The Life today! The last one I posted was an atypical day, so this one is a little more normal.
This was actually two Thursdays ago during our first week back after Thanksgiving break. While most students have been cramming for finals, we’ve actually been in a pretty easy period! We were used to having a test every week in our previous modules, and just two tests in this five week GI class means we have gotten lots of room to breath. I’ve been able to have way too much fun (see: parties and movies during the week!) and also get some boards studying done. This week is our final though, so back to the grind!
6:57am: Again my body wakes me up on it’s own, but my alarm as set for 7 anyway. I lay in bed, check my phone, then get up an get ready for the gym.
7:25am: Out the door, with my Vega pre-workout of course! I drink this when I go to the gym in the morning (1) for hydration and energy and (2) because coffee right before I workout doesn’t sound good!
Wear Figs fleece, c/o
7:45am: I’m in the mind body room of the gym to do some yoga on my own. I’ve been doing this more, and love this room for it, to work on poses we don’t normally get to in class! I practice more arm balances, inversions, and today I got SUPER close to the splits!!
8:55am: Back home. I sync my laptop to our Apple TV to start live streaming lectures, and then make some breakfast and coffee while I watch. Today’s lectures are on dysphagia, dyspepsia, GERD and non-neoplastic diseases of the intestines.
12:00pm: Lecture is over! I mess around on the internet for a few minutes, then heat up the last of my Pizza Spaghetti Pie for lunch.
12:30pm: I go out side and play fetch with Gus for a little bit. Take pictures of my outfit because bloggers do things like that, they get all my stuff ready to hit the road.
12:45pm: I stop at Walgreens to pick up a photo I had printed for my Step One application.
1pm: At school! I got my photo and application all ready to go, but of course the lady that has to sign it for me is out of the office today. Oh well!! Back to the library to study for a few hours before lab.
2:30-3:45pm: Lab. We do some case studies on different intestinal pathology.
4-5pm: We hold interviews for the new leads of the Wellness Learning Community. it’s a really hard decision and we hate having to narrow it down, but I think we end up with a good group.
5:45pm: I‘m at my friend Stephanie’s house to help her practice for her full physical OSCE tomorrow. We run through it, then she takes me out to dinner as a thank you! We went to Seedz, a local vegan place that I’ve never been. We split two pizzas and they were SO INSANELY GOOD. Like holy cow. I want to eat it again and again! Thanks, Steph!
8:00pm: I’m home. I chat with my roommates for a little while, then poor a glass of wine and sit down to finish up some more Pathoma videos.
9pm: My roommates are yelling at my from upstairs to go watch The Santa Clause with them! I decide to put away my school work and just work on the blog for a little bit while I watch with them. The pups cuddle with us, too!
10:30pm: In bed, lights out!
