Happy humpday everyone! This last week has totally gotten away from me. There are only a few weekends left until school starts, so I've been cramming in as many fun things as possible while I still can! Unfortunately it means I also have a lot of research work to catch up on before the end of the summer. :( A big pile of textbooks/step 1 books just came in the mail for me yesterday, and I am NOT excited to open them. Can it just be summer forever?
I don't have too much else to report, but I thought I would share a few things that I've been loving lately!
First are these oh-so-soft jogger pants (pictured above) that I ordered from Loft last week. Its like wearing pajamas, but in your real life! They were a steal at $18 during a 70% off sale, but I think they are still 50% off now. Unfortunately I didn't end up liking anything else in the order, so back it goes.
these water bottles in a gift bag for a lecture I attended last week. I always thought fruit infused water was kind of a gimmick, but after trying it I do have to say that its really good! Definitely helps me to drink more water during the day. I've been using lemon and strawberries because that's what I typically have in my fridge, but I'm looking forward to trying some different combinations after I pick up some more things at the grocery store.
Bought some donut peaches at the farmer's market yesterday, and they might be one of the cutest things I've seen in my life. Like little squashed peach pumpkins. And so sweet!
Someone in my class posted this article to facebook, and I thought it would be a great read for incoming first year medical students (or anyone in medical school!). After experiencing anatomy dissection last year, I agree that it can be difficult to hold on to the "personhood" of your cadaver. In terms of my education, my donor's death had meaning. I would have liked to meet his family and learn about the meaning he gave his life, though. Our anatomy cadavers are really our first patients, and thinking of our patients as human and not just as a disease is what makes good doctors.
What are your favorite things in life and on the internet right now? I'll tell you what is not my favorite thing: public speaking. I have to present my research at a conference on Friday and I'm so nervous. Wish me luck!
