I don't know how I survived today

First I had my Biochemistry midterm. I realized this morning at 5:30am that there were a few pages of practice problems I had forgotten to do. Oops. Worked on those for a couple of hours before the exam. I got a B though, so everything worked out okay.

Then our Physiology professor, in his lecture about the male sexual response, proceeded to tell us how penile rings work. Mind you, this man is probably near 75 years old. And this was his lecture. On a sex toy. Innnnteresting.

Then, in the afternoon, this same professor lectured us on various things that can go wrong developmentally, like girls who turn out to be boys and boys who later turn out to be girls, complete with pictures. Of course being the perpetual 12 year old that I am, I couldn't stop humming Aerosmith's "Dude Looks Like a Lady". Thank goodness I sit near the back, so our professor couldn't see the tears streaming down my face as I tried to stop laughing and pull myself together. I think I was just punchy from lack of sleep and extreme stress. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

Heat Wave

It's supposed to get up to 47 degrees on Saturday! I am so excited! A day with temperatures above freezing! Yay! Exclamation points!!!!!

EDIT: It actually got up to 51 degrees today, and in celebration I kept my windows open all day. It was fabulous! Bring on Spring!

Feel your doctor doesn't listen to you?

It's probably for your own good.

Check out this post over at The Happy Hospitalist. Happy has a lot to say about the dwindling trust in doctors as well as the dwindling paychecks for primary care physicians. I definitely recommend checking out his site whenever you can if you want to find out what I will be up against in a few more short years.
