Back to Reality

After having a week-long vacation with my family in Legaspi City and Naga City, I guess I need to get myself back to reality. I really made those days mind-emptied from stresses and depressions from school. I even feel like just an ordinary lassy thinking of nothing and spending ordinary days somewhere else. And those are definitely just a dream that for now I need to wake up.
Next week, our classes will start already. And that will welcome us with a very big semi-final examination. I can only count with my hands the days left for me to savor the goodness of no classes, just merely nothing to think except blogging, off course. Writing, it is.
Talking about writing, I am thinking of indulging myself in a Custom-Writing.org since I almost forgot how to make an essay, a publishable paper works. I need to review my school essay help guidelines in making an essay and other research papers because honestly, I am not confident now of making one unlike those college years of mine. I am just merely a blogger no an essay writers UK-certified. I am becoming a poor essay writer now. Being a blogger is very far different of being an essay writer which I forgot how to be. Smiley
In these counting days left before classes, I might refresh what’s need to be dug up in my past essay knowledge just for my research papers here in medical school. I know I can do this!

Busy Weekend

Comparing last weekend, this week seems to be busier. Just right after our class in clinical pathology last night, we had our dinner meeting for our PCM presentation this Tuesday. We ended around 9:00 last night. After which, I was still checking some videos and more information that we will be needing over the internet and I was able to sleep at around 2:00 this morning. Though I slept late, I was still unable to finish what I need to do since I was stocked on reading Planet Antares updates. I first read ’bout it just last week also. However, while stumbling with internet sites, I have also read about the Planet Antares Scam. I don’t exactly know if those were true or what. I have talked to one of my friends at that same time also who’s working as vending chat representative regarding the issue coz she was the one who has shared to me lots of information regarding the planet. But she was also surprised to know about the scam.
Oh well, aside from those early morning rest I had this day, I woke up at around 5:00 in the morning to prepare for our shooting and taping for the presentation. Actually, we haven’t decided yet what to present last night but good enough we have finally arranged things this morning. We went to Waterfront Hotel and Ayala shopping mall to shoot and take some photos. We’re almost done at around 1:00 PM.

After those academic drowning, we had our lunch and we then went home. Believe it or not, I just woke up at around 5:30 this afternoon. Whew! I was really tired. But my day isn’t done yet with that waking up after more than 3-hour sleep. Actually, that is still the beginning of new air to take in upon reaching of becoming a doctor.

Tired, as it is but good to know of help. Indeed a very busy weekend. More to come these days.

Roulette first, before Pharmacology Research Paper

One of the things I hate most of being a woman is the monthly menstruation. Aside from the brain-cracking attacks of migraine, I am experiencing abdominal cramps already as I have noticed the past months. I guess, this is just due to the hormonal changes due to stress.Yeah, abdominal cramps are killing me and dragging me to stay in bed. I don’t want to take pain relievers coz I thought that it can’t give me any good effects. That’s just for me. Every time I walk, my hips really hurts. And my legs can’t carry me anymore. I’m also nauseated. Waaaaaaaaaah!!!I don’t like this feeling coz I still have bundles of things to do not to mention the very workable pharmacology research study that we are conducting now. But I don’t want to work for the research yet. I want to feel de-stressed and empty my mind from hassles. Haha.

Well, I have a great idea, I better play online games coz last night, I discovered new and very interesting online game aside from casino and slots, the online roulette gambling. Honestly, I only have a very little idea what a roulette gambling is and how it has to be done. So maybe, I might end tonight looking for best online roulette sites to be read for me to have more information about it. I might also look for the best online roulette free sites where I can play all day all night tomorrow. So for now, pharmacology research paper just wait for your turn. LOL!

If only..

One of the most fascinating branch in Mathematics to study is Algebra which, for now, I wish to study. It’s not that I haven’t learned any from those times, but I just miss how to divide simple equations presenting it in a standard form or slope formula.

Before, it is used to be one such difficult subject to take. But once learned, I realized numbers are just so simple and easy to handle upon. Comparing it to any field of sciences, most specifically, biology, which is subsequently dynamic, I’d rather chose being a mathematician then.

For less than 24 hours from now, we’ll be having an examination in our Pharmacology and Microbiology, yet I haven’t had run through reviews with it all since every time I look at my notes, I curled in. If only studying medicine is as simple as manipulating numbers like in algebra, I couldn’t ask for more books and extra time to study. Yeah! Honestly, every time I start to stare at my books, I could only imagine those junior high school years wherein I just used to play and throw jokes while attending algebra classes.

Just A Reunion: UPMin BioS Batch 2003

After a number of years that the University of the Philippines Mindanao (UPMin) Bachelor of Science in Biology (BSBio) Batch 2003 haven’t had a reunion yet. And finally, we found the long-waited, night to be with each others’ laughs last April 30, 2010.

We just met at Dimsum Diner in Torres Street in Davao City where we had our dinner also. Smiley

After making ourselves bloated, we went to K1, videoke and KTV bar to have some sing-a-long moments and had some drinks there. This was one of our used-to-do things in college when hanging out – drinking and singing in a bar. Smiley

After those sweet talks, jokes, songs and drinks together in a KTV, we decided to get some shisha. Most of my classmates haven’t tried shisha yet, so I let them breathe vanilla-flavored yet deoxygenated air. LOL!

A night with them made me reminisce all those memories we had in college – in UPMindanao. However, I was just kind’a upset after these photos were posted in facebook since a number of people (friends, though, who’re not from UPMindanao) commented negatively like I just have nothing to do but to drink. Too bad to think that they don’t know who really am I yet just easily could make a word out of an album of a night with college friends.
Thence, one of my classmates in medicine, from Silliman University throw me a joke days after she read those comments in my facebook. She said I might need to undergo drug rehab or alcohol rehab because of that or maybe she can pay for my alcohol treatment. We’re just laughing then.
Just think of this, would medical schools accept me, nor my parents if I’d been very addictive to alcohols?

E-books, Photocopied Books or Original Books?

Medical doctors and practitioners who are in academe also really suggested to have each medical students their own medical books to bring and read, individually. However, no one can deny that in this new era, everything is very costly. Each medical student prefers the cheaper ones, just like me, personally.
In a year of studying medicine, I have found out that there are some instances that e-books (electronic books) are the most practical means of having books in medical school. Hard bound, original, laser printed clear pages of books are of far most expensive than e-books. In fact, there are a number of website which are providing each medical students free medical e-books.
On the other hand, there are still numbers of students who are considering just the photocopies of books. Though the images are not clear since colored photocopying is definitely costly than those black/white photocopies. In fact, I once sent some jokes to my classmates that I’m gonna stop medical schooling and I’ll just have my own business in photocopying – gotta buy canon copier, black/white and canon color copiers. Smiley

Well, for me, I consider the three ‘coz they are useful in different ways. Sometimes, settling with photocopies of some pages of books is better than buying the whole book itself. In other times, e-books are useful in terms of animated medical lessons. But most of the time, real hard copies of books are the most convenient by far.

Exams..exams..exams..

Nothing beats more than the hellest of hellest week we would have in medical school by far but the fast approaching finals week. That would be March 15 to 19, 2010. Some doctors said that the final exams will be a comprehensive exam – from the very first discussion we had last semester up to the last topic that we could cover up this semester. Smiley In short, from preface of the book to the last index page. Just imagine now how my eyes would get baggy after this semester. SmileyStarting today up to Friday next week, we are already actually flooded with exams. But good enough, that some doctors are sharing their lecture notes so we won’t read books, as required but only when needed. Honestly, its really a great hassle for us to read a 5-chapter exam that would only comprise 50 items comparing to a minimum of 10-page lecture notes. Oh well, we would rather choose the latter so we could study 2 or 3 subjects a night. Wouldn’t you?

The only prob that we could have if doctors will share their lecture notes is the printing of those colored images. Off course, we won’t understand well the notes if not to print it colored. And darn, my printer cartridge now easily gets empty. Smiley One of my friends suggested me to use Dell Ink Cartridges. I haven’t tried it though, but as what she shared, Dell is a real great brand for printer cartridges. I might just look for it as soon as I went home, maybe by the end of this month or on the first week of April in Davao City, and change then my printer too.

Aja to me. LOL!

 

Needs Refill

I haven’t noticed that I need my HP Ink Cartridges changed until I supposed to print one of the 15-page exam sets of notes in Family and Community Medicine this morning. Smiley I actually overlooked it coz I think I just had it changed with new cartridges yesterday. LOL! I remember the last time I bought new cartridges was before our 3rd-bimonthly exam, that was still on January 9. Isn’t that too long? Is it?

For almost three years now, this HP printer of mine has been serving me good. It has still on its best quality though am using it hard, sometimes too harsh like am letting it print hundreds of pages without resting. Yes, I did. That was when I was still having my thesis in college. I reproduced 5 copies of my more or less 150-page thesis. But look, my HP printer stands still and so loyal to me. Haha.

I am actually using the HP cartridge numbers 21 and 22 for black and colored ink cartridges, respectively. And I used to buy both cartridges at the same time. But since I got hard time looking for the combo cartridges wherein a set of cartridges 21 and 22 are packed as one, I opted to look for cartridges online. Good thing I stumbled upon Inkcartridges.com where I even found a number of top brands of ink cartridges that they are selling other thatn HP. Aside from that, they have been one trusted company selling ink cartridges online. And now, I am considering them where I’m gonna purchase one from them instead of going to Cebu City just for the two cartridges. What do you think?
