11:03: That histology exam was probably the most poorly written exam I have ever taken.
Maybe I shouldn't say that on a public forum.
Anyway. Poorly written exam.
Moving on to molecular biology. New professor today. Molecular biology is our next exam. The exam is Tuesday. So I need to get a move on that.
I also present on the foregut tomorrow, including the spleen and pancreas. So I'll need to know the lymphatics, the profusion (I mean mostly it's all stuff coming off of the celiac trunk. The right gastro-omental artery might come off of the superior mesenteric artery, not positive about that. I don't know the veins and I could review the lymphatics.
I mean first we actually have to find the things in our body so...we haven't found the celiac trunk yet. And if we could maybe find the celiac ganglion with the celiac trunk, that'd be great.
Oh my god. It's October.
I hope my roommate gets back to the apartment before 5 to pay rent.

9:49: My roommate did get the rent in on time.
Last night I drank two schooners at Chumley's with my classmates and I got really depressed and called Ryan and Stan and Brandon. Ryan was asleep and I don't think the call to Brandon went through because Stan called back pretty much right away.
20:31: Anyway, I was feeling pretty lonely. But after getting sleep I feel a lot better. Sleep is really important and I know that. I really shouldn't sacrifice sleep for other things. Anyway I should probably get to studying.
20:51: I got a 22/25 on my presentation today. I didn't know the blood supply for the caudate and quadrate lobe of the liver. I didn't know the name for the triangle of Calot, where the cystic artery can be found (important in cholecystectomies/gall bladder removal). I think I said something along the lines of "I don't know the name for the triangle but it's made from the bile ducts", which I think may be an incorrect statement due to innacuracy. The right and left hepatic ducts merge to form a common hepatic duct and the cystic duct meets the common hepatic duct to form the common bile duct I believe. I'll have to go back and review that.
Our dissection of the gut went pretty well. It was odd opening up the cecum with all the fecal matter in it. I wanted to gag and vomit but managed to hold it in pretty well but was the first to be up and done with the dissection. Carly's mantra seemed to be "don't think about it, don't think about what you're doing, don't think about it..." She's a trooper. She's a great person. Not to say that any of my classmates aren't great people.

13:42: The last couple of days have been very unproductive for me study-wise. I have an exam Tuesday that I have not studied for at all yet and it's bad but I sort of don't even give a crap.
October 4, 2015
20:20: I give a crap, but I'm tired and took a lot of the day off. I need to study. Need to study! AUGH!
Anyway I feel pretty well prepared for the multiple choice section.
