Sprint of Stupidity

Life, Pharmacy School 3 Comments »

On occasion, I’ve been know to make a mistake or two.  Ordinarily, I would never admit it, but today I had witnesses.

Last night it was not until a very late (or early) hour that I was finally able to fall asleep.  Naturally, after my first class this morning, I thought nap was a good idea for my 2 hour break.  Being as I am, I made sure to set an alarm to wake me 40 minutes before my class at noon.  I double and triple checked to make sure it was set correctly.  After waking up from my nap, I looked at my alarm and found that it was already 10:57!

I had just woken up, and for some reason was convinced my class was at 11:00.  I bolted out of bed, threw my laptop in my backpack, and made the decision that it’s better to be late than to skip.  However, not ever skipping or being late to class, I decided that I would run to class and just sneak into the lecture hall when I got there.

I was halfway to class, when I saw one of my classmates walking, in the opposite direction I was headed. Completely out of breath, I asked her why she wasn’t going to class.  Did I feel stupid when she said, “Dosage Forms is at 12 o’clock, and it’s only 11.”  I thought about it for a second or two, and then explained to her exactly what had happened.  She found it humorous, as did I.  Of course I was quite embarrassed, but I deserved to be.

Oh where is my high pass?

So I’m officially tired of writing care plans for therapeutics case conference.  Case conference is basically like the tv show “House”, where we are given a patient chart and have to identify what is wrong with them and the best way to treat their problems.  It may sound like fun, but the write-up afterwards is a huge pain that takes hours.  Basically I’ve submitted four so far and received a Pass for each one.  To get an A, I need to get 3 High Passes.  Lucky for me, 3 of my Passes will be counted as a High Pass, assuming I get at least one High Pass.  For a one credit-hour course, I’ve put a ton of effort into it, and hope to get a High Pass soon.

This brings me to today, when I began writing my 5th care plan and decided that I’m taking this week off.  We do not need to submit a care plan each week, and I have thus far not missed a week.  However, I think I could use the break to lift weights, take a walk, hopefully take a few pictures, and they go to outdoor mass tonight.  The weather is wonderful and I plan on enjoying it.

Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming

Ever since I stopped swimming for Butler, mid-season my sophomore year, I’ve missed it like crazy. I knew I couldn’t do it anymore because it took too much time out of everyday and too much energy out of little me. This was best demonstrated by falling asleep in organic chemistry and anatomy. It could have been the subject matter, but I knew I had to quit so I did.

I am not a quitter. It bothered me that I had quit swimming. When the athletic director announced that men’s swimming was being cut, it really got to me. Lucky for me, because the team was cut, they guys on the team last year decided to get a club team started. To make a long story short, our first practice was yesterday and the second practice was this evening. Although challenging, swimming in a group is incomparable to swimming alone. It’s a lot more fun, and it encourages me to push myself a lot more. I’m super excited to be swimming on a team again!

In lab today we made suppositories. Without further explanation necessary, they were indeed the butt of many jokes. The best part of lab was when my lab partner had to consult me on proper use of a suppository.
