OK, I know people are going to get irritated at me, but just let me vent, OK? So my first day of class begins today with my friend calling me while I'm in my PJ's and still getting ready. She tells me that she is downstairs, ready to go, and brought along someone who wants to say hello to me. I don't know who she is bringing, but I hurry to put some clothes on and look halfway presentable, and it turns out to be her roommate, my ex. He was friendly enough, but I don't think he wanted to see me any more than I wanted to see him Then we go into the lecture hall, and this guy that I was attracted to, really nice and friendly, has brought his girlfriend (an undergrad on break I guess) to friggin class! I didn't even know he had a girlfriend. oh well. I then walk out to the lobby after lecture where the scrubs I ordered MONTHS before are supposed to be, and they have not yet come in due to the fact that the girl who was supposed to pick them up from the warehouse was too lazy to do it. Then we go to the bookstore, where they are completely out of scrub pants, dissecting kits, and latex gloves. Surprise surprise. THEN we head to anatomy lecture where we get SWAMPED with information. I know I should have been prepared, but it totally caught me off my guard. In anatomy lab, things went OK (although the first day with the cadaver is always a bit scary) except that at one point after I had been dissecting, one of the teaching aids came to go over things with us and while listening to him I inadverently put my hand on a loose strand of hair! Ack, what was I thinking? Anyway, I'm off my tirade for now. thanks for listening, and please don't respond in any of the following ways: 1)"You should have been better prepared for anatomy today, maybe you are not able to handle the responsibility of med school." OK, fair enough, but I wanted to enjoy my break and not worry about it until I got here; is that so very terrible? 2)"Don't worry about that guy, you shouldn't date a fellow med student anyway." Whatever, I'm not even going to comment on that remark, to each his own. And with anatomy coming up, I'm really not concerned. 3)"How the hell could you be so careless in gross lab and ended up with your hand on your hair? EW!" Um, OK, I probably deserve that remark 4) "Shut the #$%$ up and stop whining".. OK, OK, I will, have a good day, and if the administrators or anyone else find this thread offensive, please feel free to delete it.
