Thank GOD for Adrenaline…

I woke up early this morning with a nagging thought in my head… something was telling me that I had incorrectly done my health history paper. It was 5:30am. I tumbled out of bed and stumbled to the kitchen, poured myself a cup of ambition, yawnin’, stretchin’, tryin’ to come to life…

Finally making it to my study desk, I checked the rubric for the paper and CRAP IN A BAG I WAS RIGHT.

At first I thought it was some cruel April Fool’s joke I was playing on myself, but then I asked myself, “Self? Why are you doing this? It ain’t funny, man!” And then myself assured me that it was NOT a joke. At that moment, I really wished it were.

So I spent the majority of the morning rewriting the paper. I made it to class with about 10 minutes to spare… handed my paper in and thanked GOD that now, I could at least get a “B” (but I’m pullin’ for an “A”).

Mornings like these make me grateful for things like adrenaline.

Health Assessment lab was a good time, though. We have now just about finished the entire physical assessment process and had a chance to practice it on each other. Here’s a picture of some of us doing just that:

As you can tell from Carlos and Andrew, we were going over the nose and sinus material. Incidentally, Carlos showed us the iPad2 and man alive I want one now. Not because I really need one, but because I want to be cool.

Demi and Marissa were singing the “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” song… you can probably guess what line Marissa was at when I snapped the picture.

The day isn’t complete without Cindy getting into the midst of things. I was trying to get another picture of Carlos and Andrew, but Cindy wouldn’t have it.


"I don't know what I'm reaching for, but I need it NOW!"

It was a good day. I’m grateful for my classmates… they definitely help the medicine go down.
