what it's like

med students have always been viewed by a lot of people (not all though..just some) as serious, competitive, boring, no fun individuals who eat their books for breakfast, lunch and dinner. if they think of us that way, then they are mistaken. we have our great weaknesses as well and in my case..my overpowering, fiercest foe--is SLEEPINESS. is it due to my lack of sleep the night before 'cause of studying(drinking, partying??), did i happen to eat too much during breakfast/lunch(hyperglycemia/soporific) or is it because the lecture got so boring?? i dunno..could be due to any of the above given reasons..fortunately, we got something called coffee. lol. (i'm becoming tolerant though..the instant coffee has no effect on me as far as i'm concerned. i need brewed coffee or kapeng barako instead. anyone from batangas who's reading this blog? :p

oh no! got caught!

another thing you wouldn't miss is that most of us also have this OC trait. it's ok as long as it's just a trait and it doesn't interfere in the normal social and occupational functioning of a person.
med students have this passion for highlighters(check dak's site for proof)-stabilo, staedtler, faber-castell and the like-they are our bestfriends. to some highlighting had become an art resulting to highly colored notes and books wherein everything is highlighted(as in the whole paragraph or the whole page even) ill show you a sample next time. for now, here is my friend james with his bestfriends. i think he needs more or less 5 highlighters at a time everytime he listens to lectures. he makes notes at the same time as well. sipag di ba? :)

    I didn't take up medicine (my parents wanted me to) but I am a stabilo freak as well. My notes in school, my books, my training manuals at work and my to-do list journal - all colored with stabilo. My preference is neon green but I also use other colors for color coding! He he.

    BTW, Batangueno nga pala ako and you're right, nothing beats kapeng barako!
