Today, I am a copycat and learn how to cure a tickling throat…

I laughed out loud at Charkie’s post in my office (YES! Did I already update you all? I got rid of my cubicle <– go ahead and click on it to view the old space). And then I decided to jump on the bandwagon and copy Charkie.

Cure an itch/a tickle in your throat by scratching your ear.

Wish I had known this throughout my previous twenty-three years of existence. But as it goes – it’s never too late! Since I’m not the medical student that Charkie is, I regret to say that I have no explanation for why this works. Maybe I’ll let her do that part for me.

Have a lovely hump day! I go back to work.

Today, I’m going on a date!

Eeeeeep. I’m going on a date… I won’t say much for now except that I will meet with someone for tea/coffee. 🙂 I’ll channel my inner Liz Lemon –

On a side note, I attended the Pharmacology lecture of my mini medical school series and I just wanted to let you all know: Throw out your grapefruit juice if you’re taking any sort of -statin (high cholesterol) medications! (Avoid that food-drug interaction that you don’t want! And yes, that means Crestor, Lipitor, etc.)

Have a lovely hump day!

Today (or yesterday), I begin mini-medical school!

I learned all about the female pelvis last night. EXCITING STUFF, right?! I was filled with excitement at the thought of going to class. Those first class nerves and anxiety appeared. What if I get lost trying to find the classroom? (Let me remind you that it’s just downstairs from where I work.) Luckily, a co-worker and I are attending the class together and so I did not get lost. +1!

Light refreshments and drinks were provided and then we began the first lecture: ANATOMY. The takeaway from the night is that there are so many things that could go wrong with pregnancy. I’m a bit worried. And I started seeing random structures everywhere. Doesn’t this look like an evil bat?

After lecture, we were taken to the anatomy lab for a hands-on experience. Despite my initial (a couple of seconds) disgust at the beef jerky’s and pork ribs on the table, I later found my curiosity and excitement to be able to explore the human body that I was the first one at the table for the gloves. And here I was… poking and prodding at everything (someone’s hip bone? someone’s armpit?), holding hearts and lungs and just engrossed in the aesthetics of the human body.

Have you ever worked with a cadaver? Have you been out of school for a long time? Do you yearn to take classes again? Or are you in school and yearn to be a free-spirited professional? 🙂 Happy hump day!

Today, I registered for mini-medical school!

I am so excited to report to y’alls that I will soon be a Doctor of Mini-Medicine! Wouldn’t it be cool if we could be doctors of mini-everything?! 😀 If you’re in the general DC area, you might be interested too!

I’ll definitely try to blog about the experience… this will be taking place from October through November.

You probably also noticed that it’s our ONE YEAR anniversary!!!!!  YAYAYAY! We are so excited. Stay tuned for exciting posts and giveaways and exciting celebrations!

As always,
Jarkie
