Random Links and Renal Cell

Disclaimer: I write this in the throws of yet another caffeine high. For those who care, my radiology test went great (big shout out to my study partner Ashley Rowatt), so that’s one down three to go. In all reality, psych, path, and neuro make up the majority of my lectures so it’s more like “one down, nine to go” but semantics really aren’t my thing. Loyal readers of my blog will know my feelings about psych, thus right now my focus is squarely on the remaining two. Much like metastatic renal cell carcinoma, the multifocal nature of my study plan is causing some problems. I am now so hesitant to commit to either that I’m beginning to think I should run for office (give me the cheap shots, it’s late).

Time management is an important skill in medical school. It is also one that I don’t have. Thus the question “Is neuro more important than a new episode of Lost?” has an obvious, albeit inverted, answer. After finishing my show I am refreshed and ready to study. Why would anyone ask such an obviously rhetorical question?

Speaking of time management, I don’t have time for a witty rundown of all the happenings in the world of medicine, so here’s a list of some fun ones.

So there you go, click and learn. Impress your friends. You’ll be the better for it and I, having not had to tell you about it, will have more time throw my psych book over the fence in protest.
