my brain is full

I’ve been studying hardcore (or at least what I would call hardcore) for my quals for the last 11 days and I still feel like I know nothing.  It’s quite depressing.  It all boils down to the fact that I don’t really know how to study for this highly amorphous test.  I now have 85 days left until my quals and I don’t know if I’m making good progress or not.  I still don’t know how inhaled anesthetics work even though I already finished studying my Basics of Anesthesia book.  How am I supposed to remember everything 85 days from now when I can’t even remember things I learned only 7 days ago?  Gah.  I think I’m going crazy.

The patient is a 20-something-year-old MD/PhD student with a history of extensive schooling now presenting with frustration at her current lack of progress consistent with being stuck in a rut.



Scientists in the EU are designing robot nurses.  Looks like they'll be pretty cute.  And that they'll be taking care of the more tedious tasks (like mopping up spills and guiding visitors to patient rooms), hopefully freeing up human nurses for more pressing patient matters.  Unless, of course, they malfunction…


iPhone > girlfriend?  Well, yeah if my girlfriend is as super-fugly and super-psycho as my brother-in-law's.  And I'm assuming that's why an informal survey found that 1 in 8 guys would trade their girlfriends for the latest and greatest tech toys.


A new study shows that more Americans are drinking soda at breakfast.  Soda for breakfast?  Gross.  I guess it beats coffee though.  The article also mentions that about half of the US population drinks 4 or more sodas a day.  Damn.  I used to have one soda a day and feared for my health enough to cut soda pretty much completely out of my diet.  Diabetes nation, here we come.
