Blogging Out in a Timely Fascian
Before my Gross Anatomy class that started this week I had barely even dissected a frog, but I now find myself elbow deep in human fascia on a regular basis. Of course, as I like to say, I find it all very “fascianating.” But while digging around in a bunch of dead bodies is educationally edifying, there is no doubt that I’d rather be spending my summer down in Texas. I’ve come to realize that my summers as I used to know them are basically over because I’ll have one PT commitment after the other until I finally get my job which, unfortunately, does not end in May and pick back up again in late August like I’ve been classically conditioned to do. The amount of material in this course is astounding, and the smell of the formaldehyde and embalming fluid mixture is enough to put one over the edge. Some people have also been told that I should expect to never be able to look at roast beef the same way again, but I think they underestimate my unconditional love for meat.
Marielos and I have got to email each other a little bit and she says they miss me too and will always remember me, especially at meal times. Well, at least that’s something, right? Oh, how I miss those magical Marielos meals… I don’t think I could ever get tired of the frozen pizzas I have reverted back to up here, but I think I may have bigger problems than palate dissatisfaction if I keep that up for too long. So I’m going to end this blog before that day comes! That’s right, the time has finally come for me to “blog out.” I hope you have enjoyed reading about my experiences as much as I have enjoyed writing about them. I don’t anticipate returning to the blog world any time soon, but it was fun while it lasted. Have a great rest of the summer, everybody!
