The Queen Has Died

It doesn’t matter she wasn’t our monarch. She has been Queen Elizabeth my entire life, she’s been Queen Elizabeth my parents’ entire lives. Queen Elizabeth has always been queen of England for three generations. She has been a figure in the world, of everybody’s world, for all of our collective lives. A piece of the unchanging background that is our Earth has disappeared. That does not go unnoticed or unmourned.

Family Space Camp

Don’t want to leave. But there’s nothing else to do here. We had fun and frustration, too much waiting, but the second day was much better because I knew what to expect time and food wise, so I was able to plan and handle everything so much better. Overall a good time!

Medical School at the Back of the Pack

So I wanted to make a video about what it’s like in medical school at the back of the pack. Then I thought, it’d be a whole lot easier if there was already a video out there for like racing or something that I could adapt / meme. Instead of a video, I found this. And now I have no need to make a video or write a really long post.
This is it right here. This is Medical School.

Taught last week that I forgot to post:
Prof today said we are expected to get one of the following in our lifetimes. “These are things that just happen” to humans. They are common. They aren’t prevented by living healthy lifestyles (though they are more common for people with underlying conditions or who don’t live healthy lifestyles):
- Bowel obstruction
- Apendicitis
- Kidney stone(s)
- Gall stone(s)
