It’s been a long time since I wrote in this category; Life in Medilag has been really boring. Hence, nothing to tell you guys.
September is probably the best time I have had in med school. Apart from being my birth month and all, we had almost 3 weeks lecture free!!! 3 awesome weeks of lounging and reading for exams. Apparently, we ended all our third incourses in Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry almost simultaneously.
The incourses were ok. If I must say! With the exception of my biochemistry tho. METAB incourse. Like the hardest freakin’ thing. I coulda sworn that the questions were in Latin!
On to the fourth course then on to Professional Exam
The Big Guy. My very first professional exam. Eerily called Pros/MB.
I’ve different many tales of Pros. Of people who aced all their incourses and fared woefully in Pros. On the better side, people who didn’t pass a single incourse and aced Pros. Or people who failed all their incourses and even Pros and go on to ace the resit.
None is my portion sha. My incourses have been..well..uhm…None of your business 😀 but im looking forward to acing my first professional exams. I can’t even think of resiting..not to talk of repeating. It scares me.
So my MB should be in December/January. The time is not certain but whenever, I have to b can tale ready to kill ém cuz I’m gonna be examined on everything I’ve learnt since January!! Bloody hell!!!
I can’t even remember how to draw the brachial plexus *sigh*
Seeing as fourth incourse should last about six weeks, and we’re almost 3 weeks in, The finals might just be in December .
Anywho, I have to quit tweeting, blogging and any other side thing so I can take studying seriously. So I guess this is gonna be my last post in a really long while.
When I get back, I’ll probably have my own 30 day challenge. If my brain cells are not dried out that is. I really love what Qurr is doing with his. Very well thought out and all.
That should be all.
Hope to come back soon.
Thanks for reading.
PS: I don’t mind topic suggestions for my 30 day challenge. You can drop them in the comment box or tweet them at @Kemmiiii.

Thanks 😀
Ciao.

Hey People!! I know I have come again and thanks for coming again; But I have to start off by appreciating you all, Thank you for the Comments, Tweets, RTs, Commendations, Honest Criticism and all. I am genuinely overwhelmed. I love y’all.. God go make una bigger o!!.

In case you Carried last on my last post written by @Mizz_Starzz see it here

So you asked for the boring life of a Med Student…That I shall give you..

All errors are totally @Dhamyhan’s fault.

*************

This Post was meant to come up yesterday night and I was meant to tell you how I wrote my anatomy CA on the Head and the Neck which was actually okay but I can’t say if I’ll ace it cuz I was very sure of acing my CA on the lower limb but the result proved me wrong…

Have you ever been in such a situation;

The Efficientos of the class announce; Blah Blah Result is out!! Then you go…OMG! OMG!! OMG!!! Then..

On your way to the notice board —-> 😀

When you see people coming back —-> 🙂

You see that brilliant dude —-> 😐

You see the general performance —-> 😦

Your result —-> 😥

Hehe…Noticed how I used you and your?

I remember one time @bYbaaaa and I were on our way to the notice board too. This particular Alhaja..ever smiling and all was coming back, Her expression…PRICELESS..Dare greet her and chop hot slap.

Well, I was too lazy to post last night. Don’t lemme bore you with the details of how I slept early and still woke up a Few minutes Past 8am and I had a Lecture for 8am. Osinubi for that matter. I survived.

Well, I dunno how to arrange everything I want to tell you guys. Lemme do it Chronologically….My Lord!! that red line did not show!! I can spell!!!

In this Medilag ehn, its as if all the departments plan to release result upon result when there is an impending in-course. See what the physiology department did last Friday…Anatomy CA was this week and they decided to release our second in-course results. If I must say, That is the worst general performance I have seen in my entire life!!  But bone o! That exam was hard and the time was not even it. Anyway the Lecturers told us to expect the worst but it was the “worstest”.

Why do you want to know my score? Na you pay my school fees??

Kuro jare!! #Movingon

At this point, I can decide to beg those mamas in the church always calling me “doctor” to stop o! I never write first MB.

Then we have Biochemistry in-course in two weeks, which is sadly a day before my birthday 😦 . Anatomy Department decided to add more salt. They released the second in-course result today..Another cycle of depression.

*sigh* but what can man do? You will read, read, read, Turn to Iced Fish inside the cold room, Become furniture inside the library, Drink all the coffee your money can buy and still not pass, Im telling you; It is not life.

I’m not talking about myself o! Ehen!

But Anatomy lab has been fun lately, We have been dissecting the skull and all..

YES!! While cutting through the calvarium of our cadaver, Sukanmi used the saw to cut my hand by mistake 😦 I have taken appropriate shots and drugs for it tho but I can’t lie to you! I was scared sh*ttless! What if the cadaver died of AIDS or something. My stupid friend @bYbaaaa couldn’t care less..She started telling me all my stuff she was gonna inherit. So much for love.

That Aside, You know how I told you My cadaver has not been really helpful? Well I guess I can take that back now cuz The cadaver has the best brain so far!! ^_^ Other tables had rotten brains… Do I smell a SUB? People started propanding theories like he didn’t use his brain well that is why..well..warreva! We have a good brain…This is not a gbagaun o.

Then Today, I started wondering why the Histology attendants like lying. They will tell you “you will see the large lumen between the interstitium and the medulla” (Don’t google this..I wrote crap) But when you get to the Microscope all you will see is Pink or grey with some dots in the middle.. And we have to identify these things in the Steeple Chase o. *sigh* it is well.

There you have it…The really boring life of a grossly lazy Medico.

PS: If you did not take the hint, My birthday is coming!! Y’all that promised to take me to the shrine <_< I have taken screenshots of your comments. They will be used against you in the court of law (inside joke).

Also Help a sisteh out..

You see? I’m humble 🙂

You should Follow Wana‘s 30 day challenge! Its really interesting.

Footnotes.

Calvarium –  Upper part of the cranium that surrounds the cranial cavity containing the brain.

Brain – Really?? No..Really??

Histology – Study of tissues. (Histo = Tissue)

Before you read, I must warn you! This is a really stupid post

Raymond Caddy
Dr. Abraham said you will be our teacher
He said we should be nice to you
Care for you
Dine with you
Sleep with you
Dress nicely to see you
Discriminate against you not
We did everything
But what Did you pay us back with?
The beginning of our woes was the absence of your Cephalic vein
Next was a deflated right lung
Rotten Right leg
Pungent Smell
No Inguinal Ring
Wrinkled Penis
Hard ass Feet
Hole in your right cheek
Hard Scalp
‘Kudo gave you a hair Friction
We still can’t get through your thick skull (literally)
We have been through thick and thin together
Yet you have selfishly refused to show us your mysteries
We appreciate your Efforts though
You were so muscular
We considered ourselves butchers
Muscles with no vessels
Our journey has almost come to an end..
We thank you for your showing us the way…not

lol..Like I said, This is a really stupid post…It just came to my head..
This is about my Anatomy Cadaver, I just Christened him Raymond Caddy (no offense to all Raymonds), that was the first name that hit me…

Raymond has been my Anatomy specimen since the beginning of the year and he has not been really helpful..even though I know it was d mutilation of the morticians that made his Right Lung Collapse and most of his
vessels missing (or he might have been a heavy ganjah smoker) ,I still blame him….!

We really could not make anything out of his body…Well, we saw his Sciatic nerve (the biggest nerve in the body)..after that and his bulky muscles, he has been pretty useless.

BTW he has a bullet hole in his cheek…I did not say he was a thief o! Ehen!

I also wish i got the cadaver with the Rasta hair 8)

First off! I want to appreciate people that have been encouraging me..you guys rock!!

No! Im not here to RANT! And This is not #The RantingsOfaGrosslyLazyMedico because Im lazy but not grossly lazy.. You feel me? 8) Kenny You are still sick for that comment..

Anyways, before I digress, Its about my week..HECTIC WEEK..

So I had my Physiology incourse on Tuesday! Yeah the one that I did not know the difference betweeen Tubular resorption and Tubular secretion..I did it sha and Im not gonna tell you how it was :P..Just because my First incourse was a sad story!  I was so happy with myself at the end of the exam but the result was an apology..

I was so heartbroken it felt as if…the more you read, the more you fail! I wont let that happen again tho..I will keep on reading…I wish I could read like some people tho… “read without ceasing’ Im sure if i try it i would drop dead! o well! Different strokes for different folks! BTW its not everybody that reads that passes, so also, It’s not everybody that dosent read that fails some people just have to listen in class #darrisol!

Sha Wednesday came, I had my problem based learning (PBL) presentation in Anatomy…PBL is this cool new way of learning..It involves giving the students a problem to solve..like in our case, They will give us a Patients case.. and the patients history, so we have to go about the anatomy of the affected part and then give a diagnosis..its meant to be cool but the circumstances surrounding it make it uncool so i’m not always interested….

Gehn Gehn! The next day was anatomy incourse! Curse my alarm clock! I got home that fateful Wednesday afternoon after the PBL ish and I was so tired, So i made up my mind to read a little, sleep around 7 and wake up at 12 to read..Omo mehn! I woke up at 6.30..I was so mad..Anyway I cannot blame anybody…I dint tell anyone I was having an exam the next day..even if..its everyman for himself..

The exam came, it went obviously..I wont tell you how it was too :p but it is well..

The highlight of the week!! Steeple Chase Yesterday (Friday) I’m sure you must have heard very sad stories about steeple chase but i’m not gonna paint a sad picture here, I will just tell you how it goes..

Well, steeplechase is an anatomy practical where there are 100 stations with different questions.. and there are a few resting spots where you can sit down..As the name implies, Each student is at a station or a resting spot…You have to answer your question in 30 seconds and after 30 seconds,the bell goes and you move on to the next…its quite hard tho..

They pin muscles, tie nerves veins, arteries and all sorts and they will ask you to identify them…There are also histology slides you have to identify which can be quite confusing i tell you because everything is pink and the ones I crammed did not even sho face..It is well..What I love about steeple chase is that even if you dunno it, you can write rubbish cuz there is no negative marking ^_^

And I met @MsSensitivity yesterday 🙂 So nice ^_^

*******************************************************************

PS: I also met @bule_jr for a short while in the morning (Friday) before my steeplechase…he is so nice ^_^ ..Hope to see him  more often..He is also a relationship blogger..see his blog here …I cant believe I forgot that 😦

So Im awake on This Monday Morning…

I’m not reading, I’m not Tweeting, I’m not praying, I’m just here typing this and updating my itunes library…Jah bless PHCN.

I’m doing this with guilt in my mind cuz I have an exam this morning which i havent even read for!!

GAS202.

I might even have medical psychology…Heaven knows.

The very annoying thing is that we did not have a single lecture..eyo kan pere!! in GAS how do they expect us to pass?? ehn??

O ya mi lenu o! As per omo rere, I sharply went to buy the hand out from our friendly neighbourhood photocopy people..

To my disappointment, the note was not even relevant to GAS202..i know this cuz i bought the past question too. The man even Gba’d me on top! 😦 I just calculated when I got home and I cannot start fighting with somebody on top =N=100…Next time i will not be a maga!! The questions remind me of social studies even though I cant answer them..

Its a pity though..In the so called University of first choice…but what can I do? Afi ki’n cram ki’n pass exam yen ni mehn! 

Enough of the ranting..I have resorted to fate and im gonna take the exam as it comes..

Apart from GAS and the probable Medical psychology, I have anatomy incourse and steeplechase on Thurday and Friday respectively. What a week eh?

Lemme even take a time out to explain the concept of incourses cuz its really annoying when I have to explain to each person over and over again..I would refer anyone that asks again here.

Well, In Med School (pre-clinical at least) , we have our Final exam at the end of each academic year. These exams are called professional exams (pros) or MB.

Hence, to make it easier, we have an exam at the end of each module of a course. And all courses have 4 modules; so we write four incourses..

The incourses make up about 30% of the final exam..depending on the course tho.

 Basically, Incourses just make things easier for us even if we can see it that way.

The fact that this Anatomy Incourse is gonna have an essay part is giving me the creeps!!

*sigh* God help me.

I cant wait to graduate I swear! Please don’t remind me of how much time I have left!…i know people that derive pleasure from this 😦
