Hi! How's uni and everything going ? =)
Anonymous

Hullo, not bad actually, I was expecting this semester to be absolute death but it hasn’t really turned out to be that stressful!

Although I should point out that I watch all my lectures at home or in the library and only bother going to Parkville if I need to either hand something in or attend pracs and tutes. 

This semester is pretty memory heavy but I’m still enjoying it. 

HSF is a bit of a mixed bag, it’s our core that tries to ‘integrate’ anatomy, physio and pharm but does a terrible job in doing it. Like, really terrible. There’s no half-assed integration or whatever, they use almost EXACTLY the same slides that are in the Science subjects but are sometimes taught a lot more shittily. And they don’t give anything to help us review so I’ve had to grab lectures and questions from the Science equivalents. Anatomy is probably the best taught part of the subject, we get to view specimens and although some people get queezy they are definitely a highlight! Physiology however has been less than satisfactory and they only teach very basic Pharm stuff, so that’s ripped out lots of important lectures from Anatomy and Physio. 

TL;DR everybody hates how HSF has been coordinated. 

Microbes and my other Pharm subject are taught soo soo soo much better and have really cool pracs. Particularly microbes, we get presented case studies and pretty much have to work out what organism is causing the infection. Which means handling shit sample but oh well. 

Annndd then there’s GAMSAT UK in two weeks. I had to spread out my prep and do like one full exam every week once uni started, but I’m really happy with my practise scores so far because they’ve consistently been quite higher than when I last did them. But uhhh I’m just hoping I don’t choke when I sit it. 

Funnily enough I thought I would be really stressed because of all of this but it seems as if I’ve managed my time a bit better. :D

Have you forgotten about me? Why haven't you spoken to me?
Anonymous

Several reasons anon:

*I don’t ever use Facebook chat, Whatsapp, Skype, Viber or any other IM unless absolutely required
*I seldom initiate conversations because sometimes they make me feel more annoyed or just plain worse
*I actually rarely go to uni

You may have passed my mind at points but I’m just not that much of a talker bro

Ermahgerd apparently Emails of Death have come out for this year’s GEMSAS admissions.

"There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them and was crazy and didn’t have to; but if he didn’t want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
“That’s some catch, that Catch-22,” he observed.
“It’s the best there is,” Doc Daneeka agreed."
