You’re interesting. But also difficult, time-consuming, and demanding.
I’m not sure it’s reasonable for you to make me memorize all these classes of antibiotics and their spectrum of activity against the oh so many microorganisms. I am but a mere mortal!
But you’re also really cool. A bacteria needs PABA to make folic acid? Let’s make a PABA-look-alike to confuse the bacteria and deprive itself of folate. (aka, Sulfonamides <3)
And etc. x 1000000 other drugs
Yes, you’re awesome. I just wish I had a superhuman brain to absorb your greatness.
I sleep for 10 hours. Then I wake up, eat, lounge around. And then continue on with a 4 hour nap.
14 hours?! That’s more than all the sleep I got during my past exam week. Combined.
Recharging is the best. This entire semester, I feel like I am perpetually a device on 2% battery life, only managing to sleep and restore up to maybe 30% a night. Then I subsequently drain myself again from studying, which forces to take an accidental nap to recharge to 15%; but that leads me to feeling guilty about wasting precious studying time so I end up pulling a semi-allnighter… which brings me back to the 2% struggling dark-eye-circled panda of a student that I have become.
But now I am back at 100% :) Well-fed, well-rested, and happy.
I applied to a 0-6 year program from high school, so I am unfamiliar with the process. However, check out this blog post:
Or if anyone from the pharmacy tumblr community wants to chime in?
Good luck! Keep me updated on your journey!!
Sorry for the slightly unexpected hiatus. I had to block myself from Tumblr (along with other social media) because I realized this spring semester was kicking my butt. I don’t think anyone ever conveyed just how hard the P2 spring semester was, or perhaps I was in denial.
My life for the past few months has been a blur. A sleep-deprived blur. I vaguely remember chemical structures, treatment algorithms, antibiotic spectrums, and pharmacokinetic calculations…
Right now I’m on spring break so I’ll be updating more. Gosh it feels good to be reunited with Tumblr.
