There's always one...

Sometimes I really wonder how some people get into pharmacy school. Their inability to derive simple things really makes me wonder. This is why I hate group work. I hate having my grade depend on whomever I get placed with, and let's face it, there are lots of stupid people, even in pharmacy school. Since my grade is on the line... and I have trust issues with most of the people I was placed with, my friend and I pretty much ended up doing all the work. Now most of this group I was placed in had no problem with it. It's in class work, and they sit back and listen as we go through it. I don't mind, because I want the A.

Except you always have that one stupid person that thinks they are a fucking genius! Granted it could be said that person could be me, but I admit when I know something and when I don't, while this person is generally wrong. I do not regard myself as a genius, but I know if I know my shit or not. This person however loves to chime in with their own poorly derived theories and doesn't even come close to the correct answer and continues to argue with me. Luckily another person in my group is intelligent and backs me up.

The best argument was whether or not the 'patient' had respiratory or metabolic acidosis. It was respiratory, but this person really had to ask repeatedly if it was metabolic. Four of us agreed it was respiratory, but for some reason they could not let that fact go! I wanted to punch her in the face because I just wanted to finish it so we could leave.

On another problem it stated in the patient symptoms that the patient was dehydrated. Same person while we were discussing it, asked if we were sure the patient was dehydrated. Holy mother of pharmacy, IT SAYS SO RIGHT HERE! I really wish I could duct tape her mouth shut just so we can get our work done.

There are more, but I need to get back to studying. I just needed to get this off my chest haha.

No Sympathy

A bit ago I was out in the city with a lot of my Rx school friends and it also happened to be the same weekend that my friends were in town! With my time management skills and whatnot I decided it would be awesome to hang out with them all at the same time. Now the group of friends from school was probably say.... 50 people at a crowded bar, and my friends were 3. I gave up trying to drunkenly introduce them after about the first 10 because let's face it, no one is going to remember shit considering how trashed half of us were.

When my friends saw the state of us, and I explained that we study hard and play harder she looked at me with disbelief. "NO SYMPATHY FOR YOU! I thought pharm school would be hard, but apparently you guys have plenty of fun along with it!" Psh, just because we know how to party doesn't mean we don't take school seriously! Or that it's easy. A lot of the PS3's that were there are amazing students that I wish I could be! It was a crazy night, I was running all around that bar and talking to so many people it's such a blur.

We still had an amazing time though. Everyone was feelin' good with some good ol' EtOH and some good music. I was... a bit too hammered for my own good. There was a lot of dancing and people were grabbing me and hugging me. It was very strange. The boys really love to umm... grind, or just flat out hump people as their form of dancing. Seriously, if I don't know how I would react to that if I were straight. Haha. For me, I just flat out didn't care. Granted I've never had so many penises pressed up against me, but it was an experience to say the least. One boy even kissed me in his drunken stupor.

Apparently in my drunken state my reaction is to stop all forms of moving, stand there with a stupid look on my face and... pull out the gay card. "Yo bro (yes I talk like a dumbass when drunk) I'm gay. You know this, and I know this. Be cool."

Why do I say the things I do? I blame it on the alcohol. I got lots of love that night from everyone though, and by love I mean squeals and hugs.

I love my school, I am loving my life, I just hate the exams. It just ruins everything haha.

Speaking of school, I am on my way to the Dean's List as long as I don't fuck up my finals!! This is exciting for me because I have always been a mediocre student, so making it onto Dean's list was be awesome. Especially since none of our classes are curved, so I will really feel like I earned it.

My brain does hurt though. Studying sucks.
