Med Chem is useless.

I hate med chem (medicinal chemistry). I have hated o-chem for quite some time... and med chem really has not helped me like it any better.

First off, I find this course extremely useless. It's not on the NAPLEX and unless I want to pursue industry (which I do not) I am most likely never ever going to use this again.

Secondly, I don't know why I just don't get this stuff. I mean I have a general understanding, but it seems I falter when I try and put it all together. When I see functional groups I tend to miss the whole thing, calling something that's supposed to be an amide a ketone and a secondary amine. I just look at the whole drug structure and it seems like a giant cluster-f-ck of things. And metabolic reactions? Blah. For the most part I get it... then there are times where I feel like a dumbass.

I just feel like this course should be an elective for the 1% of my class that actually wants to go into industry. Please, tell me how this course can be useful for any other branch of pharmacy that does not deal with drug research/development.

Well... back to studying functional groups.

So... I am not sure you would want to publish this comment. But the song from Vast (One More Day) that I was talking about on my blog...? I am obsessed it due to the series "Queer as Folk".

I am absolutely bonkers about Justin and Brian... Here is the video that pushed me into LOVING the men big time (as if I needed the push LOL).

I am starting all the 5 seasons on Netflix tomorrow.
