Paralyze resistance with persistence – Woody Hayes

May 21, 2013 § 5 Comments

That’s me lately! Persistent. It’s almost 19:00 here and I’ve been comfortably nestled in this chair since 8:30 this morning – except for a little break where I tried to take a nap. Let’s just say that didn’t work out…

I’m either suffering a sort of student Stockholm-syndrome or I’m actually really enjoying myself. It’s easy to do when you have little goodies like this hidden within anatomy – an anastomosis (joining of two blood vessels) called “Crown of Death”!


By setting off so much time to prepare for my anatomy exam (about 11 days), I’ve given myself the opportunity to really absorb the material. I sleep 7-8 hours a night and study from when I wake up, until I go to bed. I haven’t really left the house…I even scheduled a grocery home delivery through Tesco. For 900,- HUF (about 20 NOK or $4) they’ll deliver everything – and it all costs the same as it does in the store. We’re approaching true hermit status!

Yesterday Jannie came over to join me in my study cave. She has her exam on Thursday, so is understandably a bit more nervous.


Charlotte sent me this picture yesterday afternoon. It made my day! Only Charlotte can keep such amazing humor so close to an exam – hers is tomorrow! Wish her luck!!


If you are interested in where I got the drawings for the Crown of Death, it is from the end of this video (which can also be found on youtube). It is amazing for understanding the inguinal region and inguinal and femoral hernias.

    I just found your blog through and started to read around 10pm, now 4AM in the morning, writing you this message. I really enjoyed yr blog, yr perception about life and especially yr habit of collecting quotes. I like yr attitude towards life and nature. You have done wonderful job in writing yr experiences and thank you for sharing with world. I am a chemist thinking to apply for med school in Budapest. What organic chemistry book they use at yr university

      Hi Srinu!

      Thank you so much! What a huge compliment 😀 I am so happy that you enjoy my blog and really hope that it helps you if you are planning on applying to school in Hungary. Feel free to ask me anything you are wondering about.

      As for the organic chemistry book, I have to say that I didn’t use one. There are recommended books, but there are no required books for any class. Instead, we get topic lists and are supposed to cover that material on our own, using whatever materials we want. The first semester of the first year is a general chemistry and organic chemistry review (with a medical twist) and then we have biochemistry for the following 3 semesters. I purchased Zumdahl before the semester and didn’t open it once. There is a school issued organic chemistry book, but it is pretty basic. We used mostly the lecture materials and then looked up the individual topics from the topic lists online.

      Thanks again for your comment!

  • […] My last topic was inguinal canal!! Such an amazing coincidence after posting about it in my blog last week. You never know what is going to pop […]
