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.
