It’s been a while since I made Custard Purin. Made this late last night when my sister was pressuring me to make it. Watching My Boss My Hero may have also influenced me into making this. The Purin they have on that drama is like something to die for(For those who haven’t seen the drama, they sell ONLY 12 Purins at lunch so everyone in the school fights to get their hands on the BEST purin) . I’m determined to make my purin as awesome as theirs. Searched up a few purin recipes to see how they differed from the one I use, so I can trial and error and then formulate the perfect recipe. Hopefully when you guys come over again, I’ll have perfected my purin.
Came back home after my anatomy lab practical (which is the highlight of the week no doubt at all) to see a few packages for ME! The books I ordered from bookdepositery late Wednesday Night came together, and so did my All Round Excellence Medal. Haven’t got any special medals or trophies since I got a Ruse Bronze Award, so its somewhat a good confidence booster in a way. I’m glad the letters and award weren’t addressed from former Premier Nathan Rees., but Kristina Keneally. Bummer they don’t give trophies out for these anymore. The medals fail in comparison with them.
Today in the lab practical, I had a fiddle with the Knee, Pelvis, Foot, Hands, and the main focus being the Glenoid Humeral Joint, Acromio Clavicular and Sterno Clavicular Joints and the attached ligaments which were so hard to find under bits of muscle. Even after wearing gloves, my hands still smell of the chemical they use to preserve the specimens. Was talking to a Second Year Physio and he said that we don’t get labs in Second Year. That makes me sad
And if anyone is free tomorrow between 11-1, let’s go for lunch?
Disorientated was the state I was in before I bought the blue binder folder in the morning. Cannot possibly be organised without one or else you’ll spend forever finding the lecture notes you want. And speaking of lecture notes, I will be wanted for killing so many trees in the coming years to come. Look at how fat my folder is now.
In a way, I’m still disorientated in that I’m not getting ahead of the work. I’ve got lots of Health Sociology Readings to do, learn a gazillion functions of bone bumps and so much more thats just going to keep piling on top of me . To analogise this, I’ve felt that we’ve learnt a terms of high school work in 2 lectures. This is when I regret wasting so many hours during the first week doing nothing! Hopefully after I get my textbooks for Anatomy and Body Systems, will I be able to return into state of total control.
Tomorrow is our laboratory practical on the organ that keeps you alive, the heart. I’m so excited.
Friday is my day off university and I use it to sleep in, gain extra 2-3sleep hours. Quentin came over and dumped all his Japanese Beginner Notes and let me scab a few jdramas from a massive stack of dvds he got from his jdrama fanatic friend. Afterwards, went to Carlo Court to put tutoring ad for Jap but for some strange reason they didn’t allow me because they have some language school and that I would somehow steal 100% of their business. AND ALSO, WHEN DID THEY HAVE A LANGUAGE SCHOOL IN CARLO COURT?!?! What the hell, but my fault for not being aggressive enough and challenge because I could’ve probably won the battle cause the customer service desk lady wasn’t even sure if I could put it up and ask two other people from the centre who were like, YES ITS FINE and then decided to call a high up or something. Carlo Village noticeboard will have to do. After such disapointment, headed off to Eastwood to a Cafe where Quentin ordered ‘avagadro’ and a ‘panininininini’ and I had a cappucino waiting for Borbor. Then we decided to wait till 2 so we could have ‘cheap’ afternoon meals. Cheryl sat table next to us but completely barred us (after the greetings)even with Borbor calling her. Then we split ways, trained to Redfern and walked through the not so scary streets to USyd. Met up with Timmy and trekked our way to HK Ward Gym.
Been two years since I did Kendo. Remembered and Forgot certain things but they came back to me pretty quick. Substantial numbers because it was the start of the beginner course. Quite a number of seniors, around 10, with a few junior members. Timmy and I have a long way on our Kendo Journey. Will we get past the ‘drop out stage’? Something like 80% of people who do kendo end up dropping out. If you ever wanna see me at main campus, I’ll walk past the junk of metal near the Law Building around 3:30-3:45, hoping to see someone! And if you’re interested, come and do Kendo with us, 4-6 Friday HK Ward Gym. Its free for the next few weeks so try it out for yourself.
Little bit about the photo, what bk201 is holding and whats behind him is the envelope opener I bought in Japan back in 2007. Getting more envelopes these days so its actually quite handy.
Today was the most interesting day I’ve had at university. Put on my pristine lab coat (turns pink in certain lights) and walked into the anatomy laboratories . The laboratory had the same feel as a morgue in TV and films. As we split into our groups, walked past exposed dead arms, no squirmish feelings. Tutor showed us the ones in our designated area, showing veins, arteries, nerves and tendons. It still had fingernails and skin on the hand. Then we were basically revising we did on the lectures, except hands on, which helped immensely. Epicondyles, Trochlea, Capitulum, Bicipital Groove, Anatomical Head, Glenoid Fossa, Greater and Lesser Tubercle, Coracoid Process, Acromion Process , Sternal End, Trapazoid Line and the names go on. Had trouble identifying certain parts but got there in the end. Also had X-rays to enforce features of the ______,_________ and ______ .(Fill em in Med Students =p) Can’t wait for the next practical. Next one is Tuesday and it would seem we will be playing with hearts. Would seem no one fainted at the sight of the dead arm. Those rumours of people fainting is a lie.
Coming out of the station with Gabriel, was saying how we would never bump into Ruse people. Moment laters walking to bus stop, we see SY doing her maths homework. That was cool, then on the bus, Jason Caw(I think thats how you spell it) from the grade above caught the same bus home. Talked about both our grades, our respective courses. He’s UWS Meding with Leegan,Anna,Honing, Adrian and Julie. I find it cool that we’re both on the same level when it comes to Functional Muscoskeletal Anatomy. I’m glad I didn’t get my mum to pick me up from Parra .
You all know of Red Cream Soda, but maybe not Brown Cream Soda? Well Gabe introduced it to me, so I went and bought one after our bio-mechanic lecture which we were thinking of wagging (we should’ve). Similar taste with the normal Red Cream Soda with a hint of Vanilla Coke Flavour. Should try it.
