Last night, we all went to a fundraiser for MEDICOS Nicaragua (Fall Ball). Basically, it was a high school dance for med students, but fun nonetheless!
(haha Jade and I did a prom pose)
I almost bailed out on going to clinic this morning since I knew last night would be a late one, but I decided to go anyway (since this is one of very few free weekends). I am SO glad I decided to go! I absolutely LOVED Paul Hom Asian Clinic (my favorite so far). The patients were amazing, the students were so nice, and the doctors were really fun to work with! Today was a musculoskeletal day, so we had an orthopedist doctor there and a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor. They were so awesome to talk to! Today was really cool because I really enjoyed dealing with musculoskeletal problems. I wasn't really considering going into ortho, and to be honest, I had never even heard of PM&R, but I am a little interested in both now. It excites me to be interested in more things than just OB/Gyn. I wanna keep some options open, ya know? And to top off a great day at clinic, I even got to learn how to draw blood on an MS2! I'm not gonna lie, I was really scared. After that whole fainting incident, I have been scared that I am a big wuss deep down, but I did it! And I got it right the first time! I guess I am not a total failure :P I would definitely consider this another "medical school milestone".
I have been feeling a teeny bit homesick, so I am going to Apple Hill on Sunday with my family! Can't wait to go, I haven't been in YEARS!
