I am so sorry :(

I didn't forget this. Oh no... but things have been really complicated. Remember when I said that by Christmas the worst part would be over? Well, we were wrong. Terribly wrong.

Things have gone even worst after that. The ones "managing" (not even sure if this word exists) our year aren't ready for it. Things have been pretty chaotic these last months. Starting by Imagiology, which was completely renewed from last year, it gave us some pretty bad headaches back on the days - oh, and by the way, I failed the exam, even though I don't know why... the only good thing was the work, I managed to get an average of 10 at the subject. After that, Pathology, which was the most deorganized subject I ever had, with teachers (yes, teachers) skipping classes just because they could and forgetting that we're *students* on the process of learning, not *doctors* with many years of experience. The results have been pathetic.

Also, because of our crazy schedules, we started having exams every *week*, instead of the normal two, so I just have like three days (five, when we had those 14 chapters to read) to study for an exam. Like you see, it's been complicated - I'm starting to hate this word. I'm already taking some supplements to fight stress, or I think I would have been crazy by now. 

On the other hand, our teachers finally realized that things were really bad (they had almost 20 people in the risk of losing the year), so they decided to help us a bit. Our last two exams were very easy. But they already said that those results were a shame (HELLO, you were the ones who repeated the questions, remember? O.o) , so I don't even want to imagine the final Pathology exam this Friday. *shivers*

To finish this rambling in peace, my colleagues (who can be so adorable to some things and so stupid to others) asked to delay the Geriatrics exam - it should have been today -, so after Easter we'll only have two final exams to do, plus two other "normal" exams, four paper works and two presentations, in the middle of our traineeship in the hospital.


So, I'm so sorry I didn't manage to appear in here sooner than this and sorry for not posting comments on your ljs neither. Maybe in summer things will get a little easier. Because right now... oh boy, I'm happy for each day I manage to survive. =/

Hope everything is feeling great! Kisses to all and thanks for listening.

I'm off to Pathology. Heart failure, here I go! =P

So, I went to the movies...

(I'm sorry for the poster in portuguese, all the other ones were too big)
So, I went to the movies and now I'm annoying everyone because that's what I do everytime I'm hugely surprised with a movie! XD I wasn't very interested in watching Agora because I'm not a fan of historical movies and the information I had available wasn't very enthusiastic, but oh boy, what a movie!! It will make you think deeply about religion and the human nature, which, to be honest, is somehting that I love.

Besides that, it has a wonderful art direction, a fantastic soundtrack and great performances. Another thing I love: descovering talent in people I never heard of! ^^ Oh, and I had to control my nerd side once I saw George Harris in there, because I totally wanted to scream "KINGSLEY!!" once he appeared! XD

Oh, and that ending!! Jesus Christ, I almost passed out at the ending! O.O It was something so... I don't know what to say about it, my friends freaked out after it and we spend the entire night talking about it, but it was just perfect. One of best endings ever!

Can't wait to have this one at home. *-*

Oh well... I should start making movie reviews, with lots of spoilers and so on. Maybe in Summer.

Enjoy the trailer:

Handle With Care

(by Jodi Picoult)

"What if it was someone’s fault?"

When Charlotte and Sean O’Keefe’s daughter, Willow, is born with severe osteogenesis imperfecta, they are devastated – she will suffer hundreds of broken bones as she grows, a lifetime of pain. As the family struggles to make ends meet to cover Willow’s medical expenses, Charlotte thinks she has found an answer. If she files a wrongful birth lawsuit against her ob/gyn for not telling her in advance that her child would be born severely disabled, the monetary payouts might ensure a lifetime of care for Willow. But it means that Charlotte has to get up in a court of law and say in public that she would have terminated the pregnancy if she’d known about the disability in advance – words that her husband can’t abide, that Willow will hear, and that Charlotte cannot reconcile. And the ob/gyn she’s suing isn’t just her physician – it’s her best friend. (summary and image taken from here)

This book was my mom and sister's birthday present. It's a loving and tender story about a family like so many others around us. Like you can understand for sure, I can't tell you much about it without spoiling you, but you should take my advice and try it. It will make you think a LOT about many things - things that you probably don't think about too much.

And get ready for the end. I bet you'll never predict what is going to happen in the final pages.

Enjoy it! ;)

The first weeks

First weeks at college 2010.

Well, they were nasty, I think.

People had already told us that things would be terrible this year, but by Christmas the worst part would be over. I guess they weren't lying. I started 2010 with exams on Friday, I had final exams on Anatomical Pathology and Microbiology on the second week, and an oral exam last Wednesday. Microbiology was a huge surprise to me. Forgetting the third exam I had really good grades, I think. Let's see if the final exam was as easy as I think it was. AP, on the other hand, was a disgrace, like I thought it would be. At least I didn't fail at any exam - I think.

And you have no idea how terrible it was to have that oral exam. First, it was really bad to have an exam about Histology, because we have no basis on it. But it was much worse once the teachers told us that we would lose all our points if we failed it. Which means, we would have a zero (!!) on Anatomical Pathology. I spend four days terrible nervous about it, everyone was crazy on Tuesday, and I barely slept that night. Fortunately, the exam went fine - though I had only one diagnosis correct. Oh, who cares, I just needed one. XD

Wednesday was such a perfect day. After the exam I felt so good with myself, I cleaned up the house, I read a book and I went to the movies with my friends. Unfortunately, Thursday was terrible. We had some problems with one of the subjects, but it's a little complicated to tell you about them right now. We're still trying to work on this, hope things will get better. I just know that I got really stressed (again), cried (again) all night and wished (again) I had never applied to med school.  

My schedules changed. I spend the entire weekend without touching at a book (well, school book, I mean XD) because I won't have exams next week. I'll have to present a work about MRI and TC, but I'll try not to think much about it. This was a really good weekend.

Oh, and I found out I'm going to have another cousin. Yeay! =D

Well, I think I'm going now. Wish you all a great week and have fun, people!

See ya! **

It's snowing

**happy 2010**


I know it's not much to you, but it is to me! I had never seen snow in here since 1997!! Well, it snowed last year but I wasn't here to see it... and it wasn't as much as now, according to my mom and my sister. It's been snowing since morning and everything is white! What a wonderful day. I should be studying, but I can't - my neighbours made a "snow penguin" and now they're taking pictures with it. XD

Now, the worst part is that my mom is scared that they might cut the roads to my college and wants to send me to there as soon as possible. JESUS, I'm supposed to go only tuesday! I hate when this happens! =/

Oh, yes, I'm back to college. I had two nasty exams last friday, I had disgusting grades on the ones I had before Christmas and I'm not very confident about the ones next week. God, help me now...

Well, I just want you to know that I'm okay and I'm sorry I can't post more. Hope you're having a great new year so far!

See you all ASAP! ;)

Huggles and kisses! ***

PS - snow fight! XD

Another page

So here I am, back after being "abducted" from here for a month. Gosh, people, I'm so sorry, but college has been driving me crazy. Again.

My final exames were terrible. Psychology had almost every question from our previous exams (that's why we can't see the correction) and Preventive Medicine was too long, it left me with a terrible headache. Pharmacology was a stupidity from the first question to the last. Can you believe they asked us for medication that we NEVER studied?!I had a 10, but I don't even know how!

I need to say, though, that we had really great results, I think. Only (cof cof) 28 people failed, and most of them with 8 and 9. I must said, we're the best year in that stupid college! They try to bring us down everytime, but they can't. Yeay... --'

Anatomical Pathology is a disgrace. We don't have the basic concepts in Histology to understand that thing and what annoys me the most is the fact that it seems pretty interesting. I don't even want to know my result in the latest exam. And please, we're learning everything in 4 weeks. Who can know everything in 4 weeks?!

Microbiology, on the other hand, was a surprise. I had a 15 on the first exam and I barely knew a thing. And I had a 17 on the second. Weeeee. Unfortunately, the third one was a tragedy. But it's okay, the other results will blind me on this one. XD

So, now I'm on vacations and I need to study Microbiology and Anatomical Pathology because we'll have exams on the first week of classes and the final exams on these two subjects in the next one. Great, isn't it? The last week was terrible in one way, everyone is feeling frustrated about college and my class had a huge fight for something really stupid, but it ended okay, I think. I'm feeling very lazy, I didn't do a thing last week, I don't even have the copies to study yet, and I hate to study during Christmas. There's so many things to do, once you realize it it's January and you're back to school!

Oh, and yesterday was my birthday! =D I had a really great day, all my friends sent messages, even some from college, and I got things I really needed. I have Jodi Picoult's latest book, woo woo! Can't wait to read it! *-*

So, I guess that's it for now. Once again, sorry for disappearing for so long, you know how I am. And I hope to post a little more during Christmas break, even though I need to study. See you all soon, I hope.

Huggles and kisses! ***

I still believe

I still believe that I will be strong enough to survive college. Everything will be okay and I will thank myself the fact that I didn't give up.

But at the same time...

WHAT THE HELL was I thinking when I chose medicine?! That choice was a suicide and people don't even get it!

I'm so sick and tired of that place. You have NO idea! I'm sick and tired of those classes that are nothing more than a waste of time, I'm sick and tired of those teachers, who have this special pleasure in ruining two weeks of hard study for their own joy, I'm sick and tired of those exams because I know things but I can't answer those questions, I'm sick and tired of people around me, who don't get that I'm tired, that I'm NOT complaining because I'm lazy, that I'm NOT complaining for nothing!

Now I get what that other guy said on tv: when people commit something stupid, they always give others signs... the others are the ones who aren't interested enough to notice them.

I can't wait for this week to be over. Maybe I'll feel a little better by then.

Glad to talk to you again. Kisses!

Some more stuff...


I'm tired. TIRED! I wonder if my teachers know the meaning of that word...

Last week I decided to relax a little and I kind of lost my mind. I had a dinner with friends at my home. I went to the "Latada" (wonder if there's a translation for that --') and to the Tunas festival. I skipped that stupid class on Friday afternoon.

There's no need to say I barely studied last week, right? Oh, nothing to worry about. I just have, what, ten more chapter to read for my next exams on Friday. There's no need to be stressed, right? 


I had lunch with my family today. It was wonderful and it really helped me to relax a bit. 

I guess I'm not making much sense tonight, but my neurons are kind of dead by now. Wish to add some more interesting stuff next weekend. Just wanted to tell you that I'm still alive. 

And happy birthday, Oscar! *-*Gee, I'm such a nerd... --'

Well, people, have a wonderful week. Hope to see you in some days. I think I'll go to bed now.
