“Chemotherapy is like trimming your nails with a hedge clipper. Sometimes you get a nail, sometimes you get an arm….”
-This morning’s second lecturer
Today, the first day of second year, started off with DEATH. Quite literally: lectures on necrosis and apoptosis. Lessons learned: histology is all cobwebbed in the back of my memory; mitochondria are important; and cell signaling pathways never. Go. Away.
Aside from the fact that studying will once again be a major part of my life, it’s good to be back, to see people again, to explore the City, to hear awesome summer adventure stories. Life needs to be like this for always.
