When a crappy Monday suddenly spirals into an EPIC FAIL for the whole day

At first I’m like…

But then…a true HULK SMASH is in order!!

I’m launching a campaign to abolish all “EPIC FAIL MONDAYS”! Whose with me?! 😀

When I sleep through my alarm and wake up realizing I have 20 minutes to get to class and take my quiz…

I manage to make it to class to take my quiz only to realize I was better off staying in bed at home! All I could think during this damn thing was…

Bravo professor…that quiz was quite diabolical!!

Today’s Score: Prof=1, Vitamin Ray=0


How I decide what to do with my free Saturday…

And what I WISH I could say to the neighborhood kids whose screams of laughter and play flood through my window as I’m trying to take my nap…

(P.S. even though I want to silence their screams forever, they are pretty darn cute rolling around in the grass. 🙂 )

My week summed up…

WHEEWW!! I’m telling you America…that was one HELL of a week!!

This week was a week of many firsts:

  • First time I adjusted someone’s spine in class. Haha! All I had to do was put the person on his back, ask him to cross his arms over his chest (as if giving himself a bear hug), then lay on top of him horizontally while making sure my boobs didn’t hit  his face. Oh yea folks…we learn to get nice and personal with our fellow classmates. NO BOUNDARY ISSUES HERE (ya right)!! No worries though, a quick little thrust of my body weight onto him gave his thoracic spine a nice release!! Glad I was able to make SOMEBODY feel good this week 😛
  • First time I gave a male genitourinary exam. I already explained to you how that made me feel.
  • First GPA/Clinic Entrace Exam. That was today and by far the most nerve-racking experience of the week. Fingers crossed…hopefully I passed. I’ll let you know in 5 days!!
  • First Pathology IV test of the quarter. Oh the kidneys! They are complicated little f**kers!! I’m serious!! So many details. Let’s hope I didn’t fail that one either because my mental and emotional exhaustion won over my capacity to truly study and retain.
  • First full week of sunshine since before Spring Break. Oh yes…that’s been the highlight! In the words of Halle Berry’s character from Monster’s Ball, “Make me feel good…make me feel GOOOOODDD!!”

All in all folks…I dodged a lot of close calls. Cheers to a mellow weekend and hoping next week is a little less crazy and novel. Sometimes the “same ol’ same ol'” can be quite refreshing and comforting then handling all the new.

P.S. Mad thanks to all my new visitors to the page this week. Your patronage is much appreciated. You guys keep my light glowing. I also love my veterans too!!

Stay tuned for your next dose of Vitamin Ray!


First Male Genitalia and Prostate Exam

Today I completed my first male genitourinary exam. Prior to the exam, I felt nervous but just knew I’d leave the exam feeling like this…


RUDE AWAKENING! While I did a great job for my first exam, I actually felt more like this afterward…

It was a mixed bag of emotions and confusion. The exam itself I think is awkward and weird in and of itself. I mean, there is just nothing glamorous or amazing about sticking your finger up a man’s butt!

In fact, this whole week challenged my personal boundaries. That’s another lesson we learn in med school: overcome your issues with personal space and physical touch. It’s NOT easy!! You understand what you’re doing and why, but it still  takes time to emotionally cope. Everyday is a working progress. Thank goodness for wine…and on that note…

Dangers of BURN OUT

On a weekly basis, I find myself exercising the utmost control to refrain from utilizing brute physical force on my colleagues. Some people just have no CLUE how close they come to crossing the line that can truly make a person “go postal.” Luckily, I do A LOT of yoga and meditation to keep myself cool, calm, and collected.

But last week America, a couple of those dum dums crossed the line!

My reaction was this…

HOWEVER, what I really thought about doing was this…

Warning to the public…beware of pissing off people who are “burnt-out” or “Wayne Brady will choke a b*tch!”
