glad to read that it ended up working out.
i was thrifting vicariously through you lol.
Just passed the first block of 'real' med school. Cardiology and respiratory block. Saying this stuff is hard is an understatement. It's not really that hard, but you're getting tested on 20-25 hours worth of material, plus 10 hours of anatomy reading, plus 20 hours of dissection every 2-3 weeks. It's amazing how much you can learn when you're forced to do so.
I wouldn't say I did well, but we're true pass fail so there's not that much pressure. Still, just like with thrifting, I'm hoping to do better everytime I head out to do some damage.
I'm not as active on here anymore, but I really want to give a huge shoutout to @thriftydood for a fantastic trade of chelseas. I got a pair of boots I've been hunting down for YEARS. His boots go out to him in the mail tomorrow afternoon before I go to clinic.
Also, I just blew the last of the money I made by thrifting on motorcycle stuff. I'll post pictures of the work I'm doing on that over the next few weeks. Basically tricking the shit out of the bike I bought because it doesn't make sense to sell it and buy something more expensive using loan money... Also, it's a pretty stupid idea in general to get a 100hp bike with you've got 1500 miles of riding experience lol.
Definitely. I've seen some when I did research in spine surgery as well.
The story was almost always similar though. No gear, often no helmet, etc etc etc. I still haven't taken my bike on the highway and likely won't for a bit longer. It's certainly a fun way of getting around and exploring the area, but I'm actually pretty risk averse.
