I had a slight breakthrough with my course at university. I know this may not interest some of you but for those of you who are interested, my course is basically based around diagnostics. Being a doctor without the patient contact time or the money. It's the behind the scenes aspects. We tell the doctor what your body is telling us is wrong, and they create a treatment plan with some guidance from us.
Today, instead of the learning, and trying to remember endless facts we were given case studies. Case studies, based around Microbiology (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.), of patients presenting with symptoms and possible causes. We had to identify the culprit (organism) causing the problems as well as discussing the methods we would use to diagnose the patient.
I know it sounds pretty boring, but it was fun. It was wonderful being able to interact and think for ourselves more than we would normally do in a lecture or tutorial. I felt like I was on Gregory House's team and needed t…
I thought about this song today and simply had to post it. I was lucky enough to see this band live a couple of years ago. One of the best performances I've seen. They've brought out more recent tracks but I'm stuck in the past.
I give you, Brand New - Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't, enjoy!
My fellow blogger, Jesscah, knew what she was talking about when she posted about Neon Trees. She mentioned this song but she didn't post up the video, which I think is a shame, as she's right, it is such a fun song, I mean, I'm sitting here bopping away!
I've not written anything substantial lately and for that I am sorry. Of course the same excuses will spew out from my mouth, but I genuinely have been busy. That's not to say that things haven't been going through my mind though.
I'm at that stage where I feel like I'm in a coffee shop, sipping away at my drink, and simply watching the world work, without me. I'd like to say a lot of changes are happening in my life, but it's not directly my life. It's that things are changing in the lives of the people around me, and that's having a slight effect on me. The effect it's having isn't anything I should worry about or anything ground breaking. If I'm being honest with you, the changes around me have no direct impact on my life. The problem is, I think that the fact that all these changes are happening without me, is what's bothering me the most.
I bet you're wondering what I'm rambling about, I'm wondering the exact same thin…
I'm quite lucky in the way that I've not had many "northern stars" but I think I've been pointed in the right direction, and I hope that those of you who haven't found their one yet, will get there soon. You might think I'm talking babble, but once you've heard this song you'll understand what I mean.
So to my northern stars, thank you for all being so wrong for me, because I'm happy with who I'm with at the moment, he is beyond wonderful.
I give you, Rascal Flatts - Bless The Broken Road, enjoy!
Redskins fans may have reason to worry; not about the state of the team and where a draft pick ends up or where the Redskins find their needs in Free Agency. We don’t have to worry about what Albert Haynesworth is doing and why it’s bad for the organization. There’s no pressing need to write about Clinton Portis and what he’s doing with his gimmicky costumes and how he’s not a team leader. We don’t need to worry about yet another quarterback who has a decent year in a brand new system and is being run out of town for another option which will probably end up on the same exact short leash as the last. No, Redskins fans find themselves in a very familiar situation; a young, up-and-coming, exciting, fan-favorite talent is in the hospital after being injured in a violent attack. Only this time, it doesn’t appear to be anywhere near as serious as the last time we went through this. 4 years ago; the Washington Redskins organization, and fans, and fans of football in general, found themselves …
I want to wish anyone who is celebrating today an amazing day, and also to those of you who aren't celebrating. I just hope that whether you believe in the occasion or not you are able to spend the day with the people you love the most.
I'm also including in this post one of my favourite songs, not just for today, but in general, because, in spite of it's name, it's been playing for me during some special moments in my life, and it's got positive connotations for me.
I hope you love it as much as I do, I give you, Kina Grannis - Valentine, enjoy!
It’s been far too long since I’ve blogged anything substantial, and it feels as though my past few “substantial” posts, I’ve issued that sentiment with intent to call to halt this pattern. I know better than anyone not to make many promises regarding future, especially of things which I know I clearly can’t control self-interest over… but I’ve had my fill (ironically enough it’s more a starvation than filling) of not keeping up with the blog. I still seek to expand my horizons here in the coming months, I know plenty needs to be taken care of in order to even think to begin this expansion, but I feel as though I know this will happen. Luckily for me, this wasn’t anything I could have just jumped into doing. After long thought and reconsideration, I’ve determined the focus and direction I’d like to take in this venture, and realize that (like I’ll be expanding my horizons) I’ll be expanding what I wanted to do in the first place. It’s only fair to allow my focus to not limit itself to j…
I was going to post up a mash-up from this artist but then I thought I should post up his latest original, which I heard today and really like. I think a lot of people can relate to the lyrics. It's all about trying to help someone out of the rut they're stuck in because you love them and you want them to move on, with you, and you want them to learn to trust again.
It's a known fact that I'm awfully fond of YouTube artists. I think it takes a lot of courage to post videos of yourself singing for all the world to see in the hopes of being discovered and having to deal with critics who don't appreciate what you do. A friend recently linked me to this pair, and it's a cover of a song I really love. I think they did it brilliantly.
I give you, Just A Dream - Christina Grimmie & Sam Tsui, enjoy!
This is a song I used to listen to many years ago, I just rediscovered it today, it's a little bit sad sounding but I think it's beautiful, almost makes me want to serenade the Beau.. shame I can't sing, really.
I give you, Secondhand Serenade - Your Call, enjoy!
