Where The Hell Have I Been?

Hmm...that is an interesting question. Actually, not really. Bascially, for the past two weeks I have firmly planted my ass onto my ridiculously comfortable desk chair, desperately trying to catch up on all the work I didn't do this block with the hope of passing. Glamorous, I know, but this is what happens when you do no work for the first six weeks and then run off to Las Vegas with two weeks left in the block. Luckily for me, I was able to tap into every brain cell I have left in order to cram everything possible and (I think) I passed this class. This brings up an interesting point though - am I really supposed to remember all of these random bits of information for when I become a doctor? This is a concern because a) it has been about three hours since my test and I can honestly say that I forgot anything and everything that I knew at 8AM this morning and b) I might actually need to know something if and when I do convince someone to let me be a doctor. Given that, what the hell am I supposed to know? Does it really matter that I know anything about fructose 1,6 bisphophate phosphatase? Would I even be able to say fructose 1,6 bisphophate phosphatase out loud? Probably not. Whatever. The important thing is I now have a week and a half to sit on my ass and watch tv. Ahh, what a scam I'm running here.

Perhaps a more interesting question than 'where the hell have I been?' is 'why the hell do you care?'.
