General, Life

I want my brain space back.

08.08.07 | 3 Comments

The vast expanse of the material I have been reviewing is great, and I am feeling the pressure during this, my final study break. I now wish I had followed through with my idea to fuse my nerdom and my love of music to make educational and catchy songs. They would have been full of mnemonics and very helpful. (A sample: When I’m dancin’ and my blood is full of CO2/It flows to my heart; girl, it beats for you/Superior vena cava takes it right on through/To the right atrium, tricuspid valve, right ventricle, too. So it sounds a little lame now, but you know you’d be singing it during a test.)

Much of my youth was misspent; before the days of searching the Internet, I would record songs from the radio onto a tape and play them back over and over, writing down my best approximation of the lyrics, then obsessively memorize those. If I had applied that same intensity to my studies, I’d be… doing something other than studying for a second stab at the MCAT. I would give anything for just a fraction of that brain space. There is no good reason to have nonsensical Beck verses from 1993 taking up valuable real estate in my head, though he does mention vitamin D.

Anyway, MCAT tomorrow. Then I can rejoin the world of the living.
