I got Robbins Pathology for Christmas!

Because all of the cool kids ask for pathology textbooks for Christmas! I also got some awesome stuff that will make my life cushier, and I get to get a facial! And my sister got me this, which is hilarious and makes me feel better about all the gross people in the world who don't wash their hands after they use the bathroom (you people know who you are!).

Christmas was good, we spent several days at my parents' house hanging out, eating tasty Filipino foods, playing board games, and sitting around talking to each other. We had our actual celebration on Christmas Eve, so we were able to head back to NC on Sunday. It has been the laziest week ever and I can't believe it is only Tuesday! I might even be completely caught up on sleep :) I still have to sort through the piles of laundry but other than that all that we have to do is ensure the dog gets walked and everyone gets fed. My husband is on vacation this week so he is here along with the dog. It is great to be together as a whole family for a while.

I have to swing by campus tomorrow since my laptop has a virus of some sort. I need to print a few things and check to see if the IT folks are there even though the school of medicine is on break. It would be fantastic if they are there, but I'm not going to get my hopes up! Luckily my dad is in SC with my mom until classes start up again so I stole his laptop for the week. I counted and it turns out we have five computers for two adults and two kids right now, which seems a little ridiculous. I could probably survive the six days between now and the start of intersession without my computer if I had to.

I'm excited about classes starting up again. It will be a completely different experience without the med students and getting to do the rotations. I can't wait to see what it will be like!


  1. Robbins pathology is one of my all time favorite books! FYI, they have an on line version in case you don't want to carry yours in everyday.

  2. I've gotten a lot of use from the student consult site, and it is probably the only reason I've bothered with getting new books (since you get the book plus the online access). So helpful and convenient!

  3. Nice gift! Also pick up the Pocket Companion to Robbins, too. It's extremely helpful! I've got the 7th edition, so I hope I can still use that one rather than the 8th edition next year. Shouldn't make that much of a difference, I think.
