As a bonus, there are some creative, non medical things afoot which are quite exciting. A small troupe of us are organizing a skit/comedy/music night which should be a blast--ok granted it will have a medical theme it will be a far cry from memorizing flash cards.
Last night we Canadians got a sweet view of a 'real Irish' pub just out of town. The place had about 10 tables (all of different size and shape with an equally random assortment of chairs) there were large glass cases with fishing reels and animal traps on display. The walls were covered in everything from old sporting equipment to taxidermied birds. (If any of you have seen the movie "Withnail and I" think of the Crow & Crown Pub--if you haven't seen the movie, rent it.) It was a lovely change of pace.
The thing I love about traditional music sessions is there is this large table somewhere in a corner, sitting around it are the musicians. There is something more natural and less show-boaty all about it. Several of our friends had also brought instruments and by the time we left it was half pensioners and half medical students playing fiddle, banjo, guitar, concertina, accordion, and mandolin. Delightful.
And the cherry of non medical excitement was today I was given a key (obtained through various secret handshakes and oaths) to the dance studio in the old sportsplex!! Yippeeeee! This means I can actually do yoga somewhere other than in my room. My room which only has 1 meter between the desk and bed, complete with ground floor window that opens to the high traffic entrance of my building! Oh the room is so divine. Today I went and drooled through the window at the beautiful floors and mirrored walls, high ceilings--divine. Tomorrow, yoga.
And now I will return to my regularly scheduled program of head in physiology textbook.
