Week 44: Pharmacology
For the first time in many months, the entire class got together under a single roof. Pharmacology Round Two came back with a vengeance which was good, in a certain way, because we were all reminded of how it was to be a regular student, listening to lectures upon lectures, digesting everything that was being said, and falling into the regular pattern of alertness and sleepiness.
It was like a reunion of sorts. I had a chance to see people from other blocks, those I don't normally meet on a regular basis. For days I had to somehow get used to the idea of being in a big classroom.
Our First Year H1N1 Group got together for the small group discussions (SGD). Our sessions were often dotted with laughter, quotable quotes, and craziness, especially when Denden Dalmacion, whose humor is one-of-a-kind, facilitated. It was my first time to see Bryan de Gracia and Carlo de Guzman stand in as facilitators, and both did an excellent job.
My lunch group, composed mostly of men who are taller and bigger than me, got to reunite as well. We had a grand time catching up with one another. I missed these friends.
It's back to regular programming next week. Our next rotation: Anesthesiology.
