Started hematology today in school at 8am. By 8:15 I was already wondering, hoping really, that it was all just a very vivid dream. I like vampire movies and hungry sky gods that demand blood sacrifices as much as the next person, the blood is the life and all that, but endless pictures of indistinguishable little blood cells is a poor way to start a Monday morning after several blissful months of not really having to deal with any of this stuff at all. Eosinophils, basophils and neutrophils, oh my. On the plus side, I can now feel a small, deep satisfaction at being slightly less clueless than 134 first year medical students that started today.
