  • Mike Posner: Hey Brandon Flowers ... I just wanted to say I'll buy and listen to anything you do.
  • Nick Petricca - Walk the Moon: I had this strong sensation of like being at church and Brandon Flowers is like our direct connection to the lord. (...) We got to meet Brandon Flowers when we played a gig in Vegas. I got to talk to him and tell him that his band was the band that made me want to be in a band.
  • Tom Smith - Editors: Such a soft spot for everything Brandon Flowers does.

August 27th, 2017

After a couple of extremely stressful weeks (end of Pediatrics rotation and final exam, first presentation of my masters degree project and the only presentation I have during the Ob/Gyn rotation) I am free!

Stiil have some homework and the final presentation of my project, plus a kind of shelf exam for a subject called ICB, but definitely I am more relaxed now. I have to manage my time very wisely so I can finish all of this on time and also take some time to go to the gym, read some non medical books and spend time with my family and friends.

One of my priorities for the rest of this 2017 is to start studying 1 hour everyday for the ENARM, which is the exam all med students in Mexico have to take in order to choose a speciality. Here is my schedule:

  • Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun: The Johns Hopkins Internal Medicine Board Review + Pocket Medicine.
  • Tue, Thu, Sat: First Aid for Step 1 + Crush Step 1.

And for Ob/Gyn I’ll be using Blueprints Ob/gyn + Case Files Ob/gyn.

I’ll try to post more often, at least once a week. I find it kind of difficult because I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I take too long, but I like the idea of keeping a record of my last years in med school (I wish I had done this since the beginig).

Here are some of my notes for my presentation on Physiology of contraction (or parturition).
