I know sometimes we give off the impression that we always have our shit together, but let’s get real—it’s not always the case.

I have two exams today, parasitology and pediatrics. The former I barely had time to study for because of the extensive coverage of both. As much as I hate cramming, sometimes it’s inevitable (especially in med school). I don’t bother trying to make my notes aesthetic, I don’t even use highlighters for my readings anymore (notice my use of one ink).

Protip: You do you. Sometimes we feel so much pressure to have pretty notes and very organized study spaces, but in the end, it’s really about the learning process. Remember, if the method doesn’t help you, try another one (heck, try ten), until you finally find the one that works for you.

Good luck to everyone powering through this month! I believe in you guys! ✨

Fandest du das schon immer unangenehm? Oder erst seit du aufgehört hast regelmäßig Youtube Videos hochzuladen?

Ganz am Anfang fand ich’s einfach nur aufregend und spannend, weil ich selbst auch noch andere Künstler als “Stars” angesehen habe und unwissentlich zwischen Menschen unterschieden habe. Als ich dann selbst für einige auf einmal ein “Star” bzw. eine bekannte Person geworden bin, hab ich halt gecheckt wie sinnfrei diese Illusion eigentlich ist und angefangen das Ganze ein bisschen zu hinterfragen.

My handwriting actually varies depending on the occasion. When I make revision notes, I usually write in print to keep it neat. When I write lecture notes, more often than not, it’s in cursive because that helps me write faster.

Also, fountain pens are great for long writing sessions. Smoother, better ink flow, less pressure needed to write (making it more comfortable), more economical in the long run, and environmentally friendly! 💖

Planetarium // Nurseydex

a/n: short drabble based on the commission @wheeloffortune-design was doing today on their livestream. i’ll link back to that when it’s posted. EDIT: here’s the link.

“The binary star Algol is located 93 light years away. It used to be known as ‘al Ghul’, the demon star….”

”Yo, Dex,” Nursey whispered, nudging Dex’s arm. “Where’s she pointing? I can’t see what the laser is pointing to.”

“It’s the one on the left, over there.” He pointed.

“Oh, I see,” Nursey said, reaching over Dex to take a handful of popcorn. “No, wait, I don’t see.”

Nursey, it’s right—hey.” Some of the popcorn in Nursey’s fist fell out onto Dex’s lap. “C’mon, you just spilled popcorn all over me.”

“Whoops,” Nursey said, sounding entirely unapologetic. He picked a piece off of Dex’s knee and popped it into his mouth, grinning.

“The binary star makes up part of the Perseus constellation. It represents the mighty Greek hero….”

Dex threw a piece of popcorn at Nursey’s face, who immediately threw it back. Dex raised an eyebrow. “I was going to give you some of these M&M’s I smuggled in,” Dex said quietly, “but now I’m having second thoughts….”

“Eh, it’s fine. I’m more of a skittles guy anyway,” Nursey replied, shrugging. He bent his knees and propped his feet up on the seat in front of him.

“God, I can’t believe you’re such a candy snob, It’s sugar.”

A couple of rows in front of them, an older woman turned around, putting her finger up towards her lips. “Shh!” she hissed.

“Sorry, maam,” Dex apologized. He did his best to look repentant.

They tried to be quiet for a few more minutes, listening to the woman explain the science behind stars and the meaning behind constellations. The planetarium was mostly dark. They could barely see each other in the dim lights cast down from the artificial stars above them. Despite himself, Dex found that he was actually really enjoying this date. It had been Nursey’s idea, of course—who else would turn down a normal date plan like going to the movies in favor of a planetarium. But Dex had been talking about how he missed being able to see the stars, and Nursey must have remembered that, and that was pretty sweet, he guessed. Slowly, like a high schooler on a first date, Dex put his arm over the back of Nursey’s chair and let it fall onto Nursey’s shoulder.

In Greco-Roman mythology, the constellation Aquila is associated with the eagle who kidnapped Ganymede, son of one of the kings of Troy….

“You know,” Nursey whispered into Dex’s ear, “Ganymede and Zeus banged a lot.”

Dex couldn’t help it—he started giggling. “What?” he said, doing his best to keep his voice down. “I thought Achilles was the one who was into dudes.”

“All the Greeks were into dudes, Dex,” Nursey murmured. “The founders of their democracy were a same-sex couple.”

“That sounds fake, but I don’t know enough about Ancient Greece to argue with you.”

“It’s totally true,” Nursey said. “You know who else is into dudes?”

Dex sensed a trap. “…Who?”

“Me,” Nursey said. He leaned in and planted a kiss on Dex’s cheek.

“Oh my god.”

The older woman from before turned around a second time, giving them a look. This time they managed to keep quiet until the end of the show.

“So, what did you think?” Nursey asked as they left the planetarium. “Was that better than a movie?”

“Dunno,” Dex shrugged. “I guess I could be convinced.”

“Hm, I could definitely convince you…” Nursey said. He leaned in and kissed him.

“God, you’re such a sap,” Dex murmured against his lips. But he kissed back all the same.

“Ambassador Y/L/N? I understand you need a pre-mission assessment?” An attractive blonde nurse approached you where you’d sat down to wait. You nodded, handing her the questionnaire you’d been asked to fill out. “Follow me. Doctor McCoy is running a little behind today, but I can get your labs drawn while you wait.”

“Thank you?” You weren’t sure, but you thought she was the head nurse.

“Chapel, Christine. You can call me Chris,” she smiled and led you back to the furthest biobed before darting away for a lab kit. A tall, handsome doctor you could only assume was McCoy was dealing with a red shirt at the biobed nearest you, and you couldn’t help but overhear as he berated the young man for the foolish way he’d been injured. You felt yourself bristle as you eavesdropped on the conversation, and didn’t realize that it was obvious you were listening in until the doctor looked at you, arched his fine eyebrow and enabled the privacy curtain, effectively blocking you.
