I just wanna take a moment to appreciate how much of a good game Samba De Amigo is and it’s better than ANY Just dance game on the market XDDD
It’s such a good game, it was a staple of my childhood, and it’s what got me into liking Samba music when I was 6 years old.
Es lo que me hizo apreciar tanto la cultura mexicana en primer lugar XDDD
Es la cultura y la gente que me dan ganas de vivir allí (legalmente) cuando soy mayor (además, me encantan las playas y la comida, así como alejarme de algunas de las personas ignorantes y racistas que viven donde estoy)
I’ve secretly been in the Samba De Amigo fandom for many, many years!
Amigo is my second son and I love him to death XDDD
Well I mean... You posted it without any context so what I was supposed to think?
i linked it because of a certain thing that happened, that u clearly dont know about, and anyway its not like i even talked abt her directly i just linked a post that tbh every person/new person on simblr should read
Why are we sleeping on the incredibly canon fact that Momo Yaoyorozu loves cannons. She’s used them in battle THREE different times now, even though they are bulky and use up a lot of her fat supply. She’s smart, she could totally think of creative ways that require less fat. But she’s doesn’t. Because she loves the big boom tubes.
What I learned during my first semester in medschool
The first semester is officially gone, and well this are a few things I learned:
1. Labs are fucking important, honestly I wish I would have put more effort in studying for the lab practices I had last semester, same for my lab notebook, this is were you will actually learn, not in a clasroom lecture
2.Understand not memorize. Anatomy is more memorizing than understanding however being the one person in class that does understand the body instead of knowing it will pay off in the subjects, you may feel a little behind in anatomy while everyone is just reciting the textbook but you will be ahead in life, I have listened to some many friends from upper classes saying they have to go back to relearn anatomy so often because of just swallowing the textbook when they were in first year.
3. Be friends with people who are in upper classes, this is the best thing you can do for yourself, people who are ahead of you can not only give you tips, but can also explain things when you are clueless and most importantly give support people in your year can’t because they’ve been through it already!
4. Things with your classmates can get intense, in my university we take every class with the same twenty people and in a competitive field as medicine there jealousy is always there, don’t let it affect you, is someone succeeds it doesn’t mean you are failing, and also if someone get a higher grade it doesn’t mean they are better than you, we all have something to learn from everyone and something to teach to everyone.
5. Netter’s Anatomy flashcards 100% (there is also an edition in spanish!)
6. The 2 notebook trick: Have a notebook for writing everything you learn in class and another one to make your study notes or summaries
Hey guys! I know a lot of people have trouble with histology and I found myself so many times teaching my friends not only the subject but also how to study for it so this post is for you, I hope you enjoy it since it’s my first post.
I know medical books tend to have too much information that may not be always necessary so I really recomend highlighting IN DIFFERENT COLORS, I can’t stress enough about how important is to use color coding, most of my friends get tired easily when reviewing and I truly believe it is because the whole textbook page is yellow, so every time they open it they get saturated by the amount of information highlighted. Also when you are trying to find something is easier to look straight to the type of info you need (could be numbers, functions or anything) so a color for each type is a lifesaver
Yellow: Really important stuff (If you don’t know this you don’t know anything about the subject)
Purple: Numbers (size of this type of cell, percentages, life cycle or anything that includes numbers)
Blue: Functions (what does it do? How does it work?)
Pink: Specifications (something you can only find in this tissue/cell/organ or anything really really specific or detailed to know)
Orange: Terms and vocabulary to know
Also if there is any clinical case try to summarise it, take a post it and just write the disease, cause and main simptoms.
Some really good histology books are: Gartner,Genesser and Ross yet try to study not only from one textbook, having one physically and the rest as ebooks is great because you can highlight and write notes on one, but study also from the rest. I feel like I need to actually mark the page or something to feel like I did read it, but that is just me.
FOCUS IN THE PICTURES: is more important to tell the difference between the tissues (normally the hardest part of the subject) than knowing what they do (you’ll learn that again later on physiology), so pay lots of attention when that explain how to identify them, most doctors will be kind enough to give you tips and tricks on how to do it WRITE THEM DOWN!
Read at least the chapter summary before the lecture.
Draw!!! It is easy to make a quick sketch about what the doctor just explained about the tissue, for example if you are talking about red cells draw one and write any notes given regarding how it will look on the microscope
Take pictures of the tissues: At home you can play matching them to the correct name or cells, and also you can’t try to draw the but now focusing more on the details so you can remember how it looks like
