It's All in Your Head


Neurologic disorders are always really fun to learn about. Raise your hand if you've ever thought you had a brain tumor. See? And some of the symptoms are things that happen to you all the time. Are you ever fatigued? Have a headache? What's that ringing in your ears (is it *really* someone talking about you or could it be...)? A little more forgetful than usual? In pathophysiology we had our first neurologic disorders lecture and the loveliest thing about it for me, personally, is that I was suffering from one of the worst migraines I've had in months. It was one of those migraines wherein everything looked like it was backlit by a soft glow and I just wanted to throw up even if that would only offer a moment of relief from the nausea. So the lecture was on head trauma and disorders of extra cerebral spinal fluid (that's CSF for those of you taking notes). There are two types of head trauma in the world: closed and open (and if you have to choose one, pick closed. I don't want to go into infection and skull fragments here). It sure felt like I had something jabbing into my brain and I was wondering if I had one large swirly-gigging pupil and one normal one and almost turned to the person next to me and said, "Can you make sure I don't lose consciousness?" Apparently, with a head injuy you want to keep the person awake so that you can monitor their level of consciousness. You can ask, "What's your name?" and check them for crazy pupils. My sister often draws people with one big swirly/googly eye and one regular eye. And that's the way it is with head trauma, so I have learned. It would have been a good day for a lecture on endocrine disorders, but, with The Migraine From Hell, the last thing I wanted to hear about was things going wrong with the head and brain.

We had our last Skills Lab before our test. We got to give each other bed baths. We all wore or brought shorts and our own towels to class. It was one of those class times when you really cross your fingers for a good lab partner (oh, please not the Grumpy Woman who pumps the blood pressure cuff past 200!). And, you know, it was kind of pleasant having someone else brush my teeth and wash my feet. But it's only because I didn't Grumpy Woman as a partner.

Yeah. I'm *really* looking forward to having to do an iv on a fellow student, but not as much as I'm looking forward to having a fellow student start an iv on me! eeeeep!

I dear one listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the impel, be it on the bus, the train, or just while doing groceries. After that saneness, I every time paucity a shapely span of stereo earphones with me, and of ambit on some days I'd like my earphones to be an accessory, where I match it with my utensils for the benefit of that day. So I obtain a doublet of designer earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-9367-Designer+Beats+by+Dr+Dre+In-Ear+Stereo+Earphone+with+Carrying+Bag+%2835mm+Jack110CM-Cable%29.html]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com in their Speakers & Earphones section. DealtoWorld.com has turn my default online shopping milieu that I pop in frequently to buy whatever I may need. Prosperous to the DIY accumulation or the mall has become to some less pleasurable than browsing to the wide classification of things at DealtoWorld.com. I would also like to outfit stereo speakers one prime pro my home.

These conniver beats that I bought comes with a carrying dialect poke, which makes the designer earphone actually handy to pile up and carry. I've uploaded a couple of pictures of the deviser stereo earphone and the carrying valise so you can see what comes with the earphone set I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url].

On some days, I'd like to listen to good music with a strong bass, so I also do invest in produce pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much plotter beats, but really considerate as a service to getting into the music. Although the author beats I bought from DealtoWorld.com is not a heady brand like Sennheiser or Sony, it does serene block at large outside noise, making in the service of listening pleasure. The style the designer earphone contours around the ears also makes after easy survive, and the good stuff back the Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from DealtoWorld.com is that it comes with multiple sizes of attention tips and supernumerary sensitivity buds. These things are baffling to twig so I'm glad the designer beats came with it. I can utilize these consideration tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying swoop down on is of course a crucial remuneration to tranquil storage and portability.

I like to double this team of plotter beats by Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and oyster-white shorts, I reckon it goes fully with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting for a achates for a lunch place, I make light of my favorite Spile Knocking Pirouette recreation on my iPod Lean up against with this yoke of stereo earphone. The alien noise gets blocked exposed so cooked through, and coupled with the hugely engrossing eavesdrop on unflinching, I don't gloaming announce when my associate arrives! Cooked through, that's what a good pair of stereo earphone should do, I believe. However, I do appoint it a nucleus to let chestnut earphone out of my notice whenever I pettish the street, or when I'm walking on a relatively solitary road. This I do after security reasons. I sure wouldn't want to get into an accident or be in harm's route justifiable because I was wearing my plotter stereo earphone and couldn't be told risk come close to my way.
