Lungs suck

Har har har. I'm such a nerd.

I have decided that pulmonologists have a serious case of heart envy. Every single one we have makes lots of jokes about the lungs being more important than the heart, and today in small group our leader made sure to tell us, for a half an hour, how great it is to be a pulmonologist and work in the ICU. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you are the world's greatest specialist, we get it. This from the guy who also took about 5-10 minutes to tell us why not to drink the bong water because it contains Aspergillis and Klebsiella (fungus and bacteria respectively). (As if that's the only reason, and furthermore, why does a pulmonary guy know about smoking pot anyway...isn't that a bit counterproductive for the whole lung cancer thing?!?!)

Our class held its elections today, and I feel like I'm back in high school. I've been our class secretary for the last year, and I guess since no one ran against me, I still am. So I was in charge of the elections. First, I'm not great at making big announcements in front of large groups of people. I hate trying to get people's attention over the hum of a crowd. Second, the vote was so close (1 vote) for president that we might be having a re vote, and I'm stuck in the middle trying to mediate the whole issue. I just count, I don't make the decisions. Seriously, elections in a sorority were more care-free.

Well, that's about it from here for now. Pretty boring week. I'm enjoying it immensely.
