So, the conference was great (met some interesting people, got to see two of my good friends who live in LA) but for some reason, I'm feeling totally, totally burnt out. I missed class on monday because of the conference, and barely managed to make my way to histology yesterday. Somehow we rocked anatomy lab (maybe because it's calming... it's hard to explain but there is something to be said about cleaning up a cadaver. Fat and fascia surround everything- especially in our guy, who was probably pushing 220 when he died- but then as you clear it away with your scalpel, there's a nerve, or an artery running within. Cut, clean, repeat... very mindless, very zen)... and then I went home, took a nap, and went back to anatomy lab, did more cutting. Its all I could force myself to do.

Today I skipped every class (and wednesdays are a bad day to skip.... 6 lectures I now have to make up) but I just couldn't bring myself to go. Frankly, I don't even want to study tonight... I just want to curl up with a book and forget about learning stuff for a while.

I know I've only got another 4 weeks until the end of the semester (SCARY) which is awesome... but frankly at this point, I'd be happy to just veg for 2-3 days. I don't think I can afford to, though.

Pressure sucks. I really want to just coast for a while, but I know I'll probably regret it later.
