Galaxy bear has friends! And Itsuko sent me pictures of the fabric so I can confirm it is the Carina Nebula! The circled star in the gif above is eta Carina, and the darker region next to it is the Keyhole Nebula (which I only finally figured out just now). The gif is the fabric, and the bottom is from ESO.
Med school starts in about a month and I have so many things to buy it’s freaking me out!
-Books: These are being passed down to us via filesharing from the M2 class. I like paper books, but I’ve been told they arent really necessary and that the lectures should suffice, we’ll see.
-Supplies: I have to buy the “essential equipment” i.e. a stethoscope, oto/opthalmoscope, reflex hammer, pen light. (I keep hearing these things can just be borrowed for clinic days but I want to be safe… and not have to share.)
-I have ordered my white coat! They told us to get it early because turnover takes a while if you wait until classes start.
-Anatomy: I have also purchased scrubs for anatomy (scrubin has them cheap $6-8, as does goodwill $3). I have also ordered a dissection kit, cheap lab coat, and gloves from the M2 class. I still have to get an atlas.
-New clothes!: We have a dress code for classes, so I have also expanded my “professional” wardrobe. I bought quite a few blouses, skirts, and slacks. I’m told the dress code doesn’t last long, but I like looking decent.
-Transportation: I still have to buy my parking pass (for my ~1 hour commute, dreading it already)
-New computer: The one I have is about five years old and unbelievably slow. Most people have ipads I think? But I want one of the 2-in-1s, but anything fast will do.
That’s my list. I also plan on getting First Aid, as recommended by some of the medblrs. Is there anything else I should consider buying?
