Yeah, I know, I was talking about the Vicodin they gave me lol

Yeah, I just hate right now because I'm not supposed to be eating much right now and the pain meds make me super hungry, they also make me super wired and energetic

I didn't think Prilosec worked at all because from November to March I had super bad heartburn (which I never had before) and Prilosec didn't do shit...well I found out when I had my emergency surgery that the heartburn was caused by my small intestine wrapping around my stomach along with some other stuff which means the Prilosec wasn't working right. My heartburn the last couple days has been knocked out completely by Prilosec...weird

Well my ex just gave me a hell of a story

Her friend went to hospital with stomach pain. Turns out she had bruised ovaries because her boyfriend was fucking her too hard.

sounds like something that would happen to me. Last year at this time my thighs were basically constantly in pain from vigorous activities.

People, please, stay healthy.

I should probably include myself in this, for the very mediocre reason that my back is starting to show the damage of carrying around a heavy camera bag that hangs over just one shoulder. If I have serious back problems later in life I won't be shocked.

And now I'm in Denmark where everything has suddenly become expensive. The cheap beer in Germany was amazing.

i'm right behind you. my capstone is due on may 3rd (i think? i should know this for sure). the last day of classes is may 3rd, come to think of it, so i assume everything for both of my classes is due that day. in true to "fuck you" form though, my presentation for my capstone is two days later, when i'm supposed to be done with everything already. it'll probably be the same with this other class, too.

at least i'm done with everything forever...unless i decide i want some certificate in something else at some later point. but it would be a supplement, like in the field i'd be specialising in for translation, not further education, e.g. a phd. fuck no.

If I could do one thing again in my life, it would be my PhD. Three and a half wonderful years.

I'm serious. I'm trying to think of other things I would like to do again. Everything else is just a day somewhere or a gig or whatever, not something long-term like that.

I hope my postdoc is similar, really. Another three years to research a specific project, but this time with more professional obligations and no possibility of extension at the end!

I've ever heard of a post-doc in America, is that an Australian thing?

No, postdoctoral fellowshops are commonplace worldwide. They're the usual first academic position, a 1-3 year appointment (in rare cases, 4-5 years), and I fear will soon be a prerequisite for a lectureship. You'd be hard-pressed to find a university that doesn't have members of staff that are postdocs either through an internal scheme (like mine at Wollongong) or through umbrella authorities such as the Australian Research Council, European Research Council, Wellcome Trust, National Endowment for the Humanities, etc. The US is full of them; I've refused to apply for any (I won't live in the States - though I did nearly cave for an attractive position at Harvard), but many of my fellow recent grads have. A good friend of mine currently holds a postdoc at Yale.

What's a bit crazy though is that there are some postdocs that you essentially cannot get without having won another postdoc previously. Sure, you can apply, but you won't be viewed as competitive.

Also, fuck you Scandinavia, what the hell is this nonsense about no Sudafed or other cold medications containing pseudoephedrine? Hell, they couldn't even offer me anything containing that phenylephedrine shit that doesn't really work.

Over here you can still get the pseudoephedrine stuff, but they keep it behind the counter and you have to have the pharmacist get it for you, and then they have to look you up in a database and scan your license, and you can only buy one box a month or something.
