his & hers 2: notes

While Y and I are both in graduate/professional school, our programs are drastically different. He needs to remain competitive; I can slack off if I want. His classes require a level of brain power I could never hope to achieve; mine... don't. My classes are in English, his technically are as well, but it's debatable. For example, paraphimosis? That word does not exist in any language I learned. 

I think our notes reflect the differences in our graduate education:

Y's notes on who-knows-what: 

We have notebooks full of pages and pages of this stuff - and not even one margin of my name with a heart around it. I'm offended.

My notes, after a particularly thrilling International Health lecture on the deadly threat of guinea worms, which have to be pulled out of their host's leg. Gross, right?

One of us is going to go far in life. 

By the way, when I posted my first "his & hers" post, I thought I had come up with this great new blog concept. But alas, as with pretty much everything in life, it had been done - very well, might I add - by the adorable blog Hooray (and probably countless others). You gotta admit though, you probably won't find another "his & hers" post containing the words "boggy waterlogged sponge consistency of prostate". 

And with that, I'm unique again.


  1. Yaaay! Notes on EKGs!

    I like your worm better. Now, you'll never forget the Guinea Worm. I think that's the one where you have to wrap it around a stick? Either way, I think you drew him perfectly. :D

  2. I like your notes better. Even though it's over a gross sounding worm, I can at least imagine, make up a story, or understand what's going on.

    Y's notes? not so much. to me his notes look like a confused alphabet.

  3. Love it!!
    I think Y's handwriting is quite beautiful btw!!

  4. Whit, I'm so impressed you could tell what those notes were about! Some of this stuff must be rubbing off on you. And yeah- the guinea worm has to be pulled out with a stick. Like I said, GROSS.

    Andi, Y is going to be SO shocked that you said that - we make fun of his kindergarten handwriting all the time.

  5. I'm offended too that there was no heart plus name in the columns. Just to make everyone uncomfortable, I put dirty/offensive quotes from movies in the margins of Josh's notes when he leaves them out.He'd be lying if he said he didn't love when he found them.
