Chuck Norris

It seems that Chuck Norris is the new ‘in thing’ in pop teen culture. High school kids all over the nation are making Chuck Norris jokes. You can see a whole collection of them online, some of which are just plain bad, and some of which are actually kind of funny. My favorite:

Chuck Norris once roundhouse kicked Bruce Lee, breaking him in half. The result was Jet Lee and Jackie Chan.

So, I guess Marsha’s right. I better start posting again, or my archives for March 2006 will be completely empty. Ummm…..what to write? I just watched Black Hawk Down. That movie was brilliant! I was very, very impressed. I hadn’t seen it before, but I had heard many good things about it, and I am now convinced that there is something that runs in the blood of those director brothers that makes them soo incredibly talented.

We got letters in the mail about graduation stuff…caps and gowns, diplomas, yearbooks, stuff like that. It was a bit shocking because I guess I haven’t thought about graduation. I mean, I know that I’m taking this semester easy, and I know that I’m going to medical school next semester, but while I’ve been thinking a lot about a lot of new beginnings I will be having in the near future, I haven’t put any thought into the end that is coming up in May. It’ll be a complete closure to the college chapter of life. There are very few people I can say I met at Rice that I will continue to keep up with. As it is, I’m not very good at keeping in touch. There are some people, and they know who they are, who always stay very close to my heart, and I’m always thinking about them and what they would say or do if they were in the car next to me at that exact moment, but I don’t actively keep in touch with them unless I have a solid reason to pick up the phone or send an email. That’s just the way I am. I can’t converse without having a point, like some people who just go on and on as if silence bothers them, and so I can’t contact people to randomly just catch up. It feels fake. Like, they should be sensing my brain waves or something, and they should know that I’m thinking of them. And they should send brain waves back. OK, long tangent. So, the point is, there are very few people from Rice that I feel like I will keep in touch with for years down the road, but those people have become very important to me in the few years that I’ve gotten to know them. Closing the doors on the Rice Sallyport is going to be a difficult and strange feeling.

But, they can always catch up here. I may be slow at posting for the time being, but I can guarantee that as soon as medical school starts I’ll have plenty of stories to tell at the end of each day. How many bodies I cut open, how many babies I delivered…I’ll keep count and let everybody know. It’ll be a neat way to keep track. This will be my medical school log.

Speaking of med school, I’m going to leave you all with a great sight. You should read all of the comic strips on this website. They describe the next four plus years of my life.
