as if we still hadn't had enough biopharm

I hope this is not against Strathclyde exam laws, hehe.

Here's a question from our exam today.

Q: What is the cause of cervical cancer in humans?
A) Human papilloma virus
B) Human cervical virus
C) Yesseria virus
D) Vaccinia virus
E) Men



I can just imagine the lecturer who came up with this question, running out of options to put for (E), scratching his head, and finally decided to put the TRUE answer as the final option.

If I had the guts I would put (e) as my answer. After all, it IS correct, in real life!

Today, I am happy.

1. Passed an exam which have been worrying me for some time. I'm thankful that I do not have to worry about it any more. I am also grateful for all the support and well-wishes from the people around me, and for the fact that Lady luck was with me throughout the exam. I am truly thankful.

2. Finished my pharm care presentation. It's not as big an issue as the one above, but I am no public speaker and public speaking has not been easy for me. I went though the whole presentation with no obstacles, I was able to answer all the questions fairly reasonably. I am happy that all my preparation work was not wasted.

3. Had a great time this evening sliding down the snow-covered slopes behind our hostel and having an epic snow fight! Although I did not participate much in either (I forgot my gloves and it was FREEZING cold) I still had a blast. Love!

I am happy, thankful, relieved. And that is enough for me, for now.
