Chapter 1 - Northern Spirit Courtyard [Part 1]
The scorching sun was a flame.  As burning rays of sunlight poured down from the sky all the surrounding water was evaporated away, the willows drooped down and their leaves were wilted making them look weak and sickly. In that same place, among the willow ...

How to Honor Your Tests in Med School
Someone posted the following on SDN.  I thought I would catalog it here for future reference.  It comes from a thread where people are arguing about how people manage to get 100s on tests in med school.  Suddenly this guy pops in really late to the discussi...
