Studying is just like every other job. Some days you just don't want to have anything to do with it.
Today is one of those days. 
Often I try to harvest the power of fear in order to motivate myself. It seems that I have built up a resistance to this kind of stimulant, so instead I am trying for a different method: interest!
Wow, look at these pathology diagrams - aren't they interesting.
Even more interesting are the drug names, classes, side-effects and interactions.
Memorising the fiddly parts of anatomy makes them possibly the most interesting parts of the lot. (You know - the interesting parts that only seem to have relevance to future microsurgeons.)
But don't forget about EBM and Public Health - they are so interesting they deserve to be in their own course. 
Yes . . . interest . . . 
Hopefully I'll find some clinical correlation and it will all fall into place, going from interesting to being genuinely interesting.
