Cadaver slides

So something sad occured to me today when we were looking at slides of brains in Neuro today. Those were people. It was a little creepy and emotional for a little bit. We saw a picture of a stroke patient's brain and this young woman's brain who had had an aneurysm and the Lecturer (nice guy) was talking about how they came in presenting certain symptoms and it was sad to know that he knew these people or at least had seen them before he saw the inside of them you know? 

It was weird and humbling that we get the opportunity to learn like this. 

Also, I am strangely calm I feel like compared to others in my class... I remember before in school being very high strung and I don't really have that battle now. I am glad and very content with where I am in life. It is a great feeling. Not to feel like I know it all but to feel calm and happy and not frantic all the time. 

On a side note my phone is dead. I will hopefully get a new one tonight so that I can rejoin the world of att but I am cool about that too. I once saw that as a lifeline... now I guess my comp and this wireless internet connection has taken my nokia's place. haha. 

I see Rach and linda in not very long! wohoo. Can't wait like 3 weeks!

PA school

So the verdict is in... LIKE! After the first official day of classes I am thinking I like this. 

Weird thought for the day:

Membranes are the reason we have life. They are the coolest thing in the world. :)

I'm nervous about tomorrow... It is my last(maybe) first day of school. I used to stay up real late/all night before on the night before the first day because I was nervous, apprehensive. Even just saying it makes it a lil better though. we shall see.

Ok the kitchen still has ants... I am about to go postal with that whole thing. However the day is not a total lost. Much to my checkbooks despair I have been eating out like everymeal because I cannot stomach eating in the kitchen. HA. but I did try out Enstein Bros Bagels this morning. Delicious! It was breakfast and then lunch because that Bagel was filling! 

My first kiddo brought me starbucks! haha. Yum! 

So countdown till school starts? 6 days ahh! still not really excited about that but I am hoping I will be after our meet and greet on Friday. 

Good things about today so far:
-- Apple Crunch bagels 
--paying $3.45 for breakfast and Lunch
--having a male friend that will drive 45 mins to help you keep your sanity 
-- vanilla lattes
--free internet at work
--shopping trip to Nordstrom rack! (but not buying anything which at this point is even better!) 

I'll keep you posted!

So I came home yesterday to an ant graveyard in my kitchen...

Here is the play by play. There have been ants in the kitchen for a couple of days, I attributed it to the rain and stupid Texas and put out poison but didn't tell Em that it was sugar based so she freaked out and cleaned all the poison up.(UG!) (Sorry if your reading this Em, But this has been a trying time!) Apartment people came and killed all the ants (well not all) but then they were all dead and still everywhere.... ahh! 

So when I got home from work at 8 pm last night I was overwhelmed, to say the least. My solution? Get a couple glasses of wine in me and clean the kitchen of all the dead bodies (in my normal cleaning getup) (Victoria Secret Style). 

Today there are still live ants in the kitchen and I donno what to do. I am just going to forget I have a kitchen until Winter and think seriously about moving away from Texas in two years when I can!

The secret window

So I let myself go somewhere emotionally that I had been afraid to. I thought "what if." It was like pulling off the bandaid (sp) or maybe just touching a bruise to see if it still hurts... It didn't :)
