Wednesday wasn’t as terrible as I thought it would be. I couldn’t sleep though and woke-up at like 3:40am. I had my Comparative Politics midterm at 8am, which ended up being the easiest thing ever! 25 multiple-choice and then pick 1 of 3 essay questions and fill the back of the last page on the exam. I finished in less than 20 minutes (first one done!). Everyone looked at me when I go up, but, I knew my stuff 😉 I also had the first baby pig dissection in lab that night.
I walk into lab, the blinds are closed, it’s hot, and smells. On the tables were bits of….”animal”. From a distance, the pig looked like a sad fake tan/white/pale mummy baby. (Haha!) In this first lab (of 3) we have to open up each region of the body (mouth, neck, chest, and digestive system. Really, I wanted to just get it over with. My partner was less then willing to do any of the actual work, so I took the lead. I (ME!), did all the stabbing, cutting, and yes…ripping with my hands! If you just turn your mind off, it isn’t so bad, but after the first hour, it got to be to much and I was just done. I won’t get too gory, but I left smelling of death or formaldehyde (also having touched things you should never touch. Think intestines, hearts, stomachs, etc.). Next week it’s on to the veins and arteries…what a joy 😛
Now, as I try to erase all that from my mind, you can flood your own mind with these great posts and pins from the week! Happy Friday! XOXO
