First, because the North Korea situation distracted me from studying all morning. In my defense, I woke up to headlines that said, in order, North Korea threatens ‘sea of fire’ as South begins war games with US, US and S. Korea move forward with war exercises, and South Korea Artillery Mistakenly Fired on DMZ1. I’m now hoping North Korea is doing that thing where they threaten people with death for looking in their general direction and then crazy on over to some other idea and forget all about it.
… So yeah, I wasted about 3 hours on google news. Embryology just doesn’t compare. I’m sorry, embryos – you’re interesting and all, but we’re talking about a pre-apocalyptic world here.
Second, because Boyfriend taught me how to draw blood today. It’s not as bad as I thought – but something about visible veins has always creeped me out 2 … and I don’t think I’ve gotten over it yet. At all.
Honestly, if I have to predict how this is going to go down, I’d say that in a few months I’ll stick someone with good veins and feel really proud and happy that I’ve overcome my fear of veins, then turn right around and have to spend 15 minutes trying to find a vein on someone else and I’ll probably pass out.
So. Good things, clearly, are ahead.
