Call me a dork...

...but I actually really enjoyed my Organic Lab this weekend (on a Saturday!)

We took a normal Excedrin tablet....
crushed it up into a powder form, and extracted the caffeine, acetaminophen, and aspirin out of it.
It was SO cool.  I am starting to understand why Organic is actually pretty important to medicine. I don't like it any better, but at least it's useful for something :) 

Random Anatomy Fact: The body has 206 bones!
Luckily, I don't have to memorize ALL of them now (I will, eventually), but I do need to know the bulk of them...It's not really hard learning the bones, but learning all the holes, and dips, and processes, and angles and lines and stuff on each bone is definitely hard. We JUST learned it on Saturday and we have a quiz already on Tuesday.. Ugh... Here's a scapula (shoulder blade) and all of it's labels..
 
I also went to the Edison Festival of Lights on Saturday night, but honestly, nothing was noteworthy about it.. Except it took me 45 minutes to get home.. I live 10 minutes away. 
This week will be uneventful, so don't expect much blogging, but I am for sure counting down the days until Friday. I am heading home for a quick trip for Rob and Christie's wedding. Yay. Congrats to them. :)

 

 I hope everyone has a really good week!!!
P.S. Hi Josh :)
