as for myself, i was still severely congested and my face was being crushed by the sinus pressure, so after 11pm, i took an antihistimine and knocked out until morning. according to my mom, i did wake up at around 1am to walk back to my room and ask why there were colored blocks on the tv??? haha, don't remember at all.
today i'm working eve shift (3-11p) instead of my regular night. so i'm just practicing ochem (quiz on monday, ahhhhahahahahahhhh) and drinking coffee and indulging in STRFKR. i have Bury Us Alive on repeat for the last two days.
and now for the friday 5!
you can answer for yourself or see others' answers here: http://f.riday5.com/?p=703
- What was the cause of your last working up a sweat?
blahhhhhhh... just lying around at home i'm sweating! can't wait for the humidity to pass and the trade winds to return! i'm feeling a hint of trades today, hopefully we're back to normal soon. :)
as for reqular exercising, haven't been doing much of that lately, unless you count running after buses or walking back and forth between two chemistry analyzers during morning rounds.
- What routine part of your life seems to take more mental effort for you than for most others?
i'm kind of bad at mental math. i can do it, but i'm slow. especially if you're asking me dilutions like, how do i make a 10% formalin PBS solution form formaldehyde (formalin is 37% formaldehyde). my comrades will be like, dilute the formaldehyde to 37% with formalin and then fill with PBS to volume so if you are making a 50ml of formalin PBS you need 18ml...
and i'm still going in my head, WAIT, WUT? 37% IS HOW MUCH OF 100ML? SLOWWWW DOWWWWWN! i end up having to write it out or the crickets are chirping for a few minutes before i can confirm their mental math. :/
- What’s something many others consider laborious but you consider rather easy?
oooooh, i love to be in processing section at work. i am pretty good at separating tests, aliquoting, and remembering where they are to be sent off at work. the tests are written in a test code, not plain english, so it's a feat for first timers to remember things like ANA=0.5ml serum sent to west vs. ANARX= two 0.5ml serum aliquots sent to west. or LUPAC= double spun citrate plasma, frozen. or VD25=0.5ml serum sent to CPL frozen. CRYAG= red top sterile serum sent to ARUP vs. CRYO= red top clotted at 37ºC sent to west. i just know these things- my brain is like a recipe book, hahah. i think i could make a pretty good bar tender.
- What’s something you’re going to have to do really soon but have been putting off just because it’s going to be a lot of work?
Calc 2 homework. i haven't done any of chapter 6. U___U
- Where’s the steepest hill in your neighborhood?
Concordia St. is up the hill from my house and it is A HILL to be reckoned with. i haven't even attempted biking up Concordia- i'll go all the way to the intersection and make a U-turn to get on Puowaina, if i ever head up that way, instead of going the few yards up Concordia. just nasty.
I MADE IT TO RED WORLD IN ONE TOUCH DRAWING! (with no cheats, hell yeah. love puzzles~)
and I GOT THE MARBLES POP OUT! (uhhhh, i can only do it one out of 5 times but, i'm still practicing. soon i will be pro!)
and don't forget, you better be dancing while you read this:
