Killing time, not people

I’m sitting on my couch killing time before my last final. I am so happy to be done. The semester was busy and I tried to (unsuccessfully) figure out timing, but it has gone pretty well. It did start out rocky, though. I went home in tears after the first day of classes because I felt so lost and so confused. Not the subject matter, but everything else. I hadn’t really met anyone and I didn’t know where anything was, especially parking. All I needed was to find out that there was a test I never studied for and the day would have been a nightmare. Wait, I’d have to be naked, too.

After my first semester I’m very happy. I have a lot of friends. I guess I should clarify it by saying school friends. I enjoy talking to and studying with them. I’m being noticed by my professors in a good way, which will become important when I apply for DI programs.

At the start of the semester, I was so worried that I had just ruined my life. I mean, I liked nutrition and reading about nutrition-y things online, but I was concerned that I would hate my classes and everything I’m learning. Let me tell you, I love what I’m learning, especially the biochemistry. Wait, check that. I love everything I’m learning, especially the biochemistry, but I LOATHE the management portion. Thank goodness I don’t ever have to take a management class again. I think. I do know it’s a topic on the Dietitian exam, so I will have to go over it again. Ugh. Either way, I love it. So much so, I think I’m annoying the Husband with all the cool things I’m learning. I don’t understand why. I’m only telling him stuff every 5 seconds with about half of it being somewhat disgusting…oh wait. Now I get it.

I also hate food safety. It is important I just…I can only cook if I wash my hands eleventy-billion times and I’m trying to figure out how to completely sterilize my kitchen, because, GERMS ARE EVERYWHERE!!!!!! I am now religiously using my meat thermometer because if my meat is not cooked to proper temperatures, I will DIE from the GERMS!!!!!!! I just looked at my kitchen and I think I now have salmonella. Don’t get me started on pesticides and various toxins. And am avoiding thinking about GM0s, because I do believe that one day they will be the cause of the zombie apocalypse. Fortunately, I did not put that down on a test.

Oy. Microbiology is going to be interesting next summer.

It's funny to scare mommy with germs.

  1. Husband needs to take a page from my book – I ended up reading case studies to MK while she was in med school. (They were neat!)
