So, you've read about how fun my spring break was, and now it's back to the daily routine of classes and work, homework and meetings. I can't help but feel the slightest tingling of Senioritis leaking into my brain when I glance out the window during lab to see the sun shining. I am torn though; wanting the semester to be over means graduation, a step that I'm honestly not sure if I'm ready for just because, personally, I hate change. I also know that 10 days after I walk across that stage, I begin the graduate PA program here at LHU which both excites and scares me! Unfortunately, my professors have not gotten senioritis, and so my homework load has been the same as ever and is refusing to let me slack off!
This week is my week for dissection in the cadaver lab. Our assignment has been the posterior (back side of) the upper and lower arm. It's a little tricky and very involved, but I'll be honest- it's rather interesting. Yesterday, I dissected for about 3 hours and then returned to my usual spot in Starbucks, where I was asked by a friend if I had just been dissecting. I relied with a weary 'yes', and she continued to explain that she could tell because I smelled like her high school Bio lab. Oh, the joys of being a health science major. Needless to say, I returned home and took a shower.
In other news, this week I will be hosting the usual Thursday night dinner complete with theological bible study to follow. The menu for this Thursday is rather exciting however; last night I began preparations for the chicken breast stuffed with freshly shredded spinach in a mixture of ricotta and garlic Italian cheeses breaded and baked to perfection before being lightly covered in a sweet tomato sauce. This entree would of course not be complete without my famous garlic and basil potatoes, for which I will begin preparations tonight. I'm just saying, my friends are very lucky people.
The last bit of exciting news I have to share for this week is that Saturday, so long as the weather permits, a group of us NewLifers will be going up to Wellsboro, PA to hike the PA Grand Canyon on Saturday. There are several of us more experienced hikers as well as a few inexperienced hikers, so this shall prove to be an interesting day-trip. Then Sunday is April 1st, and I fully plan on retaliating for the balloon incident prior to spring break, so my roommates had better watch out!
