I thought that anatomy took the cake for gross and disturbing. Well, a challanger has made it's way into the arena. It's name...Microbiology! Have you ever seen what is living on your hands, tongue, under your fingernails, or inside your belly button? Have you stopped to think what kinds of things might be growing on your kitchen sink or the sheets on your bed? Let me just tell you this. I believe that after I have completed this course, I will be a more paranoid and disturbed person. It's so repulsively intriguing. It is only two days into the class and I am already freaked out of my mind! In the case of medical science, what you don't know can hurt you, so I guess it's for the greater good to willingly expose myself to this microscopic world of living, crawling, life-endangering, and mostly, life-saving world. These little creatures actually do a lot more good than harm. It's honestly fascinating thinking about the days when they didn't know what spread communicable disease. Now we know that it's bacteria, viruses, etc. Can you imagine being the first to discover the microscopic world of millions and zillions of little organisms occupying everything you see? I mean, how freaked out would you be?! Anyhow, I am hooked in a terrified sort of way, so we'll see how it goes. I am also in physiology. I am going to be extremely busy, but after this semester I will be done with pre-req's. Que Coisa!
