Finally a heartfelt entry! [Oct. 4th, 2006|12:04 pm]

[Current Mood |happyhappy]

I got an A on my Botany exam!! The professor put the demographics on the board before handing them out...only four people got A's and ten people got D's. I almost fainted with relief when I saw the grade.
I guess that even though I've been struggling with all the material, most people are having an even harder time than I am. Still...plants are so damn amazing! I had no idea how awesome they were until this class opened all the doors. Now I see why Ari's such a botany nerd (i.e. "My speckled beans are sprouting!"), lol.

We got to condense our own DNA in GOP lab...that was way cool. Then we got to put it into a see-through necklace to give as a gift.
I have only one thing to say to this: hey hey hot stuff, wanna make me a clone?? ;)

Also, the residents' cafeteria was serving couscous today! Do you know how long it's been since I had that? Sooo delicious.
It still makes me laugh though, because that cafeteria's motto is "All You Care to Eat". That doesn't sound very appetizing...
-----------------------------------------------------
This is the first time in my life that I've had to deal with being half-assed about homework. I'm healing, so my OCD hyper-perfectionism is beginning to fade. I'm still doing fine, but it's hard to find other ways to make myself study because I've relied on "being made to study" by my own self for so long. Now it's just...I enjoy homework, but there's all these other neat things I can do with my time too, so homework can wait a bit longer...
I wonder...am I still Amanda?

It's a little see-through vial, the top of which I sealed with super glue. Apparently the chromosomes stay permantently condensed (and therefore permanently visible) after the experiment ends so the little white wisps of DNA can always be seen. It's pretty neat, though also kinda creepy.
I gave mine to Ari, who's now been wearing his girlfriend's DNA all day around his neck :)

I sure am glad to hear it :)
And, it will one day. You've just gotta get to the right stage in your life before it does.

Hun, things have been a lot better since we stopped talking on IM. I'm enjoying the LJ comments and I'm glad to still be able to be your friend. IM was just too much pressure and it scares me to talk to people on there regularly anyway.
