Yay me.

Wow, I just took my test (the endocrine & nervous system one) and much to my surprise, I made a 100. I was really not feeling at all sure about it - and I did double-check a couple of answers on the endocrine end. I felt much more confident about the nervous system stuff. Although it would help if they would quit including words and abbreviations in the tests that aren't in the book - or in the medical dictionary, in some cases. (One was "NIDDM" - which I decided meant non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The term is in the book somewhere but that abbreviation isn't. Or in Stedman's, either.)

The endocrine system is hard. And I'm already starting to dread the final.

One chapter to go.

Added: I just added up how many terms were in the multiple panes of the vocabulary spreadsheet I've been keeping this whole time: a staggering 3700+. No wonder I'm tearing my hair out. Which would be trichotillomania, if you really want to know.

(The icon came from a fanfiction community, I think, but it seems pretty darn appropriate.)

I am sitting here eating quinoa, which I have never had before in my life, to my knowledge. It's pretty good, really. Like rice with a little more body, or something. I cooked it (and almost scorched it) and then I didn't know what to do with it, so I just threw a little garlic butter in it. I'll have to look for some alternate uses for it. (I guess any recipe with rice would pretty much be a candidate.)

I tried it because it's on Weight Watcher's "filling foods" list, which is sort of a new thing they've come up with this year. I like it, because I am not good with the meal planning, but I can get down with "eat a lot of fruit" as the basis of a diet plan. - That's not all that's on the list, you understand, but I like fruit, generally, so that's the piece of it I gravitated to.
More about food, and an illustration! )
