One of my most favorite moments in the world is when a patient asks you, ” I don’t understand this, can’t you just explain it to me?!” And then you read the orders—verbatim—and they say, “Ohhhhhh, okay it makes sense now.”

Dedication is my greatest strength and weakness.

This week: I shall be productive, studious, and I will review/study at a pace far more intense than ever before.

Listening to “Polish Girl” by Neon Indian pretty much this entire day. A repeat button abuser.

The awkward moment when you find that lecture videos & slides from other schools help you more than your own slides.

Less Violent TV May Improve Kids’ BehaviorTeaching parents to switch channels from violent shows to educational TV can improve preschoolers’ behavior, even without getting them to watch less, a study found.The results were modest and faded over time, but may hold promise for finding ways to help young children avoid aggressive, violent behavior, the study authors and other doctors say. “It’s not just about turning off the television. It’s about changing the channel. What children watch is as important as how much they watch,” says lead author Dimitri Christakis, a pediatrician and researcher at Seattle Children’s Research Institute.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/02/less-violent-tv-may-improve-kids-behavior

Probably less TV all together and more interaction with books and other children would improve social skills and therefore behavior. Whatever happened to the days of “Arthur” & “Magic School Bus”? Where you could read the book and then look forward to the show teaching you something cool? I weep for the future.

Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) or Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA)

The enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is a powerful method for detecting and quantifying a specific protein in a complex mixture. Originally described by Engvall and Perlmann (1971), the method enables analysis of protein samples immobilized in microplate wells using specific antibodies. The technique has revolutionized immunology and is commonly used in medical research laboratories. ELISA also has commercial applications, including the detection of disease markers and allergens in the diagnostic and food industries. (SOURCE)

I am reviewing some things from immunology but they are still useful for followers! :D

Just purchased a new wireless printer. Now, I feel like everything must be printed.

Just finished looking over my dad’s MRI. I cannot wait until I can say, “told you so”.

Just waiting patiently. If I wasn’t busy, I would be more than eager to accompany him on his appointment. 

This rug brings back so many memories. I remember I wanted it so bad and I would see it everyday at Home Depot (my dad’s a contractor) and I would beg for it and cry and finally, I accepted the fact that I would never get it so I would just “visit” it and play with it in the store.
I know that my children will need to have this rug in their life. It’s just the best.
