Good day.

Today was just an ordinary day.

But, it was an ordinarily good day.

1. I gave some more flu shots. And talked about marriage (specifically arranged ones) with Dr. Aguwa who is from Africa. It was a bunch of girls giving flu shots...naturally, the topic came up. We talked a lot about their very family oriented culture (cool stuff).

2. I studied and went to a histology review session on muscles. Let me just say, when it comes to muscles, there is much more than meets the eye. Specifically neuromuscular junctions. Check it out.

This is real. It's skeletal muscle and nerves innervating it. The little bulb-like ends are where chemicals are released to tell the muscle to contract. That's the neuromuscular junction. Cool, huh?
3. Spoke on a panel of of students for perspective students of MSUCOM. Then toured and answered tons of questions. SO FUN! Met a retired AF pilot, and his aspiring doctor son, a woman interested in medical missions, and a guy who was so excited about hopefully joining the AF in the HPSP program. 

4. Went shopping! Amanda had coupons to New York Company and I needed to purchase a gift for a very special birthday girl who lives far, far away : ) So, we had to go to the mall. Let me just say, I saved $120.69!! Now, if I were you I'd be thinking, "HOW MUCH DID SHE SPEND!?" So, let me tell you I got some great buys totaling $140. It included 1 pair of awesome jeans, 1 equally awesome pair of dress, tweed pants, 2 of the softest, most perfect sweaters with really cute buttons, a great tank top with lots of ruffles, and a white button up that fits so well! (looking like a professional is going to be fun...) And some earrings...
Now, do the math:
$140 divided by 7 items = $20 per item!!
Can't you tell I'm excited?! I even took a picture of the clothes nicely arranged on the couch so you can see.

5. Then I came home and opened a letter from Somerset Beach Campground. Inside was a calendar...which I think I'll be cutting up and framing as my next art project (there were some awesome pictures in it!) And in the letter was a verse. A verse I had to share.

"Be joyful always; pray continuously; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

6. It's Friday. 

7. We didn't have class today. 


  1. 8. I got to see you! Which was my favorite part of my day :)

  2. ps. I appreciated the muscle histology.....SO COOL!

  3. Aspiring doctor son??? Hmm... Sounds like a nice boy, Amy...

  4. Two words Andrew. Not Interested :)

  5. Very interesting info on the neuromuscular stuff. The more detailed the body becomes makes we wonder how any Doctor/Scientist couldn't believe in a creator? Looking forward to Thanksgiving! Dad
