See, I do (occasionally) leave work, and do completely non-medically-related things.
Mostly, crafty- and/or photographically-related things.
[Self high-five for being a (sort of?) Well-Rounded Individual. Stop mid-air when I realize that I spend most of the time not at work, doing non-medically-related things, talking incessantly about medically-related things. Luckily, most of the peeps accompanying me on these non-medical ventures are also medically-oriented/interested. At least they (usually) pretend to be. Thanks (sorry) guys.]
Fishy. Or "OH MY GOD IT'S DORY!!" according to the 17 preschoolers I was surrounded by.
Octopi. (Pods? Pusses? Whatever.)
"Skeeeerrrry" fishy. Again, per the preschoolers. Who's ongoing interpretation of the aquarium tour was much more entertaining than the overly enthusiastic, obviously retired tour guide's. (Sorry buddy.)
On to the butterfly enclosure, where the preschoolers were too busy being wrangled (away from butterflies) for further interpretation. Bummer.
Butterfly. Flying. Turns out they just don't get the whole 'sit still and pose for my d*mn picture' concept. Much like preschoolers.
Except for this guy. I don't know what kind of butterfly you are (still blatantly ignoring tour guide in vain hope they take their extensive bug-knowledge elsewhere, unless they know butterfly for 'Sit! Stay!'), but you are my new favorite.
Until I met this guy. (What? I am an artiste. We're fickle like that.)
Giant moth. Drying out after hatching, or molting, or whatever they do. Kind of gross, but still pretty if you don't think about it too much (P.S. thanks weirdly persistent tour guide).
Anti-predator wing camo. You win tour guide, I *guess* nature is *kind* of interesting.
Raw materials. For glass dish thingy class project. Who ever thought of taking a class to learn a craft?? I mean, when you can just eyeball something and waste countless hours and raw materials with half-@ssed attempts??
More Fun With Raw Materials (while the teach wasn't looking).
Work in progress.
(Almost) Finished Product. Which actually looks somewhat like it's supposed to. On the first try. With no crying or throwing of things. Note to self: Craft classes are the BEST.
What it's supposed to look like. Not bad right?
Another cool glass thingy creation. Which I could probably totally make now too. Because, you know, I actually took the class.
Oh yeah. Also, it appears that I matched.
Except I don’t find out where I matched until Friday.
We are not amused.
I’m trying not to think about it too much.
And on that note, back to gynecologic cancers……
