oh, for the love of science!


right now in A&P we are learning about blood. one of my favorite things!
i like drawing molecular formulas for different things, oxytocin being one of my favorites(guess why) and i've been looking more into said formulas of different drugs(which you can actually find on monographs that you should be getting with any prescription drugs you know that big folded up paper in the bag...)

i've always had an interest in chemical composition and drugs are cool and that's my favorite part of pharmaceuticals, but i don't think i'd last through all the school i'd need to get into that area or work. still, it's interesting.
