Today I required approval for two things. One for a social psych presentation, and one from the biology department to take a spring course. Not just any spring course. I took histology last term, which is actually a med school course, but they offer it at my school for health science students, and other science students that are brave enough to take it. I did, and it was the hardest thing I’ve done in my years studying biology, hands down. I still have nightmares about it, literally. They’re offering another histology in spring, which promises to be just as challenging (or more, considering it’s completed in half the time), so of course I wanted in. I am always up for a challenge, and the prof is absolutely amazing and highly intelligent. I was fully prepared to be denied, because first priority goes to health science students and the cap on the class is only 10 students (eep!). But my request was approved! YES. I may have done a wee dance outside the bio department where my friend was waiting. Hopefully the prof didn’t see that. :P
I’m home now, working on conservation, and having this tea in celebration. This tea is a delight. I’ve been impressed with the three Market Spice teas I’ve had so far. This one had mint leaves clearly throughout the dry tea, but I always secretly hope they won’t be too prominent. Success! The main flavours here are raspberry, followed by more subtle chocolate. The mint is barely there at all. I find I absolutely love raspberry teas when they are well done. And this one is. :)
Thanks EvaGrimm for sending some my way!
