It's December already?

Time flies. I only wish I could say its because I've been having fun...

Okay, someone tell me--why does time speed up as you get older?

I've been up for a bit doing some studying already. I'm taking a break early this afternoon to head over to the BODIES...The Exhibition with some friends.

My brother and his wife saw it and they thought it was well worth the trip. If I like it as much as I expect to, I'm actually already thinking about going again with my parents. My dad is a retired Biology professor who taught a wide variety of courses, including Anatomy and Physiology, Cytotechnology, and others. My mother has a nursing background as well. When I was growing up, there was no shortage of interesting reading in our home. My Dad used to take me into the lab and let me play around with the microscopes and look at all kinds of cool stuff. No wonder I ended up with a career where two of the departments that use microscopes (Hematology and Blood Bank) are my favorite, lol. I'd never really thought of that before. :) My Dad was one of those sneaky educators. *gg*

Anyway, I'm hoping all the great reviews Bodies...The Exhibit have already garnered will bode well for my experience today. (Can you tell I'm looking forward to it?)

Before I dash out this morning, I thought I'd share an interesting survey I was tagged with. Some of the questions made me think. I've really enjoyed reading through the answers from my friends. The answers span from funny to tearful, and I was touched by many. In lieu of tagging all my friends, though, I'll simply post my answers here and you can take the survey yourself if you're interested.
