Micro – revisitedMarch 30, 2006
Well, I got a 89% on the last exam. That doesn’t bring my grade up to an A, still hanging at a B+. I missed some stupid ones, like always.
We just covered vaccinations in class and now are covering diseases. If you need to know anything about vaccinations, ask me. 🙂 I would be happy to share my knowledge. One disease you might want to consider thinking about, if you do not vaccinate is Congenital Rubella Syndrome. We saw pictures of babies that were born with this disease. It was sad. It is a disease that affects newborns whose mom was not ever exposed to the disease until she is pregnant.
I was also amazed by the charts on how vaccinations have brought diseases down from the 1960’s to current. We are very lucky to live in a country that has developed and implemented these programs. A lady next to me in class is from Africa. She has told stories of her people in Africa and the diseases she has seen, first hand and the crippling side effects of the diseases.
Two other things I need to comment on as I have read other blogs and other online communities.
1. Rape is not okay, no matter what your profession is, no matter what you are wearing, no matter if you are intoxicated or whatever. If you are a stripper at a night club or at a party, you do not deserve to be raped. Being in these types of professions and environments will increase the risk of being raped, but that does not mean it is deserved. I hate that mentality.
2. Faking your own death in an online community is just dumb. Don’t do it. Don’t go there. I feel bad for all of the people that have recently lost a loved one who thought they were losing an online friend. I was in chat room with the “deceased” last night and it was incredible all of the lies and bs she was saying. I don’t know if she did this to get out of swaps or to get people to send her $$ or what. Man, if you join swaps and find out you can’t do them, just say so.
It isn’t the first time I ran across this online. I am surprised she didn’t come back and say her kid broke into her account why she was away and concocted the whole story…heard that one before years ago on a birth board.
I do have another (big) test next week…it is never ending, huh? I have 3 more weeks and then finals. WOW…putting that in writing makes it so real. I am going to do something craft tonight…stay tuned. 😉
