Hi, I’m back. The last couple weeks were consumed by an anatomy exam (and then some “special projects” I will remain deliberately mysterious about). The exam seemed easy except for a few questions with diagrams that looked like they’d been scribbled on the back of an envelope with a crayon and then photocopied 12 times. “Label this.” Okaaaay …

I originally intended to be an efficient underachiever, and accept much less than an A for the course, but … turns out I get sucked into anatomy. I really went for it! And I’ve now probably achieved peak musculoskeletal anatomy knowledge — I’ll never have it more down than this.
