We may be liars preaching to choirs
But we can
We can sell your dreams
Riptide - Vance Joy (2014)
I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You’re the magician’s assistant in their dream

I read somewhere that sirens/mermaids sang songs that they heard from sailors on passing ships. I imagine this is what a modern siren would sound like singing this song.
So I had my first rotation in the microbiology department this week.. And I’m so disappointed. The tech I’m with whose supposed to be teaching me assumes that I’ve never seen a CFU before and can’t differentiate between anaerobic and aerobic organisms. She kept repeating “Now I’m not going to turn you into a microbiologist in two weeks..”
BITCH, what the fuck do you think I’ve been doing for the past year? Sitting in classes/labs with my thumb up my ass? I’m a bio/micro TUTOR and LAB ASSISTANT — I know my staph from strep, thank you. Please stop wasting my precious time, or at least fucking let me DO SOMETHING. Literally all I’ve observed that I’d classify as remotely difficult (and I use that word so loosely) is a C. diff test, and that’s only because there are two different machines the sample sits on for different amounts of time. And MAYBE getting the blood from a culture tube into a BacT tube without making a mess. I love micro - but this rotation is making me so frustrated and hate the whole situation I was forced into even more.
Also, please put some fucking gloves on. You’re handling feces and urine for Christ’s sake!
