Youtube Repeat

Have you ever been listening to a song you really love on Youtube but every time it ends you have to go back to the video and click "Replay"?? So obnoxious.

Well, I have a solution for YOU!

1st, go to the Youtube page of the song.

Now go up to the URL

After the "youtube" part of "", type in the word "repeat"


then becomes.... (but don't bold it..)

And it will just repeat the song over and over and over again! Which is the way I love to listen to new songs :)

Current favorite songs are:

(I am actually singing this song for singing lessons! It's so beautiful!!)

Single Awareness Day

aka Valentines Day <3

I've never been a huge fan or dire hater of Valentines Day, basically I'm Switzerland when it comes to this holiday of love.
But tomorrow I and some of my friends have decided to watch a nice horror movie to celebrate this fantastic day of love! What better way than to get the bejeezers scared out of you with your best friends?? I can't think of one...

Here are some songs to improve your wonderful day!

The Brain

This week in Anatomy lab we learned about the brain and spinal column.
I even held a brain! And let me tell you folks, it was AWESOME. The brain is so extremely detailed and intricate and strangely beautiful!
My favorite part would be the arbor vitae which means "tree life" and the part actually looks like the tree of life!!

isn't that awesome?!

Another really cool part of lab this week is that they had a mid-sagittal (directly in middle) cut of a head with the face and brain all still attached, just halved! So we were able to see clearly how all the skull foramen (holes) and pieces all fit together and worked with the brain! I was literally sitting there with my jaw dropped in awe and gasping, it was probably one of the coolest things I have seen EVER.

ALSO, in my Anatomy lecture last night we were discussing the different lobes of the brain (frontal, parietal, occipital, temporal, insula) and the topic of lobotomy's came up! And so we discussed that and after class one of the TA's had a video for those who wanted to stay and watch. Of course I did! And it was seriously crazy to see how they did lobotomy's back in the day, literally take ice picks from the freezer and jab them through your orbital fissure behind your eyeball and then mess around with your frontal lobe. The purpose of lobotomy's was to attempt to change personalities and many prisoners had them done in exchange for an early parole because they were so dangerous!

Here is the video we watched in class! It was shown on PBS so it's not too bad but it was rate TV-14, so BEWARE! :)

Hopefully this post doesn't creep anyone out but honestly, it is amazing how something made up of tissue and... "goo" can create memories and store so much information!

Yay for Anatomy! :)

peace out.
