Fun Things I'm Learning in Micro

1. I suck at preparing T-smear petri plates.  I gouged every one of mine.
2. I'm pretty good with a stain and a microscope.
3. Staph is actually really pretty.  It looks like lots of teeny tiny purple dots.
4. There are a lot of things that cause diarrhea.
5. I never want to be immunocompromised.  There is a fungus that will eat your face off if not caught and treated.  It's found everywhere, but you won't get it unless you're immunocompromised.
6. Fungi is a fun word to say.  Fungi fungi fungi.
7. Pinworms crawl out of your butt at night to lay their eggs. 
8. Wash your hands, there are microbes everywhere!
