Comparative Physiology

The past few weeks have been sort of nuts, namely in the form of scholarship essays, physics, physics, more physics, music compositions, physics, well, you get the idea. Which meant comparative physiology kept getting pushed aside, and only half a chapter of reading got done.

Leaving three and a half long, complex chapters on neural firing, synapses, sensory processes, and endocrine systems to read before my exam Tuesday, starting on Saturday. Clearly, the only way to get through this much reading (and I mean, all I did for three days was eat, sleep, and read comparative phys. I read for about 10 hours straight each day, at least), was to knit a pair of socks while doing so.

Start, Saturday afternoon, halfway through Neurons:

Saturday night, done with Neurons, halfway through Synapses:

Sunday afternoon, done with Synapses:

Sunday night, done with Sensory Processes:

Monday night, 2/3 of the way through Endocrine Systems (sock #2):

At this point, I was done with the material for the test, so ended my frantic weekend of Comparative Phys. I took the test, got an A, and was happy.

However, the socks still needed to be finished...
And textbooks don't suddenly get more interesting just because you've taken another exam...

Done with Endocrine Systems and Intro to Gas Systems:

And finally, done with Breathing Physiology:
