In my abnormal psychology class, I sit behind a girl who has perfected the art of the messy bun. When I wear my hair in a messy bun, it generally just looks like I have bad hygiene and haven't washed my hair in a week. (Which maybe I haven't, but I don't want other people to know that...) So I spent my last class staring at the back of her head and I realized that her secret is making TWO MESSY BUNS and intertwining them. Don't worry, I was still taking notes and paying attention (the class is actually supremely interesting) but whenever there was a break, I definitely studied her hair just as thoroughly as I will study my notes. Maybe one day I will do a tutorial so that other people can also have perfect messy buns. Probably not, though, so don't get your hopes up.
It's a good thing I paid such close attention in abnormal psychology because I failed my first nursing school test before school even started. I didn't cry, though, because it wasn't a real test, just a TB mask fitting test. Hospitals make you get fitted for TB masks before you can start working, just in case you have a patient with TB. They make you stick your head in a plastic bag and spray a bitter-tasting solution into it until you start to taste the bitterness. I stuck my head in the bag, and they sprayed thirty squirts of the solution in, and I tasted nothing. I was even breathing as hard as I could with my tongue sticking out, and still nothing. Apparently this has never happened before because the lab techs had no idea what to do and just told me that I failed. All that means is that if I happen to have a patient with TB (which is unlikely), I will have to wear a big fancy ET-type mask, which I think will be pretty cool.
