I was always the slightly odd girl. I was the awkward one who would rather study organisms under the microscope than window-shop at the mall with the other girls. I spent my 8th grade summer studying forensic investigation and fingerprint analysis. I carried gloves and plastic bags in an ice-chest in my car's trunk just in case I found good roadkill to dissect on the way to school in the morning. I've emailed photos of anatomical anomalies I've found in animals to professors and doctors and spent hours gloved-up in anatomy labs. I've seen the inside of a belly-button. I know what your brain feels like.
