I am home. nobody else is. it's nice to have my old blanket and a bedroom door to close. and to be able to sleep in the dark. it's not nice that apparently a few days away from neem oil baths means the scabies went to town and I now look like I've fallen down the stairs a few times, with large red/grey blotches all over my body. oddly enough they don't so much itch as just ache and make me profoundly uncomfortable. maybe I just have leprosy or something. fun times. I have a doctor here, though, so assuming it is scabies and not plague or something, I should be fine in a few days.
also, I'm definitely intrigued by the radiologic imaging sciences program at UAMS. I've always thought MRIs and things were pretty cool, and it occurs to me now (having talked to an egyptology major) that anthropology totally uses this technology all the time now.
I really just want to finish something and feel like an independent, respectable, accomplished adult. rad tech would be no longer than nursing, just as secure (if the bureau of labour statistics knows what it's talking about), slightly better paid, and without the piss shit and blood factor that sort of terrified me/brought me to the verge of fainting. it helps people, and its kind of wicked awesome (I tried to resize this to be an LJ icon for a while but failed), so I guess the last question is whether or not I would like it at all.
