From the heart...

So, last semester, I had so much fun in Human Anatomy and Physiology, and the info just came so naturally and easily to me. So much so, apparently, that I am now the A&P tutor at my school! It is an actual, paying job, and I've been so excited about it. Today was my first day, and as I imagined, it was fairly slow. The only student I had come to the open lab, was actually a girl I had studied with last semester! She is taking A&P 2 over the summer, so even though I haven't taken the class, I looked it over with her, and basically, she taught me a bit, and I was able to impart the small amounts of knowledge I had about the heart and help her cement that knowledge into her brain. I think I'd be able to take their quiz tomorrow and pass! So, of course, you know I had to take pictures and do some diagrams! So here is the heart, and it's many intricate parts.
