Because I could not come up with a damn thing science related. There was always jugular, but I don't know much about that. So I guess I will just say a little about myself.
I am a bioinformatics major and psychology minor at University of the Sciences. Currently I am a third year student which means I graduate next year! Hopefully I will get into a genetic counseling program, but there's only 25 accredited schools in the country. We shall see!
My stress levels at the moment are through the freakin roof. There isn't one week during April that I don't have at least one exam and starting the week of the 22nd I have 7 finals in one week. But I only have one final during finals week! That makes up for it, I guess. My anxiety has been very high lately, so if there are no posts past the week of the 22nd I didn't survive.
How do you deal with anxiety? What calms you down when you feel extremely stressed?
Answers to yesterdays question: some side effects for X chromosome condensation are certain genes won't be expressed. Some women experience sweating on one side of the body but not on the other. Researchers were able to determine that only one X chromosome condenses by looking at different diseases where a person has an abnormal number of sex chromosomes, such as with Triple X Syndrome. When looking at this person's chromosomes, it was noticed that two of the X chromosomes were condensed, not just one! The body can actually count how many need to be condensed. It's simply amazing :)
