On In the Walls

@Roaring Girl yes, the tests were AWFUL. "here, look at this teeeeeeny, tiiiiiiiny shard of bone and tell me whether or not it was a male, a female, how old it was, if you can identify any trauma, or if this is actually part of a raccoon". woooof.

On In the Walls

in college I thought I wanted to be a forensic anthropologist, and I took a class that culminated in a trip to the Body Farm in Knoxville, Tennessee, which is where they perform various experiments of sorts on corpses to see how environmental factors affect decomposition patterns. So. That day I learned many many things about maggots and chemotherapy and trepanation and saw lots and lots and lots of dead people. Fun times! Though the good thing was that I learned that I was not really capable of the job, so that was something.

i'm at $500 a month for a room in a massive house in crown heights. pretty deep in, however, so it's a long commute to anywhere.
