My Very Talented Friend - Olivia

My birthday was a few weeks ago and with great fanfare, my friend Olivia arrived.  Coming off her long plane ride, she was bubbly, I was excited.  Happy to see her!

She and I met this past school year while "loving" ochem.  She with her myriad of pen colors to highlight that which was important and that which was not, me with my online purchase of balls and sticks; we survived by working problems, talking through solutions...

or rather, we survived because we did not know how to do otherwise.

At the end of the school year when I hesitantly said my journey to med school had probably ended in May with biochem (got a dreaded "B"), she laughed and said, "WE SURVIVED OCHEM!  You cannot give up now!"

Laughing we said we should have shirts made... for my birthday, what you see below is hers.  She had it done for me, and for her.  There are only two of them in the world, and I think, I might have to get mine framed.

Her work could be sold.  Look at the details - the molecules, the boat out on the ocean of water molecules... really, take a good hard look.


And she wonders if she's talented!!!

Typical pre-med :)

Hope you're enjoying a fabulous holiday weekend!
