1st Day Second Semester

Today was my first day of my second semester of vet school and it went well. It was good to be back. The classes seem very interesting so far. Today I had parasitology, epidemiology, physiology of the kidney (I know why your pee smells like coffee after you've had a cup of Joe) and Anatomy.

All 3 cats are now down here since Matt will be here typically for 4 nights now instead of 2. Heathcliff is super afraid of the digs, and Garfield is holding is own adjusting. Hopefully they will be like Isabelle soon. She loves it here. She is scared of the dogs but doesn't run under the bed all the time anymore. Poor kitties won't see Matt for 10 days now, since I am off to Orlando this weekend for a VBMA conference. That is one disadvantage about not taking the job down here. I hope that once we are in a regular rhythm the change will be much better than last semester. But for now its 10 days without my other half and not too much studying to do just yet.

Here's to another strong semester and hopefully happier times!

I don't think I ever learned about coffee pee. Good luck with the semester.

Basically the proximal convoluted tubule is responsible for filtering out the caffeine from coffee and that is why your pee will smell after drinking some coffee. Your body doesn't need the caffeine so it gets secreted then excreted pretty fast.
