MICROBIOLOGY GRAM STAINING


(Gram negative E. Coli and Gram positive Bacillus subtilis) 


Today we learned about gram staining in my microbiology lab. The cell walls of different bacteria determine how well the stain will adhere and thus determine the color. Gram positive bacteria have a cell wall with a thick layer of peptidogylcan and stains love them, but gram negative bacteria have thin layers of peptidogylcan with an extra lipopolysacarrhide outer member and don't take stain well (this alps makes them more resistant to certain antibiotics). It's important as a doctor to know which type of bacteria your patient might be infected with in order to treat the condition properly! 

SNOW DAYS❄️❄️

                                           
Snowpocalypse 2016 has officially arrived. I honestly believed we got more ice than snow last night , but I couldn't resist the temptation to go out and play! The duck boots my mom got me for Christmas were made just for the occasion.






NEW YEARS DAY

Welcome 2016! 
I hope everyone had a fun NYE, I kept my night pretty simple by watching movies until midnight. 

The first morning of 2016, to start it off right, I made eggnog French toast



It was the easiest thing to make:


Leftover eggnog from Christmas- 3/4 cups
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon 
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 
- dip Texas toast of any bread of your choosing and place in a frying pan or girdle 

So yummy!


I also went ice skating later on that day with my best friend. We used to go to skate camp so it came back to me like riding a bike!
