  1. Yeah, sometimes I feel like I speak another language. As I'm writing resum├ęs for summer internships today it kind of feels like it would be appropriate to include "Languages: English, Spanish, Brainspeak" in my skills section. When I began my intro neurosci class, my professor told me that words like "hypothalamus" and "amygdala" seemed to already role off my tongue. "Yup."
