I'm Christian Watson. I'm an architecture major here at The Ohio State University. I go to school full time and work as a Customer Service Manager at Kroger. I live in Powell, OH and graduated from Olentangy Liberty High School. I played baseball there for four years. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. I lived there for ten years. I'm an avid sports fan. I follow all Chicago professional sports such as the Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks, and Bulls as well as the Ohio State Buckeyes. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family and friends. I also like to travel to new places, so every year I go visit a new major league baseball stadium. I've been to about half of them so far. It's always a new experience every year.
"No part of the human skin is spared from bacteria. Bacterial counts on the hands range from five thousand to five million colony-forming units per square centimeter" This quote, from Atul Gawande's On Washing Hands, made me literally look at my hands and question how many germs I had on them at that very moment. I felt disgusted and unclean. I enjoyed the short story but was amazed at how easily diseases are pased throughout hospitals. I thought it was an automatic thing for doctors to wash their hands before dealing with a patient. I was shocked when 70% of doctors and nurses washed their hands and the amount of diseases spread was unaffected. The idea that it was a collective effort got across to me very quickly.
