I don’t know why, but to get my finals study on, I have to (first of all) stay awake.
So my study playlist looks like it’s straight out of 2001 or a bad pop station from now. A little bit of both. And it’s all thanks to Spotify which enables me to add a bunch of songs that I should not be allowed to put together into one playlist.
I’m actually reusing my study list from last year, which consists of N*SYNC, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears–your imagination can fill in the rest. It also has a mix of Arcade Fire (?) and The Killers. I do not claim to have any taste in music.
It keeps me awake and pumped. Whatever it takes, right? I mean, it’s better than drinking so much coffee that I fall out of my chair.

I’ve had a pretty eventful week.
On Monday I saved a mannequin’s life in CPR certification training. I used an AED and everything!
Then I was rewarded by finding out:
FIVE FREE STARBUCKS DRINKS DURING CLUSTERS? WHY YES THANK YOU.
I have no comment about my costuming skills.
Clusters are under way which menas that cup up there was a venti and I just drank a strawberry shake from the “McCafé.” If I made a chart having to do with my nutritional choices during clusters, it would be in the shape of a Wendy’s Baconator.
ONE LAST THING: I tried the new hazelnut macchiato and it’s kind of meh. You can now go about your business with this knowledge!
I go home to Cincinnati. (Am I doing it wrong?)
The whole plan was to make some Cincinnati appointments and get those done since it’s winter break and it’s a good time for such things. Did I make the calls to do that like a functioning adult? No. But I did start a new game of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on my Gamecube.
I hate to think that’s old school but I guess the Gamecube is now two Nintendo console generations behind. Oh, right, about being home!
COULD MY PHONE TAKE A WORSE PICTURE? Wait, don’t tempt it. I guess I could have been covering the camera with my finger or something. Ugh.
Right, so! I’m at my favorite coffee chain: Caribou Coffee! What’s so special about yet another coffee chain? Well Caribou is cabin/outdoor themed so their ottomans are little bears. And their napkins always have hand-drawn designs on them. AND I think they have better coffee than some other people.
The only Caribou in Indianapolis right now is on IUPUI’s campus, so if you’re down there, check them out.
I know that winter break is drawing to a close and this is my last break for an entire year. And my last semester of classes ever. I guess that’s why I’ve been such a lump–or at least not inclined to schedule myself up with tons of stuff to do. I’m really glad that I got to spend some time writing and with that guy that I live with who I didn’t see at all last semester. (Joke: I’m referring to my husband Curtis, who I hardly saw because of our ridiculous class/work schedules!)
So here’s to the end of break. (Insert groan from all of my friends whose breaks ended long ago and I’m sorry. )
Have you people heard of the magical coffee cart that sells coffee and muffins for $1 each?! It’s called Brewed Awakenings and they stalk the halls to provide shlucks like myself who constantly need a caffeine and sugar fix. I wholeheartedly approve because it means I get coffee without even having to lift a finger! I can get it from our hangout table outside of the Science Library.
Gosh, what a week. I thought I could catch a break after clusters but it’s just been a whirlwind of business ever since. We have oral presentations in case this week and a quiz this Friday. Not to mention that wee little event called the presidential elections.
I’m not letting myself get all psyched up for the elections until I figure out what to do with this case though. This guy with hospital acquired pneumonia is about two seconds away from getting a bandaid and a lollypop though, I’m not even kidding.
It’s totally a Monday.
I must talk about this every year.
Fall is my faaavorite time of year. I know it’s only been September for 14 days, but the minute school starts I’m ready for it to be 60 degrees (or colder! I can do colder!) so I can wear boots and sweaters and scarves and always have a hot beverage in my hand.
(I was about to say “I wish I could share tumblr photosets!” and then I was like … wait, YES I CAN. But I decided not to share the whole thing for credit reasons!)
The leaves aren’t turning quite yet but once they do I will take my real camera to school (not my potato camera phone–which if you don’t know what that is, that’s when you have a really blurry camera that is worthless and might as well be a potato and not a camera).
Today, it’s rainy and it’s only going to be a high of 70. So I am wearing a sweatshirt and boots because 2/3 of my classes are canceled and I don’t care. Ha! Happy Friday, my friends.
Are you looking at going to pharmacy school?
GREAT! Here’s what you’re in for!
8 AM compounding lab. On a Friday. Followed by a 50-minute lecture. Then, lunch break. Then, 50-minute lecture. Then, 3-hour case conference.
Apparently, I have a death wish.
But you know what? I’m going to power through this. Even though I don’t function on less than 8 hours of sleep, which is going to prove interesting because I’m 90% certain I will be getting less than 8 hours tonight. It’s 11:33 PM and I still have some studying to do and lab things to look over.
Let’s just say that Starbucks is going to be my savior tomorrow, even if it costs me $6 for the caffeine I need. And it will. It’s Starbucks.
In other news of how I fail at life, my room is still littered with the spoils of semester move-in. At least all of my sweatpants are on top of the mess. All I care about right now are sweat pants.
So since it’s only day 3 of spring semester and I already feel overwhelmed, here’s that lovely finals shot of Kass and Ashley partaking in pickles in front of the open refrigerator.
Driven to MADNESS.
