My alarm is a clock radio and while I don’t move it or touch it other than to set the time that it goes off, sometimes it just decides that radio waves are far more volatile than they really are. Or that the towers from which they are broadcast must be completely mobile and that the signals can just one day up and disappear. And I’m talking about the local FM stations like X103 (YES I LOVE THAT STATION, ESPECIALLY TODD AND THE DEUCE!).
Anyway, it’s bad enough getting woken up from REM sleep by loud noises, but even worse when the sound that comes out of the clock radio is straight up white noise.
But I am awake and it is 8 AM! And it is Monday. We had clusters last week which is why I’ve been completely off the map. It was my birthday last Tuesday, too.
“omgosh, cathryn, what did you do?!”
I appeared for our morning study session before the therapeutics exam and my wonderful buddies had gotten me a cookie cake. I can’t tell you how they knew how much I love cookie cake. BUT THEY KNEW. It was amazing! So we feasted on cookie cake before the exam!
Then we left for the exam (which I had to take an hour early with about 1/3 of the class because we had electives at 2), and then I had my Public Health class. I was sick and I was having one of those THE VIRUS IS TAKING OVER MY BRAIN days. Like I thought I was turning into a Walking Dead zombie.
Even though I was tired and I probably gave the virus to Curtis over the weekend, we went out for Mexican food and then it was back to studying. It was a good day though!
