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 wanted to title this post “Fall Break” and realized everyone probably has a blog called “fall break” so I titled it “fall breakin” and… I don’t know why. I turned fall break into a verb and you can’t stop me.
The leaves are not turning as quickly as I like. Here is evidence.
I’d say we’re at 30% capacity right now. WEAK, TREES.
Hopefully in a week or two we’ll see some real autumn colors. Pah. It barely even feels like fall break, nature. Do I have to do everything myself?
Actually, I was disappointed because it was rather warm yesterday and I went to campus Starbucks to get a salted caramel mocha (I prefer these to pumpkin spice lattes this year, sorry pumpkins!), and I actually was craving a green tea lemonade instead. I am an autumn traitor.
BUT. I want to point out that pumpkin spice latte ice cream is a thing. And I am excited. All I know is, this fall break (which I’m spending half at home in Cincinnati and half at my regular home in Indy), I will be doing a whole lot of NOTHING. And maybe some Panopto. :/ Meanwhile, trees, I expect results.
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.
