This is the world view from my eyes, as seen through some photo capturing tool that the geniuses of history have perfected.

Guilt. Coffee. Insane.

Every time I check my E-mail to find a new follower or a like from a tried and true follower, I’m ridden with guilt. I’ve been so busy I’ve resorted to such large amounts of caffeine to stay awake that I could probably be admitted to an addiction center. Or maybe I could be admitted straight to the psych ward because I’m so crazy busy. When I disappear, harass me. The guilt will bring me back. I’ll grab another cup of coffee, and actually have a few minutes to enjoy it while creating something that doesn’t require full brain power. It sounds… relaxing.

Cheers to trying to take a few minutes to post something more frequently.

Walks and Talks

Take a walk with me. If you hold my hand, I will hold my breath. Shh, don’t say a word, or you may wake me from this dream.

Study Party

School has taken over my life. Not that I can complain, though. Lovely life.

Peace

I have found that I quite like cardiology. I would like to think it is not all the little hearts I get to draw throughout my notes, but more how far common sense can make me sound like I know what I am talking about. The hearts truly do help, though.

Because of this, I have been able to breathe. I haven’t been losing hair at the normal “stressed out school rate.” I have found balance. Peace.

It is the type of peace that I haven’t found other than when I am hiking in nature or lying in my bed, my safety zone. The picture above was taken during one of those peaceful nature hikes I went on with my sister. I’m hoping I can make it back to this spot this fall when the leaves are just a bit more fall-like with the little bit of extra time this class is giving me. It’s a perfectly beautiful spot, and I’m hoping I can manage to sneak a few more pictures to share with you all.

Sitting Still

I’m back in the swing of things, and have been doing my darn hardest to dominate my courses this year. Translation: a lot of sitting in classrooms, study rooms, or library rooms.

Good thing our classrooms no longer look like this one. Ours are much more… appealing. I’ll count that as a plus.

I took this quick snapshot from the Lake of the Woods Steam and Gas Show. Although I was there this year as well, I have to admit this picture was from a couple of years ago. I, sadly, forgot to bring my camera.

I Recommend Fun

I am procrastinating studying like a student properly should. The good news is, I made time to update this. The bad news is that I have had to re-arrange my study schedule to include more studying. Brilliant.

Aside from all that jazz, I made time for my first ever “race.” I ran The Colour Run 5K (Minnesota Race) this past weekend, and oh my goodness, there is a reason it is known as the Happiest 5K on the Planet. First off, there is no pressure to run the whole thing; it is not timed; there are no medals to be given. Secondly, is a 5K course that, at every kilometer, you run through this colour powder station to get all colourful. The first picture is a group of girls (that I don’t know) coming up to the first colour station: orange. The other stations were pink, yellow, and blue. By the end of the race, you are pretty colourful, but to top it off, they have a grand finale. We are each given our own little packages of colour powder that we throw at the same time, creating this rainbow of fun. The second picture is waiting for more runners to finish for the colour throw, and the last picture shows the very tail end of the finale. The third one is me being silly and documenting completing my first race. My last picture posted (https://nothinghurt.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/busy-busy-bee/) is what the ground we ran on looked like.

My pictures do it no justice. I do have excuses, but I will save them for myself. Google image it, but first be prepared to want to run a race. If that isn’t enough to convince you, watch this official video! Still aren’t convinced? (Why aren’t you convinced?!?) Well, I am here to inform you that on top of having a blast, you will be supporting a local charity. The Minnesota Race sponsored Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless.

Good cause, good exercise, good people, good fun. A girl like me couldn’t ask for more.

 

(I didn’t post a lot of photos from the race because I’m not sure how my friends and friends-of-friends feel about being posted on here. Next time I get a chance, expect photos of me!)

Study With Me, Please

Since I am busy studying for my last official final test of the semester, I thought I would share with you all a day in the life. I’d be lying if I said I was studying this material now; this is all from last week. It doesn’t really matter, though, as this is my general thought process for studying. Scary, huh?

This is about as close as I get to “making art” anymore, which is probably why I am so darn proud of my immunology poster. Well, that and it is clever, witty, and, of course, brilliant. I laughed too, so it’s all good. As a side note, why don’t they have a text that is indicative of sarcasm? Get on it typographers. My blog would seem a lot less arrogant and a lot more funny with this feature. Probably.

I bet you didn’t think you were going to learn much today while casually browsing the lovely WordPress world. I sure tricked you! You now know how macrophages pick up antigens, interactions between macrophages and naive T helper cells, conversion of B-cells to plasma cells, along with the function of plasma cells, and the role of memory cells. It really is that simple.

Hang in there, though, because there is a lot more to learn!
