Guilt. Coffee. Insane.

image

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.

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.

Beautiful Blogger Award and Life

Cheers to being back in school!

I feel like I should apologize for the significant lack of posting this summer, however, I don’t think I will. I’m happy that I took the time off; I’d like to hope that you are all happy that I didn’t post something just to post something for you.

I was also quite surprised to return to see two “Beautiful Blogger Award” nomination things waiting for me! I’d like to thank Jaimee and Mr. Weissel for nominating me, and I urge you to check out their sites as well.

Apparently there are rules to this game. So, I’ll nominate some of my favourites (in randomized order) to receive the beautiful blogger award as well, and then I tell you seven facts about myself.

http://fortheloveofnike.com/  I really wish I could long-term borrow all of her shoes. And probably her closet as well. *crossing fingers she has big feet like me*

http://brokenlightcollective.wordpress.com/ This is a site that is dedicated to various artists who have struggled with some sort of mental illness and care to document and share their struggles. All I can say is that there are some wonderful artists out there who are much stronger than I could ever be.

http://gaia365.wordpress.com/  His photos keep me in awe. There really isn’t much more to say.

http://ojproctor.wordpress.com/ I love his unique photography perspective. Not going to lie, he probably somewhat changed the way I look through a camera.

http://jdhascup.wordpress.com/ His blog fills me with wanderlust. And he makes me jealous that I am cooped up in a windowless classroom 98% of my day.

http://domesticdivamd.com/  Funny medical stories and there’s food?? Count me in!

I don’t get much time to read other people’s blogs, for some odd reason.

Now for seven facts, and I hope I don’t accidentally repeat any from my birthday facts post.

1. In high school I considered going to college to be a fashion designer. I also considered being a chiropractor.

2. I like to cook/bake in my free time. In fact, I recently made a homemade stuffed crust pepperoni pizza. Gosh, I love pizza.

3. I know I have mentioned this in the past somewhere on here, but I am a coupon-er. Like almost extreme coupon-er. I refuse to pay more than $0.50 for a tube of toothpaste or $1.oo for a bottle of shampoo/conditioner.

4. I wish there were more strong, positive female role models in the world to guide the girls growing up in today’s society. It makes me terribly sad that people look up to Snooki, the Kardashians, and Lindsey Lohan (She’s still around, right?). I want them to know that in the grand scheme of life, it doesn’t matter what colour your hair is, how white your teeth are, or what clothes you are wearing. You don’t need a boyfriend to be happy. You don’t need to put out to be loved. It even doesn’t matter how many facebook friends you have or how many people follow you on twitter or instagram. Spend your time doing things that do matter: helping others, education, and doing things that make you passionate about life.

5. I would like to train for a half marathon, and be ready to run one by this coming summer.

6. I may or may not have impulse purchased 22 new bottles of nail polish less than a week ago. I can hardly contain my excitement for when my packages arrive in the mail! (I have mentioned in the past that I kind of have an addiction. Do they have rehab for this sort of thing? It doesn’t really matter, because I wouldn’t want to go.)

7. Finally! I have been listening to heart sounds on my computer while I study to try learn them for the cardiology portion of my class. I’ve been listening to 10 second clips repeat themselves over and over and over again for around 8 hours a day.

Jeez, that got long! And now back to studying. Cardiovascular infectious disease day. Can’t wait.

Temptations

Deep down, somewhere in the depths of your brain or chest or whatchyamacallit, you can hear it. “PULL ME,” says the fire alarm. “It will be glorious. Bells and sirens. The chance at ogling sexy firemen. I bet you won’t even get caught.”

And then I see this in the hallways of my school not too long ago. Oh the temptation. I don’t see how anyone could resist. Deep breaths, deep breaths, keep walking…

It was for sure a very close crisis. Averted.

Cheers to the Freakin’ Weekend

Happy weekend, y’all! Here’s a glimpse into my weekend in case you were curious. I think the appropriate reaction would be jealousy…

But in a positive note, I got free Papa John’s pizza, a 2 litre coke, Bath & Bodyworks lotion, and Chapstick yesterday! I am exaggerating, I paid $0.08 for all of that. Plus I got a new set of colored markers, which greatly helped my diagram below. Perfect.
