I've got my two hardest exams this weekend. One over 6 chapters of Anatomy & Physiology and the other over 9 labs. For some strange reason they decided to make these into two tests and torture us twice instead of getting it all over with at once.
One of my favorite things about lab is that being white in this class is to be in the minority. This may seem like an odd aspect to favor, but I came from a predominately white area of the US. And here there is more often than not every other color than white. It's nice.
This Spotify study playlist is bringing me life these days. It makes me feel like I'm slaving away in a coffee shop - and yet - here I am in my PJ's studying tissue samples on my comfy couch.
One day - Two points of view
I have just slathered my face with one of my favorite charcoal masks so while I wait for my face to harden I thought I would pop on here for a minute. I seriously hope no one is one here for some thought out, properly grammar-tized posts...cuz I gotta be honest. I write all day for work and all evening for school and my caringness level for perfection is just real low. (I have a scavenger hunt for you: count the number of time I use the word just in this post)
I almost forgot that I even had a blog. Since I got back from Colorado life has been full of all sorts of new things. As soon as I landed I pretty much had to hit the ground running to get last minute things together for school - books and stuff for lab and things like that.
When I lived in the country of Sweden as a child my Swedish teacher used to say to us in particularly wet, cold, or snowy days that there was no bad weather - only bad clothes.
10,000ft elevation is NO joke. And even though I was in Denver for the weekend I have still be feeling pretty winded and headachey. I highly recommend buying yourself some squished oxygen - aka those mini tanks of compressed air that you can sip on while you acclimate. It's like $15 a can, but it's honestly helped temper some of the panic I have felt over not being able to breathe well. According to Google Alma, CO is in the highest elevation in the United States that has permanent residents. Yeah. It's that high up there.
Whenever I travel, I try my hardest to meet up with friends as I journey to my final destination. Sometimes this means meeting up with a friend for lunch during a long drive or adding an extended layover to a flight journey. This time around I knew that my final destination would end up at … Continue reading Unsteady Uproot – “Welcome to Colorado!” (Sunday, January 5th)
When I was little one of the first things that my parents ever taught me about safety was to never ever ever get into the vehicle of a stranger. And yet here I am in 2020 looking at my Lyft app as my driver gets closer and closer and closer to my pickup location. I'm standing out on the sidewalk with a backpack on my back, suitcase by my side, and an icy cold kombucha in my hand. It's 8:30am. Let's do this thing.
