Semiannual Blog Post!

I just got home from my 12 hour shift – at school, of course. I tend to get there at 9am and so long as my study group is there, I stay there until 8 or 9 pm. Admittedly, 10-20% of our study time is spent on blue humor and discussion of farts. I can’t […]

So school started…

Posted by

Oh has school ever started. To say that the accelerated program is not a walk in the park is an understatement. It’s definitely more like a walk over hot coals. While people are throwing hot coals at you from secret unseen alcoves. They are very strict in nursing school – presumably because in the real […]

A Little Light Reading/Listening

Posted by

Here they are, all 40lbs of books for my summer semester. It’s a little intimidating, a little exhilarating. I really want to unpackage them and look at them, but at the same time, most of them are unreturnable if opened, and I want the prof to confirm I got the right books. You DO NOT […]

I really thought that when my time of employment ended, I would be a blogging maniac. I thought I would be endlessly analyzing in writing what I am going through right now. I thought I would, and could not wait to, lead my friends in a public dialogue about my shit because I felt like […]

Here is the recipe for turning around a bad day: 1: Have a really good guitar lesson. We spent the entire lesson on Josh Homme’s solo at the end of Little Sister, and I learned that I need to get way more aggressive about bending the strings. While I play it at a snail’s pace […]

Successes & Failures (and SYTYCD behind the cut!)

Posted by

I seem to be getting both in equal measure, but that still means I’m having success. This week I signed myself up for a photography workshop led by Me Ra Koh. I knew as soon as I saw the announcement on her web site that she was coming to DC, that I was going to […]

I finally just pledged some cash to WTMD, our local actually good radio station. For a long time I thought “why even try when I can get exactly what I want, when I want it, now? Why bother when the radio can play ten things I don’t like first? But this past week they have […]

Anti-Climactic much?

I got a letter from the Office of Admissions and Advising at Howard Community College! I think the thin letter/thick letter thing kind of doesn’t count when you are applying to Nursing shool at community college, but I can’t tell you for sure, because I only got a thin letter. It goes something like this: […]

Chemistry Problem

Posted by

Question 25 bested me with semantics: “List all the possible [emphasis mine] subshells of the 5th shell of an atom” with the options I couldn’t decide between being: a) 5s 5p 5d 5f b) 5s 5p 5d 5f 5g So, does possible mean “hypothetical” in this context, or “actually possible”? And Jack pointed out that […]

Back to School – New & Improved

Posted by

After what seemed like a very relaxing eternity, Chem 103 got into gear this week. Finally. I would never have thought this but I am really eager to get this show back on the road. I think… I am clinging to school a little as it makes me feel more like I have purpose. First […]
