SCHHHH everyone! How did a month fly by already? I thought I just last posted here a week ago?!? *headdesk, checks calendar and counts days* I actually had to go back and manually dig up where I left off on the thread. More on school towards the end… I know I've been reading as most of this is familiar, but a simple "SCHHHH" is not enough tonight I fear.
I really want to see/read Hunger Games (and also see Wrath of the Titans). It's on my reading list for my mini-vacation before studying for the boards, or after passing them. Adara
, good kid! Cacaphony
, congrats on a concert well done. I'll be doing the unplugged thing this weekend, and after almost 4 years in a committed long-distance relationship fixed on Skype, it will be nice. Belsum
, I see you've been lurking too lately due to general sense of being busy. CC
I hope your tendons are doing better.
on the passport finally! And the soon to be daughter in law! A day to properly do domestic things on the slow path sounds wonderful right about now. And I just woke up my parents from laughter at envisioning the sight of you and BB cooking and the smell of the shrimp paste.
I never play the lottery either, but saw a promotion from a radio station stating that if you shared their status photo and they won that they'd share the prize winnings with everyone. While I didn't believe it, I did post it just in case it actually did happen (see – a night of successful studying there).
I've lived in Wisco for 30 years now and still have never actually smelled a proper Limburger cheese.
Lumpia, ramen, yakisoba, ham hocks and beans, curry, fried okra, pansit, collard greens… OK, now I'm hungry.
That all sounds incredibly good right now. Med knows all those southern recipes, and I used to live behind an Oriental Grocer in college and miss it dearly. I miss their kimchi, ramen, and flute cookies that I would get there. It was also the best and cheapest place in town to get seafood.
I could have sworn it said, "Large tomatoes hit Dallas-Ft Worth". Which I'm thinking might have been a better option.
And I read that as "Large comatose
hits Dallas." I blame nursing school.
x, my dear boy!
They'd take him out in a New York minute. And I'd send them roses for it.
Now add in Jack and Martha... then leave them near the latest version of The Master.
This needs to be made into fanfic! Stat! This will relieve my stress…
]School has been even more insane than I actually thought it would be the last month. 17 days until graduation – but 5 tests, 2 lectures, and 5 round-trip commutes until then. I'm ready, and I'm actually not nervous about it – what will happen will happen, and while I hope I get a really good job coming out, after taking a little time off, I also can accept a bad or no job. The only thing I'm worried about right now is that I'm getting a C in my peds class, and need to maintain a C to graduate, but have not really passed any exam in there from that professor (which was the same trend when I had the same prof for nutrition class two years ago). I've gotten really good grades in the other classes, but have not come close with this professor at all. It's sad, I'm not worried about the big national standardized test to get the license, I'm just worried about two small exams to get the class finished.
Then to add to all the stress… Med… (I love him dearly and I still consider him my best friend but there are plenty of times, especially lately, that just his name stresses me out). He's had a roller coaster last few months. Long story short, he took in a woman to care for who turned out to be his mother's twin sister… and who happened to have given birth to him. During these last few months of taking care of her, he lost most of the contracts for his business as well, had his main business server's power supply die, and is now left with no income. It's been up and down for him for getting interviews and job offers – he had to turn down a lucrative one in California because of no money and probate on his dad's ex's will. Tonight, a rogue lightning bolt completely fried what was left of the functional computer equipment, taking out any data saved on the hard drive from his 20+ years in business – the backup is on the non-functioning server. Thankfully this gives me a chance/excuse to pull offline from all that stuff this weekend. He has the computer of a friend in his office being built right now, just needed a hard-drive in it to make it functional; the friend, whom I was talking with when this all happened, told me that Med can borrow the computer until he can get a new rig running.
Needless to say, prayers/meditations/thoughts are being requested for Med's wellbeing and both of us getting work very soon. I'm taking his weekend offline as a blessing in disguise to be able to relax a bit finally and just hunker down and study. Or read message boards. *winks and hides face in her Peds textbook, pretending to work* Hey, maybe osmosis can happen with knowledge too. ETA: Yes I realize that Calibri is my default font...
