Cheap chicken at Boston Market:

Bring this coupon and you can get 3 pieces of dark or a quarter of white with mashed potatoes and cornbread for a dollar. Which is a blessing for me because I do not have time to cook this week.



Just stopping in to post because I realize I’ve been MIA.

This week is midterms and I am working hard. Very hard.

Lol… I’m all about positive affirmations now (click on it!) so you won’t hear me say anything else than that.

My birthday is this Thursday…. (also the day of my Pharm midterm and the day before my Micro midterm and 4 days before my Pathology midterm) and I’m turning 22! Deuce-Deuce, Baby! I’m so crunked!


I don’t really have anything planned.

Kinda hard to plan for a birthday when you’ve got 80+ drugs to memorize, along with a whole bunch of microscopic critters, and ummm…. random Pathology details.

But my boyfriend has been teasing me about the gift he got me for weeks now…. I’m really curious to see what it is, so that’s something to look forward to. I know its something that can be bought on Amazon, but thats all I could figure out. Despite all my snooping.

But yeah, nothing else really happening. I’m just studying my life away.


Monday after the Path midterm will be AWESOME. I. CANNOT. WAIT.


The pace has really picked up! Like wow! 

I really like the stuff I’m learning now though. Its very interesting, and I think I have an aptitude for it, because I’m picking it up quick! Mid-terms are coming up in just a few weeks so we’ll see how I do. I’m currently taking  Pharmacology, Microbiology, Immunology, Pathology, and this semi-random Psychology type course. Its fun. 

I decided this year that the lion’s share of my efforts are going to go towards my academic work, because I would really like to shine. There’s a service activity that is supposed to happen tomorrow at a local high school, but I’m gonna have to bow out… even though I LOVE going out there. 

I have to really try and buckle down and get up to speed… especially in Pharm. That class has me so confused! I still haven’t figured out exactly HOW to study for it unfortunately. Hopefully, I’ll get that together this weekend. 

Either way…. I’m gonna dip out. 

We’re having an SNMA social/birthday celebration for one of our classmates tonight (in about an hour actually), and I’m not even close to getting ready. 


Best wishes.
