the madness of finals

Wow, this is my 50th post on this blog. I should throw a party...

So it's Tuesday and I have my Neurobiology final tomorrow and I'm slightly terrified, but not terrified enough. It's my senioritis acting up again and I'm finding very little motivation to study the way I should be for this test. It's also snowing out. That has nothing to do with my motivation (or lack of) but I thought I'd mention it because it's very pretty. It almost looks fake...

Yesterday I had my Kinship final test, and I actually knew the answer to every question (at least basically). I'm certain I did well on that test, which is bad because it's like rewarding my bad behavior (since I barely studied for that test). I also finished my Wicked painting and it doesn't look as cool as it could, but it also doesnt look too bad either. Definitely one for my wall.

Still have to finish my sculpture by 3:40pm tomorrow, but that should be easy and I'll just finish it up after my Neuro final.

Assuming I'm still breathing after that. Which may in fact be assuming a lot.

I've been going back and watching the old episodes of Heroes. It's really fun! Reminds me where all the characters are coming from - I'm up to Season 2 Episode 4 (I just finished 3 last night). But yea, after my final and finishing my painting I pretty much devoted the rest of Monday to entertaining myself, saving today for studying for Neuro. Of course since we were up very late last night and I only seriously woke up at like 1:30pm (and then showered) I haven't really gotten to studying yet. Which is bad! And instead of studying I've been checking email and posting on my blog.

I am excited for the fact that this time tomorrow I'll be done with Neuro.

I've also been thinking about my future, and my thinking has been leading back to the travelling ideas. I want to go back to Australia, back to the Perth area. I could work for the WA Conservation Council or some other similarly minded organization. Or I could work on getting a Master's or something. As much as I love the snow, and Minnesota, these cold winters really are not my favorite thing in the world. I've also been realizing that it's not just the people I've been missing there, it's the whole cultural attitude, the places, the weather, the proximity to the ocean, it's all of that. I think I'm neglecting to remember the prices of things but still.

I'm so tired. I know I slept the right amount, but I'm still tired. I hate being semi-sort of-sick. I want to sleep...

I'll start dozing off soon if I don't watch myself.

On a further note, Alan has still neglected to send me the pictures! I can't wait to get a camera.

I really have nothing else to write about, I'm just procrastinating because I don't want to study for Neuro. Which is dumb because not studying won't make it go away, it will just make it suck more.

So tomorrow the plan is to take the Neuro final, finish the final sculpture, pack up the car and drive home. Good plan right? I think there was more to that, but I've forgotten what it was.

And I haven't been watching myself... dang it.

Time to get to work

Be careful on your drive home. There are loads of idiots driving like they own the road and sliding all over the place lately.
