I wish I was a little bit taller I wish I was a baller… I wish my hair was a little bit longer, y’all

Wow… It’s been a while.  I have been exceedingly busy lately, what with taking 4 classes and holding two jobs.  I’ve scarce had time for anything else.  Right now, I am sitting with a bowl of quinoa, fueling up for a run and I’m on here…. neglecting homework (really bad idea… there are tests today). […]

My Closet Tells Me I Am Not a Grown Up

June 20, 2012


Today is the day that we take off for the conference.  Mah boy will be here at 9am to pick me up.  I didn’t start packing until this morning.  Standing in my closet, looking at my selection of clothes and trying to decide what to wear this week… I realise that my wardrobe is not […]

Tuesday Night Nothings

May 1, 2012


So I pretty much shot myself in the foot this evening.  I’ve some information to study for tomorrow’s quiz in the morning and had myself a pre-dinner booze-drink [didn’t have much to eat earlier today], as well as a….. concurrent(?) dinner drink.  Don’t judge me; my words don’t come so quick (or correct) right now.  […]

My story of test day. It was a whirlwind and a day of drama, anxiety, stress, crying and more crying. ... "A classmate exited the room and was asked how she felt.

I’m Buggin’ Out!!!

I think I done lost it.  Here is where I am right now: (I do love a good “Ren freak-out”) A full day of studying and preparing for another full [test] day.  I broke my brain. I will be playing this song in my head all the way to school tomorrow.  And when I pull […]

Tomorrow is mid-program evaluation and I my bpm has gradually risen over the past week.  A month ago, the test was so far off that I knew it would never come.  Two weeks ago, I watched the students around me freaking out and studying everything front to back and then back to front again.  I […]
