Out of an overwhelming desire to continue my procrastinating, I decided to watch the series finale of Dawson's Creek. I watched Dawson's starting my senior year of high school and past college graduation (the show ended in 2003). As cheesy as it sounds there are a lot of memories attached to the show--mostly reminiscing about all those years I watched it. And right now, it's making me sad. Ridiculous I know. But so much has changed in those 8 years. A lot for the good, but I also feel like I lost a lot too. I miss my guy friends from high school. That quirky group (dave, alex, andy, jake, charlie, the lot of them) are irreplaceable and it saddens me to think that I don't talk to them anymore... Even though I've tried to contact Dave many times. I miss football games and the post-party at my parent's house.... I miss the "rabbit-hole" and apple juice cans and bruegger's bagels and mannequin legs and Aldrige and kiwi chapstick (ok, I realize that's a lot of inside jokes--that I probably won't remember 10 years from now, but they make me smile). I think what it comes down to is I miss the carefree days. Part of growing up I guess.

I woke up this am to my room as hot as a sauna. The temperature control in their apartments is horrible. My room will be boiling while my roommate is fearful her toes may fall off due to hypothermia. But this morning while studying I embraced the heat. I'm eating fresh pineapple, pretending that I'm in hawaii eating breakfast. Naturally this fantasy dissipates when I look outside and see mounds of snow. But for one split second I trick my brain and am happy.

On another note, my friend had her third surgery this week, but seems to be doing a lot better. The rumor is that she may get to go home today. I hope that she does so she can really start to get better.

I just tried to dig my car out, but gave up when my pants got soaking wet. I think I'll take a break, do some studying, and attempt again in a couple of hours.

my roommate must stop coughing or I may get homicidal. Every since we got back from break she's had a dry weak cough. She went to a pulmonologist in the past, but refuses to follow up. For how much the cough annoys me, it has to also annoy her. I'll try to be patient, but with exams coming up that's damn near impossible. grr

What a bizarre week.

Monday I woke up to an e-mail from a guy I went on two dates with back in nov/dec. After that second date, I didn't call him back and figured we both lost interest. That is until I got his email on monday: "I'm not a bitter type of person, but after you completely snubbed me,
I've been hoping that SEATTLE would collapse as they usually do.
BWA HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA" Basically I got a good two days laugh out of that.

Then the week took a turn for the worse. My good friend and classmate got really sick tuesday morning and went to the WMC ER. She had to have two emergency surgeries (the first was unsuccessful). Now she seems to be doing better. She's up in the neuro icu and finally allowed to have some fluids. I think she'll be ok, but it was a scary couple days.

Now, it's time to crack down and get to studying. I've never been such a slacker before. ack. Our exams are in one week. Hopefully I can cram all this info in my head during that time. Wish me all luck :)

Recent hiatus

As per usual life has been hectic. To summarize briefly I spent three wonderful weeks at home in Seattle/Woodinville, returned to school for two days, and then went to Paris for 5 days. I'm now back at school and finding it rather difficult to buckle down on studies. But that's really nothing new.

Highlights from home include Kennedy Brothers twice (although my memory of the second time is a bit hazy--brought on by the mutliple shots I inhaled). I actually got to see Watson that night--first time in seven months. Strange to go from seeing someone multiple times every week to not seeing or talking to someone for so long. Guess that's to be expected though. Had fun as always at Drunk Risk. Didn't win, but I don't think my aging liver could handle it. New Years returned in tradition to Jacob's apartment. Overall it was fun, but I wish that I could have avoided the lengthy discussion I had with Shane. Also it would have been nice to sleep somewhere other than on a wood floor... I worked at Dr. Mathey's office again (where I worked over the summer). It's a nice reminder of why I'm torturing myself in med school right now. Overall I didn't get to see people as much as I would have liked. My transportation was limited, as was my motivation. It was nice having time to decompress.

Last week I went to Paris to visit Rachael and Kelsea. They've been travelling Europe for the past four months, but rented an apartment in Paris for the holidays. We did a lot of shopping, eating and movie watching. And of course a lot of wine drinking. No crazy exciting stories from there, but I had fun :)

Now I'm back at school. Thankfully it's the weekend, even if I just mostly use it to catch up on much needed sleep. I'm tired of feeling groggy all the time. Let's hope I can manage to have a little fun too before things get really crazy with studying.

I decided to play the game what was I doing "X" number of years ago on livejournal. Focused on 2002. It was my last year at the UW and I was taking finals right around this time. I was taking graduate level biochemistry, immunology and some lame ass honors class on the environment. And yet, I went out the weekend before my finals... I was happy because it was the christmas holiday.... I had a crush on a boy (although looking back I don't understand why--seriously he's a complete freak), and crushes can be fun. I was working (which isn't always fun), but that meant I was making money. I realize I was doing most of those things to make it where I am. But damn why does this process have to suck so bad :)
