Winter Break Randoms

- I am totally addicted to the show Suits. Anyone else watch? My friend and brother got me hooked. Harvey Specter is such an effing badass. I'm having to pace myself so I don't just plop down and watch episodes back-to-back all day long.

- For the past week or so, I've been sleeping an insane amount—like, 9-10 hours a night. (Well, sometimes that includes an afternoon nap.) I never sleep this much. Usually I'm lucky to get 5-6 hours a night, so it must have something to do with my current cocktail of medications, but I'm certainly not complaining. There's nothing better than waking up after a full night of deep, uninterrupted sleep. Gah, this is making me tired.

- Yesterday I baked banana oatmeal raisin muffins. We had about six rotten bananas lying around and something needed to be done. I haven't tried one of the muffins yet because I'm being wimpy, but my mother assures me they are delicious.


- Can't believe the gauntlet of school/work/doctors is starting up again in less than five days from now. I am going to try really hard to keep things low-stress (as much as possible, that is) for myself this semester, and focus on the bigger picture. I got my first non-A ever in college this past semester, and it was surprisingly liberating. Having a B+ on my transcript suddenly lifted all this pressure of having to maintain the perfect GPA, and now I feel way more relaxed about grades and school in general. This is my last semester as an undergrad, which is mind-blowing in and of itself, but it's also crazy considering how much I've gone through in the past four years. So, the point of all this was, I'm in it to make the most of my last few months at school, enjoy it, and hopefully come out a better person than when I went in.

  1. It's great that you've been able to catch up on rest! Your body must need it, so it's good that you've had a little down-time to recharge. Hope you're able to try a muffin!

    I hope this semester goes well--it's hard to settle into the new routines, but I hope it's as stress-free as possible. And congrats on being liberated from the "must get all A's" mindset, it's really a major accomplishment to break free from that. Sounds like it's been freeing for you! I hope you have a wonderful semester!
