I think I’ve been doing more ranting than thinking here recently, but that is what happens with finals looming imminently on the horizon. Today, as some of you may have noticed, is Monday. Monday, in my opinion, should be an excused absence from school. This one started off OK for me until my contact lens decided to freak out at breakfast. I went back upstairs and proceeded to pull it out of my eye in halves. Cool. Especially since that was my last pair. That means glasses. I haven’t worn my glasses out in public in a good number of years.
Off to gross anatomy lab for lab cleanup. We had our last block exam last Friday so that means we are done with the lab section at least. So without trying to sound callous, and wierd, and like a serial-killer-in-training, we cut the cadavers into smaller pieces, bagged and boxed up the remains to be cremated and given back to family members. Odd as this sounds, I think I might miss gross anatomy lab. I’ll just reiterate here that it was a huge gift that we were able to have the chance to work on the human body. It gives us a whole new level of understanding that models and pictures would never be able to give us.
Back to ranting.
After leaving lab, I was carrying my water bottle that has taken upon itself to start leaking over anything and everything. It got put on top of the car while I fished out my keys. It was promptly forgotten. I was promptly given a heart attack when it bounced off the back of my car as I pulled out of the parking lot. I didn’t much feel like darting back among other cars trying to leave to rescue this dysfunctional water bottle so I left it as an offering to the parking lot gods.
Some well meaning individuals have gotten it through their heads to redo the parking lot at my apartment complex. I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason for all this construction (like improvement of facilities. Geez! Who do they think they are?) but do they have to use the earthquake machine from Arrow? It’s excessive. Also, to the water truck dude who insists on parking his truck off to the side but really in the middle of the entrance (and also right in front of my door)- THERE”S A WHOLE PARKING LOT FOR YOUR TRUCK!!!! I’m complaining mostly because it is in the way of the whole world, and partly because it makes it hard to get in and out of my “spot”.
Finals start on Wednesday and I have a profound lack of motivation to study. My weekend was mostly taken up with my oldest sister’s wedding. I’m not complaining about that. It was nice to see family, but not so nice for trying to get some studying in. Also, since I never got around to getting a pedicure, I did my own nails. I’ll have you know that painting my toe nails might have been the hardest thing I’ve done in my life. (I might have been classified once or twice as a tom boy growing up and I haven’t really changed much, except I do know what makeup is.)
In conclusion, there are a few good things that have come out of today. One- the new Hobbit trailer is out. Come on December!!! Two- I got another box of goldfish to munch on. Seriously, if sarcasm and goldfish eating were Olympic sports, I would medal. Three- four more days, three more tests, and this summer semester is over! Let the countdown commence!
