Red Bull gives you the runs

NOTE TO SELF: Do not drink an entire can of Red Bull before an exam, lest you want to make the exam proctor raise her eyebrow when you have to sign the bathroom check-out list for the third time within a two-and-a-half hour time span (come to think of it, I am now a little worried that people may think I was cheating...).

I don't ever drink energy drinks (and I drink coffee about once every two weeks or so), but I thought in light of the early-morning exam time and the need for a little pick-me-up, I opted for a lone Sugar-Free Red Bull that's been sitting in my fridge for months. I normally drink tea to get me going, but I didn't think it would provide the jolt that I needed. Aaaand I got my jolt alright. The pain in my stomach made me jolt out of my seat a lot more than I wanted to during such a crucial exam. Oh well.

Despite the shitty (HA!) circumstances, I think I did pretty well on my Con Law final today. YEAH!

PS: I'll try to promise that this will be last gross-post. =)

Dreaming of a white Tuesday

I've been doing my best to enjoy the Thanksgiving break despite my pesky, upcoming exams...but, I have failed. I have regular nightmares about my finals and I spend all day cooped up and studying. I have managed to squeeze in a movie and a tv show or two, but that's about it. The weather in Atlanta has gotten cool and rainy and all I want to do is sleep, Rip Van Winkle-style.

The weather forecast says it will snow tomorrow. Here's hoping that it'll be ATL Snowpocalypse part Deux and I'll get an extra day to study before my first exam. Either way, wish me luck.

Oh, and the movie I recently watched was Never Let Me Go. It's good but sad, I recommend it. It's like The Island but not super-stupid, albeit less exciting.

Oh hello

Of course, after an extended hiatus, I WOULD start up this beast again right when finals are around the corner. Of course.

But, if you (whoever that may be) were expecting drawn-out posts, I am sorry to disappoint--I'll just be posting random tidbits per usual.

So, here's a quick list of what has been going on with me since I last checked in:
  • San Fran with Jacks
  • Chicago with Jacks
  • Max turned 23
  • Jacks moves into new apartment (jealous)
  • Jacks turned 23
  • Jacks started Med School (so proud)
  • I start my second year of law school
  • Max starts working full-time at mega-PR firm
  • Friends got married
  • Firefly 5k with Max
  • Pumpkin patch road trip with Rebecca
  • Halloweekend: I was a jack-o-lantern, a smashed pinata, a Mexican (not very PC) and Steve Jobs (too soon?)
  • I turned 25
  • Max moves into new apartment (jealous)
  • Attended my first Falcons game, had AWESOME seats (jealous?)
And there you have it. I'm sure there was more, but I have finals to study for. Duh.

Wow, looking at this list, I'd say that Max and my sister are having a pretty amazing year so far. I'm so proud and excited for them!
