Well, I’ve been mostly reblogging things sporadically but not saying much on here, in part because life has become so hectic, but everyone’s is so that can’t be much of an excuse, can it? A lovely friend of mine mentioned that we don’t talk as much as we used to, and I realized that I mentioned this same thought to a roommate, but didn’t proceed to call anyone. Why not? I texted said lovely friend, but texts aren’t really the same, and texting instead of calling is something I have personally grown to hate. So I am going to try to do better! Once midterms end this week… but for now I’m here to give a brief synopsis of my week thus far (and I’ll have to catch up on previous goings-on soon).
It is midterms time again, crazily enough. They come around quite frequently here. One today, one Wednesday, and one Thursday for good measure, so swamped is a good word for it. Trying to take some time out to be a chill/happy person though, and one of my roommates said I seem to be doing a good job of this. That, or I am just being a slacker and not studying ;)
That is our fancy Harry-Potter-like library above (they like to boast about that on campus tours, hilarious) where I am currently camped out for the rest of the afternoon! Can’t sneak a picture without getting judgement but I have some friendly company, which is nice. I’m currently reading about serosae for my anatomy class, which is actually quite fascinating but makes the amount of material grad school’s going to dish out somewhat intimidating (my prof teaches grad school classes and laughs when she talks about how we’re learning comparatively little). Yikes.
I actually get to be downtown for two of my three classes this quarter, since one is at the Field Museum(!), so I feel like half-undergrad, half-Idon’tknowwhat. It’s nice to be able to explore the city more though, which I feel I shall still never see all of. A friend and I walked around the lake footpaths when we got out early the other day, and between that and my lakeside runs back in E-town I’ve realized how much I’m going to miss this place.
Speaking of which, I’m
trying to hoping to valiantly striving to run a half marathon in June! Three years after my first attempt (injuries abound) but who’s counting. It’s not an official race, but a few friends and I are planning to run from our home base (campus) to the downtown campus, and that’s about 13.1 miles all told. Increasing mileage has been a bit tricky, especially since I keep falling or walking into things and hurting myself (typical) but we’re going to do it even if there has to be walking involved! One of those things to do before we all split…
This is rambling to the extreme, and I am going to cut myself off to get back to work. But. I’m making it a goal to post on here more often, and to remember to call friends more often too :) no promises on this being a weekly thing, and I know you’re all even busier with your graduation plans, but yes. Lots to tell, and hear, I’m hoping. Love from your crazy resident library rat.
P.S. E if you have tips on how to respond to posts, I still haven’t figured that one out. Unless I catch it in my newsfeed, which is quite clogged with all sorts of random things at the moment! Also, Mindy Project is my new TV goal, but I don’t watch any these days (or go on my computer much) so I’ll have to change both habits first. But I’ve heard it’s tres good, and people obsess over her clothes. Just a bit :)
