Today was spent desperately trying to absorb all the knowledge needed to pass tomorrow’s (absolutely terrible) exam on diseases of poultry. Needless to say, these are not the things I’m very excited to learn about, so finding the motivation to study when it’s full-on summer outside has been even more challenging than usual.
Well, today Juulia and I went out on the nearby dock to study… without sunblock! BIG mistake. We emerged from our study bubble (6 hours later) looking like freshly boiled lobsters! I’ve since spent nearly an hour and a half soaking in a cool-ish bath (spiced up with coconut oil and epsom salts), slabbed some hydrocortisone all over myself (the benefits of living with a person suffering from atopic dermatitis 😉 ) knowing fully well it’s not the best thing to do (#pharmacology), and forced a good litre and a half of water into my system… I really hope I’ll emerge from my bed looking less like a lobster and more like a healthy human being tomorrow morning…
Let this be a warning to my course mates who have to lay eyes on me tomorrow – please don’t comment on my appearance, and to everyone else – please use sunblock, especially if you’re a pale Nordic person like myself.
On a much more positive note (pun intended) Finland is through to the ESC finals!!! (as is Estonia 🙂 )
