My brain has left me for an early holiday…

 

Only one exam left! Yes, I’ve made it this far (don’t know how, but I’ve survived).

Currently my brain seems to be taking an early leave for summer holiday, so I’m left feeling somewhat empty-headed.

Actually, no, I feel like the space that is normally occupied by my little brain has been filled with mucus produced by my body in defense against all of this flipping pollen that’s flying around at the moment. Thanks body, so nice of you to look after me (and make me feel like I have a cold…).

Anyway, only one exam left! Yay!
I’m so done. There is no way my brain can take any more information at this point (which is probably why it decided to leave early). Luckily I’ve already gone over the material once before (we had two tests already, and the last one is sort of a recap of everything – yay… not).

This is pretty much what has been going on in my head for the past few days – thank you information overload! (it has lyrics, please sing along 😛 )

I will try to push through these last few days of torture and then enjoy my well-deserved holiday! I’m sure ice cream and chocolate will be my best friends as I try to survive 🙂 😉 😛

To those who are still struggling: You can do it!
To those lucky bastards who have already successfully escaped to holiday land: Good job, please don’t rub it in 😉
To myself: Soon… very soon.

The one about how hectic everything is atm…

Today we took next year’s tutors for a nice walk out in the beautiful Estonian nature (Taevaskoda matkarada) in an attempt to relieve stress and bring them together as a group (not that I’m worried about that, they seem to have it under control 🙂 ).

Anyway, after our outdoorsy adventure we came back to J&J’s crib (aka our apartment) to chill etc. and (finally getting to the point) we came to the conclusion that there’s so much we would like to talk about on our blogs, but there’s just no time to get it out there. Sad but true, that’s the way it is.

There are so many things I wish I could write about, but there’s never any time for me to just sit down and get the writing done (even now I should be doing one of the following; studying, sleeping, cleaning, washing clothes, walking the dog, eating something proper, or taking a shower). Luckily Sunday is just around the corner… (I hope you read the word luckily in the most sarcastic tone possible!!)

To sum it up: life is good, but hectic, school is so-so, and very hectic. By so-so I mean it’s good, but it’s also really bad.
It’s not really that bad… although it sometimes feels completely overpowering… So much to do, so much to plan, decide and execute… and so little time.

The one about the holiday that passed…

I’m packing my (giant, old, pretty ugly, yet (apart from the broken zipper on one of the outside pockets) functioning) suitcase.

Bottom “shelf” – books, pencil cases.
Middle “shelf” – sweaters, trousers.
Top “shelf” – my new shoes, stethoscope….
Plastic pocket – makeup bag, face wash, lotions, all that jazz.

Additional bag – onesie, some soy based “meat replacer” 😛 , two (empty) binders, my “medicine cabinet” which is actually a metal box filled with socks, underwear, tampons…

I came home with plenty of room in my suitcase, and I’m leaving with an additional bag! What’s taking up all this space?
*sigh* I need to learn how to travel light…

This holiday has been so nice! I met lots of old friends after way too long a time, I took time away from school (which might have been a mistake, but it was worth it!), I cleaned my room (!!!), I read a book (not related to school), I properly cleaned the froggy housing, I watched way too much Netflix, I went to the movies with Axe, enjoyed the sauna more times in a week than I have in the past year (2016 😉 ), got two teeth pulled out, got my first ever stitches, drank way too much glög and tea, I had a great time!

I’m also excited for what new experiences spring term will bring (yes, I still have some obstacles to cross before I get there, but I will get there 🙂 ). I’m expecting some draining, awful, and generally uncomfortable courses (both good and bad 😉 ), but also a lot of new ideas, connections and “ahaa!” moments.
Soon, way too soon, it is back to the hustle and bustle of uni, yet I’m more exited than anything 🙂 Guess it’s a sign you’re doing the right thing?

My year of self love has had the most wonderful start, and I have my beautiful family and friends to thank most of all ❤
