The one about my first week back


The first week back at uni is over  (yes, we have most Fridays off – thank God for that!) and I couldn’t be happier.

I always have a hard time with new things energy-wise (I get super tired), and although I’m used to attending lectures, practicals and so on, I still get exhausted whenever I return to the “uni routine”.

This week has been no exception. After Monday’s 3-hour practical at the university farm I was absolutely knackered! After 3 hours! Geez…

I’m really excited for the surgery course (or well, the first part of it 😛 ), as well as the “clinical and laboratory diagnostics of small animals”, which I’m hoping will be similar to the courses we had for production animals and horses. These courses (I imagine) will be very helpful for the practical training and working at the clinic this summer. Fingers crossed!!

Now I’m going to return to my pre-weekend celebration (read: watching Forensic Files), and tomorrow there will be hamburgers!! Hopefully the weekend won’t quite fly by…



The one about a year that passed, and a year that’s just begun

Wow… I have posted nothing since my 22nd birthday way back in August!

Reason being? The same excuse I always make; I’ve been way too busy.
Always sounds pathetic, but it’s true!

What have I been up to, then? Well

  • I went to London (and Norwich ^^) in October
  • Uni… (it’s always uni, isn’t it?)
  • Exams, projects, deadlines, panic…
  • Christmas “break” and New Year’s – family time!!!
  • Some more exam stress and panic
  • Potato (aka le boyfriend) came to Tartu
  • Some more panic over the same bloody exam as earlier
  • Success!! (I got an A on my pharmacology exam today ^^ Woop!)

Oh, also, I’ve been knitting like a crazy person! I’ve lost track of how many pairs of socks I’ve made (must be nearing 10 soon!), 2 cardigans, 2 pairs of mittens, baby mittens, two beanies, a sweater for Tinka the cat, three neck warmers/cowls… You get the point – I’ve turned into a granny!

Let’s take a look at some of the things this year will bring;

  • More stress and panic
  • More knitting
  • Summer internship at a clinic
  • A visit to Norwich again in June, hopefully for at least a week before my internship
    and last but not least
  • I’m going on a cruise in October! How exciting!! 😀

Now I’ll get back to knitting – I’m currently working on the “Midsummer socks” (picture below, design by Niina Laitinen – you can find the pattern right here) Currently about halfway done with the first sock 🙂

Hopefully your year will be full of exciting adventures and new challenges – if you need more challenges you should start knitting 😉


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.



It’s that time of year again…

When you read this I will probably be dead, or dying, surrounded by books, notes, chocolate wrappers, and highlighters.
And perhaps a few pizza boxes, empty of course.

Yes, exam season is at its worst.




7I think I’ll just leave this here.



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.
