This time last year I did karaoke for the first time at a Hooters in Wisconsin with some cool Danish chicks… and I realised that it doesn’t matter if you’ve got the worst voice ever, or even a really strong Danish accent. You just sing and dance to the Backstreet Boys anyway.

I miss this lovely place.
Does watching Girl Interrupted count as studying psychiatry?
It’s a good thing that it’s raining outside because I am actually trapped in my room (I don’t have a car for a week) with nothing but lots of snacks, endless amounts of tea, and all of psychiatry, gynaecology, obstetrics, paediatrics and geriatrics to learn.
What should I get my boyfriend’s dad for Christmas??? Halp!
I’ve never bought his parents any presents before, but they bought me a birthday present, a present after coming back from NZ, and apparently they got me a Christmas present too! So much pressure.
His mum should be easy though. I’ll just get her a pretty scarf.
If I have to spend summer indoors studying for stupid exams, I might as well look cute and summery doing it.
Treat yo self! I have no intentions of studying tonight. (at Little Creatures Dining Hall)
I hardly got any sleep last night because it was so hot and because I can’t stop thinking about exams. And now I’ve been up since 6am because I have to get ready for GP land which is probably going to be useless and draining like it is every week, so basically today has already started off as the worst day ever.
- I tutor, which basically means that I get to pick the day & time every week that I go in
- I work at a large concert venue as an usher, and they employ hundreds and hundreds of people, so as long as you give them 24 hours notice about not being able to work they can easily find a replacement (also, they offer you shifts via text message and you can choose to accept or decline them by replying to the text message)
- I do promo, which pays great, and they send you an email every week offering you shifts, and you just reply and say you can work that week, if you feel like it
- I work in retail as well, which was quite demanding on my time at first, but now that I’ve been there a while they only give me the Sunday shifts now, which pays $30/hour, and they also recently let me take off about 3.5 months to study for exams and then travel overseas
If you want advice on how to apply for any of these just let me know :) I also sell clothes that I buy from factory outlets on ebay, which I have posted about before
20 Things We Should Say More Often
Life’s tough, but so are you
I couldn’t stop smiling throughout the whole thing. Everyone needs to watch this!!!
Last night I had a dream that I was sleeping over at my friend’s house on the couch, and the pillow she had given me had EXAM written all over it. And it had little encouraging messages on it like, “yeahhhh you can do it!” and “don’t worry, it won’t be that bad.” I asked her if she got the exam pillows out just for me, and she said yes.
Fuck, I really need a holiday. I can’t wait until my mind can stop being plagued by anxiety-inducing thoughts of exams.
When trouble fills my world you bring me peace
You calm me down, you’re my relief
When walls come crashing down around my feet
You light my way, you’re my release
