So why am I writing a blog post to say that this is not what I was going to write?
yeah... I have no idea.
Minus the fact that I drank 2 cups of high-test coffee today.
Yes, I was physically shaking after the first cup, but I chose to drink a second anyway.
Let's be honest.. who really needs sleep?
In other news...
1. I survived the rest of my second round of midterms!
Scores are in, and I was very pleased with the results. Hallelujah! I might pass my first semester as an optometry student!
2. Practicals were a different story
Today, I took my first (and only) ocular anatomy practical. It did not go near as well. But the prof made up for it with coffee. So I'm still happy
3. Investing is cool
So one of the classes that we take as a first year is called "Careers in Optometry." I'm honestly not sure if we talked about careers once in class, but the professor did share a lot of information with us about finances, business, and reading personalities. As an end of the semester assignment, we were told to find ways to invest $10,000 of imaginary money, monitor it for a month, and report back. After a bit of research, I finished the investing stage of this project tonight, and I'm honestly super excited to see how my choices turn out!
4. Bibibop is stellar.
This evening for dinner, I had the opportunity to try Bibibop (think Korean (maybe?) Chipotle) for the first time. It was amazing, and I will definitely be returning there at some point during the course of the next 3 years.
5. Shepherd's Pie
I love to cook. This much you all (should) know. Last night, as yet another kitchen experiment, I made Shepherd's Pie for the first time. I honestly have no idea what this dish is supposed to taste like... but I'm pretty solidly in love with whatever I made.
6. "No, I don't know what you're talking about"
Do any of you nod when you're following what someone says in conversation? I really don't know if this is a normal response or not, but I pretty consistently nod whenever I'm following what someone else is saying. Unfortunately, people (ie my professors) take this to mean that I have experienced whatever they are talking about... and then ask me about the experience in front of the class. #awkwardmoments
7. Because 7 is a perfect number. And Christmas is awesome.
Hey guys... it's December 1st!!
Which means that it's officially okay to start preparing for Christmas.
*Cue Christmas music*
I'm honestly having a hard time containing my excitement.
'Til the next time!
