Final Regurgitation Test

5 Jan


Just a few thoughts for today, I’m exhausted. It’s been a very exciting day. Today was the last day of my ‘regurgitation testing’ of all the knowledge I’ve learned in the last few months. It was a great success! And, I’m so happy and ready for a nap! Nothing great for dinner tonight … perhaps some leftovers, or maybe grilled cheese … and that’s only if I make it that long! I could be asleep by 8pm!


Hope you all had a lovely day. Thanks for all the recent ‘reads’ … my blog stats are growing each day! Thanks to you! Night Ya’ll

Christmas, can you wait a week?!

23 Dec


Don’t get me wrong, I am really looking forward Christmas. I’ve said it a hundred times, I can’t wait to get home to see my family… but I have so much to do between now and then. I’m starting to feel like that lady at the circus who balances plates on her head. I’ve always said that when I get stressed out like this, I can’t seem to pick one plate to take down and tackle for fear that the whole lot of them will come crashing down on my head. Thats how I feel right now. Too much to do, and not enough time to do it. Unfortunately, this may mean Christmas will come a week late for me. But … if I remind myself, Christmas isn’t about the actual DAY (religiously, yes – but in terms of celebration with family, no) it’s about celebrating the holiday with loved ones. So, if mine is a week late – it’s a week late.


On a brighter note, it’s amazing how much I enjoyed a simple sandwich today. You know, like a brown-bag sandwich. White sandwich bread, mayo, turkey, cheese and lettuce. So simple, yet so good when you haven’t had one in a long time. Paired with the Oatmeal Raisin cookies I baked the other day… and I was a happy camper.

And, no … I did not eat ALL these cookies {tempting though}


Well, nothing else highly entertaining to talk about. While all of you are out picking up last-minute presents, wrapping, baking, and singing Christmas songs by the fire … I’ll be sitting here, staring at the computer, expanding my brain and hoping it all comes to an end in time to spend some quality time with my family.

Whew. I need a mental break. I’m embarking on a new journey that is taxing my mind at the moment, and clearing it via this blog is certainly helping my sanity. Can’t say that anything too domestic or creative happened today – just a whole lotta time spent expanding my knowledge base, thus giving me an annoying dull headache.  I wonder how doctors and lawyers keep all that information in their brain without it mixing up all the definitions and examples … certainly not my calling in life. I’m such a visual learner that I literally sit and write down everything I want/need to learn, draw bubbles around important facts,  use different color pens and highlighters to draw attention, draw arrows and bullet points .. anything to help jog my memory when its time to regurgitate the info. And, after all that has been done. I sometimes use notecards, and type up study indexes in Word. When it’s time to recall the information, I can literally see the colors, patterns, and pages where the information was written & it helps me. So… needless to say. My brain is tired. And THIS is the food I think about when I’m tired… night ya’ll!
