:knock knock: can I get my life back?

so, it has been a very stressy and long week. i have been a study hermit.

I have had at least two days where I got back to my house at 2:30 am. and, that always sucks when it was not due to being out with friends.

but, classes are done, and at this time next week, i will be in lovely vancouver. between now and then, i have 3 exams. after those 3 exams, i have 2 papers to finish. so, still lots of work to do, but things are getting picked away at.

tomorrow, i will race a 5km santa shuffle. It is not feeling very christmasy around here. TOday i commuted on my bike, in a skirt. I love riding bikes in dresses, but who would ever think i would be able to do that on the 3rd of december!??! something is not quite right with that.

I have never tapered for a 5km before. but, unintentionally, i have this week. just too much work, that pretty much, i have not exercised for 3.5 days straight. at 1:30 am yesterday, i was also forced to eat vending machine food.

i hate what the end of semesters does to you. but, not going to lie. the work we have done this semester has been rigorous. And, grad studies are meant to be rigorous. they are meant to transform the way you think. and, with exercises like this research methods proposal and presentation, i think it is succeeding in doing that... we are learning, that is for sure.

so, off to studying for a medical-surgery illness management, and research methods finals that will happen on monday! and, on that note, i would like to share with you a facebook event.
