"Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin, dance me through the panic untill I'm gathered safely in"

This has been a week to remember. Or rather forget. Can't do both, can I? Anyway, one exam down and I am already so tired that even 12 hours of sleep a night can't seem to help. Thank god for those little things that bring a smile, or else I think my world would not turn so easily.

Because I have been neglecting the blog, here is a recap of what went up, down and all around this week.


Dana came over for coffee. She was enjoying her freedom after having her Anatomy exam the day before.


More anatomy and my favorite kind of desert, baklava. In case you haven't noticed by now, I am a complete stress eater. And exams = stress, so this has been a week with a lot of baklava and popcorn and icecream.


Exam day, 3 hours of sleep, panic attacks, chain smoking, chocolate cookies, then finally free. Fell asleep (finally!!) after watching Yes Man (which I enjoyed a lot) and as many episodes of The Mentalist as could squeeze in.


Woke up (at 11am. Damn, it feels good to say that!) to this:

...and the darkest dark circles:

Mada invited me to coffee and I bolted out that door as fast as I could, leaving a trail of smoke behind me that would make the Road Runner proud!


Waking up late, studying a little (another one of those exams is arriving this Sunday), watching repeats of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and then coffee with Roxana. We finally managed to find a day where our schedules align and it was lovely :)

She is freaking adorable, yes?

Walking home, clearing my head, perfect.


Tomorrow, another exam that is killing my brains. I am lacking the will to study and even the mental capacity to do so after what has already been a one way ride to hell on a train made of books and dead neurons. Thank god I can take it in the summer again in case of failure or I would be, pardon my language, screwed. After tomorrow, I can finally relax for a few days... before I gotta start working on the next exam. Hmm, I am suddenly sensing a pattern in my life.
