"Frostbite and heartsickness, ain't neither of them so bad"

Sale Is a Word I Like
It is imperrative I study this week. And of course that means I spend enormous amounts of time doing anything else. You know course work is boring when I prefer spending time with the god-forsaken character from Doctor Faustus. I am planning on doing in victory dance when the guy dies.


How I became an expert procrastinator:
+ I watched 5 seasons of Gilmore Girls with the intensity of a sugar addict in a candy store
+ Made it my life goal to become an expert pencil-on-nose balancer
+ Watched all videos of Andrew Garfield and Jesse Eisenberg being adorable in their bromance without the b. I really, really loved The Social Network.
+ Do a lot of P90X yoga and balance all the relaxing "ohhhhmss" with even more relaxing swear words. Still can't feel any muscle in my upper body.
+ Shopping. Sales. Be still my beating heart.
+ Imagined the perfect spring holiday in Paris. Fingers crossed for me? I would love to spend my February roaming the streets of Paris and eating macaroons, yup.
+ Read any book by Oliver Sacks I could get my greedy, manicured hands on. Neurosurgery & good writing = ♥
+ Long rambling phonecalls with other procrastinating medical students. Bless our short attention span.

Okay, it's time to burn some neurons with books. Woop-woop?


Lunch dates with The Boy at the office are a good way to escape the mind-numbing boredom of days spent doing gastroenterology rounds.

It was also the last time I got to wear my heels before the blizzard swept over the city. Snow is not fun once Christmas is over.

Wearing: Kotton dress, Zara Men sweater stolen from the boy, Zara belt, Musette booties.

You can't even tell I've been all buddy-buddy with insomnia all week, can you?


At least the sales are still going on. Nothing like spending money on things you don't need to cheer a girl up.

Especially when one buys sandals and soft jackets when it's snowing like it's the end of the world outside.

I am so jealous of all those intriguing looking books! And headphones! And shoes.. but that's obvious...

Bets best best luck with studying, I know it is damn near impossible, but every now and then you learn a think or two.

Looking goooood. I completely agree with the snow comment, once christmas is over it should automatically start getting warmer...not colder. And snowy. UGHHH!
