This is basically an I-need-an-excuse-not-to-study post.
My radiology class is not going well. I'm not failing or anything but it has a tendency to be extremely boring (especially when it comes to studying for tests and quizzes) and the teacher is a very harsh grader. Nit-picky to the max, I'm telling you. It's so incredibly annoying. Taking the actual radiographs and developing the film in the darkroom is kind of fun, on the bright side. I got to bring my cat in for a thoracic radiograph last week because my veterinarian seems to think he's developed a heart murmur. We got a good shot of his heart and the veterinarian/program director at my school is going to take a look at it next time I have class and check for abnormalities. That's one major advantage of studying veterinary technology- free diagnostic testing!
somewhat boring news, I'm growing my hair out. I don't even know why. For years I would start to go nuts if it grew very far past my shoulders. It's already starting to bug me now, but I'm thinking that with some new layering (isn't there a such thing as long hair layers?) I'll feel comfortable leaving it down more often. I'm growing my nails out too, or attempting to at least. I've been a nail-biter all my life, but I figure since I won a free spa day (manicure, massage, facial, etc.) I might as well make it worth it and give them something to work with.
As far as life in general goes, I still have no days off and absolutely no social life outside of work and school. I'm glad I get along well with my classmates and my coworkers because they're my only friends right now. Being the Percy Jackson nerd that I am (always and forever) I'm still very involved with the role play I created on Facebook. I play with some fabulous people who make it a ton of fun. One of the characters I play is Katie Gardner. She and Connor Stoll have just begun an unlikely relationship and its totally sarcastic and adorable. So I guess that even though I'm too busy/stressed to go out and meet people and have fun, at least I get to pretend to be someone who does? That's my therapy.
Speaking of PJO, I still have yet to see Perks of Being a Wallflower, featuring my man Logan Lerman. For some reason it was only playing in major cities in Ohio, like Columbus and Cleveland, and both places are an hour or more away. It's at the top of my list of upcoming cool stuff being released though. Here is the list as follows (don't judge):
Perks of Being a Wallflower DVD - January 23
Breaking Dawn 2 DVD (I haven't seen it yet) - March 2
Rise of the Guardians DVD - March 15
Clockwork Princess - March 19
The Host - March 29
I wish Catching Fire was coming out in March like The Hunger Games did last yer, but alas, I have to wait several more months before that appears.
And I think I've rambled quite long enough. I don't feel like going back to studying after this entry is posted, so I'll probably go downstairs, make myself a cup of tea and watch Disney Channel with my mom for the rest of the night. Yay, my exciting life.
