The Best Day Ever???

I know I promised a cookie recipe today, but sadly my brother's camera is MIA, lost somewhere in the labyrinth that is his room. I really haven't talked about my brother much, despite him being probably the most awesome brother in the whole wide world!!! Here is a picture of him:

Haha, just kidding! Actually he looks like this:

Anyways, there are so many action figures, comics, posters, videos, manga volumes, video games, and artistic equipments that there is no longer even room for a bed. Instead he now sleeps in our guest room with two of our cats.
But I digress, yesterday was absolutely great! I made cookies and peanut butter cups. I also spent a large portion of the day on the couch in front of the fire doing this:

So yeah! Basically I did nothing but read, sleep, bake, and watch parts of two movies. The rest of the time my faithful brother did all of the hard work, and never complained once about it. What a great sibling!!! It was probably one of the best days of my life. I hope to repeat it again before I return to school, but I may have to wait until I go back to my apartment, as the next few days will be rife with Christmas activities!

I hope everyone has a great holiday! I may post something tomorrow, or I may not. It all depends on the great organizational matriarchs of this small family, and that does not include me! :)

Fun Pictures

This is a picture my friend Elizabeth asked me to draw. The first is when her team, the Nebraska Huskers, win. The second is when they lose, or when she hates vet school. It's called the Squinchy Face.

This is Shawnee, my friend Adrian's dog. She is probably the best dog in the world. She is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever that came from the shelter. She loves balls and her bowl. She carries bowl around with her all the time. She likes to bring people shoes when they come home, and she likes to eat ice, apples, carrots, and french fries when she gets the chance. She has many expressions, so you can always tell if she is concerned, happy, or bored.

This is me during finals week. 'Nuff said. :)

I Made It!!!

Yay!!! I'm finally done with this horrible semester!!! Our last grade got turned in today, and I managed to pass all of my classes!!! Wheewww. What a relief. Now I can start next semester fresh, and not have to worry about passing. Instead I will just do well! Yay!!!!! As of now I am enjoying a celebratory glass of wine! Deeelicious.

In other news, it is almost Christmas, and my efforts have been thwarted once more. I had ordered some nice K-State fleeces for my family and instead of five, I only got three! Noooo! I may or may not have misunderstood the web site and ordered too few. This is what the sign said:
Hopefully I did not misunderstand, but if I did, I will have to order more, which means a few people will be getting IOUs on Christmas. Boo.

Christmas break will be interesting this year. I have two weeks off before school starts again. In that two weeks I will do the following: go to the dentist, go to the eye doctor, find a new Diabetes doctor in Kansas, celebrate Christmas with my Mom at home, celebrate Christmas with my Dad and Step mom in Chicago, celebrate my birthday with my family at home, celebrate my birthday with my friends at school.....and do a million other things that I have wanted to do all semester but haven't had time for. However, that's good news for you because it means more cookie recipes, more blogging, and more stories of me watching my brother play video games. Oooh! How exciting. In case you're interested he is currently playing Ghost Busters and Bayoneta, both on X-Box. He just got done playing Mortal Kombat vs. DC, which I missed, sadly , due to school. If you are wondering if I play video games the answer is no, unless it's an RPG. Poke'mon and Nintendo were as far as I got, and of course simple Wii games. Any other games I inevitably end up failing at because I'm a button masher. I panic and start mashing every button on the controller, hoping to keep myself alive long enough to win the match. I also stand up and jump around wildly, moving my arms around in a vain attempt to make my character do what I want. Alas, it never works out. I lose and feel stupid for getting so excited.

Anywho.... I miss Max already. I can't wait to see him again! I almost cried when I left the airport. *Sniff* However, he is having loads of fun at home with his family, playing games, cooking, shopping, etc. so I am glad that he got to go home for Christmas.

That about ends my day long ramblings. I am throwing in some pictures I drew for fun, One is Max and I and the other is Christine and Tas. Enjoy! Tomorrow there will be a cookie recipe up. Yay!!!

Happy Post!!!

Three finals down, Three more to go!!! The hardest two are coming up, surgery tomorrow and then Food Animal on Wednesday. Eeeep! So short post, nothing exciting! By the way thanks to all the international folks that have been visiting! It's super exciting to see so many different countries have visited!!! Maybe soon I can post pictures from my previous trips abroad! If you have time you should head over to my friend Christine's blog, Merp, as it is very entertaining, and has fewer depressing posts!!! Anyways, have a great day everyone!!! I'm off to study surgery!!! Sixty lectures in ten hours sound feasible? Yeah, I thought not. Oooh! look an aardvark!!!! Yay!!!!!

One Down, Four To Go!

One final is done! Goodbye Toxicology!!! Yay!!! Don't get me wrong, Toxicology is a very important class, and I did enjoy learning about it, but grades really put a wrench in things. The more I worry about grades the less I learn, and I have to worry about grades because in vet school a D means you fail out entirely, so of course my grades are terrible (C's and B's) and I am constantly panicking. It's only after the dust settles from the tests that I actually feel like I can learn something.
So yeah, I feel like school is not a learning experience, just a hoop I have to jump through to start learning. I am pretty sure that the only reason I feel this way is because I get poor grades. I bet if I was getting A's and B's I would be perfectly happy with school. Instead I just look at school as something terrible and impossible, and wish that I could have worked harder or gotten rid of all these emotional issues before getting here. I'm sure in another dimension I am getting all A's. I probably have a job in the vet school, am the president of 3 clubs, and am super hot. People ask me questions that I know the answers to and all the teachers love me. People can tell I am capable of making my own decisions and I feel capable and mature. Sadly that is not how it is in this dimension, and this is the only one I know. I guess I'll just have to make the best of it.
The next Final is Zoo med on Monday (Yay!!!), then surgery (*death*), then Food Animal (*flinch*) lets hope I can make it through all right and not fail out! Anyone who is of the prayerful persuasion please say a prayer for me as I struggle through this last week of the semester. Oh! Also, please keep my good friend Danger in your prayers too! Danger has some Mast Cell Tumors on his ear and is getting surgery this week, so please send good things his way!!!
