The Beauty of the Mind.

Well with my neuroscience course just around the bend.. and add that to my love of the arts.. this is a perfect union in my opinion.

Check it.

Boy (Man) Crazy.

[The Sartorialist]  A man in a suit. on a bike?  Please.

[Green Wedding Shoes]  Suspenders? Yum.

And Kid Cudi.  All kinds of swagger from this one. 

Ok fine.  So maybe inately I'm a little boy crazy.  I'm focusing on my studies for real y'all, but a little eye candy couldn't hurt right?

Currently reading.

I haven't read for leisure in so long.. very excited about this!

Love love.

I love love.  I wear my heart on my sleeve. and that's ok with me.  Maybe it get's a little emotional, but I guess I'd rather feel something at some point, than nothing ever.  Or something.

It does, however, appear to be something among the guys in my class (at least those that I have been mini-crushing on.. which, btw. poor idea) that they've never been in relationships, and don't want one.  To me, not ever being in a relationship and you're post-grad is a red flag for me.  A huge one.  I get that people are commitment-phobic, or whatever.. but never having a relationship?  Very curious.  And sad.

Well. I've been in love. twice.  and yeah, there are times where it's massively hard, but when it's good, it's amazing.  You can't describe how just. great. it is.  And of course, I've had some massively terrible dates, and guys I've dated, but my last relationship with JP keeps me optimistic I guess.  Even though generally guys can be (and usually are, sorry y'all) extremely selfish and overall dummies, they aren't all jerks.  Maybe if I didn't have such a nice and good guy as my last bf, I wouldn't keep wearing my heart on my sleeve in hopes for that again... but who even knows.

And really, idk what I'm doing as a single girl.  I'm quite terrible at it, but I'm learning to enjoy myself more and more throughout this process.  After this break, I'm getting back into my hobbies that I want to make time for (which is hindered by being slightly boy-crazy as of late).  So back to running with Coops more, pilates, painting, music, fostering my new friendships in NOLA etc.  Also, keeping my guy friends just as guy friends.  That should be somewhere on the list.. a challenge for me for sure haha.

I also just adore these pictures.. and one day. I'll have it again.  [Image credits are on my tumblr where they were originally reblogged.]

It's 10:30 am.

And currently, I'm watching the newest episode of Dexter (this season is crazyyy y'all!), poured a glass of wine, and eating leftover pizza.

Which can mean only one thing.  ANATOMY IS OFFICIALLY OVER!!

Done. done.  I won't be looking at anatomy again until I start studying for the boards.  It feels. amazing.

Cannot wait to go home.

Cheers, y'all!

Thanksgiving dreams.

Y'all.  Anatomy is almost over.  We have our (cumulative) shelf exam on Tuesday... and then it's all over.  Genetic exam was on Thurs, marathon anatomy exam today.  Holy. mackeral.

And all I can think about is the upcoming holidays.  I miss my fam so much!  I also miss my hobbies, free time, my dog (he's being boarded for exam week/Thanksgiving), my friends from home.  All of it.

But I'm also doing exactly what I want to be doing.  It is so utterly exciting and amazing. and hard. and overwhelming. and the best.  sappy, whatevs.

So hello, Friday night.  Usually in NOLA they're mixed with some sort of bananas happy hours to more drinks, to shenanigans throughout the town.  Tonight?  Wine. and more wine. and Dexter.  and what's that?  More wine. Hello.  Divine.  There's something very calming about having a quiet solo night every now and then.  No studying (although I'm probably going to sleepily read over some high yield ish in bed later).  No boys (as I've found out, they tend to be trouble.. or something. ha.). Phone's off. Heat's on.  And I'm pretty happy, y'all.

This is what I'm dreaming of..

Dried Cranberry and Cocoa Cinnamon Rolls
 [Chocolate and Tea]

Apple Cider Cups
[Gimme Some Oven]

Hot toddies. and breakfast foods.  among many other things.

Happy Halloween Loves!

All these days seem to blur together.  Especially when we have one exam after another.  Thankfully, our last Molecular Biochem exam was on Friday (and I passed the class, y'all! heyohh -- not that I was worried, but it did kick my ass to study for).. and then Halloween was immediately after.  So it was just perfect timing for a fun, ridiculous weekend.

So. Pics in a nutshell.

Night One.  T1 Block Party.  I was Big Bird, obv.

Night Two.  Dancing on Frenchman/Bourbon.  I was the Water Planeteer.
