I just looked through my facebook Statii (is that a word?) from this week.
Hold the phone.
Stop this car.
Shut the front door.
Negative nancy in the house!
Nov 27th: Now that I've tried it, I can officially say eggnog is nasty
Nov 28th: normal people get songs stuck in their head. I get words stuck in my head. Monoiodotyrosine. Thyroxine. Cholecalciferol. Phytochemicals. Goiterogens. Hepatic Cachexia.
Why is it the hardest to be productive when I have the most to do!?!
Nov 29th: The worst thing about my major, aside from million page lab reports, is flippin research papers! I HATE MEDICAL JOURNALS!
Nov 30th: The way I see it I have 2 options right now. 1) drop out of school. 2) get an IV of caffeine to keep me up all night...again. (the again is for the up all night part, not the caffeine IV part...unfortunately)
Dec 1st: I JUST FINISHED MY ADVANCED HUMAN NUTRITION RESEARCH PAPER!!!!! Take THAT Selenium!!!! A lot of blood, sweat, tears, and screaming went into that.

Kay. Seriously. Finals, you're ruining my life. You're all I can think about. My stati about beautiful rainbows, blissful food, and my husbands perfectous rump have turned into negativeness mostly about esquela.  
Is it just me or is the whole idea of finals just Ludacris.
[I can't see the word Ludacris without thinking of that Move song. Is that even by him?!]
But really. Let's take everything you've learned in the past 3.5 months, make your re-learn everything, and take tests on it ALL within a week. I want to meet whoever came up with that and throw them in a lake of honey. And then watch them try to figure out how they're gonna get all that honey out of their favorite shoes. And their hair. Woah. Would that be a pain or what. Jokes on YOU now finals.

Woah. Clearly, it looks like I need some help. Do you want to guest post for me? I was hoping to have a few people help me out over the next 2 weeks. Whaddya say? Just e-mail me with your topic idea and we'll see if we can work something out. But if you want a spot, hurry! I think it'll just be 4 people or so.

Also! It's December. Did you know Christmas is in December? It is! The 25th in fact! I'm going to give you a gift ALL month long. And actually, let's see if we can reciprocate it! Button swap! Grab my button and send me an e-mail letting me know you did, and I'll add your button. Let's share the love.
[Here should be the part where I tell you my stats and how many page views I get in a month/day/hour but honestly I have no clue. I never check that bidness.]

And for good measure, here's a picture of my hottie husband and I. You know, in case you forgot what we looked like or something.

Chelsea said...

Hey. I love your updates. Because you're a cute little cutie, and when you think you're being negative, everyone else probably just thinks you're being cute.

Anyway. Not like I blog all the time anymore, but I'm trying to get back into dat shizz. I would totally guest post for you. Someday, when you aren't a busy little thang, I want you to do one for me, too! I think that would be so great.

Also. Consider that meningitis' booty kicked.

I am so negative about school right now, too! I took pretty much the entire weekend off from studying, and though I might regret it this week, it felt pretty dang good.
