Third year hasn’t even ended yet, and I’m already planning out my fourth year. Actually, I’ve been planning it out since November. This also means that I need to know what specialty I’ll be applying for come next October. Talk about planning ahead! I find it hard enough planning out one week ahead. Currently, I’m trying to plan an elective somewhere around London for late November/early December of this year – only because there will be an exam I’ll have to write, so doing an elective around that time will (in a way) save me a trip to England. And then I can fly home from England, which will be a shorter flight =) After I plan this out, I’ll only have one more month to worry about – so one more elective.

Two weeks later and I think I may still be jet lagged. My sleep has been completely off lately. I’ll take an afternoon nap after school for 4 hours, and then I can’t sleep again. And once it hits noon at school the next day, I’m just about ready to pass out.
I might attribute my misguided sleep to the test I just had last week as well. I was obviously trying to cram as much as I could once I got back from my winter vacation, so I didn’t mind the lack of sleep and odd sleeping patterns.
It’s just so hard to try to fall back into a normal nighttime routine.
In other news, my apartment heating has gone haywire. While I see my neighbors opening their windows in -10 degree weather, I struggle just to keep it above 20 degrees in my room. The only room in the apartment with actual warmth is the living room – and this is the room no one uses. My roommate’s room is cold. The kitchen is cold. The bathroom is cold. It sucks. I told the building admin about it, and lo and behold – unexpectedly today, she came by with a man to check up on the heaters. I was completely unprepared (ok, well I did just wake up from my nap and I did just brush my teeth, so it wasn’t that bad). But my room was a disaster! I was so embarrassed having them walk into my room. I wanted to die! So obviously once they left, I went on a cleaning spree. All I have left to do tomorrow is a thorough vacuum and potential floor mop, and I’ll be ready for their next visit
And that is it for now. I’ll try posting a Wordless Wednesday post tomorrow – hopefully something eventful will happen.

Hopefully everyone has had an awesome New Years! Mine was nice and quite, just how I wanted it. Good friends, good bubbly, good times. I did pick up a bad Homeland addiction though. I have managed to stop myself at episode 7 in season 1; and hopefully I won’t waste an entire day one day catching up… I don’t have time for more TV shows.
One of my “To Do’s” while I have been home for the holidays was to bring my friend’s laptop into Apple for a battery replacement. She spilled tea all over it and it stopped working back in October. Because she wasn’t going home for Xmas, she asked if I could bring the MacBook into Apple and get them to fix it. “Sure,” I thought, “It shouldn’t be a problem.” Little did I know. OK – so maybe it was my fault for going to Apple on Boxing Day (I did have an excuse – I came home late, late, late on the 23rd of December and the first available appointment was on the 26th). I did find parking surprisingly easily, but my laptop issue wasn’t fixed right away. It needed a battery replacement – and they had no batteries in stock. No problem, they said they would call and book me an appointment when one came in – hence my second appointment on New Years Day. I think the mall was more crowded than it was for Boxing Day. This time, parking was a lot harder to find. But my laptop problem has been fixed
And so begins my attempt to blog more… It’s actually harder than I thought. I mean, I feel like coming up with something to write about isn’t too hard. After all, it is my blog, so if I feel like writing about bumfuck nothing, no one can stop me. But the hard part (for me) is to find the appropriate time to sit down and write. It’s not like my life is super exciting and busy, such that I don’t have a few minutes to spare to type something up… it’s just… I don’t know how to put it into words. I guess it doesn’t fit my schedule; my daily routine. So I’ll have to make it a habit to schedule in some blogging time. Maybe I’ll think of it as a job; and every night, I have a half hour shift that I have to show up for.

For the year of 2013, I will attempt blogging more than normal. Even if I have nothing to say. I’ll find something random to post about. Or I’ll throw up a random pic.
It’s time to revive this site…
With that note: I hope everyone has a happy new year! Party hard, party smart tonight!
