Some people would probably read that title and think, “Exams…restful?! What?!?!?”. Nooo I don’t mean mentally restful, I mean physically restful. After a long weekend of matches last weekend, I was very happy to have Monday off not only to rest my body, but also to work on my French paper (which is now finished- yay!!).
Anywho, the not-so-great news, is that I ate some salmon for dinner Monday night, and really didn’t feel well afterwards. Sadly, Tuesday was the worst day when the food poisoning really hit me. I felt much better Wednesday and Thursday, but could really tell I was in recovery mode when trying to practice. Oh well! As learned the last time I had food poisoning, even if you think you feel fine the day after (or the day after that, even) your body needs to replenish its energy and water stores!
Fortunately, today my appetite is back and finally feel 100%, so I’m hoping things will all be smooth sailing from here on out!
I really must go study, because my exam is in less than 11 hours (a 7:30-10:30 pm final- yuck!!!), but I thought I’d pop in and touch base quickly first. I also have a couple of Friday Favourites I really want to share! Thanks as always to Heather for the link-up 🙂 It’s so much fun to participate in every week!
This game is great, because almost everyone has a weak spot, but you can usually get a decent amount of the answers, so it doesn’t make the game entirely impossible. We are definitely not talking New-York-Times-crossword puzzle-level difficulty here, but even if you do enjoy those word jumbles, I have a feeling you’d get a kick out of this game, too! The categories include Art, Entertainment, Science, History, Geography, and Sports. The way it works is that you answer questions against a friend until you get one wrong, then it’s their turn! So unless you’re a near-genius, your streak has to end, meaning you won’t get stuck playing this game for hours on end.
Anyway, it’s a pretty sweet app, and a lot like Quiz Up, from what I’ve heard from others. Cool!
I swear, I start watching the most random shows sometimes! I’ll hear a ton about a certain show, try it, and then not like it, and then all of a sudden check out something random on Netflix and get obsessed! (Ie. Prison Break and The Mindy Project). Okay, I know those aren’t completely random shows, but most people are discussing 1) current shows (not ones that finished in another style era, or 2) Game of Thrones. Yes, I am surrounded by college students, and Sunday nights during GOT are more or less sacred.
Royal Pains is about a doctor who gets fired from his old job at an ER ward in Manhattan, and winds up in the Hamptons as a “concierge doctor”. Basically, imaging Grey’s Anatomy or House, but without the hospital setting, and without the crazy background love stories…at least, not by episode 3!
Ahh, as much as I would love to keep writing other things I’m loving this week, I’ve really got to study!
My friend took this picture yesterday while we were “studying”. The first joke about this picture is that it was taken around 3pm, right when my concentration was really starting to dwindle, and secondly, does anyone get the caption reference? (Hint: I didn’t…). (Also if the embedded video below isn’t working, click here).
Hope you have a great Friday, and a great weekend!
