Day 27: Study day

Today’s inane images of the day:

A couple of things to note: 1.) large stack of notecards only represents a small fraction of the lectures I should know by now; 2.) I really like studying in my kitchen, which leads to the issue of stress eating and consumption of foods I would normally have the will to say “no” to; 3.) What’s open on my laptop: lecture and Facebook.

Yesterday’s caffeinated beverages ingested: 1 solo espresso, 1 tall iced coffee, 2 Irish breakfast teas, 1/2 Red Bull

I am so behind. And frightened. And quite depressed that the clouds won’t cease their downpour on this area. It’s as if Mother Nature sensed that we were stressed and decided to make the weather reflect our mood [I’m going with this theory because it’s supposed to be sunny and beautiful on Monday when our exam is over].

    You can dooo it! Pretty soon it will be all over.

    Stop over-caffeinating! It can have the opposite of the desired effect.

    I have heard that if you get your caffeine levels down in the normal case, you can then harness the power of caffeine in bursts for exams. However, I have not been able to ever successfully reduce my caffeine intake to a low enough level for it to work, and so I just gave up even trying.

    You can do it Amanda! I’m a fellow first year at MSU-CHM. I’ve been following your blog since the beginning. I’m so impressed with the effort you put into both your blog and other aspects of your life.

    Remember, at this point all you can do is your best. Your best may not be perfect and that is ok. Keep pushing through the material and remember that it will be worth it (I think…. haha)!

    @CodeBlu: Thanks for the encouragement!

    @Kyle: Yeah I’ve experienced the same problem… but I’m determined to keep my caffeine-addiction at a reasonable level!

    @Christine: Thanks! It’s good to hear encouragement from a fellow M1 — I’m sure it’ll be worth it. =)
