Like I promised, here’s one of the tracks of the singles I bought back in Shirokiya~

So. Just finished the first exam block of the new semester. Gonna start pharmacology tomorrow, but I don’t feel like working on anything at 1300 am. So random thoughts for you as I struggle to prep for pharm this late.
1.) Did you know that when you sleep, your cerebrospinal fluid actually flows a lot as you sleep through these tiny microscopic channels that help clean out waste. Compare that to the very little movement when you are awake.
So now you have another excuse to go take a nap. You’re welcome. “MA! I’m NAPPING. Trying to clean my brain from seeing the neighbor naked.”
Don’t believe me?
MIND. BLOWN. http://www.nih.gov/news/health/oct2013/ninds-17.htm
and go Google CSF sleep if you’re interested.
2.) Man, I am so grateful for the people I’ve met in my life. Just listening to a song reminded me of my piano teacher I had a child. I remember playing a piece and not actually following a note in a measure, because I thought it sounded right. I thought he was going to be mad, but he surprised me with something along the lines of, “AH. But why did you play that note? It sounded right didn’t it? Wasn’t what you expected. That’s called playing by ear.”
You betcha I bring up that memory every time I hear a melody that doesn’t go the way I expect. I keep hearing what a melody could have been, but then it doesn’t happen. It’s a lot of fun. He’s probably long gone now, but I’m glad I still remember a part of him.
And because I might as well, this was the song I was listening to:
Been on repeat all day. Yes. Bringing this band back. Needed a pick me up while studying. Exams tomorrow and Friday.
This song isn’t *really* all that upbeat, but this one is just too good not to share. So there. You’re welcome.
A departure from jazz.
A little rock to push you through your week.
Lyrics & Translation Here:
Goodness those lyrics. It’s like Shiina’s bundled up everything I feel about life into three and a half minutes. Do you know how much love I have for this? Do you? Do youuuuu?????

Good news everyone. I passed my histology, anatomy, AND physiology exams for this last exam block. THANK GOODNESS. Much improvement from 1st exam block. My clinical skills exams suffered, but penciling some more time here and there and less time for some other things should fix that. So now I gotta up my game even more.
So for you guys still in school (and not in school), keep at it. You’re all smart and capable individuals.The most you can do is learn from your mistakes. If you can do even that, then I think you can get pretty far. Don’t sweat it if you mess up, think big picture, and then it won’t seem so bad.
So I guess that’s all I wanted to say really. That, and I wanted an excuse to share this track as I wait patiently for the next Romantically Apocalyptic journal update.
Use it as study music, that’s what I’m doing. lol
DJ Okawari - The Bonds Ft. Nanase
Something to sooth the mind after a long day. Listen. Breathe. Relax.
You guys can jam to this while I cram for this exam block.
I have a feeling I am going to fail a bunch of exams once again. But I will get there eventually. So enjoy your weekend!

Hi guys, so I’m in 2nd/3rd week of school now. Anatomy is a killer. So is histology. Oh man. But that is beside the point, I have been getting good vibes all weekend despite feeling like I know nothing and probably knowing not enough. And this is part of the reason why.
A NEW SHIINA RINGO SINGLE CAME OUT IN MAY AND I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT IT???? Well, I am enjoying it now. And that’s all that matters.
That, and it just rained. I go to school in a freaking desert, and I am from Portland. So there. Running in circles in the rain is justified for me. Shut up. I know you’re laughing.
