Music for this week. Hope summer is treatin’ y’all well.

These guys are from Seattle. Rock on Pacific Northwest~

Hello hello.

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.

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

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.

And One - No Words

I finally get to listen to the entire album, and the one track that I manage to have on repeat for the longest time is the track without any words in it. Strange, since I love Steve’s voice. 

Also, hi everyone. How are y’all doin’? I’m sick with pneumonia, but getting better. I know. Pneumonia during the summer? I don’t even. Probably picked it up from a patient while volunteering at the rheum clinic. Terrible timing I know. It’s like I’m playing a cosmic game of “FUCK YOU”, with me being the winner. Wooooo.

Guess what my grandparents got me on their not-so-fun & dreadfully terrible trip to China? Yoga Lin albums like I asked them to! The album on the left came with a DVD, but they understood what I meant this time around! Aaaaah so happy. And yes. Music is always newsworthy. Especially if it is me acquiring it. 
I need to repay my grandparents somehow. Because that trip was NOT easy. And these two together was about 113 yuan, which is about $18.50 or something. Muuuuch cheaper than importing them (hell, I can’t even get a physical CD off Amazon). Holy shit. But still. I need to thank them somehow. 
And they got the album that I wanted to boot! It’s called Fiction, and it’s the one on the right. Here’s a link to a music video of one of the tracks on that album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTzy8NF3BDo 
Enjoy!

I'm nothing special. No really. I actually don't know why people listen to what I say. Though if you truly want to know more about me (Heaven forbid), you can ask me questions I suppose.

Also, if you can't tell, I happen to really like science, food, weird stuff, and learning. Have at it. And stay classy. p:
