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?

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:
