let the games begin.

With October just around the corner, it is safe to say that school is back in full swing!  I've already had my first two exams and am looking forward to several weeks more.  I'm more determined than ever to kick butt this semester...with dental school apps coming up and all.  Tonight is my first late-night library visit and so far I've managed to check twitter, research the University of Michigan's running club, and read all the blogs I follow.  The very fact that I'm blogging now says that I'm beginning to stress, as blogging is one of my favorite procrastination tools.  I hope you're all doing least better than me.  What I really hope is that you're not taking 18 credits this semester.  Especially if it's your senior year.  That would just be crazy...

school starts tomorrow.

I've been settled in my new house now for a couple of weeks and finally all unpacked.  School starts tomorrow, so to prepare, my 5 roommates and I threw a housewarming/welcome week party last weekend.  I would definitely say it reach near-rager status as our house was jam-packed and we went thru 2 kegs in the course of a couple of hours.  Good times :)

We also  had our opening season football game this weekend at the BIG HOUSE.  It was 95 degrees and we're seated in a sunny section of the stadium.  I started feeling crampy and nauseas as the game started and ended up leaving shortly after the first quarter.  My roommates that weren't at the game took me to the after hours doctor's office in Ann Arbor and from there I was sent straight to the hospital for an ultrasound and to potentially have my gall bladder removed that day.  Seven hours and several tests later the doctors at the hospital concluded that I, thank God, didn't need surgery.  Now, however, I'm on a strict and very boring diet which prevents me from ever eating late-night and hangover pizza again.  Hmmpf.
