Summer is Over

Class starts back up again today. I’ve had a hard time getting back into the swing of studying; especially because this has been my view for the past couple of days.
Ft. Lauderdale
The fact that our first test is in 3 days is starting to freak me out.  This week we will be covering 3 chapters regarding cellular pathology, inflammation, and tissue renewal and repair.

Also I want to share with you a secret on how I got through the first semester: Coffee

Before starting grad school I was never into drinking coffee. Sure I would get a Frappuccino from Starbucks on a few occasions, but the idea of a regular cup of hot coffee disgusted me.  After the second week of grad school I realized I needed something extra to wake me up for early morning conferences and study sessions.  At the time my roommate's shiny new Keurig seemed like heaven! At the end of the first semester I decided that I wanted to stop drinking coffee. I didn’t like the feeling that my body was addicted to a substance (yes I’m aware I'm talking about caffeine and not an illegal drug).  So after I finished my last K-cup I went cold turkey.  This first week back at school will be the ultimate test to see if I can survive without it!

I’ll be back after this week to give you my first impression of the summer class and to let you know if I caved and started drinking coffee again.


  1. Sing it with me now!

    C-o-f-f-e-e, coffee is not for me,
    It's a drink some people wake up with,
    That it makes them nervous is no myth,
    Slaves to a coffee cup, they can't give coffee up.

    Now a round, with the girls starting!

    1. HAHA very clever dad..where did you learn that one??
