crystal meth tweakers

I love mexican food and movies! Friday I had a yummy spinich quesadilla and swirl at La Luna and then off to henry hudson's for an LIT and then I saw the hangover again! I just love that movie so much! It reminds me of all the amazing nights with friends from OU (and luckily I remember them all!)!!

Yesterday I rented Slumdog Millionaire and Confessions of a Shopaholic and ate my leftover La Luna and painted and it was amazing! I love painting and being crafty; I'm not very good at sponging regular trees or palm trees or ocean waves or flowers but I still have fun doing it =).

This summer is going by so fast but so slow at the same time! I love living in a new place and getting to know a new city, but I miss my dogs and the garden and my big amazing bed.

Tomorrow is a clinic day; I love seeing the kids, but I hate how long the day is. She starts seeing patients at 8 and then is usually done around 6 or 630. Ok so its really isnt that long of a day, but I spend 4 days a week in the lab where I get there at 10 and leave around 3 or 4, sometimes as early as 2! I still dont know how she stays so late though. They dont book any patients after 4pm! She just get so rediculously behind with the patients. I mean like hours behind. I've never waited an hour and a half for a physician before, I'd be pretty pissed. But she is an amazing doctor and everyone just loves her so I guess thats how she gets away with it?

waiting and waiting and waiting

I feel like all I ever do it wait. A lot of my summer project is tests that involve a lot of "incubations". I put samples into little trays and then wait a while for the sample to stick, then wash it out and put in more chemicals and wait and repeat. It was kind of fun at first, because it gave me a lot of time to read blogs and shop on the computer, but I am so over it. I probably should be analyzing my data but I dont want to. My abstract is due in two weeks and I just dont feel motivated to start it yet. Whatev. I'm sure it will all work out.
What I really wish I could be doing is reading these amazing new books I found! I was searching for "twilight for adult" books and kept hearing about the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. They are so good! They are romance novels which make them even better! Ha! I could care less that they guys are vampires, I just love that they are big and tall and do they're own thing and aren't yes-men! I am so sick of push-over guys! I am ready for guys who like to be the boss!

carlos the baby

I saw The Hangover this weekend. It was amazing. My new favorite movie. I seriously laughed the entire movie. I was a little buzzed to start out with, but I'm sure I would have been laughing regardless. My favorite part was definately the photos of the night at the end.
Welp, time to go home! I'm definately getting used to this leaving work early thing!

it's a charmed life

Tonight I stayed in and it was amazing. I had a grilled nutella and banana sandwich, painted a lot and watched amazing movies (adventures in baby sitting, casablanca and uptown girls). I've spent alot of money at hobby lobby the past few days (paint brushes and canvases are on sale!) and my favorite purchases are my two new painting books, "Brushless Painting" (using sponges and stamps and dobbers and q-tips, etc.) and "Sponge Painting" (landscapes and flowers with kitchen sponges). I am absolutely in love with my books and cannot wait to paint more! I also got two Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn!) how-to-paint kits, one is watercolor and the other is oil pastel sticks and am excited to try them out! I'll let you know how it goes!

isn't it ironic

I love how things always work out for me! Right after my previous blogging bitch session, one of the lab assistants decided it was time to fill me in on what I'll actually be doing for the summer. I organized all of the samples I'll be using and looked over all the different ELISA test kits I'll be using. I was able to just come in today and get started right away, knowing exactly what was expected of me, it was wonderful!

I went to Tulsa for the weekend since I had two shifts to work at St. Johns. Both of which were actually pretty boring (not that I'm complaining). All my patients on saturday evening were totally self-care and those that werent just slept the entire shift. On Sunday I had to float down to 10E: surgical acute care (I usually work on 14W: oncology)which I was kind of dreading since I have never floated before, but I ended up just being a sitter (literally a babysitter) for an old man who was kind of confused. He kept talking about how he was going to leave but he had a court order to stay there. I really dont think he had anywhere to go anyway. I didnt really bring any reading material thought so I got to watch A LOT of television including the Scifi channel, wrestling, fishing and parts of movies (just enough so that I would get into it and then he would change it!).

I have decided that this is going to be my healthy summer! I am ready to eat healthier and get in shape again! My apartment is on the third floor and it should not be work to go up the stairs!! For lunch I had a veggie burger and some carrots and grapes and it was so so so yummy!

I guess I spoke too soon when I said love.

I am so frustruated and I have no clue what to do. I hate it! I keep waiting and asking for them to show me what to do and they just keep pissing away the days. I dont know how many more times I can ask what I'm supposed to do. And then to make matters worse, I hear her asking when I'm getting started on my project. I dont know because I have no idea what to do! I feel like this summer is a disaster. Since I'm from the school of thought that believes that everything in our lives was brought there by our thoughts, it makes me feel mad/sad/weird/upset to know that this lab is this way because I brought it upon myself. I almost makes me feel borderline hopeless. I was really hoping for this summer to be a smashing success and for me to learn a lot and to love research and all that jazz, but honestly, I just dont know. At least its nice to know that its not me that feels this way. Pretty much everyone else I've talked to is in the same boat. No one knows whats going on.

antiphospholipid antibodies

So I'm sitting in lab, playing on my computer......I guess I'm should be reading something related to my project, but I've already read a couple articles and the grant and I need a break! I feel kind of lost, like I have no idea whats going on. Its not just me though b/c the med student doing a similar project feels the same way, haha!

evening in barcelona

The only time I ever get headaches is when I am dehydrated. Note to self: bring insanely large amounts of water to future PPM Clinic time since drinkable water doesnt seem to be found there. I am suprised this even happens since I am known to drink gallons of water daily; you'd think I would have quite a bit stored up, kind of like a camel.

Since clinicals went much later than expected today, I convinced myself I JUST HAD TO HAVE sonic for dinner. I feel like a blob of disgusting fried fat floating in a pool of grease. Too bad when I'm exhausted and a little bit sleepy I forget how much I dislike how I feel after I eat fastfood regardless of the place. Maybe next time I'll finally remember?

I miss my bed from home. I miss the huge-ness of my queen so I can spread out all I want. I miss my three pillows lined up so no matter which way I turn there is always neck support. Most of all I miss having a bed not made of foam and saggy springs.
