I'm thinking that I might switch my blog over to Tumblr. I'm starting to get bored with my Blogger layout, and while I can change it, they all pretty much look the same. Tumblr has a lot of really exciting layouts. They are different and awesome :)
Though, I kinda like being able to go back and look at my old posts. So I'll be sad to just leave them here all alone. :'(
Ok. I've done it. I switched over to Tumblr. Goodbye blogger!

I hate crushes. They're stupid. And they never work well for me, because I always get too attached. And I promised myself that I would not have anymore crushes. I was doing SO WELL for like, 6 months! And yet, here I am in this position again. Over thinking everything, asking everyone their opinions, facebooking, plotting, and most importantly: GETTING MY HOPES UP FOR NO GODDAMN REASON. And I'm not being pessimistic. It's just true. He hasn't shown ANY signs of being interested. But I must be kind of masochistic, because I'm thinking about asking him out anyways on that small, itsy, bitsy chance that maybe he'll decide to give ME a chance. Which is pretty much just setting myself up for failure and undoing all the good my self-esteem has been up to in the past 6 months. Why? Why do I let this happen? I swear though, I think the only way a relationship is ever going to work out for me is if he decides to pursue me. They have to surprise attack me. Otherwise I scare all the men away with my... Andieness? I don't know. That's what I should call it though. My Andieness. Grrrr.

So you know that analogy about the brain being a sponge so you can soak up knowledge? Well, sometimes I feel like I soak up too much knowledge. For example, last year when I took anatomy I studied so much that I started to go a little insane. My brain was a sponge and it was soaking up knowledge. But it got to the point that I felt like my sponge was starting to infringe on my skull. And because of that, water (a.k.a. KNOWLEDGE) was leaking out of the sponge to form a psychotic puddle in my head.
That's how I feel now. I have a functional anatomy test tomorrow and I started studying a little bit later than I would have liked. Also, I have a crying friend in my room whose roommates are being awful. Which leaves me with the couch to sleep on tonight (not that I'm gonna get much sleep)since I'm not done studying and she needs to go to bed. And then there are my two genius lab partners who are freaking out about the exam, which in turn is making me freak out. And then I was studying via Skype with Erin but Kelsey shushed me so now I'm scared that I was keeping her up. And all of these things are making my brain feel like it's leaking. But I need to calm down. Because when I get stressed out, I don't remember shit. I think I have mild test anxiety. So I. Need. To. Calm. Down.
Wish me luck.

I am such an anatomy nerd. So Erin and I and Angela were discussing nerdy turn-ons and here's what we've got so far (and I stole a couple from online):
- Palpate me more baby.
- I want to be the atlas to your axis and pivot on your dens
- I want to fuse like intercranial sutures
- You pump my heart like epinephrine
- I want you to be the femoral head to my acetabulum
- If you touch my gracilis I will say 'gracias'
- I'll make your orbicularis oris say "OHHH"
- If I was endoplasmic reticulum, would you want me smooth or rough?
- If my right leg is the cell wall, and my left leg is the membrane, do you want to be the cytoplasm?
- My sudden protracted cardiac arrhythmia tells me I love you
- If I were a Schwann cell I would squeeze around your axon and give you a fast action potential
- How about we palpate our anterior superior iliac spines together
- You have 206 bones in your body, want one more?
- Whenever I am near you I undergo anaerobic respiration, because you take my breath away
- My hypothalamus must be secreting serotonin because baby I want you!
- Baby, I want to be your neuromuscular junction so I can stimulate your action potential
- My adductor isn't all that's longus
Got any others fellow anatomy nerds? :)

Can go die. It is 11:46 pm and I am TRYING to be a good little student and study for physics. But I just can't find the motivation. I already have an A+++ in the class and I know that I still have to study. But I don't want to. I want to sleep. I want to browse iTunes. I want to look at Zac Levi's beautiful face. And every time I try to study, I hear Professor Vawter's OBNOXIOUS voice in my head.
"Now I know that you all only care about getting good grades. But school isn't ALL about GETTING good grades. It's about UNDERSTANDING the material. But you ONLY care about the GRADES! How are you SUPPOSED to LEARN if you don't UNDERSTAND the MATERIAL? Now I'm going to LECTURE you all for 45 MINUTES about stupid TOPICS and have my voice CRACK every FEW words, and more FREQUENTLY when I'M getting WORKED UP!" In summation: Physics can go die.
My new favorite song :) guess where I found it? Chuck of course! I always find the greatest music during that show. And on another note: this weeks episode of Chuck was fan-freaking-tastic. Like I could watch it over and over again because I loved it so much. *sigh* I'm so marrying Zac Levi.

I love this show :) Nathan Fillion is so awesome. And I think this is like, the cutest thing ever :) Granted, they were doing it as a cover, but you can tell by their faces that they totally both enjoyed it. Now Beckett just needs to break up with her boyfriend so they can be together.

I have a Netter, ha haha haha ha! For those who don't know, a Netter is actually Frank Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy. It's pretty much the bible of physical therapy. It's something that I'll keep and use for the rest of my career. This guy PAINTS all of his pictures. Every bone, muscle, organ etc. is in that book in excruciating detail. And he painted it! It's amazing. I love being able to see any muscle I want to. I am such a nerd, but proud of it! I don't think I've ever been this excited to get a book haha. You know you are all jealous of my nerdiness and my Netter.

HEY OH. Listen to what I sayyyyy oh.
Another reason I can't sleep is because there is SO MUCH SNOW OUTSIDE. And I love snow. I am literally like a child in the snow. Except for when it started snowing it was 9 pm on a school night when I was already exhausted. So I didn't go out to play in the snow :( And the weather report says that around 6 am it's going to start RAINING. RAIN, THE EVIL FIEND, THE CRUSHER OF DREAMS, THE MENACE OF THE NORTHWEST, THE SATAN OF WEATHER (actually I honestly believe that would be the wind), but most importantly, THE MELTER OF SNOW. If it rains, all the snow is going to melt, along with my happiness :( I want a snow day! I want class to be cancelled and I want to be able to play in legit snow tomorrow! Is that too much to ask for?
Man I'm a blogging fiend tonight.
So apparently this is a piece of art called reoccurring dreams. Just in case you were wondering what the heck the picture had to do with anything.
So before you read this post, you should read the last one. Because this goes along with my Teddy Bear Thesis.
The other day my Aunt was telling me about this reoccurring dream that she had. Then my whole family went around discussing reoccurring dreams. And I didn't think I had any. But that last post made me remember! I have had so many dreams where I bring my bear with me into public. And that's really the only distinguishing thing about the dream. Sometimes I'm at a movie, sometimes I'm at school. But I always have my bear with me. And then all of a sudden I realize that I have brought my bear into public. And I become extremely embarrassed. It's like that dream where you come to school naked, or you have a test that you didn't know about but everyone else did. Though I've never had either of those dreams, I assume they give you the same feeling.

So I made a bad decision. It was snowing outside and I was feeling very much in a warm and cozy mood, so I decided to have some hot chocolate. That was a terrible decision for me. Especially since I have a hard time falling asleep on a normal night. So even though I'm exhausted, I'm still laying here awake. And I guess it's not that late... but it's late enough that I want to be asleep.
Anyways, I was thinking about this weird thing that I do. I call it my Teddy Bear Thesis. And I'll have to make a little bit of an embarrassing confession in order to explain. So here it goes: I still sleep with a teddy bear. But not in a childish my bear is my best friend kind of way. It's more of a need to hold something in my arms close to me while I sleep (if I'm not home I still end up using the sheets or a pillow for the same purpose). I noticed in high school though, that when I have a boyfriend I don't need my bear. And not just when the boyfriend is physically there. I don't ever use the bear at all if I have a boyfriend. Which is kinda weird. So I've decided that I think it comes from a need to feel close to someone, to have a person to embrace you and keep you safe. When I have a boyfriend, I feel safe, secure and happy. And don't get me wrong, I'm perfectly happy with the way my life is right now. I think it's a deeper thing that I can't really explain.
Like I said, I was just thinking about it. So I thought I'd share this embarrassing little tidbit of information with all of you. So don't judge me :p

I just realized that in my headphone singing comic post that I only actually posted the first half of the comic. Which isn't actually funny at all. So if you are here reading this post, scroll down to the bottom of the page and go re-read the headphone singing post. Because now it has a punch line and it actually is funny, I promise. Oh and I got that comic from The Oatmeal if you wanna check it out. They've got some pretty funny comics.
One of my favorite things in the entire world is being able to sleep in, then waking up and just laying in bed while I watch tv on my laptop. It makes me sound really lazy, but it's just so peaceful. Nowadays there is always something for me to worry about. For example, today I need to write a mitigation letter for my speeding ticket, I need to go work out, I need to work on Functional Anatomy, I need to get ready for Kelsey's birthday tonight and I need to get my car fixed. But in the morning when I'm laying in bed and watching my tv, I don't have to worry about those things yet. I can just stay warm and comfy inside my bed. It's the calm before the storm. The sleeping in part is really nice too. This year I have become such a night person. Or maybe just NOT a morning person. I despise the mornings. If I have to get up before 9. I feel like a creature of the night when my alarm goes off at 7.

Happy New Year's everyone! Hope that everybody had a good time. I sure did! We went out with a really good group of people, and most importantly, MEAGAN was there! She's finally back from Ghana and I am so excited that she's home I can hardly contain myself. I did get a little sick though.... I mixed too many different types of alcohol. Not a good idea.
My New Year's Resolutions are: 1) to get back on the healthy bandwagon. Meaning no sweets, limited bread products, exercising 3 times a week (at least) and all that jazz. 2) I want to reach my goal weight by the time we go to Las Vegas for Spring Break. That's about 14 more pounds, unless I gained a significant amount of weight over break. It's quite possible and I think I can do it :) 3) Get better grades, be better at delegating studying time. 4) Marry Zac Levi.
