New Year’s Eve Curse

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, I just don’t.

I prefer to call them goals!

Mostly, I just want to save money (stop online shopping!) and graduate college (3 months to go!)


What are you doing New Year’s Eve?

I have a New Year’s Eve curse.

Maybe that’s because I watch The O.C. episode “The Countdown” every year?  Who knows.

I am currently watching that episode right now.

Past New Year’s Eves have consisted of a bad, smokey, old people party then watching Team America AND THEN going home all dressed up and watching The O.C. all alone, missing midnight while at the movie theater, celebrating the new year at Tim Horton’s, missing my chance at a kiss the first time I ever went out (I drove the guy home at 11:30pm, how lame), watching meerkats on tv (which was a little bit awesome), last year was better but I slept on a hard floor.


This year isn’t much better.

This is me right now:Image


The Scare

I can’t believe how long it’s been!

Time is flying by, only 24 more days until Christmas.  Only 30 days left of this year!

I’ve done two full practicum days aka taking blood from strangers. Terrifying? Yes.  Awesome? Also yes.

So there’s that.

I’ve been feeling off the last few days, I blamed it on weaning myself off my anxiety meds, but then someone at work asked if I’m a coffee drinker and it clicked!  I haven’t had coffee since Wednesday.


Me.  Caffeine addict.  No coffee.

How could this happen?

I raced upstairs to the break room, glanced at the gross instant coffee and instead divulged in two cups of green tea.

It helped, but tomorrow will be different.
