six weeks of sleep + no caffeine

It might be an understatement to say dental school’s been stressful lately. In studying for our last physiology exam, we studied the different hormones. We learned about the actual physiological effects constant pathological stress has on our body. We become more irritable, get headaches, and have low-functioning immune systems. That explains a lot of things…

This Wednesday marks beginning of Lent, or Ash Wednesday. One year my best friend and I decided to give up gossiping. In theory it was a great idea but every time we’d just say “oh, but that's not gossip, that’s a discussion…”. What I mean to say is that it was a big failure.

This year I am saying bye to coffee. (I say this while watching The Perfect Cappuccino on Netflix.) And hand in hand with this, getting more sleep by making better use of my time.

I’ve been going to meditation sessions and falling asleep at each one! As relaxing as it is, I don’t mean to snooze- but I do, which means I’m probably sleep deprived.

Good evening and good night!


  1. Hi. Great blog. May i ask what iPad app you use to view and take note on class note? Thanks.

    1. I use the Notability App. It's great because I can import lecture slides as a PDF and take handwritten notes on the iPad. The app's like $1.99 from the app store.

  2. Notability; got it. I've only used Adobe Reader app so far for that purpose. Will be sure to check out Notability.

  3. I completely forgot about lent! I should get started right away
