It's Baaaaaack!

Hey hey hey, it's Wednesday! Hooray! 

Okay, that's enough pseudo-rhyming for now. You may have noticed (or not, I have no idea) that Humpday Confessions had disappeared. That's because the host, Kathy, of Vodka and Soda, laid the link-up to rest. Melissa, of Making Melissa, has graciously picked up the mantle and lots of people are really excited, myself included! So, without further ado... Humpday Confessions!

This morning was the first time that I ever made a real breakfast on a weekday before 10 am. I am not a breakfast eater; usually, I can't stomach anything more than liquids before 10 am. This morning, though, I woke up at 5 am and was unable to go back to sleep, so when I got up at 7:45, I was starving. I scrambled some eggs and threw a bagel in my purse to toast at school, and voila... breakfast. I make some pretty great scrambled eggs, if I do say so myself. And don't tell me that you can't screw up scrambled eggs, because trust me, it's been done.

I may make great scrambled eggs, but that is only way I've ever cooked them. I understand the mechanics of a fried egg and a poached egg, but I've never done it.

Victoria got me this mug and some caramel syrup for Christmas, and I am obsessed with both of them. Probably a little too much.

I am really not on board with this whole going back to school thing. My brain is just not ready to be functional yet. So sleepy.

I carry way too much crap in my purses. Yesterday, I was changing purses and in the process, discovered a pair of socks (clean), an umbrella, many receipts, two clementines, a watch, and a yogurt cup. (I threw that out, even though I had only put it in there that morning. Still... gross.) This is probably why the strap on my black purse recently separated itself from the bag. Sorry, bag.

I'm totally not paying attention to the physiology lecture right now, but since the professor is essentially just reading his slides, of which we have copies, I don't feel that bad about it.

Last night, my best friend was sworn in as the mayor of a town near me and I was positively kvelling last night at the ceremony. She's the youngest, female, mayor in the state! I feel like I know someone famous.

My birthday is on Friday (29!) and I am already really excited about the birthday goodies I've been getting. So far, I have a free pastry at Panera, a free milkshake at Zinburger, and $15 from The Limited. Whoo!

I've been having bizarre dreams about the diamonds falling out of my engagement ring and wedding band. What does it mean!?

I don't know what it is, but I really love baroreceptors and control physiology. I'm having major flashbacks to autonomic physiology at Penn last fall. #nerdstatus

My friend Julie got engaged on New Year's Day and I AM SO EXCITED!!! She and her fiance, Mike, are adorable, and I'm almost as excited about her wedding as I was about my own.

The only things I am looking forward to this weekend are food and sleep-related. Then again, I guess that's not specific to this weekend alone...


And with that, I'm off to theoretically learn more about the kidneys. Thank your kidneys today; they're very busy and important. Oh, and if you live where winter happens, stay warm. Only 72 days until spring!

  1. I love birthday month when all the freebies start rolling in. It's really the best. :)

  2. My best friend recently got engaged too and I think I am just as excited as she is! :)

  3. I have definitely messed up scrambled eggs plenty of times, and it's the only way I've ever cooked them too! #twins

  4. I'm in a math class right now and my eyes keep crossing. It's online but I almost would rather attend a class because then, maybe, I might pay more attention. That is so awesome about your best friend being sworn in as mayor! Also congrats to your friend Julie!!

  5. Wait, mine doesn't have a straw! Although... I use mine for coffee, so I guess I don't need a straw. But yes, I'm obsessed with mine! And whoooo, birthday Starbucks! I forgot that I can go do that today! Thanks for reminding me!

  6. It SO is. Send me all the coupons, universe!

  7. I'm trying really hard not to be like, "HERE IS ALL OF MY WEDDING KNOWLEDGE!" because she'd probably punch me in the face, but I'M SO EXCITED!

  8. We are such twins. For so many reasons. :)

  9. Ughhh online classes drive me nuts! I never focus in them and always forget to do stuff. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. You have to buy them separately, but it's worth it for messy people like Megan.


Leave me a note! I always reply and I love meeting other bloggers!
