      Well since it's finals week, I have periods of studying and watching videos on youtube :)

      if you want to be productive, well, ask me in a few days when biochem isn't the only thing on my mind...

          And I have to respond to this simply because I'm constantly checking these forums to see if anyone has UF interviews....

          If your refrigerator is running, you better go and catch it! Lame, I know, but we did that so many times as kids that right now it made me laugh and not worry about UF for a second!!

            Eat lots of fiber, then it is difficult to concentrate on anything.
            :laugh:

            My interview is this friday, and I am currently done with finals so I can relate to the waiting game. I'm finishing up a couple of books right now and probably hit up a few more over the break. I've been debating what tv shows I am going to watch now that I actually have the time. The first that I am knocking out it Plant Earth on blueray. After that, I'm not sure, although I've been thinking about Dexter...

                  Can't hurt. I'm taking Immunology next semester for that very reason. I'd rather get into those classes in pharm school and be less stressed as it would be mostly review.

                    Spare time? What's that?

                    I will be spending my "time off" from school (only a few weeks) working 40+ hours at the hospital. :( However, I did make the time to go see that new movie Invictus with Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman- it was superb. On Jan. 2nd, I will be marching in the Fiesta Bowl Parade with the Play It Again Band (I play flute). Other than that (and family Christmas stuff), I plan on doing NOTHING. I am going to sit on my couch and watch Nat Geo. LOL :woot:

                      Man I applied really early and was basically one of the first groups to interview for the 4 pharmacy schools in my sig. I found out of acceptances in October. Once I was in I was instantly in slacker mode lol. Now I have 9 months to kill before pharmacy school starts.

                          For all those Dexter watchers... what if the last 5 mins of the finale weren't real, and they were simply an illusion of Dexter's? :confused:

                          It probably was real, and this is just me not wanting to accept it.

                          Judging from the interviews with the directors, and the fact that Julie Benz is going to Broadway (or something of that nature) I'd say it wasn't a dream sequence.

                          I still do not really know how I feel about the whole thing lol

                            Can't wait for next season!

                            The wife brought up a good point. How are they gonna explain away the fact she was killed Trinity style? I mean Quinn's already up his butt to begin with, and that's gonna look really strange since it doesn't fit with his normal plan
