am i the grinch

khadgar and illidan on a romantic first date at the movies

khadgar, straddling a massive bucket of conjured popcorn mixed in with mana Pepsi™ and chewing loudly: hey do you want any of these pissy shitties. i conjured them myself. they’re called pissy shitties and they’re considered a delicacy in dalaran

illidan, crying green slime through his blindfold: this movie is so fucking moving. this film is so sad it is the only movie that understands who i am (they’re watching The Grinch with Jim Carey)

Christmas music before December makes me want to throw whatever the music is coming from out of a fucking window

I just realized that I am the Grinch when it’s finals week:

WHEN I LOOK AT MY FINAL EXAM SCHEDULE:

WHEN I START STRESS EATING:

WHEN I REALIZE HOW MUCH STUDYING I STILL HAVE TO DO:

WHEN I TRY TO PROCRASTINATE DOING MY WORK:

WHEN I REALIZE THAT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ON THE STUDY GUIDE:

WHEN ALL THE LATE NIGHT CRAMMING CAUSED ME TO START TO LOSE MY SANITY:

WHEN MY FRIENDS START TO GET CONCERNED THAT THEY HAVEN’T SEEN ME IN DAYS:

WHEN MY FRIENDS FINALLY CONVINCE ME TO GO OUT:

WHEN I REALIZE THAT WINTER BREAK IS JUST…

WHEN MY CLASS FINISHES OUR FINAL:

AFTER I FINISH ALL MY FINALS AND REALIZE THAT I NO LONGER NEED TO REMEMBER ANYTHING FROM MY CLASSES UNTIL AFTER BREAK:

“Do you guys think I could rig up the office with traps like this kid does?!”

“If you do I’m not defending you in court Trucy.”k“Haha, we all know Polly’s gonna be the one to get into all of them!”

And here’s my secret santa for @miluotic!! I know you said you wanted some family fluff and being the grinch that I am I chose the only festive thing I’d ever done; watching home alone with the family.

I hope you have a good one this year!

A NOT SO TYPICAL “THINGS I’VE LEARNED IN MY FIRST YEAR OF VET SCHOOL” POST

I have been meaning to do this post. But I have been postponing it because I think there are a lot of these here on tumblr. 

Most of them are studying and organization tips like: study earlier, organize your schedule, sleep etc. So I decided to do a slightly different one, enjoy.

1st year is misleading!

I’m not saying that the 1st year is easy, but it’s definitely easier. It was pretty much comparable to my bachelor’s in Biology. Very broad classes not very veterinary incline yet. 

So, don’t worry a lot about your first year because it won’t unbearable. Dark times are coming tough!

Don’t slack off in the 2nd semester…

My first semester was easy peasy, I did study a lot, actually a lot lot. But I wasn’t ripping my hair off you know? Naturally my GPA was high and I was a proud nerd. 

Second semester come and I slacked off, maybe because, naturally, you become tired since you’ve spend the entire last semester studying and working, so much that your body kind of lacks that first wave of positivism and ambition you had at the beginning. YOU NEED TO PUSH TROUGH! OK, JUST DO IT. My GPA drop a little not too much but enough for me to realize that good things only come with effort!

Don’t let vague bring you down!

You are a 1st year student, a freshman, a newbie. Accept this! You won’t be scrubbing in, you won’t be living the Grey’s Anatomy fantasy. You are starting at the bottom. You are going to be learning a lot of subjects you think are useless and not really very veterinarianesk

What did you expect? You need to know your basics! Vet school is 4+ years (in my country 5 and ½ + thesis), it’s a ladder. You need to be patient, give your best and in a blink of an eye you’ll be actually doing what you are working hard for. So enjoy this care free years and actually learn. You don’t want to be a bad doctor, do you?

Don’t be arrogant and superior, you’ll need your classmates!

I’ve been guilty of this without doing on purpose. You need to understand that not everyone has your Christina Yang ambition. Some of your classmates have children and families, other hobbies, a life you know? So DON’T demean them! EVER. 

In my case it was about group presentations. I’m a perfectionist and over the top neurotic (and also I need a scholarship, or else…) and they simply didn’t have the time to put the same effort  in as mini Christina here. The result? For an entire year I did all of the group papers and presentation and end up screwed because my group members couldn’t deliver a good presentation. 

What should you do? RESPECTFULLY, find yourself another group of people that share the same ambition or do it alone. If you can not choose your group then stop being a Grinch and guide your team mates and help them do the best they can!

You’ll get annoyed by some of the things people assume about you!

If you are the type of person who has good grades. A few things will happen to you:

  1. People will demean your effort. Like they’ll actually assume that you don’t study and your grades appear to you because you’re a personified Dr. House or something. They don’t consider that you spend most of your free time actually studying and putting in the hours and refusing to go out and have a social life. It makes me crazy!
  2. People will ask for your class notes the minute that class ends, and most of the time they’ve spent the whole class on their phone because they know that you’ll give it to them. I don’t mind sharing, I’ve always shared my notes and papers and even have offer it without people asking but come on…
  3. People will call you arrogant an cocky without even knowing you. That might be because you build a relationship with your teachers, you put your arm up to answer (or ask) questions in class or because you don’t party as much as them. People assume you are some ambitious monster because you strive to be the best, what they don’t know is that you don’t want to be the best of the class, just the best self you can be! I don’t know maybe people don’t understand my humor? I’m a little bit of too much of a sarcastic.

But hey not everything is bad! Because of that I’ve found my little group of friends that I know love me for who I am and don’t mind that I’m a little of a Grinch sometimes! You’ll find your place, just remember that you need to be yourself no matter what!
