as every year, revision period means more Golden Lines from my biochem teacher that i jotted down on the margins of my notebook
*enters class* Are any of you comic book aficionados?
[…] red blood cells are essentially dead, but don’t know it yet.
It’s a very interesting topic *glares at the room full of students not paying attention* even if I’m going to discuss it only with myself
Tasmanian devils are the animal equivalent of Klingons. *dead silence and blank stares* …During their mating rituals, they bite each other’s faces
[Cancers] are your cells with their own agenda.
What I call “the Daily Mail hypothesis” is that everything in the world either cures cancer or gives you cancer; the doctors know which is which, but won’t tell you
Getting old isn’t so bad, if you consider the alternative. (not sure if he meant dying or the downsides of immortality)
*looks wistfully into the distance* Have you ever wondered why trees don’t die of cancer?
[still on carcinogens] …and the 3rd category are all those things people worry about, like chemicals on apples, radiation from microwaves, Donald Trump… *laughter* Well, you ain’t that orange for no reason.
*makes an important announcement a semester in advance bc everyone always skips his classes* *sighs deeply* I feel like a priest on Christmas already wishing everyone Happy Easter too because he knows he won’t see them until next Christmas
Also, academic texts. Full of bullshit. You could sum that stuff up in like three paragraphs, but some old white dude is gonna ramble on using unnecessarily lavish vocabulary for three whole pages until you want to cry.
in other news today i found out that eddie redmayne has a degree in art history and for his diploma he wrote a 12k words analysis of a picture that’s basically a blue square on a black background; the thing was it was a very unique shade of blue, actually used there for the first time ever; however, being colorblind, i quote, he had no idea what the colour was but well, it looked very pretty to him
and somehow i find this very uplifting i mean if you can pull sth like that off, write a 12k words thesis on a colour you don’t even recognize properly, anything is possible and this is the story of how eddie redmayne officially became my saint patron of high level academic bullshitting
I hope y'all had a lovely start to the week. I will be leaving the States on Thursday since I have to start my practical legal training earlier than expected… I’m so excited to start my legal journey 👩🏼⚖️

23/3/17 I’m working on a physical geography practical write up right now about glaciers and it’s really tricky because I’m not sure how I should be answering the questions! It’s due in at 2pm, and its 10am now so I’m going to knuckle down and get it done. I pressed a flower I picked the other week, and its sitting next to my thermos today. It has the quote that inspired the name for this blog on it! Yesterday I got a helix piercing and went and read the lord of the rings in the gardens, so it was a really nice day, but I didn’t get much work done! xxx emily
I’m still aliveeee, even if I haven’t been posting here since ages - and I’m SO sorry. I finished my exams on Monday and right now I’m enjoying the last days of freedom before second semester starts (on Monday, 27th).
[ For those of you who didn’t know, I’m actually more active on Instagram @ stephiestudies - follow me there if you wanna see more of my bujo, and study routine too.
Here’s a shot I took some days ago, when I reached 1k on IG. I’m still not sure how this happened but it made my day! I’m so blessed and thankful to each one of you.
