Back to the Grind

  2004-10-13


Thanksgiving went well, on the whole. We got back to Edmonton on Monday at around 6 PM. I tried out a new drug on the way back, as well. It is a patch with scopalamine on it. IT seemed to work alright with only minor irritation where it was attached (mostly psychological, I kept forgetting it was there at first). I never did get nauseous on that trip, but I did sleep for over half of it, so it is hard to say what its part in my drowsiness was because I didn't get a whole lot of sleep the night before. Looking ahead at my class schedule suggests that things are going to get rough rather soon. I have nearly all of my midterms in a four day period, so I am going to be working like crazy to prepare for them. I hate that kind of pressure because I am usually ready to fall apart at its finale, but I have precious little choice this time. I think I will try to get my homework out of the way now, so I don't have to worry about it later, during the midterms.
