a bloggy update from your friendly neighborhood chemistry girl

I’m a horrible blogger….

Don’t argue, it’s true.

I forget to blog for weeks on end, and then when I do, it’s not always entertaining.  Like this one… it’s mostly just an update, so if you’re not interested in reading about my life, you might as well move on now.

Please don’t.

But seriously…. My life is hectic right now. I’ve been spending a good portion of my time studying for my physical chemistry midterm on Tuesday night. Though the good thing is that I seem to be feeling fairly confident at this point. The only thing that sucks is that I also have a creative writing assignment due the same day, a midterm on Thursday and then a lab report and tutorial assignment due Friday.


(excuse me a minute while I faint)

Some good news is … since I’ve been on medication.. my stress, depression and anxiety have been getting a little better. I still have days where the crazy doesn’t let me leave the house, but I’m not sure yet if that’s normal or not.

What is normal, anyway?

Or it could be that I have nights where I forget to take my pill. There’s a reason that I use the patch instead of the pill for birth control… otherwise I’d have probably 6 kids by now… that’s how often I forget to take a pill that I’m supposed to take daily.

So… forgetting to take my meds every day OR normal amounts of crazy while on medication… not sure yet.. I’m headed to the doctor in a couple weeks, so I guess I’ll find out then.

It’s going to be a crazy year…. I’m taking condensed organic chemistry over the summer … so my summer is going to be filled with mechanisms and carbon compounds. If that scares the hell out of you… well… join the club, cuz it scares the ever loving shit out of me also.

Why did I choose chemistry anyway?

I hope all is well with everyone else, and I hope to have something funny to say sometime soon. Or maybe not…. But keep checking, cuz I need love and validation.

Who doesn’t?

XOXOX all!


  1. Oh honey! Let's find a way to chat. Minus the chemistry part, I think you and I have a lot to talk about...

  2. I totally understand being busy and sporadically blogging. I keep thinking about blog posts I should do, but never get around to actually writing them. Keep updating when you can and hopefully I'll post something soon :).

  3. Glad the crazy is getting a little better. Take the time you need to take care of things in your real life. We'll still be here when you get back :)

    Also, my Husband has his PhD in organic chemistry, which I think makes him certifiably insane. Hope your summer class doesn't kick your butt too hard.


  4. A very belated dose of love and validation!! I've been a mess with the blogging (and especially the reading) lately, too! Glad to hear about the meds. I've had to work on strategies to make sure I take mine everyday. I think I've finally found a good one that works pretty well. Off to catch up on your other posts...
