And miles to go before I sleep

My eyes sting with exhaustion and it’s not even 10 in the morning yet. I stumbled across a playlist on 8tracks inspired by Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by woods on a snowy evening” and it’s giving me the strength I need to keep going. I am studying at Jannie’s today, even though she left for Sweden this morning. I came over before she left with coffee and breakfast to say goodbye and pick up her spare key, since I will be taking care of her plants while I am here. She was nice enough to offer me to stay and study here instead of Starbucks – which is great because the only comfortable chairs there are outside and it’s freezing today!
I’m lucky that this last exam isn’t anywhere near to the magnitude of the others. There is so little information available to us – chemotaxis, as you probably could have guessed, is not the most well-known branch of biology/clinical pathology. So today I will read the wikipedia article (written by my professor) and a short 30-page guide he wrote – there is no textbook. In a way, I’m actually looking forward to studying it. It just might have been easier if I had more time and wasn’t so tired!
