levity: (inconceivable!)
Things I am doing:

1. Comparing the merits of sleeping for an hour and then waking up to watch Barcelona play Chelsea vs. just not sleeping at all. This is the price you pay for Champions League football. Along with, you know, all the other more empire-building-related ones. Which sounds like I'm talking about the thing in New York King Kong climbed to the top of, which is a pretty good indication that I ought to shut up now. So.

2. Rewriting an overview of a med school subject. Re because I've given up on recovering the first document from the temperamental desktop I wrote it on. Trying not to feel like I'm faking the whole thing, because if you want someone to give you a decent overview of a med school subject? THAT SOMEONE IS NOT ME. That someone is so far from being me it's slightly hilarious, only not, because that someone isn't here writing this overview, I am, pretending to know about books and insider tips and all the rest. Well. Sucks to be UPCM 2017.

(Sed and Allen, if you are somewhere out there reading this, please know that I love you both and I love the whole primer thing, etc., etc., just, you know, when I said that I was willing write a subject overview if you were willing to trust in my ability to write a subject overview, I didn't actually expect anyone to take me up on the offer.)

3. Talking about college-entrance-exam-passing with the brother.

4. Thinking that if I were slightly less lucky on UPCAT day- or slightly less lucky in general, I guess- I wouldn't be in med school right now.

5. Trying not to think about HOW MUCH BETTER that would have been. (Though, okay, there's a chance that I'd have hated the past few years regardless of whether or not I was in Intarmed. But still. It's the theatrical melodrama that counts, etc.)

6. FAILING.

levity: (mes que un club)
ESPN is a lying liar that advertises Champions League matches and then doesn't televise them. My stream is fuzzy and intermittent and in German but I spent twenty minutes trying to get one to work, so I'm not complaining.

Aaanyway. Here's to the guys I haven't seen play in far too long. May the best team win, and may the best team be Barcelona.


ETA: The pictures on my stream froze just as Ramires started running towards Barcelona's end of the pitch, but the sound of a goal being scored is the same everywhere. The hell, Barcelona. I hope I haven't jinxed anything.


ETA 2: YOU HAVE TWENTY MINUTES TO SCORE TWO GOALS, GUYS. WHY AM I BEING PUT IN THIS POSITION AGAIN. TWENTY MINUTES. TWO GOALS. VAMOS BARCA.


ETA 3: Gods, guys, can we not go five minutes without the referee having to blow for a foul? Honestly.

P.S. Puyi. Capi. I love you.


ETA 4: Augh. We have to beat them at Camp Nou, then. Vamos Barca.
