Forgive me if my posts are more sporadic than their usual sporadicity (I know I know, not a word). My computer power cord has decided to give up the ghost. At first I thought it was my laptop and I was very concerned, but then I plugged it in with my friend's cord today and it works, so I guess I have to buy another stupid 89 dollar cord for this thing. This is the third Toshiba satellite I've heard of within my class that has a broken power cord... I think they may have a product reliability problem.
I'm also cramming like I've never crammed before (or similarly, probably, to how I crammed for Christmas exams) trying to learn all of resp, renal and cardio in the next week and a half. Exams start April 13th and I'm scared shitless (as usual). Thank god I've got my tunes. I was thinking today that exam time is that time when I listen to one album obsessively over and over. It becomes my study soundtrack. Sometimes it can be one song. I tune it out mostly but I'll forever associate that album/song with that exam thereafter. This exam period it's the Dixie Chicks album "Taking the long way" which I bought right after I saw their movie "Shut up and Sing". This album has some great catchy tunes and some really nice sad ballads and a few real country numbers. I'm not what I would call a country music fan, but I've always liked the chicks and this album is their best yet.
Past exam albums have included: K.T. Tunstall - Eye to the Telescope
Mashups by various artists including soulwax
I am Sam Sountrack (beatles covers by various artists)
