2 years of MBA, 2 years of IBS.... oh god, i hope not!

oooohhhh midterms are upon us. 

*financial reporting midterm was a group one and is now behind me, my group got a 42/50, which sounds respectable but in grad school it is all about the average, and this score was just under the average.  major bummer!
*statistics, wicked hard test on probability functions that i took wed., will see how i do on that one, but i thinking 80/100 or 85/100 (after the curve)  curious to see how close my prediction is. (also already given a pretty complex assignment on determining confidence intervals and writing them up into a report for a marketing team, due on wed. this coming week)  that is just cruel in my opinion. (way to kick your students while they are down professor r)
*organizational behavior, midterm is on monday, i need to make about 250 flash cards this weekend for this test.
*marketing midterm on tuesday night (definitely typed tuesnight first)  which i will begin studying for, after the monday midterm, so as to not confuse my brain.

saturday (after 12), i am officially taking a pause from add meds and studying and will go to the homecoming game (sdsu vs air force), with pickle and some mba friends/classmates/peers?  we will be tailgating and eating unhealthy food and drinking beer. 

ofcourse i am thinking that i might bring a sac lunch and be sipping peppermint tea.  reason being, i have self diagnosed myself with ibs and partaking in frat boy like drinking doesn't sound like a good idea.   (surprised?, i have talked about grosser things on my blog before) 
isn't it that true you take your amazingly intricate and delicate digestive system for granted, until the day it stops working.

i feel that there is a lot of misinformation online about what to eat to promote healthy digestion.  i always hear veggies, whole grains, foods rich in fiber.  (but this is if you have a relatively healthy digestion before hand)  the last thing you want to do in a serious bout of ibs is to start eating all the fiber you can find.  (in fact i continually make this mistake, which is my reason for blogging about it, force myself to remember for the future.)

anyway, i am torn from wanting to eat healthy, and wanting to end my ibs.  so i am going to try to not stress and i will go to henrys and get the following things.

peppermint tea
greek yogurt
sweet potatoes
apple sauce
white bread
white rice
acidopholus (supplements)

wish me luck on midterms, and with the digestive stuff.

Water World

werid ass dream last night

i was a vistitor on a strange planet, that worshipped water and used it for everything.  and yet water was scarse, and used for many different things.

the dream starts,

i am driving in a car around a scenic road through a red, rocky environment (a lot like the 40 min rocky area of arizona that you drive through to get to las vegas from san diego)  anyway i was in the backseat with a citizen of this rock planet and front seats were my twin sisters.  we were asking about the planet.

next, twins are gone, just me and this girl who lives here.  she tells me about her brother who was captured and put in prison for a crime he didn't commit.  she enlists my help to break him out of prison, since i can not get in trouble, because the laws of this planet do not apply to me.  (weird justice system, i know)

we walk up to the strangest prison i have ever seen.  guards have water guns (little ones, not those bad ass super soakers), so we go up to the prison in the sky and we sit in seats of what looks like a hangy rollarcoaster (you know when your feet are dangling.)

the girl is gone and i am siting next to her brother, above a river, and he pulls off his harness and drops into the river.  confused i do the same, we climb out of the river, and start runnning, a gaurd stops him and shots him in the face with a water gun, but i grap the gun and shoot the gaurd in the face, i grap the brother and we get away.

now we are at his folks house, and they have a small pool in the house.  everything is white or blue, and in deep contrast to the desert background we have been running from.  water is sacred i find out here, and it can be used to heal and debilitate (ie the guns).  anyway.  breif family reunion in the pool, and then the police show up.  (the brother hides in some special water) i dont know, it was bluer water and he disappeared into it.

the police grill me for helping a prisoner escape, i told them i didn't know what would happen, and reminded them that i am outside their jurisdiction and so they left.

i woke up.

weird right!
