calculate the enthalpy

Completely unrelated to this post: A wild Pancake observes the Canadian autumn breeze.

Despite its chemistry connotations, the title is actually a reference to that Grimes and Bleachers song. It’s one of my happy-ing traxxx. (The actual song is called Entropy, and you can listen to it below:)

Almost two months into uni and I think I can finally give an accurate assessment of the whole sitch. Some Real Observations From a Real and Sometimes-Flummoxed University Student:

  1. Study smart, yo. Not necessarily harder or longer, but smarter. This is a skill I’ve defs gotta nail in the upcoming weeks before finals rear their ugly visages before my shocked and unprepared figure.
  2. Pack food. You will get hungry/get the munchies studying and it will suck to find yourself stuck without a lunch on a campus full o’ overpriced dishes from the Mystery Food Group. I’m currently living off of lentil soup (of course), yakitori fried rice (heavenly), bananas, raspberries, and those little SnacKit tuna-and-rice-cracker packages you can buy in bulk from Costco. It’s more satisfying than you might think.
  3. Get enough sleep. It’s hard and it won’t happen every night, but try to get at least enough z’s to guarantee you fall asleep during lecture/lab/catch stuff on fire in said lab/etc etc etc.

I’ll add more tips as I think of them in future posts, but for now I’m going to 1) do some exercise and 2) hit the hay. Why? Because sleep. Sleep is why. Zzzzz.
