I promise I like good TV shows too!

I have the habit of, what I like to call, watching the shit out of a TV show on Netflix.  Someone asked me once "how *do* you watch the shit out of something?"  Here is my answer:  it's when you watch several seasons in a ridiculously short amount of time.  I watched Parks and Rec in about one week.  I also watched the United States of Tara in about two weeks.  Right now I'm watching the shit out of Greek.  


It's not necessarily a good show but it's not necessarily bad either.  And I can't stop watching it.  It's an ABC Family show; so I feel like that kinda says it all.  It's off the air now, but did any one else watch it?  What is it about this show that is so addicting??

There a bunch of other shows that are on Netflix right now that I really want to start watching.  But for some reason I can't watch nine episodes in a row like I can Greek.  And yes, last night I watched nine (!!) episodes of Greek.  But in my defense, I have really long weeks now and by time Friday gets here all I wanna do is put on sweats and veg.

Why hello, Fall!

I love Autumn!  I mean, I really like the summer:  pool days, suntans, drinking on patios, not having to wear a coat, blah blah blah.  

But I love cool nights.  I love dark nail polish.  I love cozy sweaters and skinny jeans with boots. I love the crisp smell of the leaves.  I love the leaves in general.  Too bad if you live somewhere that doesn't get to see the leaves change.  I love pumpkin coffee (I mean who doesn't?).  I love my Mom's apple pie.  I love Halloween.  

But right now it's that weird time of year when it's still kinda nice and summery, but it's September, so in my mind, it's totally fall.  What's a girl to do??  

Fall also means my fall semester started.  I'm only taking one class.  But it happens to be Psychopharmacological Intervention.  Yikes!  My internship hours also jumped up to twenty hours a week.  

I'd like to leave you with this lovely tidbit:  Tyrosine enters dopaminergic neurons by diffusion, where the cytoplasmic enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase converts it to L-DOPA.  L-DOPA is then converted by DOPA decarboxylase into dopamine.

What's gotten into me!?

On Saturday, I ran ANOTHER 5K!!!  It was called the Color Vibe.  It's similar to the Color Race. Warrior Dash on August 11 and Color Vibe on September 1; what has happened to me???  I'm still a lover of my couch.  For instance, today I'm taking a mental health and plan on watching a lot of TV and movies.  But when a race is fun and different, I want to do it.  There's a race called Run for Your Lives that I want to do so bad, but it's nowhere near me.  And I don't really have time to travel this year for races.  

Like I said, what has gotten into me?!?!
