Genetics with a side of cinnamon buns

Lately, even though we've had far fewer lectures than normal, all I seem to be doing is stare at my computer, clicking just about all the videos I can find on how DNA works. As I’m typing this I have another Word doc open with the task sheet that’s due this Tuesday, and just looking at it is making my head spin. I keep saying this, but I severely underestimated the amount of studying vet school would demand. I don’t even know how I’m supposed to remember all this, but I’m putting off worrying about that until exam season starts.

As you can probably tell, this week didn’t make for the most interesting blog post, so instead, here’s some of the things I do to make a study session super cosy:

1. Light scented candles

2. Put on my microwaveable slippers – yes, this is a real thing

3. Wrap myself in about 5 blankets

4. Make a cup of tea – (or 12)

5. Put on music – my search history is pretty much all “lovely French café music for studying”

6. Wear pyjamas

I’m pretty sure if you combine all of these, you’d slip into a coma, so apply with caution! I’ve also baked up a storm lately, so I’ve been rewarding myself with homemade cinnamon buns and gingerbread cookies! This is starting to sound like one of my other favourite blogs, hello hygge, so I’m going to end thing’s here and go back to studying. However, if you’re in the mood to read even more blog posts like this one, I highly recommend clicking the link to visit hellohygge.com here. It’s a blog on the Scandinavian “hygge”-culture, so perhaps it’ll give you some ideas for how to spend your cosy Sunday evening. (If I’m being completely honest I’ll probably call it a night pretty soon and just go read a book and eat even more cinnamon buns!)
