Ginger-haired genius CO'C is a long-time pal of mine who is currently a first-year med student at Northwestern University. If someone should blog, it's this chick. Her [condensed] posts would go something like this:
December 15th: Huge anatomy final tomorrow. I'm going on a pub crawl through Chi town to prepare.
December 16th: Went for a run along the pier before my final. Such a beautiful sunrise. I LOVE LIFE!
December 17th: Just read and replied to 150 e-mails. I love gchat and checking everything off my to do list. I LOVE LIFE!
December 18th: Just bought tickets to see some random indie band that no one's ever heard of at a venue that no one's ever heard of in celebration of the A+ I just got on the anatomy test I didn't study for.
December 17th (one year later): That random indie band that no one's ever heard of and that random venue that no one's ever heard of are now all the rage! The band is even performing at my "I Cured AIDS Party!" I LOVE LIFE!
Despite jokes that the girl is a machine, I think what keeps her going is her eternal optimism. This Christmas season, I urge you to all embrace the CO'C way. I have no doubts that the aforementioned celebration of a cure for AIDS will certainly involve my favorite ginger's intelligence. Here's a little snippet from a quick chat we had today:
CO'C: test in 15 hours. am i currently: (a) studying diligently; (b) aimlessly surfing the internet; (c) christmas shopping; or (d) drinking?
KR: d. duh.
CO'C: haha b, c, AND d actually
CO'C: though im late for the d
