Some (grad)school night funnies.....

So since it is a grad school weekend and my brain hurts i thought i would share some honest but cute funnies about what i do at work and what i am continueing my education to go drown in a textbook for a bit longer....

sometimes i can't help but test the gold fish or m&m's

I wonder what the function of writting this post on a school night is?

..oh right probably "escape"...

...from this... and yes i have to talk and read like this now with my peers and co-workers. Good times...

I'm off to finish this weekend full of textbooks, notes and starbucks!

speaking of starbucks dont forget to enter in this weeks giveaway!!!
