Where my darling best friend collapsed, cried half the week threatening to work herself into a permanent panic attack or over the nearest bridge, my sister got sick and subsequently cranky and whined for me to coddle her all week and got her first serious collapse form overwork (she stayed put so long I'm mighty proud), I got sick, I discovered I'm all of 5 days too old to apply for the scholarship to Japan I wanted after I went all the way to the embassy and found out that, besides that, I'm pretty much the perfect candidate, Yanira consistently did nothing in the Lab and managed to screwed up the small part of the experiment we were counting on her to do, again, and cashed her Lab check as she's the only one that's actually getting paid to take care of the goddamn cells, we discovered contamination on all of our plaques of cells and as hard as we tried, we just had to sacrifice them, and I had a test today after I got in a grand total of seven hours of study.
I've been running on coffee, adrenaline and half the sleep I need for the last five days, and I have to do some more work before I can rest. But a beautifully long weekend is ahead, and all the crisis were avoided. Darling friend, who also happens to be the roommate, after an extensive fight with her mother that left her feeling like crap for several days, finally pulled out of the career and is now smiling for the first time in a long while. She left today for her parents house, when her mother saw reason after someone helpfully pointed out to her it's better to have a daughter-that-could-have-been-an-architect-but-isn't that no-daugther-at-all. She pulled out of college, and I'm now rommateless and Karenless for the first time in two years, and that is a very weird thing.
Overall, tings turned out fine. Not peachy, but... well, sister has done nothing but sleep and eat for the last three days and is now ready to face the last month and a half of classes, Friend is not suicidal or passing out for being unable to cope anymore, I'm not seeing Yanira till' Tuesday, Katty-the-Lab-Guru offered up some of her clean cells so we could reestablish our culture line and I got a passing grade on the test, I think, and if I didn't, there's nothing to be done about it anymore but study more next time.
So, this weekend, there shall be nothing but naked man sports for me *sighs and relaxes*
