I woke up today with the idea of 3 exams in the next 24 hours hanging all over me (starting 12pm tomorrow until Saturday afternoon I will be a mess of memorization).

Moment 4 life

Wednesday. 11 days.  Nicki Minaj’s song is my theme today. I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life.
