One benefit so far to being on pain medication and having to take the train? Having an extra 90 minutes a day to get some studying in. B/c I sure as shit didn't do any over Thanksgiving, and tonite's mid-term really snuck up on me.
And that is the only benefit. B/c not being able to drink and barely being able to sleep is starting to wear pretty fucking thin.
Current beer-scale: 8.9 but who cares, b/c I'm still taking vicodin.
