Note to self:

Do not fall asleep on the couch while Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is on in the background unless you'd like to have terrifying nightmares about psychologically deranged children who kill people with safety pins.

I'm going back to bed. There is a thunderstorm outside. Between that and the fact that I'm awake right now, the second day of "wake up really early and go running" may be a rainout. Oh darn. Goodnight.

The view from the couch

Julie, John and I were sitting on the couches in Muddy Waters earlier (I'm still here, they left) when we began to notice a man sitting nearby look up to watch us every few minutes while drawing in a sketch pad . . . turns out he was drawing Julie and I as anime characters. He didn't show us the work in progress; instead, Julie walked behind him to check while getting coffee. After a few hours of drawing, he just got up and left. I regret not getting to see myself in cartoon form. Sigh.

I'm still sitting in the same spot as I was when I got here at ten o'clock, but now my professor for Irish literature is sitting on a chair across from me reading term papers. I don't want to look up, but I really want to know if he's reading the one I turned in this morning. The suspense is killing me.

Alright. Back to work. I'm wrapping up the third of five two-page essays on economic inequality for tomorrow. When I finish the fourth, I get another coffee break. Type, type, type. Good thing this couch is comfortable.

Things I have recently learned

  • Leaving my computer next to an open window and leaving for several hours when there is even a slight chance of rain in the forecast is a terrible idea
  • Sneakers are the most sensible type of footwear to wear to a folk punk concert (and RecSpecs are the most sensible type of eyewear)
  • Regardless of what sort of personal deadlines I set for myself, I cannot summon peak productivity until real deadlines are fast approaching
  • Size stickers are to be left on Fitted caps
  • While going out on a limb to take a class outside my major may sound like a good idea during registration, sitting through the class all semester is not worth broadening my horizons
. . . to be continued.
