| ||Eventually I hit that place of tiredness where, like it or not, going through the motions or not, work stops; tonight, that's now, so I'm here with a mug of peppermint tea and a great desire to go lie down and close my eyes. Relaxing, breathing, trying to let go of the big, urgent things on my to-do list -- been plugging away at it all day, basically, other than my workout and the couple hours of philosophers' group (at which we intersected the topic of my term paper, so even then I was working a little) -- I've got a Thursday deadline creeping up... and see, those thoughts of all the junk I've got to do just want to return. The mind's got so much momentum in that direction, it doesn't want to stop the gears from turning so it seems productive. Grad school is keeping me extra-busy. |
Even at this point in my life, it felt good to see that "A+" marked on my paper. Today, I celebrated getting a perfect score on my midterm exam by stopping by a little boutique cookie shop close to the university campus on my way home and picking up a few cookies, plus one for my best bud; I'd never been to the shop before, but last summer my friend and I went every week to a local farmers' market, where we treated ourselves a couple times to these cookies. In the cracks between actively working, I found myself thinking a lot about friendship and relationship today.
Well, damn, I just got a text with some bad news from a friend of mine I'm concerned about; she's tough and she'll be okay, but I know things are hard for her now. Another breath -- this one with a little sharpness.
My fella sang a song today to kick off the philosophers' group meeting. I'm impressed by how good he's gotten at the piano.
Well, my tea is finished, I think I've calmed my mind a bit, and I'm good and sleepy, so goodnight, Xanga neighbors.
