Today is going to be a long day.
See, when I was in school, the grad kind, I got very little sleep. I’d get up around 8, get ready, grab my stuff, go to class, and then I’d do one of three things: more class, my part-time job, or go home and do homework. And then after that I’d go home and do homework until 2 or 3 in the morning, at which point I’d go to sleep.
Rinse, lather, repeat.
Thankfully, I haven’t had to do that in quite some time. I worried while in school that it was going to be a never-ending thing until one day the stress caused my heart (or brain or eyeballs) to explode, but it all ended with graduation and now, unless I’m a giant moron and take on more than I can handle, things are pretty okay.
I was a giant moron this weekend.
On my to-do list was designing some wedding invitations, making bookbinding kits for a class I’m teaching this upcoming weekend and doing laundry. I got the designing done and some of the bookbinding kits, but no laundry. If I’d been a boring, dull, intelligent person, I would have stayed home all weekend and gotten that done on time. But the weather was nice and there was a gigantic party at the Jungle and so I put on my best club gear and went dancing with Jennie and Obby, and it was awesome (I am so sore today). And then yesterday I slept until 1, which I haven’t done since college, and worked on stuff, and then went to Momocon to help Jennie pack up her booth, and went to dinner, and so I didn’t get started on things until 9:30. (As an aside, my max time limit for Momocon is approximately 2 hours. I am not that age any longer.)
And so 3:30 this morning saw me still awake, but headed for bed. 7:30 was a rough hour. I was not at all awake. I still might not be awake.
In closing, I have discovered that two monitors means I can watch the Highlander on Netflix and work on my computer at the same time, and if you can’t get the AT&T voice menu to understand you, speaking in a cheesy southern accent solves the problem neatly. Apparently Georgia Power actually instructs you to do this if the voice recognition software can’t understand you.
