Time doesn’t wait for me, it keeps on rollin’
September 27, 2010

It’s been an awfully long time since I’ve posted on my own damn blog. It’s not that I don’t like writing, or that I don’t always have something to say. It’s that, well, life is kicking my ass right now. I don’t sleep more than five hours a night, I’m constantly doing work or procrastinating on something I should be doing, and I’ve been leaving most of my hobbies in the dust.

For those of you who aren’t aware, this is my last year as an undergraduate and everything is coming down to the wire. I’m finishing my major this semester, applying to graduate school, and still working hard as an RA. I have no less than three problem sets due on any given week, along with lab reports, night duty, programming expectations, and whatever else my job and school decide to throw at me.

I just want a chance to breathe.

I’ve gone from listening to high-octane dance music and alternative rock to enjoying soft, slow indie sounds, complete with piano accompaniment. Sleeping at four in the morning isn’t that abnormal this semester, and I’ve grown used to preparing my school bag and clothes the night before because there is no other way I’ll make it to class on time. Even that doesn’t happen every day.

Sure, I’ve been doing some other things. I watched an episode of Doctor Who the other night, and went into San Francisco on Sunday. I took a practice GRE last week. I went to the first football game of the season. But each and every one of those things has made another day just a bit more difficult because I’m a little behind.

I haven’t been able to start my painting of the Golden Gate Bridge, or learn the piano accompaniment for my latest favourite song, “The Freshman” (cover by Jay Brannan). I cleaned my room last week, but it’s back to it’s usual disasterous condition. My scrapbook is still missing anything from the last year or two.

So, I hope I can be back here a little more often. It’s going to take some serious planning on my part not to forget about some of the fun things that keep me sane. Luckily, I haven’t stopped reading. I’m currently finishing up Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, and it’s fantastic. That and the naps are really keeping me alive right now.
