So I'm writing this at 11:37 p.m. on a Wednesday night and Y'ALL: school. It's started again. Like, we're in the swing of things now.
I'm taking four classes: a news editing and design class, a photojournalism class, an investigative reporting class, and a class on American women writers. I'm also working about 20 hours a week. I'm also buried neck-deep in homework and GAH HALP CAN'T FIGHT MY WAY OOOOUUUUTTT!!!
I'm also averaging 4 hours of sleep per night. Last night I got 3 hours and 45 minutes of sleep. Is fun. Wheeeee!
Here's the thing, though: I haven't hit the exhaustion wall. No, really. I have SO much energy...it's kind of ridiculous.
I'm waiting, though. I know when I least expect it, WHAMMO! FATIGUE! And I'll keel over and start snoring and drooling on the floor of the subway system and then the cops will arrest me because they think I'm drunk and I'll have to beg my way out of a night in the slammer with my puppy dog eyes and fabulous cleavage.
[Er...somethingsomething. Maybe I'm more tired than I thought. Maybe I shouldn't be writing blog posts this late. OR DOING HOMEWORK. But whatevs. It'll be fine. I'm sure. How do you spell "journalism" again?]
But for now, I am woman, hear me Not Yawn! I'm up til 1:30 or 2 (or 2:30...) doing homework, my alarm goes off at 6, I chug massive amounts of coffee (huh. Maybe that's the reason for the lack of exhaustion) and I am good. to. GO, y'all.
[Also: do you know what is delicious and not at all giving me a sugar high right now? CANDY.]
One of the things on my massively long to-do list is to do a proper update on my new apartment. (Hint: we still have mice. And OH HOLY SHIZZNIT THAT HAD BETTER NOT BE A FRUIT FLY.) So that is coming. In the meantime, here's my bedside table!
One of the other things on my massively long to-do list is sleep. (Hint: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA LIKE THAT'LL EVER HAPPEN.) I crack myself up.
