Mom’s vertigo is definitely back -and with a vengeance. Now it’s no longer posterior but horizontal (no, I have no idea what it means but it’s super icky) and she has been wicked sick all day. It’s awful, I feel pretty much helpless.
After a summer-long hiatus, the bestie is BACK – in black (well, ginger, really) I love this girl and it doesn’t matter that summer is almost over and my Knight is halfway around the world because she is BACK. On a related note, the other bestie leaves in like three days and I’m beside myself with panic and undecided angst :(
On another note, I got my MacBook back!!! And then I realized that the fools who replaced my harddrive managed to somehow disable my optical drive. Fantastic. Back to the Apple Store I go, grumbling all the way…
It was a beautiful 88 today; and I enjoyed it for all of five minutes as I ran between final exams. Up til three working on a take home final, after not sleeping the night before, turned it in at 11 and had to stick around for a half hour long required lecture (even though we’ve taken our exam and turned in our paper), then ran off to my second final (Africa) which was mostly fine, except I had to run to the disability office halfway through, and had to write the essay in 15 minutes (I should have had 45 minutes) but I had to leave at 2:10 to literally run back across campus to the room next door to Africa and was still five minutes late. I was exhausted, stressed, nauseous and I pretty much collapsed in the chair and starting sobbing. It was undignified and awful. BUT I’M DONE. I’M BLOODY DONE.
Except, oh wait, I still get to go to two classes on Friday, you know, just for the hell of it. This is ridiculous.
Apparently I am the least responsible person, ever. Second Monday night in a row without sleep; got home at 9:30 this morning. I won’t bore you with the details of my evening but I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. I am exhausted, totally brain dead, and confused as hell. I have to write my take home exam (4-5 pages on ‘What is Zen Art?’ – what kind of broad bullshit is that?), and study for my African Art final and my Target Practice final. I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes uncrossed, I can’t even deal with everything else right now. Will process the past 24 hours… later.
I just have to say, I love living here – being less than ten minutes away from a dozen beautiful lakeside beaches is just unbeatable. I can’t believe summer is almost over…
First final exam tomorrow – Buddhist Art in Japan (607-Present)
Rainbow season is slowing coming to an end… the sun is setting closer to 8 pm, it’s been hovering in the 60s all week and I have a sinking feeling that I’ll need to break out the cable knit sweaters pretty soon… sigh.
