Ok, this has nothing to do with breakfast. I just couldn’t get those cereal commercials out of my head, and when I thought of “Now with slightly less emo bitching” it made me laugh.
Where was I?
Oh. Right. Hadn’t even really started yet. 😉
Somebody said I looked tired the other day (someone close enough to say that without getting punched in the face, that is), and I said, “Yeah, I’m just hanging in there until . . . ” and then I started to say October, because my LSATs will be over. But then I realized that in October I’ll be running around like crazy putting together a convention for work, soI thought November. But then I realized that in November I have both jury duty AND Thanksgiving. So December. But that’s Christmas (we’re big Christmas people – it might be secular in our house, but it lasts WAY LONGER than a day). January? The whole family is going to Disney World. (“You just finished Christmas! What are you going to do next?” “We’re going to – ” Oh, never mind. You know where I’m going.) Soooo . . . February. I’m holding on for February.
When I finally finished my sentence with “February,” I realized that I wasn’t sure if I felt MORE stressed or LESS stressed. On the one hand, holy crap! I have months of intense work coming up! On the other hand, at least I feel better about feeling stressed. It’s not like I’m stressing over NOTHING, you know? I’m just sayin’.
In other news, my law school entrance exams are A WEEK FROM SATURDAY. ONE. WEEK. PEOPLE. I’m kind of starting to get a little bit freaked out, maybe kind of sort of. Just a little. Plus I had forgotten how much freakin’ MONEY it costs to apply to grad schools. Jay-sus. I looked at my bank account and realized that all the money goes in, all the money goes out, and only the names are changed to protect the not so innocent. Yikes. Thank God for loans. I’m going to need them.
And! I almost forgot! I went to the gym this morning and ran until I almost puked! (No, really. It was a GOOD kind of almost-puking. IT WAS!) On the plus side, I was WAY less stressed. On the minus side, it was kind of hard to stay awake at work today because my body was so tapped out. But since I wasn’t anxious all day, I’ll take tired. I can adjust to that.
But since I’m tired, now I’m off to bed! (I KNOW. Decadent, right? It’s like 8:30, and my bed awaits with a book and some tea. I didn’t even study LSATs tonight. I TOOK THE NIGHT OFF. (Mostly because I’m too tired to think straight so I was just biffing the questions, but I’m going to pretend I’m doing it for my well-being.) Damn. I hate when I put parentheses in parentheses. It’s just bad form. OH, WELL.)
