Cue obligatory LJ update:
Let's see. So Thanksgiving was very odd this year, probably because nothing feels right in life at the moment. I just feel all out of place, like I'm just kind of floating through everything. I haven't had time to spend with anyone or doing anything, when I've got so many things that I'd like to be doing.
I did manage to get my English paper done and turned in on time (relatively). I actually checked out books from the library and for the first time in my collegiate career it felt like I was really writing a paper, not just sitting down and spitting out crap.
So now I've got a poetry project for my other English class, and a bunch of logs to do for Psych of Women. I've got two more weeks of work to get through while still maintaining some time for myself, and there are a ton of things I'd like to do, but don't have time for. Oh, and finals.
My possessed microwave just beeped at me for no apparent reason. Oh, and evidently we have a five inch rat lurking around in some crawl space area behind our dishwasher. I'd like to spend some time in the photo lab, but I'm not sure if I'll get to before the semester's up.
I've decided to apply to Sweet Eugene's again, and also to Coffee Station. I desperately want to work at a coffee shop next semester. Speaking of next semester, I need to figure out what independent/directed study I'm going to be taking.
I recently discovered The Beautiful Mistake
, and I must say I'm digging their music a lot. That and the awesome versions of Christmas songs that I've been downloading, including "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
by My Chemical Romance. In literature, I just finished up reading The Catcher In The Rye
by J.D. Salinger, and I loved it. It really resonated with me. This is where I segue into my future plans for reviewing books, movies, and music. I'm planning a major overhaul for my website, including a new layout, and I'd like to add a lot of content. I think it'd be a pretty nifty way to keep track of the things that I read, watch, and listen to, and also if anybody was curious about it, they could look it up. Of course, this is something that's going to have to wait until I have some time over Christmas break.
Well, there you have it. That's pretty much the rundown of what's going on in my crazy life right now. Maybe if you see me around you can either (a) stop me and get me to pause and breathe or (b) cheer me up in some fashion. Having this much stuff to do on my plate is kind of a drag.
