Just barely Random Wednesday!Randomness
(Just barely still Wednesday, I mean. Very random.)
Oh, hi! You're still here! Yay! Thank you for those of you who have e-mailed or otherwise asked if I'm okay. I am. It's mostly just beginning-of-semester busyness combined with something of a knitting slump plus a lack of sleep that's making anything at all creative seem way too much work. But. Here I am! Just in time for randomness!
I know I've been going on and on about how I want it to be autumn, but sheesh, that happened quickly. A week ago today I noticed that the leaves were turning. (I meant to blog about it at the time, but apparently that didn't happen.) A few days ago, my apartment was 54 degrees when I woke up. This afternoon when I left my office, I swear it smelt like snow. Now, even I am not delusional enough to expect snow in mid-September, but it was still exciting. And tonight I got home to find that the L.L. Bean Christmas catalog had arrived.
I'm loving my class this semester. Great subject - organization of information - and awesome professor. It's a lot of work, though, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed already. I'm keeping up with the schoolwork, but my housekeeping routines have almost totally disappeared in the week since school started, and that's really frustrating. I'm trying to keep up with social commitments, and... something's got to give, I guess.
There are also suddenly a whole bunch (well, if about 2.5 counts as a bunch) of cute boys around making my life complicated. Or at least taking up a lot of mental energy. Odd.
Extreme Veronica Mars addiction continues. I now own both seasons on DVD (found at really good prices, I must say) as well as the soundtrack, which is addictive in and of itself. I think I've seen about through disc one of season two so far. My adorable new cell phone Pluto has a Veronica Mars wallpaper and ringtone. Yeah. I've become one of those people. I'm sorry.
And as evidenced by the fact that it is now 12:20, I am finding it impossible to get to bed before midnight recently. And if I do get to bed, I can't sleep. Bah. Must restart yoga routine. Yeah, now to find the time...
Oh, I haven't forgotten about the SRP, by the way. It's just... lots of data. Look for the final results on Sunday.
And Princess Aaralyn, of boring baby blanket fame, is now walking! Awww. I miss her.
Knitting? What knitting? Well, there's been a little. Haven't finished anything, though. Considering taking a break from the WIPs and doing fingerless mitts of some sort this weekend. Hmmm.
Okay, I should be attempting sleep, so to sum up: I am here, just busy, and a bit scattered and stressed, but what else is new? In general, I think I'm doing better than I have been in... quite a while, actually. So. Random enough for ya?Posted by Kat at September 13, 2006 11:24 PM
