Nothing Much

I don't really have anything to say, except I missed blogging so much that I had to say something. While clacking away at the keys over the weekend, I thought, "I wonder what everyone is saying on NMJ right now?" So, forgive me, I went to the site and read over everything, and I even went on my pals blogs. I HAVE A PROBLEM.

I hate to blog when I am like this; my mind is so caught up in what I am doing.

Today on my way to school, however, I made an effort to see something new--I noticed the lines of people's wash drying in the warm wind and the nursery by my old house watering saplings with a big firefighter-looking hose that made rainbows in the spray.

Good news. I handed in my research paper on single mothers and fathers for my STW class (the one where I had hand-to-hand combat with EBSCO Host). What a weight off my shoulders!!!! It's in Dr. Jerz's hands now.
I spent so much time thinking and agonizing over what I wanted to say, how I was going to present it, writing it, editing, and revising, that I can't believe that I have finished. I am in withdrawal. I can't imagine what I am going to be like with a 25 or 50 page paper. I am going to need rehab.

Never fear, boredom is not going to be my companion; more appropriately, chaos will be my mate. School will be the theme of my blog--if I get time, in the next two weeks, but the summer is drawing nigh. Dear readers, please forgive. Nothing interesting, I know. Just an blog-crazed overachiever's lament.

You can use the Setonian to rehab ...

I know how you feel, I'm always on the NMJ site or our classmates sites to see what everyone else has to say and what they are up to. I think I need a life ;)

I don't know what to say. Either I can spend the rest of the day laughing to myself or I can take solace in the fact that I'm not alone. There is one consensus though - our teachers' are evil.

I saw FIREFIGHTER and this entry caught my attention. I love summer, sun, warmness.... but I do not like being stuck in school for 2 in a half hour classes with no windows in it. I missed you on blogging to... I am in the same boat as you, I don't have time to blog and in this state of mind, I AM GOING NUTS!

Nuts? Been there, done that. I've moved on to stages of insanity, thank you very much. :^)

You're normal, Amanda. Well, a normal "bloginator," anyway ;^) Love ya, dearest.

And I love you too.

When in doubt I recite my favorite inspirational lines:
"I think I can, I think I can, I think I can."--from the illustrious text: The Little Engine That Could, first edition.

Maybe we could be subjects in peer-reviewed study or something. "Bloggers and stress levels: patterns in writing style, pre- and post end of the semester, an empirical analysis". I think I might actually want to read that source.

Amanda, are you planning on taking a psychology class to fulfill a requirement in an upcoming semester? Sounds like a great idea. I'd be more than happy to help you with it.

First things first, of course: survival!

I meant it in a completely sarcastic way, but now that I think about it, it would be pretty cool to see the differences. That is, if we had enough people blogging during that time.

Oh Amanda, my dear, you'll never learn! :^) You brighten even my darkest days, dearie--thanks for the random acts of blogging!!!

He was being sarcastic too, wasn't he? whoops.
