A stop in a whirlwind

I am going to be very productive tonight. I have resolved against sleeping and eating anything that has enzymes associated to turkey, which makes one sleepy.

I am embarking upon a week of papers, articles and a bunch of other work that I have been slowly chipping away at this entire weekend. Well, except for Saturday night, but a woman needs to get a life every now and then.

My planner stares at me from its hiding place inside my ever-budgeoning bag and screams, "WORK, I don't care if it is Sunday."

I am taking comfort in the fact that Setonian production begins this week, and it does not conclude until after break.

I will be in Connecticut over break doing a project with Habitat for Humanity. I will be sure to take my camera and turn this blog into a regular gallery when I return.

As for Habitat, I am in a group with a cook. So when we have to make dinner, which we have already planned out--stuffed shells with pudding parfaits for dessert (my addition)--I will be okay. Hopefully. I suggested ramen in the meeting for dinner, and everyone laughed. I was mostly serious.

But now I must leave this SHU domain and go home. I was just waiting on my lengthy PDF scholarly articles to print, and now they have.

Mid-term death is only the beginning.

I know the saying goes "Just Say No," but it shouldn't apply to sleep (I can't believe I'm admitting that...).

I actually got to sleep before you, Chris. 2:12 A.M.? What are we going to do with you?

I'm going back to CT too, but not for the same reasons. Now if Cindy Boland had picked another state, rest assured I'd be bangin' away at those nails and hardwood, or stirring myself happy with the soup ladle. Sadly, Hartford is only 20 minutes away from where I live, and I don't consider it as "going away" from anywhere! I'm giving up sleep this week too -- I'd like a life of my own someday...you know, the one without college, school, papers. I wonder what it feels like to graduate?

You can get a life in college, too. I never would have thought it, but sometimes things--wonderful things--happen. Pieces of your life just find their place in the most unexpected ways.

*sniffle* Amanda, that was truly well said, for i have met some of the best people i know here, and i would give nothing back that has happened, good or bad.

I'm going to have to start knocking myself out with a mallet or something...

Seriously, today has been such a heartwarming day all the way around. Even Irol said something semi-nice.

Oh no, i have invaded Amandas blog too, but only because i am keeping track of my favorite blockhead. Blockhead...er..i mean, Chris, may i please knock you out with the mallet? It would be much less painful if i did it than if you did it yourself....it would be over quicker too, i promise....and plus, it would make my blockhead destroying job soo much easier...:)

Hey, we are going to have a blast in CT!!! I never really get to see you anymore, so this will be some much-needed "catch-up" time for Chiz Whiz Mix, if ya know what I mean.

I send you all my best wishes for this week (as long as you'll do the same for me!). It's becoming a bit pressing, what with assignments and activities cropping up. I'm most nearly swimming in a plethora of projects... I know I'll live, but a little reassurance never hurt, huh? :-) Just pray for the best, I suppose.
