writing this post instead of studying for my midterm

March 25, 2011

I have done the practice tests and resigned myself to my fate.

Recently I decided not to go to grad school – at least, not right away: not until I had figured out what it was I “really” want to do. Then I had the rug ripped out from under me, and in that brief moment of clarity before hitting the floor, I realized that Brown University had accepted my application and it made absolutely no sense not to go.

I have only a handful of weeks left at Smith and the days are running through my fingers like water.

What to do with the time I have left?

Panic about my thesis, work on it, panic some more.

Make up work (like this midterm) that I missed in the week before break.

Watch old episodes of Criminal Minds.

Hide in my own house, because I’ve managed to alienate 99% of the students who live there.

Listen to music.

Leave everything (that doesn’t cling of its own volition) by the wayside.

Dream that somewhere, flowers are coming out of the ground and blooming.

    Hello! I don’t know about flowers — but birds are returning and singing like they mean it — Luv ya, Me
