It has been another one of those crazy weeks for me. Last night we were supposed to head down to Seattle, Washington for a Criminology gathering but that got cancelled just minutes before I was leaving out the door. Good thing too because when unpacked and went to sleep, I was out almost instantly–probably before my head hit the pillow. When I finally got up this morning, my body felt like it had been hit with a thousand bean-bags and every bone seemed to ached as I got up.
I realized that I have been going non-stop for the last five days. The pressure of getting assignments done, getting to classes and the hot weather, it all has taken its toll on me. If I were the tin-man from the Wizard of Oz, I would have had my warranty voided as I squeaked and groaned with every joint seizing up from over use. Maybe it is another sign, something to do with getting older?
I have a little bit of a break before the grand finale–called the exams. I want to use this time get some mental house cleaning done. I have not even had time to sit down and start to think about next semester yet. That will become a pressing issue because I think I have a scheduling conflict between my job and one of my classes. Now that I realized that in the upper level courses there is no such thing as a “light” course anymore, I am to assume that the next semester will be HELL also with mountains of work. I can see the end–thank goodness.
Oh look–it’s raining out side. Notice when one gets some time to enjoy Mother Nature inadvertently punishes? Though the rain is nice after such a long dry period, I hope it stays at a minimum. I kind a want to get out and walk around a bit.
Its good to have a day of nothing to do.
