Just woke up to find myself on the couch from a ~2-hour ‘nap’. This is on the whole a familiar situation with just a few variations, those being that: I’m not in my apartment, I haven’t missed a class/exam, and it’s still hour(s) before sunrise as opposed to hours after it. I’m pretty sure my sleep schedule is either non-existent or mostly nocturnal, seeing as how my body’s felt more tired than usual these last two days…I’m guessing my body hasn’t been sure how to react to these rather ridiculous hours, so it’s been compensating by letting me stay awake for a few days and then hitting me with an unblockable SLEEP NOW command, as happened yesterday and today.
Finals and associated studying have been interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever pulled so many all-nighters studying (I might not have ever attempted to do so much consecutive studying, but that’s another story)–thinking about it now I assume the aforementioned all-nighters left fatigue that’s added up til the last few days of unavoidable napping. We (mostly me and Nancy, occasionally some others) been studying all over the place: ARC computer labs throughout the days they were open 24-hrs, the AALC from Friday night to Saturday morning, BCC, Richardson…I don’t remember where else right now. Nancy just found out SERC reading room is apparently open 24-hrs so she’s there now (I was KO’d on couch and didn’t realize this) working on genetics.
All the studying over the past few weeks feels a bit to me like a completely different part of the semester, the separation point being after our final dance performances of the semester. Not having weekly dance practices almost every other day feels really weird…haha I miss dancing and other Verse|One company. I want finals to be done so that Nancy and I can work on putting together an end-of-semester/year montage. I don’t remember what it felt like last semester after our performances were finished, but Verse|One wasn’t nearly as close then. There’s much more to be said on that subject but it’ll wait for a different post until after finals are finished.
I also feel like it’s been quite a while since my last WordPress post of any considerable length…I miss this too. Not that there hasn’t been anything to write about–there’s been so much I’ve wanted to write about–more like over the last few weeks, I haven’t managed to find/make chunks of time to just tap out some thoughts coherently. It’s quite possible that some more entries–content varying–will soon be finding their way to a blog near you.
Grrrrr finals…on the home stretch: four down and two to go or something like that. Tonight’s some kind of essay-ish final for Psychology in Politics at 8pm, and I have a take-home essay due by 3pm Wednesday for Western Tradition: Hobbes to Mill. Nancy’s still got 3 exams left…genetics in ~2hrs, and adolescent development and stats tomorrow D:
In other news, I’m temporarily reachable now that I’ve re-obtained my old RAZR (needs new battery…maybe new phone –“); I’ve lost my driver’s license two days ago, no idea where it could be (this is annoying for a lot of reasons); my trusty camera’s marginally usable but can’t zoom (I want a new cameraaaa); I haven’t played badminton in too long (and want to find out what’s going on with the club); ummm there’s prob more but I can’t think of anything else too noteworthy.
Hmmm…I think we’ll all be a bit more lighthearted once this finals season is over. Not that I’m in a huge hurry to face the summer, but you know…*shrug*.
Good luck to everyone else with any finals left. Lots to be done even aside from exams. But as I’ve been saying, one thing at a time. Whew. Let’s get to it.
