Thrings

1) Rode bike to school today for the first time since the Fall. Wanted to throw up halfway there. Had to rest for about 5 minutes in order to not vomit or pass out into the street. Why, oh why haven't I kept up my condition so riding would be easier? Sucks right now. But, every time I stop working out for a long time and then start up again, I vehemently hate it for about two weeks until my body catches up with my mental drive. So eventually I won't have to rest halfway again. I really want to put a screw mount on my handlebars and attach my video camera to record my journey to school. I would set it to the theme from Neverending Story, because that is what I always hear in my head when I ride my bike, ever since I was a child. Falcor! Yeah! It's like The Nothing never was! Woot!

2) Gave the back of my hair a self-trim today, and so my hair looks much less awkward. I had gone to get my first professional haircut since about last May or June recently, which I have been reluctant to do because no hairstylist ever seems to understand what I want them to do, and then I end up feeling like a weird dork with somebody else's hair. Well, once again that is what happened. My hair hasn't looked bad, but it's just not something I know what to do with. Feels like someone else's hair, as I say. The shape was all wrong. I don't understand how it is that people don't understand what "longer in front" means. It doesn't mean the front hair can come up higher than the back so long as the hairs themselves are longer than the individual back hairs. Not to me, anyway. But nobody ever understands, so I end up having to do self trims to get my hair slowly back to how I want it. I am convinced that is just going to be the way to go.

3) I am working on this big memo for my legal writing class, and it's going so badly. I've never had as much trouble before on a legal writing assignment. But my legal issue is really complicated, and I'm having a really hard time figuring out how to organize my arguments. In fact, I'm still a little fuzzy on how my arguments are going to play out entirely, so maybe that's my problem. Anyway, I have to turn in a draft on Thursday, and then conference with my professor next Monday, and before then I have to get the damn thing down on paper in a reasonably sensical fashion (it appears that sensical is not a word; I think, however, if nonsensical is a word, sensical also ought to be, so I'm using it). This is one of those times where I have no idea how I'm going to get through something, and all I can do is chant "this too shall pass" and work like mad.

I feel for you. I was so overwhelmed with a team project last week that I stressed out to the point of making myself sick. Then I failed my module exam. First time ever. Sucked. However, I woke up the next day and the world was still spinning...without my permission, of course.

Good luck - I'm always pulling for you.

Hi Sarah! I am secretly stalking your blog. Hope you don't mind. I know exactly how you feel about the hair thing...happens to me every time I get my hair cut. Can't they just get it right?!? :) Hope you are doing well!

Hi Cam Cam! I don't mind you stalking my blog if you don't mind reading profanity from time to time. I'm hanging in there. This semester is demanding. Hope all is well with you and you and the fam.
