Skip a meeting

It's okay to skip a meeting when skipping for higher purposes, especially when the meeting releases minutes. However, when there are no minutes it causes confusion and disarray.

Five and one-half hours. The amount of time I spent in reviews with little to no break time today. Working with such a schedule is impossible and leaves me drained and without energy for the coming day.

Today in the course of two hours my workload increased exponentially. I went from one exam and one homework to two exams, three homeworks, and a paper.

Today I'll be skipping a meeting for a pair of reviews. That should be a fair exchange.

The Weekend

Things went well for a weekend. It's Sunday afternoon, and like any Sunday afternoon I got up too late to do anything with my day. Today, that's perfectly fine because I really need to work on my Discrete Math, before that comes up and kills me.

Only four more days to that test.

For the past week or so now, it's been incredibly difficult for me to sleep. It's not to the point of clinical insomnia, and I have been able to get some amount of sleep, but nevertheless it is still a huge problem for me.

It started last Thursday when the temperature was 75F, and since any air conditioning was turned off the previous Friday, the feeling indoors was worse than 75F. It reached an extreme on Tuesday, when I was unable to sleep at all. Other nights had seen me sleeping at 5:30AM, 6:45AM, and even 7:30AM.

I have no idea what's making me stay awake, but I need to figure it out. And quickly.

I find it hard

I find it hard to put my thoughts and feelings into words lately.

An Opening

Henry Rollins: What's your latest obsession?
Hank Moody: Just the fact that people seem to be getting dumber and dumber. You know, I mean we have all this amazing technology and yet computers have turned into basically four figure wank machines. The internet was supposed to set us free, democratize us, but all it's really given us is Howard Dean's aborted candidacy and 24 hour a day access to kiddie porn. People...they don't write anymore - they blog. Instead of talking, they text, no punctuation, no grammar: LOL this and LMFAO that. You know, it just seems to me it's just a bunch of stupid people pseudo-communicating with a bunch of other stupid people in a proto-language that resembles more what cavemen used to speak than the King's English.
Henry Rollins: Yet you're part of the problem, I mean you're out there blogging with the best of them.
Hank Moody: Hence my self-loathing.

I'd say that's a good start.
