grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...

and I'll climb the hill in my own way...*

I am finishing a paper tonight. At the last minute. Of course, why on earth would I complete anything ahead of time? I am on overdrive for the next couple weeks, finishing up some much-needed-to-be-finished stuff before really throwing myself head first into prelim stuff. Capitalizing on this overdrive is key. I feel good about getting things done, so just don't even try to distract me (who am I kidding? Nothing ever tries to distract me but Jo and the canoe). I think I will panic every time I think about the prelim. And all the other "projects" I have taken on... But, I have all the prelim stuff ready, and I have read some already. And I need to not freakin' think about things so much and just do them. I burned the top of my mouth very badly on pizza tonight. Having a blister up there is just truly creepy. Sorry, you probably didn't want to know but the good news is I am off the damned antibiotic and bought some wonderful New Glaurus Native beer tonight. Yum. But, I have a new tiny laptop bag, a brand new gig of ram in my imac's hard drive and Jo is making coffee!! This is all very exciting news. I have never seen a faster computer in my life, my new orange laptop bag just makes me very happy and coffee is good for my soul. It's the small things that are truly important. I go to Maine soon to see Jony and family (and for that pesky reunion). I just have to lug prelim material with me when I go, and be really vigilant about studying in the Patten Free Library (where I used to work and will probably irritatingly run into tons of people I know) for a few hours every day. No lazy Maine time for me. I am listening to Pink Floyd while I write. It is just perfect writing music. *Thus the title of this post, from Meddles' Fearless, one of my all-time favorite songs.
