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

poetry slam

I spent the day yesterday busy, glum, and sleepy from insomnia. So, last night I did something completely different from anything I would ever usually do- thinking that taking myself to a new place to meet new people would at least take my mind off of things. So, Jo and I went to a poetry slam at our friend's music studio. Let me say, I generally dislike poetry. And what little experience I've had with poetry open-mic nights were also not so much fun. Recently I've discovered 1 poet that I like quite a bit, so we went to this poetry slam to see him (and I found out he knows this blogger too). Well this poetry slam was very different than anything I usually do. It was a small group of really interesting and very friendly people. Beer, chips, dip and watermellon. And the poetry was very, very good- surprisingly good, and therapeutic to listen to. We left kind of early because the beer and a lack of sleep made me too sleepy. And I actually slept through most of the night. Maybe getting my head out of academia every once in a while is a good thing. And this weekend? No work at all. I am taking 2 whole days off. That is hard to say. When I think of taking the weekend off, I think "oh- I could do some reading for my article," but I am going to try to resist the urge. This girl just needs a serious mental break already.
