Fleaball: Slightly Alive

Recommended Posts

mostly-dead.jpg

 

So I said I was sitting out this round. Apparently I'm a liar. I'm okay with that. Why was I going to sit out: in the first two weeks I have two final papers, a presentation, a draft of a paper that will be at least 30 pages, and an essay about a shitty 1053-page book. Then the 30-page paper is due for realz the week after. And the week after that I graduate and go home for a week to epic family drama. All of this while working full-time. Also Sense8 season 2 comes out somewhere in week 3? #priorities.

 

ANYWAY. I was ready to write off the next 5 weeks because I'm not going to have time to work on my eating habits or a new exercise routine or anything at all; I'll be lucky to get 6 hours of sleep every night. So essentially dead to anything that isn't school-related. 

 

But I don't have to be totally dead. While I may not make a lot of forward progress, at least I can try not to get more dead. There's a lot of stress in my life beyond the school stuff and I can do my best to manage it. So I'm doing what I did earlier this year: meditate, write in my journal, repeat the mantra I keep forgetting about. But only as much as I can do them; no penalties or shaming myself for missing a day. I'm also adding my PT stretches because maybe seeing them on the spreadsheet will remind me to do them, even if it's only once a day. 

 

So there we have it. I will be mostly dead this challenge. But mostly dead is slightly alive. 

 

Handy dandy tracking spreadsheet. Feel free to copy and modify for your own needs.

Following along again for all your sagey saginess. 

You might be slightly disappointed. I expect this challenge to be less sage-ing and more incoherent screaming about deadlines and stupid people. :)

This has seriously been the theme of like...half my challenges. I think anything that helps keep the wheels on the cart is a Good Idea.

 

IT'S CHALLENGE THYME!

Oh good. Sense8 comes out on May 5th. I'll have time to binge it and still finish my paper. 

 

Unrelated: can it be Friday now? I need this week's episode of Supernatural. Immediately.

Let the school ranting begin! 

 

- I'm so tired of this research paper. It just needs to die. I'm trying to get the new data that somehow wasn't a thing I needed to do when I suggested it, but became imperative once someone else did. And I just don't care. At all. I'm literally at the point where I'd rather read Atlas Shrugged than do this. And I hate Atlas Shrugged so far. 

 

- Two weeks ago in my crisis communication class we did presentations on a crisis and how it was handled. My group did the Fukushima meltdown. Tonight in class we're doing mini press conference things where each of us is a stakeholder and individually we have to answer questions about the event. (Like "why didn't you do X?" "If you knew this was a problem why didn't you fix it?" Etc.) Which I don't want to do in general but I'm not really worried about it. Honestly I'm only grumpy that we're going in the order we presented so I'm like #11, where I usually volunteer to go first and get it over with. But each group is also supposed to be asking the questions to one other group. Which he assigned after the presentations were all over. And he said he posted recordings of them on Blackboard but I'm assuming he didn't make them public because no one can find them. So I'm grumpy about that because ugh. The prof's a nice guy but not so great at the being an organized teacher part. Which makes sense because he has a real job and isn't an academic. 

 

- I'm so over school? I have class this week and next week and then it's over and it feels like F O R E V E R. I just don't want to go to class anymore but I kinda have to. Womp.

I'm the kind of person who will complain more once I can see the finish line. Which is sort of useless, but it's how I roll. For now. Maybe I'll start crossing enough finish lines to get over it. Or @Sylvaa will drag me over them.

People who don't know me are totally going to get the wrong idea..... I am not always quite as much of a sadist as Flea makes it seem!

I just burst out laughing because that cat is me. So me. 

 

You're totally not a sadist. I only mean I won't make it through races unless someone is making me.
