For all the things I don't know, there's at least one thing I do -- My sleep "schedule" is out of control. It's too cold to sleep in my bedroom most of the time, so I find myself on the couch or in the office, and that puts me less than 5 feet away from something better to do than sleep. Of course there's also the overwhelming influx of homework I'm strapped with this semester (my sincerest gratitude to Old Man Winter for sending the Math and Italian departments into a "catch up from the blizzard" frenzy) I seriously spent the better part of two straight days doing Calculus homework last week, and that was because I missed 2 days. Rock on.
Right.... sleep.... I don't know. I tried it for a few hours tonight, but coughing and worrying about all that homework got the better of me, so here I am at 5am getting ready to read about women's rights for my 8:30 class so I can spend the hour after that prepping for my Italian exam at 10:30. Then, of course, I'll have an hour to finish up my Calc homework before class at 12:30, and then I'll have about 45 minutes to eat something before I have to trudge across campus to go to my CS lecture. At about 3:30 I'll probably head back home for some food, and if I'm not too tired, I'll work out for an hour. Then I'll head back down to campus so I can finish my CS project and hopefully try to take the reigns on this whole homework fiasco so the rest of the week isn't quite so high-paced.
I need to read something that wasn't assigned to me, and I need to run on a riverbank with nothing but my iPod in tow. I need a balmy evening where no shirt feels good, and I need a bourbon, two ice cubes in a heavy glass, and my guitar. I need a haircut. I need my health. I need to wake up at sunrise and feel refreshed. I need to see God on the ground and in the sky, and in the eyes of everyone I meet. I need to treasure the blessings I have, but these things I need to seek out for myself. I need my best friend.
Thanks. I needed that.
And now, I need the golden sun to charge the midnight sky like the cavalry at dawn.
I got this. It's a beautiful day.
