last night's crappy mood seems to have been replaced by happy caffeination this morning. I don't know what my problem was last night but it might have had something to so with not being able to go to sleep the night before because I could not stop thinking about all the things I have not done with my life thus far and I could not stop stressing about the more specific things I must do with my life by January 20.

today I don't seem to care so much. if I blow the self-imposed deadline on writing that intro, so be it. if I spend my energy writing my dissertation this next little while and don't have any leftover for the story of my life, so be it. I can write that later.

the problem with "later" of course is that it is not guaranteed but what are you going to do. only so many hours in the day and they go by so quickly now I barely have time to do one thing much less two or more.

ok now I'm starting to feel crappy again.

let's start over. today I will read and then I will go for a long walk as it has stopped raining. tomorrow I'm taking off so I can get my hair cut and do laundry. the next day I am taking off because it is a holiday not that I always observe holidays but this one is secular enough that it does not bother me.

then I will work for a couple of days. maybe then there will be some writing done.

and then next week it's off to the desert for my yearly winter camping. must try not to feel guilty for taking the time to go. what is the matter with me.

  • better all the time. for now, anyway.

    Instead of staring at the internet, I've been reading actual books. Well, some of them are in .pdf's on my hard drive, but they were at one time…

    Santiago is eating. ssshhh. we'll see what happens next. last night before we fell asleep I gave him a good long look because he seemed so painful…

  • Jackson and I enjoyed it anyway

    the salmon was a non-starter for Santiago: a sniff and a lick and that was it. :( well, as a facebook friend mentioned, H1N1 did make the jump to…
