Wow…it’s been a while. I’ve become quite neglectful of this little blog here. There’s just been so much going on. Well, not really, but it certainly felt like a lot was going on.

I had been working a bit more and was a little more tired than usual, which isn’t anything to complain about, but combine that with the increased laziness in the summer…and you get over a month without an update on my blog.

Well, I guess I’ll sort out some of the things that I have been doing these past few weeks.

It’s that time of year again. It’s been slowly building up for the past few weeks and things have now reached that familiar, dreaded crescendo. Yep, it’s that time when I cut myself off from friends, family, and most other forms of interaction to get myself through what is known as “Finals Week.”

I have a 20-page paper due by Tuesday. It’s for a ridiculously unorganized and challenging class that is worth about 4 times more credits than I’m getting for it. (The class actually turned out okay. A little exhausting, but okay…like most classes.)

I haven’t exactly started on the paper yet…and there are of course the final exams themselves to cram for.

But it’s actually not as bad this year. It isn’t nearly as bad as last semester, which I still can’t believe I got through in one piece. I think I lost about 8 pounds because of that. Maybe it’ll only be about 4 pounds this time around.

I hate life right now, but in a few days, I will experience immense joy in just being alive.

This post is for National Blog Posting Month, which was brought to my attention by the lovely and hilarious Essaytch. They have something different every month and for April, the objective is to write a letter a day for a month. I’m obviously not writing a letter a day but I’m participating anyway.

And I’m sneaking in two more before this month is over, just to be more of a “participant.” Because 2 is kind of weak. So is 4, but hey, that qualifies as a “handful,” which is all I wanted to write.

Dear Lit-class Girl,

You probably remember me, but I’m not too sure. You were in a couple of my Lit. classes with me last year. “British Literature after 1800,” and “British Literature before 1800” the very next semester. Both the classes were held in the same room, and you sat in the middle each semester. I thought you were kind of cute.

I am DONE! Finished. Over. Done with this HUMUNGO, GI-NORMOUS, HELL of a to-do list. Every. Damn. Thing.

I feel like I’ve lost 2 years off of my life expectancy. Not too sure of my final grades this semester but if I were a betting man, and I had to put money on it, I’d bet that I got a 4.0 =)

For further explanation on how I feel right now, please refer to the “Songs of the Day.”
