Yes…I am tired. Even after going to bed at 6:30 PM last night and waking after 12 PM today (though I don’t think I really got up until 2 PM). I’m fairly certain that it’s a combination of the weather, and my immune system working hard to fight something off. (Maybe putting on my glasses will help with the burning eyes…)
In any case, I spent the waking time today which was not spent on eating (or, minorly, laundry), working on our Group Project, due in…four days. I have a quiz, but that will be OK. I also have three papers, one of which is almost finished. Everything — including the new Discussion topic — is due in four days.
What’s really irritating is that two of the papers, plus the Discussion topic, are for the same class: the class which I am really disliking, at this point. I’m going to try not to let that irritate me more, but it’s worth noting. I guess I can complain about it more after I get the stuff turned in, because working myself up into anger prior to that is just going to make it harder to get the essays done.
In any case, right now it is slightly after 10 PM where I’m at, meaning I have about 88 free hours to get everything done–!!! Though I’ll probably be asleep for half of those. I’m hoping that the work I put in for the group today will be adequate enough so I don’t look like I’m slacking. The good part is that the rest of the group has also begun work on the project.
I should finish up my Interview Paper first thing tomorrow, start on my Competency paper, and start on my Privacy paper. I can also work on my second Quiz, which looks easy enough. Actually, maybe I should take a look at the Quiz, tonight, and see what I have to look up on my own. The course evaluations can wait until last-minute; I don’t mind not getting the bonus for turning them all in, on time.
The other thing I need to do is find a Patron Conduct Policy — oh nevermind, just did that. 🙂
See?! It’s not so hard!
In any case, I’ve taken one of my two upcoming work days off, which should give me a little extra breathing room.
And either on the 12th or the 13th, you bet I’m going out there to get my new pens! I’ve been looking at my notebooks and have decided that 8.5″x11″ or slightly smaller (to trim bleeds) is good enough for a comic book. I actually have (or had) one that is around that size (called “The Generator” [knowing the title apparently does squat for looking it up on Google because of all the “comix generators”]; it was published as half of a “making comics” book), but I’m not sure exactly where it is, at the moment. Maybe I gave it away? That one was all in black and white, though…hm.
Maybe I should take a trip to the comic store, too…or at least take a look in the Graphic Novel section for adults, at my library…or — ha! — in the Graphic Novel sections of the nearest glut of libraries around me…
I should use them more if I work at them, yes…?
