Dear Faithful Readers (and unfaithful readers, if you decided to tune in today),
I have to apologize for going MIA for a little while there. I've been in a funky mood lately, a kind of cynical one, and I find that it's best for me to lay low during those times. I think because when I get cynical it's too easy for me to get caught up in the world's problems and start ranting and we all know that doesn't solve anything. Instead I have to take a few breathers (or go on a 12-mile bike ride, which is how I de-stressed on Monday) and put everything back into perspective.
At this point in the game (I graduate in less than two months holy crap), it's extremely difficult to finish homework, or even put forth any effort in homework, but I also have a hard time thinking about what happens after graduation. If I know nothing else, I do know that for the first time in my self-aware life I won't be headed to school come next fall.
My way of coping with anxious/nervous/excited feelings has been to take more naps, check out all the books by Dave Eggers in the Mulva Library and hang out in the Writing Center after hours, eating the M&M's we always have there and discussing the differences between men and women with my coworkers. So if you've been wondering where I've been lately, there you go. And if you haven't noticed my absence, then I hope you enjoyed your random creeping.
