i’m posting because i’m currently waiting for my friend to finish her studying so that we can hightail out of this building i’ve been hibernating in for nearly nine hours. i found this building on my way to hibernate in a library, but i thought the standalone, trailer ranch looking thing would be more conducive to my studying, so i walked to a door and tried to open it. in reality, the door was just locked, but i thought maybe it was just stuck (and i was freaking cold, yo, so i just wanted to open anything and get me some shelter going on), so i kept pulling and tinkering around when i finally noticed there was a classroom full of people inside. some who stared at me.

but that was nearly nine hours ago, when the sun was still out and about, and now i’m sitting here, waiting in anxiousness to brave the great cold once more and trek a few hundreds of yards (!) to return to the warm sanctum of my apartment.

and then i’m going to order domino’s.

don’t tell anyone, but during my nine hour period of studying, i’ve periodically just left a large picture of domino’s oven baked sandwiches on my computer screen.

and just stared.

yesterday i worked the brunch hours at my school’s campus center (where we serve food… and brunch) and had to manage the table of pastries. and by manage, i mean i eyed down the doughnuts, muffins, and cake and willed people not to take the ones i had already selected to devour when my break came.

yeah, those doughnuts were good. i want to add that they were miniature doughnuts, so eating however many i did probably amounted to one normal-sized doughnut, so this all sounds ok.

i can never seem to update consistently once school starts, so maybe we should shoot for a once a month goal for me. i promise though, i’m legitimately busy this year rather than truly lazy. for one thing, i have one exam every week until thanksgiving. this is no exaggeration! in the last two weeks, i’ve already taken my psychology, organic chemistry, and macroeconomics exams. on this thursday, i have physics, and then next week, i have my psychology exam again, and everything repeats. i didn’t know this once-a-week festival of knowledge was even possible, but …yeah, it’s ongoing. what the hell?

quick updates on my day-to-day life: i sleep moderately (but i think this will change to minimally very soon. probably this week. probably tonight); i study persistently (THIS IS NEW! i never used to study in my life but decided to turn a new leaf this semester. i’ve been seriously rethinking how i might prefer being out all night and morning and just letting my grades fall where they may over studying regularly though. really, the difference between a 60 and 90 isn’t always that big… numbers are numbers. though failing and passing might have very large distinctions…?); i work periodically; i eatttt a lot.

mm… doughnuts.

happy october, everyone!
