09:22 pm: The grass is always greener.
So I have an essay due on Wednesday and I just finished a one-week overdue paper today. What am I doing now? I'm procrastinating and thinking that I would really like to work in another country for a little while. It would be nice, wouldn't it?

I hate it when things all run into each other, but not enough to be excusable, only enough so that I have time to procrastinate and know that it's all my fault things run late. Which was not really the case with the week-overdue paper, by the way. I was sick from Thursday (well, more like Wednesday late night) to Tuesday, finished a paper on Tuesday that was actually due the day I became sick, almost finished the infamous one-week overdue paper, and then hopped on a plane to London (England, not Ontario, thankyouverymuch). I was only there for 48 hours, approximately 20 of which were spent sleeping, and I did not finish my paper there. So who knows how many percentage points I've lost.

The good news is that I will graduate very soon and I will get a real apartment soon and move back in with Morgon and we will have a real bed. And then my life will be so real I will wish I were back in school again.

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday.

07:42 pm: You know you've become too indulgent in your life when you do things like buy big fudge cupcakes and read trashy tabloids in bed and let out little moans while doing so. And yes, I'm completely alone.

10:06 am: One "meme" that I found and actually felt like doing.
So instead of doing my readings before class, I come across the
110 Banned Books MemeCollapse )
and decide to do that. Quite interesting, really...I went to see Nihil Obstat: An exhibition of banned, censored & challenged books in the West 1491-2000 at the Fisher Rare Books library. It was neat-o. I'm actually quite surprised that The Merchant of Venice wasn't on the list that I just copied and pasted. Hmm. For some reason, the topic of banned books has been rather front-and-centre lately. At least in my bubble...I'm sure there was a lecture about it last week at U of T...okay. Apparently it was Freedom to Read Week. Irshad Manji said that Salman Rushdie told her that "a book is more important than a life."

And apparently, babbling in my livejournal and figuring out which books I've read is more important than reading for class...because it's now 10:00 and I have to get dressed, clean myself, grab my books and run to the far side of campus for my class that begins in ten minutes. Eek!

I love how my username is "quotidian_quire" but I never update.

And I look nothing like my picture.

01:21 am: I have a busy schedule. To relieve myself of the associated stress, I have a weekly yoga class. This makes my schedule even busier. Does this make sense?

11:39 pm: A sort of addendum to the column in the newspaper.
I really ought to take up some sort of habit, like exercise or speed, that will allow me to fit more hours into the waking portion of my day. I'm busy enough without all the things I want to do jammed into my already too hectic day.

I also really just want to be able to go out and socialize. I realize that last year, I probably did that a bit too much and lived the other extreme, but a balance would be nice. I don't want to spend the majority of my day in my bedroom; I don't want to be a hermit all the time (although admittedly, I do enjoy that as well). I want to meet new people, explore new places, try new things. I want to catch up with my old friends, read favourite books, and shop in Kensington.

Next term is when I'm placing all my bets for this to happen -- I'll only be doing five courses. I can't wait. Christmas break also couldn't come soon enough, as I'll be exam-free. I hope to work and earn tons of money and write. I wanted to go to New York but Morgon will have gone back home by then. Sigh.
