Saturday listblogging

  1. Mr. Angst and I have been trying to figure out how to be more healthy. Today, we decried the various websites which give a wide variety of “ideal” body weights, includine ones which purport to be able to figure all that out based on some body measurements.
  2. So I made homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner.
  3. This summer I’m doing research for a professor, and she sent me an email asking if I wanted to take a look at the preliminary materials and supporting articles before we meet, right after exams. I told her I would love to, but that they might distract me from outlining and studying for exams. I wasn’t lying, either. Sigh.
  4. Therefore I started continued working on my last outline today, so as not to give the lie to my claim. (Really, there was no lie to the claim. It’s just that procrastination is in my blood. Frankly, I’d feel much less guilty if I were looking at my summer research stuff than blogging. No offense to those of you who are reading. Blogging during exams is just guilty-making.)

There's a Monya Mental learning curve here*

I started working on my barely-begun outline for my last exam this morning. I realize now that the professor started with the most complex (or at least most theoretically confusing) element of the course. And I didn’t really fall into a note-taking rhythm for the course until several weeks into the semester. So my notes don’t make a lot of sense. And the professor sort of jumped around things, a lot, so my outline is, frankly, a huge mess.

So I have a lot of work to do on it. That’s OK, I have several days. But right now, I’m a little daunted by the extent of work I have left to do.

* One of ESPN’s analysts said this about Vince Young transitioning to the NFL. Seriously. Said it just like that. Monya. Mental.

Saturday morning blogging

April 29, 2006 Comments off

I meant to take one of my remaining finals today. The problem, though, is that I would have had to pick it up by 11 am, and that just wasn’t happening. Yesterday was pretty unproductive, too, in part because of the hangover, and in part because I was just coming down off of two finals in four days, so I didn’t really have time to get ready to take the exam this morning. Oh, and I was just WIPED, and I needed some solid, non-drunk sleep.

So I’ve started today off right. I’ve had my coffee, and a Nutella and banana sandwich, and I’m watching the NFL draft. I won’t be taking my final, true, but I will be doing all the work I intended to do last night. And since I don’t expect that work will take all day, I’ll also start working (or, really, continue working) on my outline for my other final. Once again, I’ll be taking over the desk and monitor.

It’s a Saturday, in other words. I’ve got work to do, but I’m going to be relaxed about it. Remember, duckies: stress kills.
