This past week has been spring break at college. I have officially not been in class for an entire 7 days, and it feels like I’ve hardly accomplished anything that I was supposed to be doing over the break. I have two tests and a paper due when I go back, and I haven’t completed or studied for much of anything. I had a study session with my friend Bree at the library on Tuesday, but that’s as much as I’ve seemingly accomplished. I’ve worked on my paper several times, but it’s just going so slowly–as most of my papers have been going lately. I used to be able to knock papers out fairly easily… but my last two have taken me over a week for a simple 4 page paper. I don’t know what’s going on, but I don’t like it.
Part of the reason that things might be so difficult this week, is that I have moved into a new house, and been trying to get my car up and running again. My mind has been on several other things, that I haven’t put much thought into my paper. That needs to change this weekend–I need to work on it, no matter what. However, that’s probably not going to happen, as tonight my best friends want to get together, and tomorrow, I’m going out with my girlfriend to meet some of her friends. Tomorrow during the day though, I should have time to knock some of it out… I just need to set my alarm and not sleep in, in the morning. Which, if the cats continue their crying tonight, I might oversleep without even realizing it. They kept me up really late last night, looking for their mom and dad… whom are in Sudan, Africa right now… which leads me to my next paragraph.
The house I mentioned that I moved in to is a fairly large and lovely log cabin in a part of a resort, in the middle of the woods. It’s daaaaaark and quiet there at night. Almost eerie, but in an awesome sort of way. ANYWAY–the owners of said cabin are on a mission trip to Sudan and left their three kitties behind. So, they hired me to come stay at their place and watch their cats for them, for the next three months. It doesn’t pay very well at all, but I’m helping them out and I’m able to live on my own for a while. So, I’m not complaining. The one thing I will complain about though, is that the cats have decided that the potted plants make better toilets than the litter box. Bleh…
Anyway, that’s about it for this update. Pray for me to be able to finish my stupid paper. If I could write as easily for it as I do for this, it’d probably be done by now. Stupid fact collecting… it’s slowing me down.
Oh, and if you’re wondering about the title of this post, that’s just my new, awesome word.
