The wall

I have hit it...

With renewed motivation (aided by a couple of uni offers) I have attacked my coursework full on. All day has been spent on my laptop writing and rewriting essays, source analyses, overviews etc. I actually started around six in the AM, not by choice mind you. I had been tossing and turning for over an hour trying to get back to sleep, but to no avail. So I made myself a cup of tea and got to work. Around nine I managed to nap for about an hour, around two I watched some Sons of Anarchy (that show was made for me!) and at 4-ish I went out and got myself a veggie delite from subway. Apart from that it has been all work...
And now my brain has stopped working.
I still have to write up the answers to my interview questions and then analyse both questions and answers. And I was hoping to get a bit more of my literature essay done to try and avoid an all-nighter tomorrow.
So I'm going to allow myself a little break. Maybe some trash tv, liquorice allsorts, salty sticks, caffeine free diet coke and snus will reinvigorate my tired mind.

At least my printer is working again. That shit was doing my head in...

Stress and stuff

Everybody deals with stress in different ways.
This seems to be how my body deals with it (without my consent): massive acne outbreak threatening to turn me into pizza face; left shoulder + neck suddenly, and without warning or reason, spasming and seizing up, causing almost unbearable pain and an inability to move left arm or head + shoulder.
I'm now on my third day with neck/shoulder pain. It has gradually gotten a bit better, for instance I no longer need to keep my left shoulder pulled up and my head tilted to the left to keep from crying in pain (yay!) and I can move my head and arm relatively freely. Still hurts like a bitch. Ibuprofen and heat patches are keeping me sane.

And now I have to crawl back into the cave of never-ending schoolwork where I have spent the last week or so. And try not to cry...

Hey Ho Hey Ho

Off to school I go. New literature unit starting today. I can't remember if it's poetry or Shakespeare's Macbeth. Should be fun either way. I just wish they'd stop ruining the fun by making us write essays!
