I’ve recently realized that my glasses give me headaches. Not just any headaches either, but terrible “I-feel-like-my-head-is-exploding” headaches. Harry Potter’s got nothing on me.
It’s not such a terrible thing. I wear contacts most days anyway, and only one pair of my two seems to be causing problems. Too bad it’s my favorite ones that have it out for me. Isn’t that the way it always happens though? Oh, life.
I think some of my headaches may be from my own denial that Fall semester starts in 2 weeks. Yikes. When did that happen? I’ve been quite productive over the last week or so, but it’s still not enough to make up for my complete and utter laziness over the last three months. I’m not sure what happened. I had all these plans and barely accomplished anything. Guess who’s going to have a terrible Fall semester? That’s right. This girl. I’m thinking the librarians and I are going to be great friends. At least there’s a new coffee shop opening on the first floor. Wonder if they’ll sell me an intravenous drip.
I’m pretty excited to be busy again – as weird as that may seem. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am no good unless I’ve got way too much to do and no time in which to do it. At least this Fall should be better than last. I’m hoping anyway. I learned a lot about myself and others last year, but I’d take fewer life lessons and more sleep over anything this time around.
Part of my headaches may be from the PhD application process. I’ve got a good head start heading into full-blown application season, but I definitely didn’t study for the Subject Exam as much as I should have. I’m also a little worried that I have to go through this whole process again without any of the people who got me through it last time. I’ve got great and supportive friends here, but sometimes I just really miss my Orlando support group. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it through without them this time.
