You know, I swear something is wrong with my brain, like I must have ADD or something. I look at my readings and all I see are words that make no sense. And after like half a sentence, I'm already sleepy or my mind is on a hundred other things and not the subject at hand. So thinking that I need something to keep me awake (usually some sort of food), I get like popcorn since it's relatively healthy compared to chips and junk.
I finish the entire bowl of popcorn and I'm still on like the second paragraph and I still haven't the slightest idea of what I just read! Like what the heck is that about!?! I don't understand! Anyways, I better figure out how to fix my brain cuz two midterms and six papers aren't going to write themselves.
So what have I done these two days? Well, I'm almost finished booking tickets to London and India--a process that has turned out to take much longer than anticipated. I wrote a draft of the letter that I will send out to folks to help me raise funds. Did some revising and editing. Talked with certain people (probably would have accomplished more talking to a wall).
Talked with other certain people and received a bit of encouragement. Experienced a great deal of anger and frustration and disappointment and have been in an overall dismal mood. And I did some thinking.
Anyways, I think tomorrow I will take up Frank's offer and actually go to UBC and try to study. Don't know how that will work out because last time I decided to go to UBC to study, I fell asleep on those wonderful little sofa seats in Barber. But I am determined. Yes. Very. Determined.
