The past four weeks have been interesting. I couldn't really tell you what's been happening since I don't really remember. But I know there has been reading, writing, driving, bus ridings and scant moments of arithmetic.
Eww. Especially the arithmetic part.
But this session of summer classes is flying by, there are only 2 weeks left. And I'm hoping by the end of it all I will have absorbed some fraction of economics. For some unknown reason I'm sure is silly.
The problem is this: I can't remember things because there is too much time. There are things I should be thinking about and keeping track of but I don't because I have lots of time to do it. You see, I really operate better when there is too much to be done. I'm a master procrastinator, avoider, and otherwise putter-offer.
In the mean time other things are shaping up nicely. I'm steadily getting more busy which is a relief. It sorta takes care of the too much time to think about nothing problem. The sun is shining and that makes my skin pink and me happy. With plenty of reading to get done and writing to do I've been scouting neighborhood coffee shops and found one within walking distance that has the most wonderful tea.
I finally wrapped up the May photo challenge from Fat Mum Slim. Yesterday on June 3 to be exact. I sorta agreed to jump right in to June, but instead of using my phone and Instagram to capture and post the shots I'm using my big-girl-camera. Which means I'm supposed to be carrying it with me everywhere and being a bit more observant than usual. We'll just say I'm not doing so hot thus far. But do not dispair! I can do better. I will do better.
I'm also preparing for my first backpacking trip to take place this weekend. I cannot express to you how incredibly hyped I am for this trip. I've been dreaming of hiking The Narrows in Zion National Park since I was about 14 and now, half my life later, I'm doing it. Three days and two nights tromping through one of the most beautiful slot canyons on the planet. So psyched for this.
In the mean time there's another article to write, three to edit, assignments to make, papers to write, homework to complete and a test to take. I'm pretty sure the next… month is totally gonna rock my socks.
