 Done with my paper! Should I sleep? Should I pack? Should I watch Hulu and get wasted?

Eh. Probably pack.

By this time tomorrow I'll be on a plane! (with T-Pain! j/k) ...I'm onna PLANE.

I amend that. I need sleep. Because there is no way this crazy chick will get anything else accomplished.

 So my roommate is having issues with her boyfriend. I'm not exactly sure what is going on, as she's not telling and I'm not asking. But it's awkward. I keep having to leave the room for some bogus reason so that the two of them can have a heartfelt conversation and work out what's bothering them. And until I do leave, everyone is awkwardly silent.

I understand that maybe this is what A and R need to work out their issues. But I think the main issue is that my roommate is too clingy. From what I gather, R wanted things to just sort of drift apart and end amicably, but A keeps wanting commitment. And after every argument or discussion, A has to call everyone in her family and complain about how closed R is being. 

Breaking up can suck, I get that.

But A, sometimes you need to just get over it and not cause a scene.

Back to pretending that I'm working on my polisci paper. Or rather, trying to work on it. I thought I'd have more time to work on it tomorrow before the deadline, but somehow I got convinced into doing overtime at work. x_x

Three days until Eygpt! إن شاء الله

 Yeah... First public entry in nearly three years....

I really don't do well with journals. Really don't.

So, um, hi!
Going to Egypt next week, so excited. Maybe I'll blog from there? Oh wait, not bringing my computer. The days before then are going very slowly. But individual hours go rather quickly from the procrastination of papers that I have to do before spring break.

Ummmm.... procrastinating.....

Wow this is so awkward-sounding.

I just finished the Calculus project that was due yesterday.

I don't know if this makes me relived or anxious. Maybe both.

And here I thought I would get all caught up with my schoolwork over Spring Break. Ha. Ha ha.

My mom has decided that she needs to go through her things and throw out or give away mountains of stuff. My inner organization freak is happy.

First went most of my mom's economics textbooks from college and graduate school. This managed to free up about one or two shelves on her bookcases, so we decided to reorganize all the books by category. By now, my inner OCD book nerd was jumping for joy. I got to move books around on shelves and worry about things like genre, accessiblity of reference books, and size order.
Not too long ago, we went through old VHS tapes, leaving only about 10 left (I can't say the same for the DVDs). This also cleared up space for lots of new and exciting movies.
My mom and I are going through her CD collection as well. She just got an iPod, so much time has been spent uploading tracks to iTunes. As for the CDs the tracks came from? They can go straight in a box of items to donate to a thrift shop or something.

The downside to all this lovely organization is that we now have four Staples boxes of books and CDs to get rid of, and counting. We haven't even figured out where to put the movies yet. I find it hard to think of any way we can cart these boxes around Manhattan to find someplace that will take them. Books especially get very heavy.

We need more boxes. Soon.

Finally, it is Spring Break! Freedom!

Well, not exactly. I have enough homework to do over my week off to keep me occupied for a few days of nothing but work. I'm just really glad I'm not going anywhere on vacation, else I would be spazzing out right now.

However, it is such a relief to be able to sleep late and save my (nearly nonexistent) sanity. By the time I got to double period Physics at the end of today, I didn't care a fig about light refraction. I fear I missed the entire lesson while doodling on my do-now worksheet. At least they were good doodles! But ask me now, and I cannot recall a single academic thing that happened in that class today.  I guess I'm screwed over come our next test.

Now on to application forms... Due to my score of 2380 on the SATs, my dad is now saying I should go to Harvard and pushing me to do one of their summer programs. The courses don't actually look too bad (e.g. Perspectives on Islam: Religion, History, and Culture; Word Origins: English Etymology; and Global Energy and Environmental Politics). I could even do a short session and take yet more classes. The downside is the long application, which requires two recommendations, three free-response questions, a graded essay, and pages of forms. Why so much for a summer course? I don't know. Either way, it's time to buckle down and get everything filled out. Oh joy.

I. Am. In. A. State. Of. Shock.

How? I didn't even finish my essay!

But I have the "Congrats!" balloon on the ceiling of my room and chocolates my stepmom bought me, so it must be real.

Then again, anything with chocolate in it might be a wonderful dream after all.
