After this past hellish week, my semester is all but wrapped up. I had 30 pages of writing due last Thursday, but now the only thing I’m looking at is an hour-long exam this coming Saturday. For the first time in a long time, I’m…bored.
In preparation for the fast approaching real world, I really tried to load up my plate this semester. I took writing intensive classes, started a club and joined another, was/am on a club sports team, do my own laundry. And I’m working two jobs, I almost forgot about those. It was pretty exhausting. Not to mention I’m living in an apartment, and I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this but I have a little trouble sharing space. It adds more unprompted stress in my life, you see. And to some extent, I’m worried that taking on all of this may have negatively impacted the commitment I could have put into any one of these activities. I guess that’s a lesson in itself, huh.
Regardless, I’m looking forward to a JanPlan full of blacksmithing and snowboarding. I’m also going to try to watch all of Battlestar Galactica, because I’ve finally summoned up enough free time and geek-offset (blacksmithing is thick with testosterone, right?) to tackle the serious, which is notoriously life destroying (EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH PORTLANDIA TOO.)
In other news, I was talking to my friend Lucas recently. Lucas and I go way back to high school in the Bronx, and he told me that he is actually pretty special here. Every Tuesday at 4 p.m, he host a WHMB (the college’s radio station) show with his friend Ty. That’s not special, there are 2 hour time slots all over the place and anyone can apply for one (I did a hipster music show my freshman year.) Their particular show is special because it is the only talk-radio show the College produces. And it’s sports talk radio. The banter is great, and they are from New York (call me biased.) Ya’ll should check them out.
