I'm having a shower problem. No, the shower works fine. It's me who isn't. I just can't seem to wake myself up in time to shower in the morning and by the afternoon all I want to do is nap. So I've been showering every other day.

Don't stand too close.

When something unexpected happens, does it consume your thoughts?

Yeah, I'm having one of those days.

Just For Now
by Imogen Heap

Just for now, just for now

It's that time of year,
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here,
I know we've all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

How did you know?
It's what I always wanted,
You can never have had too many of these
Will ya quit kicking me under the table?
I'm trying, will somebody make her shut up about it?
Can we settle down please?

It's that time of year,
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here,
I know we've all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

Bite tongue
Deep breaths
Count to ten
Nod your head
(sniff sniff)

I think something is burning,
Now you've ruined the whole thing
Muffle the smoke alarm
Whoever put on this music
Had better quick, sharp, remove it
Pour me another
Oh, don't wag your finger at me

It's that time of year,
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here,
I know we've all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

Get me outta here
Just for now
Just for now

I finally feel like it's spring break! Yesterday, I wrote my last paper and e-mailed it in about 20 minutes until it was due. I also gave my speech yesterday. I had already talked to the teacher and we arranged for me to speak in front of just her and my friend in the class, Heather. It went well and although I was still nervous, I actually got through it. Two minutes feels like an eternity when you're standing up there. I'm at home now and everyone has already left so I have no idea what I'm going to do this week! I think I have something planned on Monday, but that's in question now so I really have no idea!!! oh well... I can catch up on my reading.

I've had a kind of rough week. It started with a two-minute speech I had to give in my communications class. I just couldn't do it. I stood up there and botched a few sentences until I felt like there was no hope anymore. There was silence for about 40 seconds until I realized that it was over. I've ruined it. I asked to leave the classroom (with everyone watching) and the substitute (my GA wasn't even there!) told me to come talk to her when class was over. Once I was safely outside the room, the tears started falling, but I couldn't find the bathroom. There were no signs for one and so I just wandered around the tiny building with tears pouring down my cheeks. I was (and still am) so embarrased. I felt like I was 8 years old crying outside the classroom. The rest of the week just included two tests, a quiz, a required, high-intensity cardio workout (which I'm still feeling sore from), and a secret. I'm just praying for spring break to come quickly now.
