One Week!

Why is it that, on break, I can barely stay up past 1AM but then during the academic year, I am fine –as in I could pull it off– sleeping at 3AM and waking up at 8:30AM (I have a 9AM class)? Could I still be sleep deprived, even though, I slept past noon everyday of this week thus far? I don't know. All I do know is that I managed to hibernate pretty well this break, aka do nothing. So, I better be ready to work hard until the end of the academic year.

Remember the story I started last break, Riding the T? Well, I'm not going to finish it. I've come to the conclusion that I don't write stories. I don't think I have the skill or attention span to write a story. What I will do, though, is write an idea or part of a story. That way, I can constantly explore new ideas. Actually, I have an idea on my mind right now. I'll write it down soon. (I also just might shine a light on past ideas that I've never initiated the writing process . . . Hmm, it's a possibility.)

Also, I've realized that when I'm "procrastinating," um . . . "wasting time," I'm usually on the interwebs. I'm an avid wikipedia reader and I enjoy reading all sorts of random blogs: news, technology, friends, entertainment, sports, celebrities, etc. and I love watching youtube videos and playing Tetris. Oh, and let's not forget my addiction to social networks like facebook and aim (Yes, I still use aim). None of this really benefits me though. And, the time period sans-internet was really not too terribly long ago. My parents, after-all, lived a good amount of years internet-less and they turned out great. So wait, does this mean I'll be MUCH more productive if the internet didn't exist? Or will I still insist on procrastinating and lug myself to the library and read the encyclopedia? You laugh, but I wouldn't put it past myself. I was an AP, advanced procrastination, student. I would do anything to procrastinate, plus, I use to read the almanac when I was younger. Experiment, emily? No internet, except email checking and blackboard and school related stuff and emergencies (facebook withdrawals is not an emergency). =O This will probably not go well. Oh well. Starting now? Yup! =]

Ahhhh, I'm super tired. Good Night! And hopefully, be back in a week with a story idea.
