As you can likely tell, I'm still being a very busy girl. More so lately as I'm getting into the swing of far too many commitments I think… and its hard not to procrastinate the important ones. Fortunately I'm deadline oriented and should still manage to get most things done but still it sure isn't easy… particularly with the prevalence of… uh… distractions as of late.
Sometimes distractions are necessary: lately I've been using them partially to prevent me from overparticipating in class. And I sure as heck don't want to run down that path too often… even if the material happens to be super engaging. Brown-nosing while useful to certain ends is clearly not my purpose.
And well I definitely feel happier lately than I have in a long time, even if I do happen to need to be a lot more productive. It's all about prioritizing and I've gotta work on that! For example, my project management class involves actually managing and accomplishing a project out in the community with an organization and I'm rather pleased with the idea of getting that done, even if the organization's expectations are necessarily not the same as our own. Gawsh, to think I'm a technical advisor on a real project, even if it does happen to be for class!
Last night/afternoon I watched Pandorum. It was a very good dystopian movie in many senses. But right out the gate it was so utterly frightening/gruesome… ack, I'm not a very big fan of horror/scary movies, but this one worked out to be better in the end. Plus I had good company, even if he was rather far away.
Then I went and saw Wingfield's Lost & Found at The Citadel. It was far better than I thought it would be, and I saw Brad from SLIS there, so I wasn't entirely alone. I now understand the appeal of the Wingfield plays.
I've been playing a lot of Wii lately… and been enjoying the results… even if I'm not changing hugely it's affecting my energy levels and preventing me from getting all frustrated by sitting in front of the computer all day. I try to play for at least half an hour to an hour each day.
