Time, time, time...

In a people house...

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

-Simon & Garfunkel-

A few weeks ago I deduced I'd been running approximately 2 weeks behind in life...or was it a week? Either way, I was running behind and the anxiety of impending deadlines felt much like impending death, without the rest and peaceful parts.

I buckled down, (read: neglected everyone and everything that wasn't on a list or whining) and got it all done, and done well. I'm still holding onto my 4.0 GPA with just two more assignments and one week to go. I'm equal parts proud and [insert English language translation of "blah"].

I know this seems awfully existentialist of me, especially since I generally reserve random thoughts for Thursdays, but does the end ever really justify the means? I mean, when you're done doing, you've only freed yourself to do more-and, hopefully if you're lucky- different stuff.

That being said, now that my studies and one craft fair are done, I'm in full out holidays prep and planning mode. The leaf is in the table, the menu is planned, the vegetables have been forewarned and baking anxiety is in full gear. (Baking is evil.)

What have you all been up to in my absence?

Peace and pondering

i think i'm about 2-3 months behind. something's got hold of me, and i'm having a very hard time shaking it loose.

or is it that Change has settled in, and there is no going back???

at least i did manage to sew today...

anyway. i'm looking forward to whatever you share of your holiday festivities! :-}

Yeah, I think I'm there too, where ever "there" might be (see, told you I was lost). A sudden onset of allergy induced sinus pressure and headache and everything stops, or at least I wish it could.

Congrats on the great grades, I'm sure you will finish up the term with a bang, and churn out more banging pretty goodness for us to drool over =).

I'm always running behind and fighting to catch up. So many things I couldn't begin. Time just keeps going. Great for you on the GPA! Wow.
