sleep deprivation and windy afternoons

today i have napped twice.

this morning i made eggs with spinach and red cabbage.

this day time i have practiced kanji, grammar, vocabulary, watched an episode of Merlin, and decided that Thursday night I am going to surprise my roommate with Dominos pizza.

because i can.

one final tonight over the texts i have read this entire semester. ah, cumulation. one final tomorrow morning @ 10am. which means don’t wake up until 8am, right? (: right.

meditative music is meditative. now to write more kanji, practice more grammar, flashcard more vocabulary, and go for a nice walk along the campus to get some energy back into my bones. why? because it’s necessary, fun, and by golly i don’t need a break so much as i need to remember this 日本語。

it’s so relaxing….

knowing that you have time to finish everything when your days aren’t limited to the whole “wake up” and then “go to sleep” mantra. just working through it regardless of the time and absent from it, rather then bound to it is wonderful!

even better is saying, okay, I have class at 12:30 and a meeting @ 4 and then class @ 5, but other than that I’m free to do whatever is really incredible. if I also just say the first thing I do when I wake up is work out (even if I go sleep after that) then it’s even better. because really, i love working out early in the morning as soon as I wake up. so yes, i’ll be getting up around 5:30 I think to go workout for an hour every day, and then i’ll come back, make breakfast, or i’ll stay out and eat breakfast depending on my mood. and every day will overall be fantastic because i can sleep, eat, and do work whenever I bloody feel like it.

this week’s before Thursday projects:

 Paradise Lost Research Paper Draft 16 pages single spaced edited and printed
 Playwriting One Act Play Completed (in semi-draft form) 16-20 pages AND
 Potential meeting with professor about the play? during office hours, at least emailed
 Japanese Speech Draft Script!
 Japanese Test on Wednesday;
 Japanese Homework on Tuesday (for a chapter I'm supposed to be ahead on);

Also, quote that won’t be said directly, but will be felt through mind-waves: “I’m sorry; there can be nothing between us. I don’t care if you do drugs, or you drink the bottle dry, or if you had sex with every women you met before me. But when you badmouth the rain…that’s just going too far. No one disses my rain.”

I’m beginning to do work better in the morning…

…which isn’t so much scary as it is startling. I’m not a morning person, or rather, I was not much of a morning person. Yet, I find myself drawn to waking up and then just getting stuff done. On the plus side, it leaves me with a lovely little interval of about 30min to do with what I please when I don’t work out; and when I do work out, I have just enough time to do everything.

pues en la vista retrospectiva, miro bueno por mi fortuna en mi vida y en mi escuela y en mi lingüistica y en mi jápones. pero, todos los días trabajo mucho que mi academica, sin embargo, me gusta la vida universidad y no será que cualquie otra manera.

Now, I just have to make sure I actually memorize this little piece of dialogue and I should be fine. Hey, wait, look at that! I’m actually typing about doing the Japanese work, rather than just talking about doing it. I think this is an accomplishment.
