Trudging though the muck & mire

Spring break last week. Kept busy. It should be the last spring break I ever have…
Sorry for my lack of posting lately; Just feeling burned out with all the school stuff to keep up with and do. Feels like all of my creative energy has been zapped (or atrophied?) which is odd since the only slightly creative thing I get to do these days is cook dinner. Sigh. Someday I’ll be back…
Only ~8weeks of school left…

Oh wow, so yes I am updating from class. No, I’m actively trying to ignore the lecture. If I don’t ignore the lecturer I just might chuck my coffee mug toward the podium. Making this much more difficult than it needed to be and using, for example, a research report that is completely a piece of garbage (i.e., horribly planned, poorly written, and without merit, either statistically or clinically). Seriously???
I think if I turned to violence and threw my mug I would not get my mug back. It is possible that no one would know where it came from and I could escape consequences but that is so highly unlikely in a class of >80 people – someone would notice and mention it. Ah, well. I suppose I should be nice and just ignore.
Had a busy weekend yet again. Final for module Friday afternoon followed by a bachelorette party that evening. Interviews for the next admitting class on Saturday followed by studying & slacking off. Lunch with Skronky on Sunday then off to work.
I really wish I had time to cook or bake something. We’re having a potluck lunch at school later this week so I might just have to wait until then to whip up something amazing. The parents are trying to lose weight so it sounds like it’ll be slim pickin’s at home for the next couple of weeks. (Or I’ll fend for myself a little…) It just seems so cruel to make good smelling, unhealthy food in the vicinity of those trying to not eat as much crappy food.
(It is so hard to keep from banging my head on the table – our class question girl is bantering with the inept professor, competing to see who can be the most ridiculous.)
Okay, on to more mindless surfing around the internet. Love and happy thoughts to all! (apologies for my whining)

From St. Louis to Okieland

Just got in last night from St. Louis (my fraternity's regional meeting, Province, was held there this year) - Whirlwind of stuff to do and catch up on but am optimistic. Had fun so that 8 hour drive both ways was worth it, right? (My rebel group took a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery on Saturday - Would highly recommend it if you ever go to St. Louis)
Prayers for Skronky's dad would be appreciated - He had surgery last week for a stomach tumor & is doing well recovering at the hospital. Has progressed to a clear liquids diet so that's positive.
