Sleepwalking my way through life: Happy Halloween



Happy Halloween

First sleep and now food; I seem to be sacrificing one thing after another to keep this place up to date with my mad cap adventures. I am sitting in the two hour gap between classes, filling my spare time with chatting, organising and the occasional glimpse of Family Guy sitting nicely in my DVD player. I should really be writing essays at the moment, but due to my habits of procrastination I find myself writing this instead. Over the next four weeks I will have five essays to write and hand in, I will be attempting Nano, I will be trying to keep the Strathclyde Writers Society up and running (more on that in another post), and I will be trying to keep this blog full of sporadic updates. Not to mention my daily job and the possibility of moving out (the mid November deadline is becoming less and less likely as I type this). Also add the need to go out and become horribly drunk, watch DVDs, read books, have regular meals and manage a good nights sleep to the list, and you can see why this is coming together in one solid paragraph. This is called a structural technique where I mirror the overwhelming amount of work I have with the constant stream of text. No new lines, no breaks. The only way to top that would be to write one really really long sentence with no sign of commas or full stops in sight to resemble the ranting and rambling that my mind is racing through as I fail to comprehend the amount of work that needs to be done in the short amount of time that it needs to be done in. This is good practice for my novel which, despite all odds, is progressing with each new event I think up for it. Yet Nano begins tomorrow, and I feel apprehension before the race begins, the kind that makes you feel as if you’ll buckle under your own weight and collapse half way through. So many fucking essays, so many fucking things to do in one month. Not to mention relationships with friends, enemies, burning bridges and possible dates. One fucking month.

I’m late for class.

Don't worry, Joe! You can do it! You can do it! Just do it! Nike.

Though I hate to endorse a company that supports child labor.

But then again, I wear their shoes. Blegh.

But my point is: I'M ROOTING FOR YOU, JOE! NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, I STILL THINK YOU'RE AWESOME!

Did I mention that my mother decided to stop for gas this morning when I was already late for school? Heavens.
