Happy Friday, happy weekend! I have some explaining to do about today, the past few weeks, and from this day forward about the progress of the blog and its relation to my life. Don't worry though, I am not going anywhere.
So, hi. I am currently forcing myself to make time for this. It seems to be the case that I never have time for much these days. My nose is constantly in books, my fingers are dancing across paper after paper, and in the meantime, I am trying to execute GRE-styled math problems an hour before midnight each night. In fact, my entire first week of class was work, long and tedious work. The day before class began, that Sunday night, I was reading for class on Monday, the first day of Fall 2018 semester. The problem with this all is that I have focused less on this platform, and it is beginning to show. There is a lack of consistency in my posts because I cannot find time. Furthermore, my brain is so concentrated on my academic interests that there is a lack of flavor, if you will, to the things that I write. I come across as boring, studious. Both of which I probably am, but both of which I try to keep at bay. I suppose I am in search of balance, but I do not see balance on the horizon anytime soon. Therefore, I am apologizing now.
I cannot conform to this blog, this blog must conform to me. So, even if there are posts appearing at odd times and days, just know that that was the one moment of freedom I could afford. So, if you have stopped by throughout the week expecting to find something new and substantive, just know that if it is not there, it will be...eventually. Unless otherwise noted, there will be something every week, even if it is just to stop by and say that the only interesting thing that happened to me that week was the fact I had mini corn dogs. (If you are wondering, yes, I did have mini corn dogs this week, and that may or may not have been the highlight of my week...which has been a stressful one.) Again, I am just offering my apologies in advance, today, and for the weeks past.
On a lighter note, I have been brainstorming ideas for the wall behind my bed. I initially wanted to do a gallery wall with a few photos I had taken (Most of my pictures coming from my Instagram, but I also have a stash that has not been posted), but then I saw the price of frames, thought about the number of pictures I would have printed (Sizes, too.), and I did a complete reversal on that thought (My thought process is: I can invest more funds in a one-bedroom apartment that offers a more permanent stay.). The problem with this bedroom, other bedrooms, and the entire house is that the walls and baseboards are painted the same, tan color (The baseboards and doors being slightly lighter.). It makes me feel like I am inside a Three Musketeers Bar, no joke. Everything is the same, dull color. Thus, I thought about and decided to duplicate and expand on an art project I once completed in high school. Hopefully, the supplies for a larger version of an old art project will be fairly inexpensive and available, especially because it will be almost a "wall" of gift wrapping tissue paper. Other than buying supplies, probably cringing at the cost of supplies, and doing homework, my weekend will be more about catching up and sleeping late. But, a late weekend makes me happy. Have a cheery weekend.
P.S. The blog turns the big O-N-E next week, and I will be laying out a few thoughts on it!
