Calls for another list. Maybe as much as paragraphs.
*I thought I liked “Portlandia” because it makes fun of (crazy) Oregon, but maybe it’s already stale on episode 6. I feel it’s more of a sketch comedy now, then finding different aspects of Oregon (weed? anti-vaccine?) to mock. I’ll give it another short chance before I give up on it.
*Where did Aimee Mann come from, how has she been on the scene so long, and why am I just now hearing about her? I saw her play herself as a maid on “Portlandia” and she seems like one cool gal. Like a 1990’s coffee-house kinda vibe. Apparently, she was popular in the 1980s. . . I’m listening to her now as I type this, and before when I was re-writing my class notes.
*The above re-writing of notes is not (just) an OCD thing–I promise! This instructor uses over-head sheets and random organization during lecture. So my notes are not only ugly, and unbearable to study, but scribbled unpon and difficult to decipher. As a means of getting it all in a form I can understand in the future, and studying, I write them in outline form right after class.
*I was paranoid about my stupid short paper. I cited my sources, which you should always, always do on a formal (college) paper, but I fret no one else did. Also, I did NOT count the citations in my word count. And because I included one (10 word) statistic, my paper went over max-length by 9 words. So it looks all crazy and long, and I hope they don’t take the time to do an exact count, and I really hope they don’t take off a ton of points for over-shooting the length.
*I have this terrible habit of avoiding eye contact and mumbling. It’s partially, from work, where I’m legit busy with my hands and multi-tasking most of the time (exp: asking about appetite while I’m down on the floor weighing a cat), but it’s also from shyness. And maybe some sort of anti-social aversion? I offered to take everyone’s assignment to the prof after class and noticed myself awkwardly averting my gaze like some sort of serial killer or something. I need to keep mindful of this in casual situations, because I know I don’t do it in formal instances like a job interview.
*Speaking of jobs, my boss gave me a timeline (finally!) of most assuredly before the semester and probably before the end of October for my schedule change! I will be counting the hours until I’m off of Fridays!!!!!!!!!
*I feel like I’m doing a little better with studying, but at the cost of running. It seems like whatever I do first in the day is the KIND of day I am going to have. If I work first, the day is wasted with work tiredness. If I run first, it’s a fitness day. When I study, it’s a productive school day. I’m not sure why this is, or how I can feel accomplished at all three on the same day. . .
