.. along with business have led to my unfortunate neglect of this project. Not that it's much of a project at all, yet anyway. I'll figure out where I'm going with it soon. For now, I've a pile of work to do tomorrow and I'm off to Tedfest on Saturday, so a proper post shall follow soon after.

Don't they look familiar?


It's from here! Whoops!

Everyday oughta be a bad day for you

I've set up a make-shift study area in my room using the ironing board as a desk, one of the kitchen chairs and my bedside lamp. I've got all the diet coke in the world; I burnt the popcorn but that's ok. I can now only open to door about four inches, but I'm only allowing myself bathroom leave, and I'll solve that problem when it arises. I'm about to hide my O2 internet stick on myself,and I'm gonna have the most productive week there ever was. Assignment city AHOY.

Karen O Love

Lately I can't sleep. Or rather, there were several nights where I couldn't and now I'm in a terrible cycle of sleeping into the afternoon and being wide awake most of the night.

I felt a bit tired the other day, having been out the night before, so I decided going to bed at ten and getting a full nights sleep would cure me once and for all. I awoke, feeling completely refreshed, to realise it was only gone HALF ELEVEN. And of course, sleep did not come again for hours and hours and hours. AAAAH.

I know exactly what I need to do. I need to force myself to get up early, be shattered for a whole day, get a full night's sleep and be a freshed-face scamp by the time the following morning comes. Trouble is, however much I intend on doing this, once that alarm goes off to awaken me, I find myself justifying more sleep over most things, however important. Actually, half the time I turn off the alarm in my sleep.

I'm going to have to make concrete morning plans. Something I can't get out of. An appointment? I'm not sick though. Maybe a breakfast date with a friend who'll get a bit narky if I don't show? Hmmm. I'm not sure I should try and trick Morning Me, she's outsmarted me every step so the way so far.

I'm home for the night and got to drive the car for a whole hour today so I'm feeling very pleased with myself altogether.

January was a good month; a trip to Germany, the commencement of long chain of twenty first birthday parties and a general shirking of responsibility to mention but a few of the things I've been up to.

MA applications coming SOON. I'm going to pay a visit to the exhibition in the RDS the week after next and hopefully set my mind to something. It seems like I'm leaving it awfully late, but surely they wouldn't hold the exhibition after deadlines had closed? Must look into that.

I can't make up my mind about the General Election on the 25th of this month. Despite having been on the register for over two years, I have yet to vote. I want to vote this time, but it's just everything is so fucked, and everyone so biased it's difficult to come to a logical decision. Not an Enda fan, I know that much. Ugh, maybe it'll become clearer for me closer to the time.
