oh, horrors.

So, I’m totally stressed here. I’m still at work and I have to be here for another hour going over things with 2 people who really need me to tell them what to do (at least in this instance), and I feel like if I had just started studying one week earlier I would have been fine, and I feel like I”ll never figure out how to calculate the total % reduction in volatile solids as a municipal waste water stream passes through a clarifier, and then an aerator, and I feel very taken advantage of, except it’s my own fault that I’m still here working, because I didn’t say no.

All in all, I am so sick and tired of being here working when I have a Very Important Test to take day after tomorrow. All my week long zen moments where I thought of this test as being a PSAT type of thing and at least it would be a good practice experience – no, that’s not the real me talking. That’s me trying to trick the real me, who is screaming you canNOT fail you canNOT take this over again you canNOT go through this stress of working full time and having a life and having personal relationships and trying to study all at the same time.

So, I really really really really really hope I pass. I really hope I can get out of here by 7. I really hope I can go home, get a good nights sleep, and wake up at 6AM or 7AM and study like crazy. I’ve got a doctors appt. at 2:30 and I really don’t want to work hard after that. But I have so much left to do, so freakin’ much.


I am impossible. Photoessay.

Y’all know I’m taking the PE on friday. This is how hopeless I am: Sat. was my day to really start studying for real. But I had a really hard time getting started.

my studies. more yuck.

I was all set up, but then I thought “maybe I should go clean out the fridge.”
So I also ended up making a TANG PIE, so as to use up the materials that have been in the fridge for months and months and months.

and then I washed the dishes. To tell you the truth, I washed the dishes like, 5 times that day.


I also cleaned off the counter. it really needed it.

And then I cleaned up the hallway. Trust me, it’s much cleaner than it was.

This is the best, I made to do lists for every room in the house, and taped them to the walls.
to do lists lists - living room
lists - bathroom lists - hall
lists - big closet lists - little closet

After that, I thought to myself: “self, you have a lot of teas, and you’re secretly ashamed of it. How about you sort those teas and figure out which ones you can drink right up and start getting rid of them. How ’bout it, self?”

And then I drank eight pots of tea. I’m not kidding. I finished off 5 different varieties of tea and put 3 more kinds into my bag for work usage.

I also did my laundry. I washed some blankets and my sleeping bag, and put the whole caboodle away.

and then I thought, hey, my friends are apple picking right now and are going to bring me apples. I’d better use up these old store-bought apples! So I baked them with brown sugar and butter. Only I didn’t have any brown sugar, so I made some from white sugar and molasses.

and then I ate some apples. YUM.

I thought I’d better start studying, but I couldn’t find any highlighters. So I got out my pencil box and sorted it out. no highlighters. I did get rid of a lot of dead pens, though.

Then I relaxed with a nice piece of tang pie. It was super good, I only used 2/3 the amt of sweetened condensed milk and I didn’t feel like I’d catch diabetes when I ate it.

Seriously, though, the most procrastinatory thing I did was to take pictures of everything I did to procrastinate. I am amazing at procrastination. If only THAT were on my test!
