Only a few days remain before school starts again. Yes, everyone else started months ago. My school has schedule issues. Anyway, the point is this: summer is over and I am as stressed out as ever. I may be at the people-are-looking-at-me-funny level of stressed-outedness. Perhaps, I'm thinking, it would not be a bad idea to relax a wee bit before classes actually start, and never mind that I have class reading assignments already.
So I'm begging for an extension on my LR assignment, which I would need anyway, and heading over to my brother's house for a few days where I can sit in a hot tub, guzzle festive beverages, see my parents, and generally remember what it's like to be a person rather than an automaton. Posting may be light over the next few days.
I checked with my brother to see if he had adequate supplies of vodka. He informs me he's swimming in the stuff. We're good!
