I am really tired.
Everything is funny.
Everything is beautiful, and nothing hurt.
No wait, that’s not it.
I am… a seagull.
I am… an actress.
I am… over-worked and completely stressed out.
I am attempting to find comfort in frozen yogurt and hard cider.
I am reading and re-reading, copying information onto index cards, thinking deep thoughts, trying to make the puzzle pieces slide into place and keep them slid once they get there, trying to control the number of books I have in my house, trying to make sure I don’t rack up overdue fees on anything.
I am prepping my syllabus for Acting I, scanning readings, setting up my online bulletin board for my students.
I am bracing for the new semester and all the meetings that come with it.
I am evaluating my fall wardrobe and what pieces I need to acquire/dispense with.
I am both praising and cursing the coming of seasonal pumpkin flavored treats. This is not going to be good for my diet but OH MAN DO I LOVE ME SOME PUMPKIN.
I am counting the days until this is all over and the next chapter begins.
I am cursing myself for counting the days because that means I have to face the reality of this test actually happening.
I am going back to work.
