not dead. just busy. and tired.

i realised today that i don't have enough hours in the day to finish everything right now. so this list is for me. not you. soon this will not be a place for listing how i'm ill or what i'm busy with. soon it will be for more interesting things. as soon as i have time to think about things again. which is probably after may 10.

until then.

i need to email arne and explain that i can't finish everything by friday, because library materials have disappeared.
i need to finish stupid reports for people.
i need to finish other stupid reports for other people.
i need to finish two sound assignments by friday.
i need to write sound journals and assignments by friday.
i need to eat.
i need to decide if i want to run for the CJSF board. well, i do want to run. i need to decide if i should right now.
i need to translate 60 lines of beowulf by 11 wednesday morning.
i need to go to tons of a couple more meetings.
i need to plan next week.
i need to write something up for a proposal that i may not even go through with, but i've gotta pretend that i will for the moment.
i need to write an application for something that i know i want to do, as soon as everything else is under control.
i need to go to class.
i need to mail things.
i need to write a letter of reference.
i need to go to other meetings.
i need to clean up the kitchen. and other parts of the house.
i need to get time to let everything about my new job actually sink in.
i need to arrange more meetings so that things are done by next week.
i need to find time to fix up a training manual well enough to send a draft for edits, something that should have been done today. it's not going to happen right now.

all of this needs to be done by friday afternoon, latest. ALL of it. and i'm probably forgetting things right now. oh, and i need to sleep somewhere in there too. and rest. because i think all my rushing around since monday has undone any healing that my saturday of rest allowed. and no more volunteering to help other people this week, because i keep doing that on top of everything else, and i'm not going to get anything of mine finished if i keep that up.

fuck. it's only been 2 days of the new semester, i'm only taking 1 class, and i'm already massively behind.

in other news, i have a three hour radio show next monday. and i may get to go on a trip in a few weekends. and i forgot a birthday or two. and we made a bonfire in the house on the weekend. and i was forced to rest (not that i was able to do much else) on friday. and people let me cut their hair. and i got a french press. and we're on a decorating kick here in the basement. and it's time for tank tops and short skirts.

and stuff.

edit: so there's one thing off that list. though it's now 2am and i still haven't gone to bed.
edit2: more things done. still not everything. still not the important things, sadly. oh well.
