Too Much Work

Thursday, 21 November 2002

i spent my birthday asleep. i went to bed at 9:30. maybe i am depressed. i have three weeks to complete 22 pages of papers and to edit my 16mm film. my day began at 8am and will end at 1am tomorrow morning. i went to schedule a haircut for sometime next week and then went to the library to watch the movie i missed on sunday because my film noir teacher forgets students have other things to do besides his class and assigned an extra screening. either that or i was going to watch a film for my 10 page film noir paper and presentation that he also is having us do. too bad the library doesn’t have either film. wtf is that shit? so i wasted 40 minutes walking to and from the library. i also have editing to do the only available time in the editing room is from 10pm-1am today, this is because 6 other intermediate projects and 4 advanced projects all have to use the same 4 steenbecks. 11 film projects + regular classtime + partner’s schedule – Advanced class priority / 4 Steenbecks = late night editing for me. I just want my fucking degree.

Busy Bee

i’m still not quite done yet. i’ve several more hours of filming to do today as well as a paper to write. last night i finally got a bit of time to myself at around 10:30pm when i ate my subway dinner. then i passed out on my bed. after today, everything calms down, at least until monday. i also have to register for my next semester classes today. i’m skipping my film noir class to type this paper and i hope i don’t forget to register. i’ve also got a team meeting at 6 that i must go to. i hope i don’t forget about that either.

in other news, an underexposed picture of me can be found randomly on the ND homepage or the permanent version can be accessed here. I am running errands for the Anthro department and i have a box of brochures on the handcart behind the girl that you probably can’t see. i enjoy splitting clauses to create confusion. and using alliteration to allude to it.
