...I showered, put on a new nicotine patch, took my meds, made my bed, made tea and peanut butter crackers for breakfast, read my email, read the news, read Facebook, read LiveJournal, scanned a bunch of documents from my IN box, cleaned the refrigerator, took a walk up to the edge of Sehome Arboretum, made tea and garlic bread for lunch, did dishes, watched a couple of TED Talks, played the Space Game, watched Bill Moyers, took out the garbage and recycling, and wrote in my LJ -- all without smoking a cigarette!

So why do I feel like I've accomplished nothing today?

Funny how sometimes feelings don't reflect reality.

I'm really antsy today. I feel like I'm just filling time until... ?

Because of the procrastination problem I had with putting off projects until the last minute at the end of last quarter, I resolved this quarter to volunteer to do projects and presentations early in the quarter, and get them done with.

Unfortunately, I did this in two classes, ENG 335 and COMM 327, and ended up having to give TWO presentations in one day! Eeek!

So I was up really late last night working on the presentations, then got up early to work on them.

At 11, I ran up to campus to meet with my COMM presentation partner, and do our final walkthrough of the presentation. Then I raced home, put the finishing touches on my ENG presentation, burned the powerpoint on a CD, raced to class, gave my presentation on Frantz Fanon & Algeria (see previous LJ entry), then raced home again because I forgot the tape measures I needed for my COMM presentation. Raced BACK to school, parked illegally in the lot, raced up to COMM class, and gave my presentation there on Nonverbal Communication & Proxemics. Whew.

After class, I went back to my car, and saw I had a parking ticket - I was expecting it, but I don't care it was totally worth it to go get the tape measures - and came home.


Both presentations were well-received, though I won't know my grades on them for a while. I'm just glad they're done, and I don't have to stress about doing these for the rest of the quarter. Yay!

Now I just want to crawl into bed and sleep...
