Yeah, I know

It's been a while. Life got pretty crazy back there somewhere and in between crazy exam days and playing catch-up with the rest of my life this fine little blog got lost in the shuffle. These things happen sometimes when you're a university student.

Now that first year is over what is there to say. I'm glad it's done and I'm glad I can get some rest while I prepare for Organic Chemistry. I'm still not sure what to think though. My head is still awash with stress and craziness. I'm trying to mellow out but it's hard to when I'm moving out, trying to finish up my last things at House Famous, and trying to keep tabs on camp's full-time staff. Someday there will be rest, and I get glimpses of it, little days of peace here and there, but right now it's time to finish things. Like this post for example.

The Wednesday Morning Post (Later Than Usual Edition)

Yes, it's that time of the week again. The time when I get by butt down to a location with internet access (I.E. the library or my parents house) and write this little piece out for all of you who still happen to be reading. I actually almost forgot to write this today but then I looked at the clock and realized that there's only an hour left in the morning so I better write it out.

What is there to be said about life right now? One word: Exams. Every December and April, university students get to go through the time honoured tradition of cramming large amounts of information into their brains for the purposes of cramming into rooms and writing lots of things on legal sheets of paper. It's a wonderful time of year, and the best part about it is that it signals the end of my time in first year.

While it's a little early for retrospect at this point (Seeing how I actually haven't written any exams yet) I will save that for a post after I'm finished exams but I will say this. University has been good and I would go so far as to say that it's been everything I've been looking for and a whole lot more reading.

Sadly my friends, that's about all that's going on right now and seeing how I still have a pile of reading and studying left to do, it's best that I go now. I hope you enjoy this most auspicious of Wednesdays though. Fight on brother.

Don't Panic

Tomorrow, come hell or high water, there will be a Wednesday morning post. Exam studying be damned!

The Wednesday Morning Post

This Wednesday morning is a great Wednesday morning. I am awake, I have had a delicious breakfast (care of McDonald's), the library is empty, I am at school to write the Wednesday morning post earlier than normal, I am nearly finished the winter term, and I am going to visit my girlfriend in two more days. Life is good.

So why is life good? Well it wasn't always like this, let me tell you. There was a while back there where life was not good. In fact, I would go so far as to say that life was bad back there. However, while it is unfortunate that life was once bad, life is now very very good.

I recently purchased my Organic Chemistry textbook. As lame as it sounds, sometimes I look over to it's fresh crisp pages and its inviting green colour and I pick it up and read a few pages. Some part of me is thoroughly confused as to why, when I'm not in a course, I find reading the textbook fun, but as soon as I have to do readings and such, I immediately don't want to read the textbook. It's outrageous.

Yesterday and Sunday I spent some time sitting down and writing down on a page all the half finished songs that I had. I found that somewhere in the last year or so since I did my RPM album, I managed to write 16 half-finished songs of varying quality. I think if I actually put my mind to it and set about to finish a group of them that sounded similar I could probably have a decent start on a full album. I don't know when I would ever have time to do this but I thought it was interesting that even when I'm not trying, I manage to write songs. It's like some kind of habit now or something.

My browser keeps crashing and I'm afraid I might lose the rest of this edition of the Wednesday morning post so I'm gonna call it a day folks. Happy hump day and enjoy the rest of your week. It's all downhill from here.
