a day in the life of an academic superstar

i have much to do today, so instead of doing it, i'm going to blog about it. then do it.

so, i started by snoozing the alarm clock (that is across the apartment from my bed) for an hour total in ten minute increments. that was wonderfully lovely.

to continue the lovely, i did the 45 minute dvd kettlebell circuit with this lady:

now that i've done the workout thing, i should get to work reading these things:

(heidegger - an essay that i will have to apply to ->)

(naked lunch, clearly. a weird book about drug trips that probably only makes sense if you are also on drugs. so...naturally, it makes NO sense to me.)

(student papers)

(ugh, so many essays)

also - i'd like to take advantage of this:

good luck to me.'s only 10:30, right? i'm totally fine. : )

Hello Elvis!!

If you could use some of your ,"over priced" eye stuff for sideburns, you could be a VERY SHORT Elvis impersonator----there is always room for 1 more. In case you haven`t heard, we are suffering the remnants of the worst blizzard this year!! Miss you!!

from a delinquent blogger

my blogging habits have been less than satisfactory lately, and for that i wanted to say 'lo siento'.
i would post some pictures to try to make up for it, but for some reason they won't transfer onto my computer. bummers all around. anyways...
love ya'll... and talk to you soon.

home sweet orono

so, i've been back in the lovely state of maine for about twenty-one hours. in those twenty-one hours i have:

+ unpacked
+ tidied the apartment
+ reorganized bookshelf to allow for the coming semester's books
+ cleaned out refrigerator and cabinets to reflect the new amanda's consideration for health
+ made three separate, heavy laden trips to the dumpster
+ paid a surprisingly reasonable electricity bill
+ bought over 100 dollars worth of groceries, this being the first time i have ever spent that much grocery shopping for myself
+ paid too much for gorgeously presented "professional" eye makeup remover, largely because of the gorgeous presentation
+ learned the proper form to use when turning my body into a "fat burning machine" with the kettlebell
+ made my legs sore by practicing the proper form while doing squats with the kettlebell

still to do (things i have not done):

- vacuum apartment
- mop/scrub linoleum areas
- plan jack the ripper class, read materials for assignments
- un- and re- decorate office wall
- read for postscript to transgression class seems do-able, and hopefully it is. i'll keep you posted. i think i'm going to vaccuum and scrub now. apparently i watch ugly betty and grey's anatomy when i'm procrastinating. it's not my's my channel!
