Monday Morning

It is always hard for me to get up Monday mornings, the start of the work week. I always feel that if I could just put it off, then my work week will go so much better. It never does. Last week I didn't work on Monday, so Tuesday felt like Monday all day.

It isn't that I have a five day work week. I wish that I did. I only work one to two days, and I go to school two days. However, the two days at school are also from 8:30 in the morning to sometimes 10:00 at night. So really, I do have a four day work week I just don't get paid for all of it. Even when I am at the office working, if I run out of things to actively do, then I "clock out" and work on non-work things. Today, for example, I need to take a midterm for my Budgeting class. That will be quite a few hours of my time.
The days just seem to drag on forever.

Happy Friday

TGIF! With all of my midterms this has been a tough week. And yes, I still have one more midterm to finish over the weekend. However, after I finish that and the two papers I need to write and clean the house, I should be able to just read, knit, and anything else I want to fill my time on.

Two more weeks before my airplane trip to Texas to visit Jen's parents. I am looking forward to it this year. I am trying to get all of my school work done in advance so that I can enjoy the week.

After that there will be just four more months before Jen and I move down there. Her dad is so excited. He already has a place picked out for us to live. We will get to see it during the week we are there.

In the knitting world, I am almost finished with the first skein on this last baby blanket that I want to do for a while. On my other project, I need to weave in the ends to the afghan, then wash it, block, and be done with it. It is the first afghan that I have made for myself. After I finish the baby blanket, I hope to do some work on the sweater for Alyssa. So far I have only managed to get the back done. As soon as I get home, (posting from the office again), I will take some pictures of what I am talking about. Even though I know no one is going to ever read this, it is nice to have my accomplishments out in cyberspace.

On that note, everyone have a wonderful and safe weekend!

Ignoring daily life!

So over the weekend I went to see SuckerPunch. I thought it was awesome, but it made me think alot about myself. When I was a kid I had no friends, so I lived in my imagniation. When I finally did find a friend, we used to make up stories about ourselves. We would be supper heroes and go around saving the world.

Now as an adult, I get lost in the books I read and the movies I watch. I find myself incorporating these fantasy stories into the stories I used to make up, because as it turns out, I never stopped the internal story. It has changed through the years, just as I have changed. That's why you see the name Serenity attached to almost everything I do. She is my alter ego, the person I want to be. Yes I lot of what happens in her world is physically impossible, but there in lies the fun. Who wouldn't want to be able to take names and kick ass? Who wouldn't want to have supper human abilities? Who wouldn't want to do anything they wanted to?

So, so what if I lose time wandering around in my mind. Who cares if I sometimes wish Serenity was really me and Monica was the fantasy? That I could get past the crap that has been my life? That I could make dreams happen?
