After spending the day with students in the library, running errands, and fighting with a moody copy machine in the English Department, I’m tired and struggling with a headache. I’m more than ready for this week to end. Fortunately tomorrow is Thursday, my last day of classes till Monday. Probably I sound pathetic–probably I am pathetic–not to mention irritable and bitchy and so, so sad that S. is leaving for Asia on Sunday. It’s going to be a long couple of months. But thank God for Skype! Without it I wouldn’t be able to survive the separation. At least, it allows us to talk for free and even see one another via web-cam. So, rather than dwelling on the negative, perhaps, I should be thankful for the technology that will allow us to survive 2 months apart.
However, I don’t have much meaningful stuff to share tonight. I’m too tired to create or use words inventively. I need to call this quits and allow this to be my least inspired post to date. It’s okay, right? Will you try reading again on another day, when I feel more human and less like a neaderthal near death?
